According to "Newsday," multiple sources confirmed that LeBron James decided not to resign with the Cleveland Cavaliers and will instead sign with the Miami Heat.

Pat Riley and Dwyane Wade have pulled it off. From a LeBron's perspective, this is a great move. Pat Riley has proved that he knows how to win championships. Wade himself has won one under the legendary NBA coach in Pat Riley. However, as far as the Knicks are concerned, this is bad news!

The Knicks cleared salary cap room for two maximum free agency signings hoping that LeBron James would have been one of these signings. Nevertheless, it was not meant to be. As disappointing as it may seem, the Knicks still has other options other than LeBron.

Disappointed Knicks fans prepares for a run at Carmelo Anthony. Now that LeBron is off the free agency radar. The New York Knicks' only hope now is to land Carmelo. In fact, even this is no guarantee. Many sources have said Carmelo will probably resign with the Denver Nuggets.

Therefore, the only time Carmelo will set foot in the Big Apple in his million-dollar suit is when he says "I Do" to his long-time girl friend Lala Vasquez, former MTV host. The two will be getting married in the Big Apple in a few days according to sources. The two are both New Yorkers by birth.

The Knicks signing of Amare Stoudemire is a step in the right direction. However, the team will need more help.

Talk of Tony Parker, from the San Antonio spurs, joining the New York Knicks, has been swirling around the free agency sweepstakes for quite some time. A player of the caliber of Tony Parker will definitely help the Knicks, but for how long? He is not a young man anymore. His quickness is not the same as it was in years past.

Other than Tony Parker, there are still very good options out there that will be available in one or two years; Chris Paul is one such name that comes to mind. The 25 year old point guard is a power to recon with and whichever team signs him will be vastly improved. Knicks fans hope that their team will be the lucky team.

More players will be available for the Knicks to sign in the near future if not this year but next year. So, Knicks fans, there maybe no LeBron James, but that is not the end of the world; great options are still out there.
