lebron james picks today where he will land in a narcissistic showing on espn at 9 pm est/6 pm pst. he has made this free agency into the biggest unnecessary hoopoola, and this is coming from me being a general sports/basketball fan, not a lakers fan here. he has gone from what was one of the biggest and best (one of, not the) players to someone who now can’t apparently “win” without another alpha dog (dwayne wade), and huge role-player (chris bosh; yes, to all you toronto fans, bosh was nothing but a glorified role player).
what’s going to happen if this team (the miami heat apparently) fizzles and they don’t make it past the first round due to you having three all-stars and 9-10 minimum-salary free agents? or if wade and james turn against each other?
i’m glad the lakers are all but pretty much done, with just needing to address derek fisher and raja bell. lebron needs to think this through, as this can define how he is viewed for the years to come, as to someone who cared about his roots, dynasty, championships, or as someone who had to get help from another superstar to win.
bill simmons points it out pretty well, which i grabbed a few quotes from him below.
all in all, we’ll see how lebron james sees how he views his future tonight.
