Resorting to minor insults b/c I'm saying LeBron in NY with the Knicks makes sense.
The Nets are a no-name franchise basically. They're in the greater NYC market, making them the Brooklyn Nets will be huge for them sure, but NY will always be a Knicks town. Why would you even debate this? I don't even live in NY, and I know that. LBJ in a Knicks uniform is more valuable to the NBA as a whole than being in a Nets uniform. Endorsement deals would be more for LBJ in a Knicks uniform VS a Nets.
I guess you're just sick of hearing about all the James and Knicks hype. I can't blame you there, but to say the argument is a weak sauce jab is quite unfounded in itself. This is an open forum debate where opinions should be shared... just b/c you disagree with one doesn't mean your opinion > someone else's.
The whole James and Knicks discussions have been going on in the media for awhile, and neither side has said a definite “no” to the possibility of landing LBJ. If this was out of the question for either side, this would have already been brought to the attention of the NY media so they’d quite using it to only disappoint already anxious and disappointed fans.
