Cablevision To Offer LeBron His Own Channel?

Frank Isola has heard a rumor that Cablevision will offer LeBron James his own television channel if he lands in New York.

Cablevision is in the process of spinning off its Madison Square Garden operation, which includes the Knicks, into a separate corporate entity.

EDIT: Here is another article from the New York Daily News.

Quote:
LeBron keeps singing the same tune

LeBron James was - surprise, surprise - noncommittal regarding his future when interviewed on "Good Morning America" this morning. With co-anchor Chris Cuomo chanting "Knicks, Knicks" in the background (so much for objectivity) LeBron said he doesn't know what he'll do next season.

That raises the official tally to 5,312. That's the number of times LeBron has said he's keeping his options open for the summer of 2010.

Speaking of which, the latest LeBron to the Knicks rumor I’ve heard is that Cablevision - which owns the Knicks but not the Daily News - will circumvent the salary cap by giving LeBron his own channel. I don't know exactly how that will work but that's what I've heard.

As of today, I say there is a 90 percent chance LeBron is coming to New York ... and 100 percent chance that I won't be watching the LeBron channel.
The other big news is that Stephon Marbury has announced his retirement. Figures he would be the last to know. The rest of us thought he was retired when he watched him in the playoffs. Heck, Mike D'Antoni had him retired on opening night.

Good luck, Steph.

Marbury didn't have his own channel. He was a nut job with a web cam. Sad really.

I would think a LeBron Channel would score big ratings in New York state. Knicks fans would watch paint dry if it was team colors.

LeBron Channel with shows like King's Corner

why don't they give him a show just like the Yanks do with their manager

LeBron has to play ball, how much time will he be on camera? or will they follow him around in practice, etc...

I mean, I'm okay with his own show, but his own channel? Isn't there something in the rules against this?

I hope every major FA stays with their teams, and other teams such as NY are left with their dicks in their hand with no satisfaction in sight.
