The past week's Lebron-a-thon comes to an end at nine o’clock tonight. King James will announce his decision at a press conference to be aired by ESPN (followed by an hour long special entitled “The Decision”).
The rest of this year’s highly impressive crop of young free agents have already aligned themselves with a team, leaving James alone in the already Lebron-tinted lime-light.
By and large, nobody has been able to agree on where Lebron will end up.
Knicks fans claim he’d be stupid not to go to New York and renew the glory of a freshly renovated Madison Square Garden. And, any fans who happened to be watching SNY after the Mets game last night undoubtedly took note of the footage of Lebron in a Yankees cap.
Nets fans lean on the influence of Lebron’s friend Sean Carter (better known as Jay-Z), who owns a mere one-and-a-half percent of the Nets.
LA residents hope to replace their less-than-savory Kobe as the face of their city while folk in Miami lay on the tempting beaches and fantasize about the possibility of the perfect threesome (not that kind) running up and down the floor boards of American Airlines Arena.
Cleveland desperately hopes that their close vicinity to Akron will save the one sports team they have to be proud of.
Only Chicago has any real reason(s) to rest easy. Here are just five.
