LeBron hits the recruiting trail on Twitter

If all this positive lockout talk is real, LeBron James better get his recruiting done quickly. Because he won't be able to (publicly) tamper after that.

LeBron took to Twitter Thursday and randomly dropped tweets about hoping to see Jamal Crawford -- a free agent -- and Steve Nash -- not a free agent -- in a Heat uniform.

Evidently, LeBron doesn't understand salary caps and all that stuff. Because not only is it pretty much impossible for either Crawford or Nash to join the Heat, but with a new NBA system, it might not even be possible for LeBron to keep Chris Bosh.

Let's fantasize though. How would Nash play alongside Dwyane Wade and LeBron? Nash is primarily a pick-and-roll point guard that prefers a lot of good movement off the ball. That's not exactly something LeBron excells at. If Nash joined LeBron and Wade, the team would have a bunch of offensive ability, but in terms of how they'd play together, it might take another full season to figure that out.

The ONLY way the Heat could trade for Nash under the current cap rules would be a deal involving LeBron, Wade or Bosh. Everyone just had a quick min-debate in their head about "Nash for Bosh?" but the answer is no.

It is possible though, but not at all likely, that Phoenix settle a buyout with Nash that would free him to try and win a title once the lockout ends or maybe with the amnesty clause. Good luck getting Robert Sarver to do that though.

Lebron MVP, best player?  He needs more super stars.  Miami has 2 of the top 5 players
and 3 of the top 12. Maybe the crying on every call that does not go his way. I never saw
a player get away with more fouls than Lebron.  He wants to go down as one of the top
players ever win a champion with what you have.   Highest payroll all these supstars. 
They sure start the season as a champion in their eyes. With their own cermonies.

Awesome! If MEbron can get Nash and whoever else he wants then he can add even more rings to last years championship. Oh wait....he didn't win a ring lat year. But still, if you ask MeBron he will have 22 rings if the Heat could only get these guys in a "Heat uni" heck, let's go ahead and throw in KoME Bryant and carMElo as well. Still won't matter as MEbron will never be better than Jordan! Long live the Queen!

Just when you think its impossible for LeFail to make himself look any more foolish he does it again. How long before he doesnt have enough talent in Miami to win him a ring? And if Im Bosh Im staring to feel abit outta place, first he ruins his name by running to Miami to be with his buds but now its starting to look like he is the odd man out and wont have a hand in picking his team if LeDouche somehow recruits more TALENT to south beach and he is the other half of a trade. Seriously though how many guys does LeQuit think he can talk into going there for almost nothing while he makes bank.

I can't wait for Heat and Lebron fans to try to justify this move by "King James".

Are you kidding me Lebron?  Can you do anything on your own?  You make me sick.  Crawford and Nash would be idiots to join the heat.  Lebron will never be a superstar if he's going to have everyone else do his work for him.  Lazy bastard.

Now that Dirk Nowitzki got his ring Nash is next in my eyes who deserves it, but not with the heat. Phoenix should respect their future hall of fame point guard and give him a shot at winning the title and trade him to the Lakers. Nash's window to win a championship is closing fast and Kobes got 2 maybe 3 more years if the lakers are lucky and Nash would solve their point guard problems on offense, but they would also need to get a quick defensive guard to stop guys like barea from driving whenever he feels like it. Fisher cant keep up on either end and Blake was a bust last year. Every ones always saying Lebron cant win with 2 other all stars on his team....... wasn't their 4 all stars on the Celtics last year? There certainly were and they got destroyed by Miami in the playoffs, and the Celtics 4 all stars compliment each other better then Miami does, yes the Celtics are older but they have also been playing together longer and have better team chemistry. Miami needs 1 more SOLID rotation player not on all star, Besides Lebron, Wade, and Bosh. The supporting cast of Mike Miller, Haslem, Joel Anthony and Chalmers isnt strong at all, besides maybe Haslem when hes healthy but everyone else was a bunch of misfits and Miami really needs to find players who fit better then who they had last year and they will be back in the finals.

I guess two superstars arent enough for the "Akron Choke Artist" to get a ring...Hilarious, he bails on cleveland because he supposedly had no help. He than goes to Miami with two studes and still collapses in the 4th quarter. Typical akron man....relying on others to help him out. Its not like he looks at e-bay to feed himself and pay his child support to his divorced ol lady.
