Poor LeBron. All eyes are on him now. Not the Celtics, the team his Cavs’ just lost to. Not Kobe and the Lakers. Not the Magic. Not  the other A-list superstars that will be free agents come July. Right now, LeBron’s got a hell of a lot of attention on him.

Not that we should feel all that bad for LeBron. He only has to pick a team where he will make millions of dollars, probably enough to feed Africa.

But in all reality, LeBron mania is somewhat of a big deal. This is LeBron. So well-known that I haven’t even mentioned his last name this whole post. Wherever he lands, all hell will break loose. Wherever he doesn’t land, all hell will break loose. Such a win-win situation.

Do I know where he will land? Of course not. Do I hope he goes to the Nets? I guess. If I’m him, I have a lot of options to weigh. He could stay in Cleveland with the hope of winning one for those fans that love him. He could bring a title home. Or he could bolt for the bright lights and attention of New York in hopes of winning a title there.

Yes, money is important, but I doubt it will be a deciding factor in where LeBron chooses to go. I do know one thing, however. Mr. James is currently a mythical-like creature in which we all gather around him and analyze his every move. And it won’t stop until he stops. In Cleveland, New York, or wherever he lands.

This could take a while.
