Everyone is so focused on the Shaq-Cavs deal -- for good reason: The Cavs have one year left to make a run at the title before LeBron bolts for New York.
(Don't think that the Cavs "investing" in the team through Shaq will keep LeBron around after next season -- like Shaq will be useful after a title run next year?)
Anyway, it strikes me as strange that we started talking about "LeBron 2010" at least 2 years ago. It will peak roughly one year from today.
So doesn't it seem about time to start talking about the next great transcendent Free Agent of the Century move -- Kevin Durant's free agency in 2012? (Sorry, Thunder fans: You're up next.)
As a Wizards fan, I would like to see the team take three cracks at competing for a title over the next three years, then clear the cap room for 2012 to rebuild around Durant, a D.C. native.
What: Too early?
