    Smile new york knicks have a second surprise meeting with lebron!

    The Knicks, who haven't given up on the dream of signing LeBron James, were granted a second meeting with the free agent superstar's representatives late Saturday in Cleveland, The Daily News has learned.
    According to a Knicks official, Garden president Scott O'Neil and senior VP of Basketball Operations Glen Grunwald were dispatched to James' hometown and held a brief clandestine meeting with James' reps to make a second pitch to the two-time MVP.
    It is unclear if James was in the meeting but it is believed that his business manager, Maverick Carter, and agent, Leon Rose, met with the two Knicks executives on the same day that James spoke to both the Cavs and Bulls.
    The timing of the meeting is interesting since it came one day after the Knicks received a verbal commitment from All Star power forward Amar'e Stoudemire. The Knicks wanted to relay to James that the organization is committed to doing everything in its power to surround him with talent.
    The sense the Knicks get is that James will likely re-sign with the Cavs. In fact, as recently as Thursday, one Knicks source said it was "very doubtful" that James would sign with New York.
    Also yesterday, Joe Johnson announced that he would re-sign with Atlanta. Johnson was considering both the Knicks and Hawks but without a sign-and-trade deal, those teams could only offer $30 million less than Atlanta could.

    I seriously doubt it. Maverick Carter will make sure of it.

    Apparently there were talks yesterday:

    The Knicks met with Leon Rose, agent for LeBron James, on Saturday, multiple news outlets have confirmed.

    The meeting was to discuss Amar'e Stoudemire's commitment to New York, as well as a detailed contract explanation.

    James was not in attendance at the second meeting.

    Maverick Carter, LeBron James' business partner, will be flying to New York on Wednesday to meet with the Knicks, according to sources that spoke with Tommy Dee of The Knicks Blog.


    Dee also reports that MSG president Scott O'Neil flew to Ohio on Sunday.

    So Maverick Carter is coming to meet the Knicks? Idk but maybe hearing about Stoudemire coming here changed his opinion about the Knicks. This is good because we all know how close Carter and James are.

    Guys...get the booze ready for Wednesday-Thursday, something seems fishy here considering Monday was SUPPOSED to be the day he made his choice but now he's saying Wednesday and ironically Wednesday we get this meeting.

    On thursday Free Agents can officialy sign. Keep your fingers crossed my friends.
