I just don't get it.
First of all, who are their "sources?" I mean, seriously, who could they be? Is it Maverick Carter or Gloria James or Worldwide Wes? Or is it a GM assistant or a ballboy who knows someone?
Again I hear from Mark Stein today that all indications point to the Bulls. He also says that because of the CBA situation, that he will almost definitely sign a 5-6 year deal.
Do you really think LeBron is that dumb to sign a 6 year contract to play in Chicago just because of Derrick Rose and Joakim F'ing Noah? I mean, seriously? It doesn't make any sense. They are both good young players but neither is a John Wall game changer type. The LeBron-Bosh-Gallinari "Big 3" looks every bit as good, if not better than that. Why would someone nicknamed the King, with a chosen one tattoo on his back, who wants to be the biggest athlete of all time choose the SECOND CITY over what would undoubtebly be the biggest sports story of the past 25 years - leading the New York freaking Knicks to the NBA championship. Bringing the Bulls back to their former glory wouldn't be nearly the same. The countdown would begin for "5 More!" In New York, he would be the King of the World after title # 1.
I mean, I don't write for ESPN, but I would say that anyone examining the overwhelming evidence before them would conclude that LeBron James and Chris Bosh are heading to the Knicks. It is the ultimate no brainer for all parties involved. NY and the Knicks get their guy, the King gets the #1 market (the only one fit for a king) and a 2nd star plus a 3rd star in Gallinari plus the bright lights people like Buzz Bissinger- and pretty much anybody else who has been paying attention - know that he craves.
Oh, but my question - who do you think these sources could be? Friends? GMs? Brother's ex girlfriend sister types? Imaginary friends?
