The Knicks are in a similar situation with most other teams. A free agent exits their meeting and then they tell the media how persuaded they are. Deep inside, the free agents may not be that exited about a team.
That is why the Knicks have unraveled their No. 2 plan to make hit big in the NBA Free-Agent market. This is all on LeBron James. If he signs, the Knicks may not need to got to this plan.
The way I see it, many people believe that their Plan B is stronger than their Plan A with LeBron.
