If you want to sleep until 2010 go ahead because it's going to be the best free agent class in NBA history.
That was the quote by LeBron James, who will be a free agent in 2010. The free agent class in 2010 will be the best ever, with players like LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, Amare Stoudemire, Paul Pierce, Dirk Nowitzki, just to name a few.
But the real prize is everybody's goal and that's to sign LeBron James. Right now the New York Knicks have the most money going into that summer, with enough money to offer two max contracts. So that means having a LeBron James with a Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, Stoudemire.
The other team is the New Jersey Nets. LeBron is very close to rapper Jay-Z and does not mind playing for the guy he grew up watching on tv.
BUT with all that said the Knicks are the team LeBron is probably attracted to because it's New York. They have history there and LeBron would love to entertain the crowd every night at Madison Square Garden.
Even though people might say 'hey, he is staying in Cleveland,' at the end of the day Danny Ferry, the Cavaliers general manager, has failed to build a championship team around him. He better do something because his time is almost running out.
It's funny because every team in the league is trying to save money and get rid of big contracts on their team—like for instance, the Knicks traded away both Jamal Crawford and Zach Randolph and both of them saved about $27 million for the franchise.
Teams are getting ready for that great summer, especially the New York Knicks.
