The NBA Free Agency of Summer 2010 will shape the landscape of the NBA for the next decade.
There has never been a time in NBA history when this many elite players have been free agents.
Teams are using any means necessary to get these superstars to join their organization. Movie stars, music artists, and politicians are all being recruited by cities to help convince these all-stars to suit up for their home team.
There are a handful of free agents that could make a team an instant competitor for the NBA title. But there is one free agent who is the most coveted of them all.
Whichever team lands this superstar will be considered the grand prize winner of free agency summer 2010. They will immediately become favorites to win it all in 2011 and for the next several seasons.
Who is this player that can walk on water, make the blind see, and turn water into wine?
The two-time defending NBA Most Valuable Player is at the top of every team’s wish list. And why not?
The No. 1 overall pick in 2003 has averaged 27.8 PPG, 7 RPG, and 7APG in his first seven seasons in the league. This 6’8” 260lb small forward is a six-time NBA All-Star and is a complete mismatch on the court.
However, despite all of LeBron’s awards and accolades, NBA teams should stay away from him like the plague.
The BleacherReport staff could go on for days with reasons why NBA teams should not sign LeBron James, but we boiled it down to five.
