LeBron to Chicago? Get Serious? Wait, You ARE Serious?
With LeBron bombing a second straight game and his Cavs being bounced from the playoffs, the speculation about the future of his career is now reaching a fevered pitch. As July 1 approaches, it will only get crazier. Fans from Cleveland could not imagine that he would leave, fans from New York could not imagine that he would go anywhere else but the Big Apple, and fans from Chicago seem to be on a hope and a prayer. Until the last few days that is. ESPN’s Chris Broussard has shaken up the equation and Chicago fans can only sit back and smile. Sure we thought getting Wade or Bosh would be great, but LeBron? It’s almost unbelievable.
Watch this clip and let yourself believe with Mr. Broussard for just a moment. It’ll make you feel good, I promise:
Sonny Vaccaro, the godfather of shoe deals and amateur basketball, seems to think it could happen too. And of course, some league GMs are buzzing about it as well. But back to reality for one moment. What Broussard doesn’t seem to be taking into account is the turmoil in Chicago’s front office. Sure Jerry Krause is gone, but Reinsdorf is still there and the Pax-Gar management group is flawed at best and incompetent at worst. Also, no coach? The Bulls will need to get that situation resolved quickly and properly if they even hope to lure any free agent, let alone the biggest free agent in the last 10 years.
God I hope it happens.
