Now that Lebron’s out of the playoffs, supposedly national attention has switched to the teams that are still actively pursuing the NBA championship…right? Ha! Unless you’ve been asleep atop Olympus Mons, you’ve probably heard all the ridiculous speculation as to where Lebron will end up next season. Allow me to be the first to say, who friggin cares?!?!?
Just kidding, because I am totally obsessed with it. I read every “insider report,” every tweet, and every doggone ESPN special report. If I could be a fly on Lebron’s wall I’d eat crap for a day. I mean, there has never been more anticipation, more speculation, more outrageous media coverage for any athlete’s free agency, ever. I’m pumped.
I don’t even want to speculate about what he’s going to do, because I truly feel that all the so called “insiders” and reporters have no idea what’s in Lebron’s heart. None of us do.
Because I have a blog, and two loyal readers, I would be remiss in my duty if I didn’t say a lil somethin, somethin for the people.
First off, Lebron’s not going to the Clippers. Thats just stupid. Second, Lebron’s not going to the Nets. He’s not spending two years in Newark before he gets to BK. That leaves us with Chicago, New York, Miami, Cleveland or DC. Yes, The Nations Capital, Chocolate City, The District of Crime, is a viable option for Lebron. Now because Bill Simmons is one of two ESPN writers I like, the other being Jayson Stark, I’ll dish the assist to him on this one. This is from back in Febuary.
“Let me throw this scenario at you, and you give me odds,” Simmons said. “Washington somehow voids Arenas’s contract, they trade Butler, they trade Jamison. They have all this cap room all of the sudden. They lure LeBron.
They traded Butler, they traded Jamison….only one more move to make.
Sadly, I don’t see it happening. Honestly, Lebron strikes me as a loyal dude and is probably gonna stay in Cleveland. Also, with the way in which the media has evolved in the last ten years, the global connectivity, widespread access to information and easy access to consumer products, market size is becoming more and more irrelevant.
If I were him I’d buy a penthouse in Hoboken and play for the Knicks. But thats just me.
Gotta admit, the look fits him.
