    LeBron should give him a chuck of his salary to make up the difference.

    He should be compensated just for living in Cleveland.
    It's all fun and games until Lake Erie catches on fire.

    Honestly, I doubt that Miller is hurting for money.

    Heck, I'm not hurting much for money, at lest not yet, being just retired. And I am pretty sure that Miller is in a heck of a lot better shape than I am financially.

    Doesn't Miami still have to pay him about $6 million a year on top of what he will make in Cleveland? Not bad at all.

    Yes. He didn't take a pay cut since Miami pays the difference between his old salary. It would only be a pay cut if he could get more than his old salary somewhere else, which he can't.

    I don't think this is correct. The difference will only be made up for one year. He had two years $12.8 million left when "amnestied." One year was spent in Memphis.

    He took a two year $5.5 million contract in lieu of a three year $12 million contract. Assuming equal pay each year in all the contracts, he gave up approximately $5.25 million minus whatever new contract he could get in year three (veteran minimum $1.6 million for that year).

    Yes I realized he only had one more amnesty year left after I posted. So with 3 years 12 mil he'd get 14.4 and as opposed to 9.15 + whatever he gets in year 3 in the Cleveland deal. If he gets another 4 mil offer then a wash, if not he loses money. Since everyone thinks the cap is going to skyrocket then he'll probably get that money back.

    No problem. I think he needs to make $5.25 million in year three for it to be a wash. That isn't taking into account living in Cleveland compared to Denver though. Better make that $20 million. :cool:

    Mark Twain
    Uncommon Sense
    &
    CLEVELAND
    Mark Twain believed that Cleveland
    would be the ideal place to call
    home. Twain was so smitten by the
    city that he made a strong bid to
    settle here and tried to buy into
    the then Cleveland Herald newspaper
    as an editor and partner.The asking
    price was too high, however, and
    Twain instead became editor and
    part-owner of the Buffalo {N.Y.}
    Express. But Cleveland continued
    to ride high in his affections.

    RTA will take you anywhere..

    CLEVELAND & the UNITED WAY -
    The nation's first modern Community Chest
    was born in Cleveland, where a program
    for allocating campaign funds was developed.
    Cleveland earned a national reputation for innovation in organized philanthropy. In the early years, civic leaders organized agencies to address emerging social issues. Increasing specialization in fields such as law, medicine, and the fine arts resulted in tremendous growth in private giving. The first sustained campaign in the United States to raise funds for multiple charitable organizations regardless of religious sponsorship occurred in Cleveland. The Cleveland Foundation, also created at this time, premiered the concept of the community foundation.
    The first healthcare conversion foundation in the United States was established in Cleveland.

    The Cleveland Area: "The library capital of America."
    No less than a dozen local libraries and systems rank in the top 10 in
    their population categories, according to Hennen's American Public

    The crown jewel, of course, is the Cleveland Public Library, one of the
    largest public research institution in the country. It was one of the first
    libraries to open its shelves to the public, one of the first to have a
    female director and the first to offer e-books to patrons.
    CLEVELAND: a city with Character.
    Cleveland's backbone is a city of ordinary average normal hard working folks with big hearts, who use commonsense - native good judgment - and a well-balanced approach to life,- it was character {not education} that first built our city, and it is again character "not education" that is man's greatest need and man's greatest safeguard ....

    "Once they've seen L.A., Vegas, Orlando, Miami and New York, they want to see the True Heart of America," bureau spokesperson has said.
