Oh where, oh where will LeBron James go?Published 12:00am Thursday, July 8, 2010
For the past two weeks, I’ve heard everything about where NBA super star LeBron James might end up playing next season, and I’m tired of it.
When I heard the news that he is expected to hold a news conference tonight telling the world where he’s decided to play, I felt loads better.
James is expected to make the announcement at 8 p.m. CST on ESPN, during the special.
Finally, we’ll get an answer to that question that a lot of people have been wandering about.
For me, I think he will play for either the Chicago Bulls or for Cleveland.
Chicago has such a high-caliber type program,with the personnel to win a championship — which James wants so desperately.
Or, he can stay in Cleveland and hope that he’ll win a championship upon entering his eighth season in the NBA.
Last week, I read up on the latest on what James is going through, and I must say it is maddening to think about.
James visited with the following teams last week: New Jersey Nets, New York Knicks, Miami Heat, Los Angeles Clippers, Cleveland Cavaliers and the Chicago Bulls.
Representatives from each pitched, or tried to sell their teams to one of the greatest players of all time.
On Tuesday at lunch watching my daily dose of SportsCenter, a broadcaster made a good point talking about the latest in where James might play.
This came after Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh both decided to team up together to play in Miami.
He said that all of the hype has been on James so much so that people can end up forgetting who else was in the free agency market.
I sure did forget.
I think Amare Stoudemire was another free agent, too. Is that right?
On James’ decision tonight, I will be watching and sitting at the edge of my seat in anticipation of what he could say.
Will he stay with Cleveland, and try again for another good appearance in the NBA playoffs next year? Or will he move on to another team in the hopes of getting that ring he desperately wants?
The world will find out tonight.
