    Default no Nike incentives for LeBron to come here

    LeBron James has agreed to a new deal with Nike and the contract won't have bonus clauses that could trigger if he plays in a specific city, according to a report from the Plain Dealer.

    There has frequently been speculation about LeBron's contract, as well as others, that there could be added money from Nike if a player is in a big market such as New York or Los Angeles.

    Bull-sh!t.

    Why the hell would LeBron James agree to a new Nike contract, right now, that was not in some way tied to his upcoming free agency, in which his salary is restricted to $16.5 per year.

    Wouldn't happen, which is why this is BS.

    As reported by the Cleveland Plain Dealer...

    I don't know how true this is. But even if it is, I really don't think that it's a huge factor in LeBron James' decision...a billboard right outside MSG or right in Times Square in a Knicks uniform makes him basically the King of this city...If that doesn't bring him here, I really don't know that anything will.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure a billboard in Times Square generates more revenue than all advertising in the entire city of Cleveland combined
