NBA Free Agency: We Will All Be Witnesses To the First NBA Signing Day

Kendrick MarshallCorrespondent IJuly 7, 2010

I can see it now.

LeBron will be on ESPN with a Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks, Miami Heat, New Jersey Nets, Los Angeles Clippers, New Jersey Nets and Cleveland Cavaliers hat in front of him.

At 8:01 p.m. he grabs the Clippers hat, holds it up to the camera, does a Dikembe Mutombo finger wave and throw it to the side. He then glances over the remaining caps and picks up the Heat fitted cap.

LeBron bends the bill a little in an attempt to break it in. He then points at it before launching it David Letterman style just shy of the camera lens.

Pat Riley then orders Miami management to place him back in his custom cryogenic suit until Kevin Durant is a free agent.

Alright, down to the Bulls, Knicks, Nets and Cavs.

New York is next.

Everyone is like "I knew he was going to the Knicks the whole time."

Wait... LeBron ponders and takes off the Knicks hat and dons the Nets garb. (Oh, of course. Jay-Z is his boy and the Russian billionaire owner promised him the world. How could he turn that down? Having Beyonce sing the national anthem before every game would be nice)

In a mildly shocking turn of events, LeBron turns the hat backward, Ken Griffey Jr. style, and slowly lets it fall off his head and onto the floor.

Knicks fans in scream in anger. Some curse owner James Dolan. Others challenge Spike Lee to a fight outside of Sal's Pizza.

The remaining fans blame President Obama. "We tanked for two years to overpay for Amar'e? I'm voting this administration out in 2012, " a man yells.

Nets fans accustomed to the disappointment shrug and go back to... well... being irrelevant.

After a brief TV timeout, LeBron takes a quick sip of Vitamin Water and stares at the Bulls cap.

The red and black color scheme with the bull logo glaring at James seems to mesmerize him. Chicago sports fans from the South Side to the West Side lean a closer to the screen hoping King James selects the Windy City. Nothing would be sweeter for LeBron, Rose and Noah to embark on a six-championship run part two.

My cousin already can see a LeBron statue outside the United Center. Right next to the Michael Jordan statue erected shortly after the greatest player in the game retired following the 1998 season.

LeBron picks up the cap and smashes it all the way down on his head almost covering his eyes. He has a big smile on his face.

This is it. This is it. LBJ is in Chicago. Get the Grant Park rally ready for June 2011.

LeBron all of a sudden takes off the hat holds it up about his head and shoots it in a nearby wastebasket, mimicking Jordan's patented fade away jumper in the process.

"Pay back for Craig Ehlo baaaaaaaaabbbbbbyyyyyy!"
LeBron shouts. "Born here. Bred here. Stays here," the two-time NBA MVP says while placing the Cavs hat on his head.

And there you go. The first ever NBA Signing Day.
