Tom Izzo told the Cavs "No Thank You." in what is a relief to Michigan
State fans everywhere. Of course, this is quite a contrast to the many
Michigan State fans that didn't want Izzo when Jud Heathcote retired.

      I don't know how the Cavs ever expected Izzo to make such a huge
decision without having an ironclad committment from Lebron.  I mean,
let's face it, only an idiot would leave a plum position like Izzo's
(state hero, etc.) to coach a Cleveland team without Lebron James.

I agree that it's odd to publicize who you're talking to with regard
to the position.  Obviously, whether James is there is a major point
of consideration.  That being said, I'm not sure if it's better to
have James than not.  Phenom talent yes, but I'm not sure if he's the
type to take a team on his shoulders through adversity.

Here's the thing ... he knows that Cleveland can give him more salary
than anyone else and the decision to offer that is likely on the table
already.  So then it comes down to externals ... how much can he get
off the court and who is he going to play with.  He knows the Cavs
financial situation cap-wise and that Gilbert will get just about
anyone he wants to coach.  So what's left to decide?

If he leaves Cleveland without a title, he'll likely be treated there
worse than Modell.  Further, if he gravy-trains it somewhere else,
he'll never be looked upon as one of the greatest of all time.  Not
unlike how Kobe is looked upon compared to Jordan.

With the lead time heading into this, it would seem like everything is
on the table.  Stringing it along ... what's the point?  It's not like
the Knicks are going to suddenly double the Cavs salary or that he's
going to convince enough superstars to come to Cleveland to play due
to their cap issues.

If the goal is to maximize profit, then announce that you're not
staying.  If the goal is to build a legendary legacy, then say that
you're staying and work with the marketing folks to maximize what you
can.  This isn't the 50's where you *have* to be in NY.  Heck a few
goodwill events in China will more than make up for any difference in
marketing between NY and Cleveland.

Exactly.  Second prize is two weeks in Cleveland, first prize is one
week, etc.

No doubt.

My parents grew up SW of Cleveland so I ended up being a
Browns/Indians fan.  Dad tried to make me a Ohio State fan too, but
it didn't stick.

That said, I don't like the city of Cleveland nor most of Ohio in
general.  It's just a depressing place to be.

Only for the past few years. They played for many years in Richfield
which was halfway to Akron.
