Lets face it. There's not that big a chance that LeBron will leave Cleveland for the Big Apple. There may be a bigger market in New York, but is that enough of a draw for him to leave a perfectly good situation with the Cavs.
James has been on a championship contending team for the past three years, including an NBA Finals appearance in 2007, and his chances are only getting better with the addition of Shaq.
The Knicks are far from being that. They may be able to sign one or two other superstars along with James, but will they have a team around him that can perform?
The Knicks were only able to afford Nate Robinson and David Lee for one year contracts and they lose their first round draft pick next year to the Utah Jazz.
So, with all of these obstacles in their way, it might be a good idea for Knicks fans to stop getting their hopes up and start thinking about other available free agents. Here are some of the possibilities (aside from the obvious; Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh).
