The day has finally arrived. Where is Lebron going?
The experts on ESPN don't even know. Chris Broussard says sources close to him are telling him that Lebron is going to the Heat. Dan Lebatard claims the decision was made back in 2008 that all three would play together. Tim Legler of ESPN claims it has to be the Knicks given all the money he could make in New York. He is also holding his press conference 15 minutes from the Knicks practice facility. Lebron's friends keep pulling at him to stay home in Cleveland and the Bulls are probably the best roster for him.
Ultimately who really knows where Lebron is going. Never in my life has there been this much anticipation about an offseason and today is the Superbowl of this offseason. After today and tomorrow you won't be reading much NBA posts on this blog. The NBA can feel good about itself now but this time next year they'll be having a lockout that could potentionally kill the sport.
Lebron going to the Heat could save the NBA. The NBA needs dynasties and great teams. Leagues thrive on greatness(expect for the NFL who went the exact opposite). The NBA is about great teams winning titles. Only 8 franchises(Lakers 10, Bulls 6, Celtics 4, Spurs 4, Pistons 3, Rockets 2, 76ers 1, Heat 1) have won an NBA title in the last 30 years and thats counting Miami who has to this date just 1 title. The Heat-Lakers rivalry will be pretty fun to watch. Look how great Lebron and Dwyane Wade played together in the Olympics and All-star games. This could be really fun to watch.
We'll keep you updated on everything we hear about Lebron and give you reaction after he has made his decision. I think he is choosing the Heat and by choosing the Heat he is saying to David Stern yes I'm bigger than you!
So where is Lebron going?
