Dear LeBron: The Knicks, Heat, or Cavs? Bad Idea. Bulls? Good

Dear LeBron,

You must not sign with the New York Knickerbockers. That would be a mistake. Let's take a look. The Knicks have no point guard, a washed up T-Mac, and no center. They also are about to trade David Lee. They just signed Amar'e, but his style of play, no defense or rebounding, usually doesn't translate success in the playoffs.

If you're in it just for the money, I guess New York is your place and I won't stop you. You might be able to win there eventually, but not right away.

Ah then there's the Heat.

As we all know, Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade are both ready to sign there. The heat will find a way to get them all max contracts. That's not the problem. The problem is that there is no money left after signing them.

As we all know, you can sign as many minimum salary free agents as you possibly need. However, we all also know that you need depth to win championships, not sheer star power.

While the Heat look like a sexy option, it's not the option that has the best chance of working out.

I don't think I even need to explain the Cavs. They have no help for him there and I'm afraid they never will. LeBron said earlier, "I don't want to end up being 31 with bad knees and no title."

I don't think Bulls, Knicks, and Heat fans have to worry about him going back there.

But wait, there's one more team! The Chicago Bulls.

The Bulls already have a starting line up comprised of Noah, Boozer, Deng, and Rose. Then if they can land LeBron, the starting lineup is pretty much there.

The only question marks they might have is at shooting guard, but they will have enough money to go after someone like Quentin Richardson, Anthony Morrow, Ronnie Brewer or even Mike Miller.

The thing is, LeBron will get his cash, get to play in Micheal Jordan's house, and have a great chance of winning a title right away.

So LeBron, I know you're leaning towards the Heat and I know you won't read this, but I'm praying that you have an epiphany and realize the Bulls are the right place.

 

Sincerely,

Your Guardian Angel
