Lebron wants to play with Kobe in LA?

Quote:
The greatest NBA free agent of all time, LeBron James, is quietly making overtures to the Los Angeles Lakers.

He wants to play for them. And James is not all that concerned whether Kobe Bryant is part of the equation. Bryant, of course, has yet to sign a contract extension with L.A. and could wind up a free-agent himself, albeit one with high mileage.

But the overtures have been made. LeBron wants to wear the purple and gold. Mainly, he wants to wear a championship ring, which means he wants to play for Lakers coach Phil Jackson.

“LeBron wants to win. He’s a smart guy,” explainsone of my best inside sources, a close Jackson associate. “And Phil loves LeBron, absolutely LOVES him.”

There are many, many complicating factors to such a scenario, not the least of which is the fact that it’s way far from certain that Jackson will even be the coach of the Lakers next year.

“The Lakers have not made Phil an offer,” the Jackson source points out. However, rest assured of this, Jackson’s close associate maintained. “Phil will coach somewhere next year.”

Jackson wouldn’t dare take off next year if he’s not coaching the Lakers because he believes the following year will bring a lock-out, the source says. Jackson craves the chance to win another title before the NBA owners lock out the players in 2011-2012 to force a new contract.

“The whole league is under review,” the source points out. “Franchise values are falling, so the owners feel they must force a new labor agreement.”

The lock-out will bring a lost season, and the 64-year-old Jackson doesn’t want to miss two campaigns. So Jackson could wind up coaching Bron with another team next year, such as the New York Knickerbockers.

If all of this sounds fabulous, that’s because it is. These are strange days indeed for the NBA, and for the Lakers, with the planets aligning or converging or whatever with the upcoming off-season. “It feels like there’s a reckoning coming,” the Jackson source said.

Do you know how much over the cap the Lakers would be??? If this happens, the Lakers are the new Yankees, and they would win 10 straight titles.

i don't know... i dont think this is valid. i mean like Lebron and his team has the best record in the league, why would he want to go somewhere else when chances are his team is going to win it all. But i mean its not definite they're goin to win, but still....i dont see this happening. Plus Lebron wants the spotlight, i dont think he would share it with his rival kobe.

All these mid season stories are pissing me off. Theyre all a bunch of crap and they keep getting press like it has any sense of truth.

Next we'll learn Lebron likes Toronto and Raptorsnation will explode. BC is secretly looking ot unload his entire team to get Lebron guys!!!!

what people dont understand is that Cleveland is actually shit without Lebron. I guess that LeBron is thinking "dynasty" and LA would be the best place to go.

However, i agree that this article is probably steaming bullshit.

Well as farfetched as it seems it could be done easily.
LBJ could simple tell Cleveland he was leaving but he wanted to go to the Lakers.
Sign and trade LBJ for Kobe deal done.
The Lakers would be at the same salary level and Cleveland would get a player at basically the same talent level.
Do I think it would happen "NO" but for Cleveland if LBJ wants to leave would be a equitable deal.

Ever since Canada won 14 gold medals in the 2010 olympics, Wade wants to be in a country of winners and thinking of buying a house in Toronto sharing it with his buddy Lebron.

And they might think of joining the local team north of the border there too
See I made one up, this shit is easy.
