He’s Not Looking to “Flip That House!”
We’re not trying to turn this site into “Lebron TMZ” but he is certainly making news with his actions early in his off-season. From reports of his entourage/team/brain trust showing up at a Troy Smith charity event sporting Bulls gear, to reported brokering by World Wide Wes to package Lebron and John Calipari, the internet has been abuzz with rumors of backroom conversations in every city with cap space.
The latest rumor that sprouted up last night and continued to gain steam this morning was that Lebron was spotted in Highland Park getting out of an SUV at a mansion on Sheridan Road with a For Sale sign. A friend of the blog who teaches in the northern suburbs was told by one of her students that they saw James getting out of his vehicle at the estate yesterday. It should be noted that Highland Park sits right next to Deerfield, the home of the Berto Center, the Bulls’ practice facility.
Kudos to King James for factoring in the commute to his future place of employment. Maybe we should be calling him “Green James” instead.
Stay tuned tonight for the Draft Lottery folks! If the Nets secure the #1 pick then they will be offering a slightly lesser platter of talent to James in the form of John Wall, Brooke Lopez, and if they can trade Devin Harris, enough room to sign another max free agent.
