NY Knicks are going after LeBron James: report

LeBron James isn't coming to New York to do anything other than to shop, make business deals, hang out with Jay-Z, and play at Madison Square Garden — for the opposing team.

Welp, here comes the predictable rumors and ridiculous calculus people do about the possibility of LeBron James coming to New York. 

 

After Thursday's hiring of David Fizdale, a coach well-liked by James, the rumor mill is geared up. Everyone knows the Knicks are prepared to open up their purse strings for the top-end free agent, and will likely make a run after the Cleveland star.

(About billboard asking him to sign with New York) Same reaction that I had to every last one of them this year. I think its very humbling that cities and organizations want me to play for them, especially at this juncture in my career. So, thats it.

The problem, of course, is that Kristaps Porzingis ACL injury alone would be enough to scare James away, considering the Latvian big man may sit out all of next season to heal.

 

Outside of Three-6 Latvia, what's on the roster to be excited about? They have a lottery pick coming their way, but the chances of them getting to a top three selection - where they could pick Deandre Ayton, Luka Doncic, or Marvin Bagley - are minuscule.

 

Look, let's get out in front of this now. James isn't coming to New York to do anything other than to shop, make business deals, hang out with Jay-Z, and play at Madison Square Garden for the opposing team.
