2010 NBA Free Agency: LeBron James to Chicago?

As unlikely as it is for LeBron James to be playing anywhere other than Cleveland next season, if he did decide to play elsewhere, Chicago makes the most sense.

Back in mid-December, James talked about how much he loved Kentucky star John Wall's game.

"He's like Derrick Rose," James said to ESPN.com. "Derrick is much stronger than he is, but he has some of the same athleticism that Derrick has."

So, if James loves Wall's game, how does he feel about Rose?

Things got even more interesting on Mar. 18 when LeBron's Blackout Party was filled with superstar celebrities, including superstar Chicago athletes, and specifically Rose. People at the party said that the two seemed awfully chummy.

Since the party, Rose has jacked up more three-pointers in two weeks than he had in months—playing the very same way that LeBron likes his point guards to play...interesting.

It's doubtful that LeBron leaves Cleveland, but would James rather play with David Lee and Toney Douglas or Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah?

If New Jersey gets the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, look for New Jersey to replace Chicago as the top destination for the elite free agents, as they would then have Brook Lopez, John Wall, and great trade bait in Devin Harris.

Feel free to leave comments. I'm just fascinated by this season's free agency (and how the Knicks have now been preparing for three years for it).
