<You need to read the post OK Fess Up Calvin before reading this post. >
IF the Affair of Lebron Jame’s Mom with Delonte West is untrue and just big business trying to manipulate where Lebron James ends up (see post) – this is the news – that team should have released. (For this fairytale, let’s assume Calvin Murphy was paid-off and use the New York Knicks as the culprits.)
The Headline on The Huffington Post would have read:
Lebron can’t play with anyone who is messing with his mom. Any team that had someone who was with his mom would be immediately eliminated from the Lebron James Sweepstakes.
- Delonte West gets him to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers.
- Devin Harris would eliminate the NJ Nets.
- Blake Griffin would eliminate the LA Clippers.
- Derrick Rose would eliminate the Chicago Bulls.
- Michael Beasley would eliminate the Miami Heat.
- Dirk Nowitzki would eliminate the Dallas Mavericks.
And that leaves the NY Knicks.
Guys – If you are going to do it, do it right!

Let’s face it. The NY Knicks are a horrible sports product. Bad team. Bad management (that is hopefully getting better now that Isiah Thomas is gone). The only reason they have any revenue is because of (1) corporate sales, and (2) convenience of the location of Madison Square Garden and Penn Station.
In recent years the team has not improved. There is no indication this coming year will be any better.
The Knick goal for the next few seasons should be the following:
- Clear Salary Cap Room.
- Clear More Salary Cap Room.
- Get a few solid young players.
- SIGN LEBRON JAMES!
When Lebron James becomes a free agent after the 2010 season, the Knicks must sign him. Hopefully, they will have collected a solid group of role players to support him. This will make the Knicks franchise on the rise. Lebron will give us a winning team and he will be largest star in NY. NY should be his the top choice on his list of franchises. Imagine all the opportunities he would have!
But… the rumors are that the NJ Nets (Brooklyn Nets?) may get Lebron James when he becomes a free agent.
If the Nets get Lebron James and have decent mass transit to their new Brooklyn arena, say good-bye to the Knicks. The Nets will become New York’s team. And Lebron will still have many of the same opportunities he would have playing for the Knicks.
So… Hopefully, the Knicks are already working on the strategy on how to sign King Lebron James! They need to do whatever it takes!

Re: Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic of ESPNradio. Show MikeAndMike.
First it’s Pete Rose. Now it’s Mike “Greeny” Greenberg!
Mike Greenberg announced today that he bet $1500 on Mike Golic to win the HORSE basketball contest of the Mike and Mike Pentathlon.
We believe gambling on sports, especially a contest in which you are participating is deplorable and unnaceptable. What makes it even worse is he bet on his opponent, Mike Golic.
This act will come before the board of the Broadcaster’s Hall Of Fame and will surely prevent a first ballot entry for Mike Greenberg. 😉

Now Kevin Love of UCLA will be entering the NBA draft. He is ready. Big body at 6-10″ and 270 lbs. He can step right in to the NBA and be a 12 pt 8 reb guy on day #1. He will fit into most teams as a signifcant contributor.
Michael Beasley of Kansas State will be a better pro than Love.
… And Both Love and Beasley will be better than Tyler Hansbrough….
It’s hard to argue otherwise.

Michael Beasley of Kansas State is headed to the NBA. He declared his intentions today. He will be a great professional player. Athletic. Talented. No doubt about it….
Let’s face it. Tyler Hansbrough of North Carolina “was” a great college player. The problem is a part of his college game was, often, he pushed and forced his way around. He won’t be able to do that when he plays with “adults” in the NBA.
