Entries in Lebron James (6)
Three years in the making have all led to this pivotal moment for a select group of NBA franchises. Three years of trading away bad contracts and some teams fielding NBADL squads due to a decimated roster and essentially tanking their season all just to have enough room under the salary cap for the possibility of signing the best player in the game today. The greatest free agent ever to hit the open market in professional sports is now up for grabs. And it will undoubtedly change the landscape of several NBA franchises, as well as the league itself for the next decade. The SUMMER OF LEBRON is here!!!!!
I miss the NBA. It is not for me to lament wings, beer and a marathon of college basketball, but something is missing.
Getting back to my earlier statement, just because these teams share the same area code as their more successful neighbors does not mean there is a united NY whenever the other is in a championship series. Ask any Met fan who their most hated team is, you will undoubtedly get “the F’n Yankees!” as an answer. Jet fans do not have quite the hatred towards Giants fans; they more or less are indifferent towards them, much like if it was the Seattle Seahawks. Met fans are clearly second class citizens in their own city and it has given them a bit of an inferiority complex.
