Today will be jam-packed with more LeBron-mania than ever before. Today analysts, writers, broadcasters, heck even the president will be speculating over where James will end up at the end of tonight.
With sources reporting that James is leaning towards joining Miami, we have certainly learned over the last few weeks that nothing is definite until it’s confirmed.
So where the hell is LeBron going?
Breaking Down James’ Top Three
Believe it or not, I strongly think that Heat fans are sipping on way too much LeBoshade.
In a fantasy world James teamming up with Wade and Bosh would be absolutely amazing. Three of the best players in the league would dominate the NBA for years to come, winning countless championships and ultimately ending their careers as hall of famers and one possibly as the best to have ever played.
Realistically, it doesn’t really make much sense. And with the reputation that Pat Riley has, it’s unlikely that James joins forces with Wade and Bosh to create the three-headed super hero, LeBoshade.
By the numbers, if James were to squad up with the duo the team would be forced to not only shed each superstars salary by more than three million each, but sign numerous players to minimum contracts.
And with the Collective Bargaining Agreement set to expire after next season, it doesn’t seem probable that seven or eight free-agents would be willing to take major pay-cuts just to team up with Ghidorah (Japanese Three-Headed monster).
But I must admit, playing on a team with two superstars does seem extremely enticing.
While Miami has an attractive roster (although it’s composed of four players) the Bulls lineup is much more impressive from a complete stand-point.
James would have a coach who even though has never been a head-coach before, has the tools and knowledge to emerge as a Coach of the Year candidate year in and year out.
In addition, he’d team up with one of the best upcoming point-guards in the league, a power-forward that he played with during his rookie season, and a young center that has potential to lead the league in rebounds per game every season.
The Bulls signed Carlos Boozer to convince LeBron James that Chi-town is the place to be, and with enough money to provide James with a maximum contract, what reason does LeBron have to not bolt from Cleveland to play with the Bulls?
