A SIGN OF THINGS TO COME? LEBRON JAMES FLANKED BY POTENTIAL FUTURE TEAMMATES CHRIS BOSH AND DWYANE WADE WHEN THEY ALL PLAYED FOR TEAM USA IN AN EXHIBITION GAME IN VEGAS
It’s being called the first ever “Free-Agent Summit.” Basketball stars LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh reportedly met over the weekend in South Beach to lay out the possibility of their all three joining forces and signing with the same team in a quest for an NBA Championship. James, Bosh and Wade are all currently free agents and after July 8th can sign with any team they want (salary cap restrictions not withstanding.)
Even NBA commissioner David Stern admitted there was nothing he could do about Wade, Bosh and LeBron getting together. Meanwhile, current Fox Sports radio host and former ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith Tweeted today that it’s a done deal. James, Wade and Bosh are all signing with the Miami Heat. Depending on who you want to believe, LeBron James has either 1.) Already decided to bolt for the Miami Heat, 2.) prefers the city of Chicago and will sign with the Bulls, 3.) is just going to end up staying with the Cleveland Cavaliers, 4.) will get the full treatment from his celebrity buddyJay-Z to sign with his New Jersey Nets and their super-rich billionaire owner or 5.) is about to be wooed big-time by eccentric billionaire Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban. Multiple teams have the cap room to sign James AND another NBA superstar. With a little effort, the Heat could sign three. In any scenerario, the New York Knicks are screwed and Bloomberg.com says if James leaves the Cavaliers the value of the franchise will drop by $250 million.
