Outgoing GM Rod Thorn said "Releasing our last player frees us up to offer LeBron our entire salary cap, estimated at over $56 million per year". When asked how the team will compete in the talent-laden NBA with only one player on the roster, Thorn indicated he'd leave that problem to his successor. But he mentioned the possibility of randomly drawing the names of four fans before each tip-off. This would not only add excitement to the pre-game festivities and boost attendance, it would allow LeBron to shoot every possession and make him a shoo-in for MVP the rest of his career. Of course it would also weaken his chances of winning a championship but, as Thorn noted, "He can always buy a ring, who else is going to pay him $56m/year"?
