It looks like LeBron James and the Cavaliers have yet another early exit from the NBA Playoffs… I feel like there is a trend here. After the “unbiased” NBA analysts have been telling us that “something in LeBron has changed this season” and that “this is LeBron’s year,” the ending is still the same. And who was the guy that said there was no chance all the way back in December? That’s right, KB Faithful, it was me.
Now that the Cavs’ season is over, there is much speculation over what jersey LeBron will be wearing next year. And since God has blessed me with my NBA intuition, I thought it would only be right to spread his word. But instead of speaking in NIV terms, I’ll let you all know what teams are most likely to be using the King James Version.
According to most sources, the Bulls are currently the front runner for LeBron. They already have a star in Derrick Rose and their GM has expressed interest in pulling a sign-and-trade with the Toronto Raptors to also acquire Chris Bosh. Almost a perfect match except for one thing… they don’t have a coach. And we all know that LeBron can’t get very far without a coach.
So the SuperSonics may not be an NBA team anymore, but LeBron has just as good of a chance of winning a championship for Seattle as he does for Cleaveland… (Zero)
Los Angeles’s Other Team
Another potential team with some great building blocks. They have a very good guard in Eric Gordon and an even better forward in Blake Griffin. Just add some Bron-Bron to the mix and the Lakers may no longer be the best team in L.A. anymore. However, everyone knows that you can’t be a successful Clipper. That’s like being a successful Cavalier… Boom Roasted! That’s two in a row!
That is the tallest and the shortest players to ever start in the NBA… Who wouldn’t want to play for this team?
New York Knickerbockers
The Knicks are easily one of the top teams on the LeBron list. They have a large amount of cap space and are located in the largest NBA market, but then you have to remember that they are the Knicks. I mean, they used to be coached by Whoopi Goldberg. They haven’t been great since Patrick Ewing, and they haven’t choked anyone since their Latrell Spreewell days. I would recommend LeBron to this team, but I can name more players on the the Timberwolves than the Knicks*, so maybe this isn’t the best choice.
*Kevin Love, Corey Brewer, and Jonny Flynn of the T-Wolves vs. David Lee of the Knicks
At this point in time, no one has any idea who King James will be playing for next season… not even LeBron. The current front runner is easily the Bulls. But if Bron-Bron really wants to win a championship, then he should probably find a coach who has won a championship (i.e. not Coach Calipari)
