It seems like just yesterday that LeBron James spurned James Dolan and New York City. It seems like just yesterday that the Miami Heat was parading around South Beach. It seems like just yesterday that The King himself told America that they weren’t going to win just one or two titles, but they were going to win six or seven. It seems like just yesterday that LeBron James choked in the playoffs. Didn’t that just happen yesterday???

Maybe Next Year, Miami

LeBron James is the #1 public sports enemy. Period. Everyone outside of Miami hates him. Especially, New York. He spurned the Knicks last off-season, always seems to put huge games together in The Garden, and now he’s a minority owner of the Fenway Sports Group. Yesterday, LeBron James became a minority owner of the Fenway Sports Group’s, Liverpool Soccer Club. FSG is partnering with James’ sports marketing firm, LRMR Branding & Marketing to promote the Liverpool Soccer Club.

The deal marks the first time that a professional athlete at the top of his sport has taken an ownership role in a club with the size and power of Liverpool. Liverpool is regarded as one of the world’s most premiere sports teams.

Blah, blah, blah. LeBron wants to be a global icon like Michael Jordan. Blah, blah, blah. I choke in the playoffs. Blah, blah, blah. I’m a Yankee fan, but I’m partnering with the Red Sox. Blah, blah blah. Hell, the Red Sox may not even win a game this season! At least James and the Red Sox have a few things in common. Over-publicized. Over-rated.

LeBron, listen. New York hates you. I hate you and you’ll never be Kobe, let alone Michael. Good for you and your little business with your high school buddies. Once you choke again in the playoffs, maybe you can try out to be Liverpool’s goalie. Or water boy. If he chokes there too (which has about a 90% chance of happening), he can always pitch for the Red Sox. It’d look a lot better than Jon Lester right now.

It’s been roughly two weeks since LeBron James’s big ‘Decision’. When he announced he was ‘taking his talents to South Beach’, he instantly became the most hated man in sports. I mean, outside of Chris Bosh and ‘Wade Country’ in South Florida, who was happy about LeBron heading to South Beach?

I won’t bore you anymore with LeBron James talk, but I’ll leave you with this picture…take a long look at it and tell me what you see. A picture is worth a thousand words and this picture is definitely a foreshaddowing of the Miami Heat for the next six years…

On one of the most anticipated nights in recent memory, LeBron James told the world that he would join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on the Miami Heat next season. As soon as James revealed this league-altering news, this image immediately became tarnished.

I doubt this kid has ever watched basketball ^

In roughly twelve hours, we’ll know where LeBron James will be playing basketball next season. There have been endless rumors flying around about him house hunting, having lunch with other players, etc. But let’s just cut through all of the clutter and look at the facts. LeBron values only two things…

In roughly thirty-six hours, we will know where LeBron James will be playing basketball next season. Three of the kingpin free agents have already fallen, leaving James as the final of the ‘Big 4’ players still available. With Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade going to Miami, I think it’s a no-brainer that LeBron James will join Amar’e Stoudemire in the Garden next season… I’m so confident that I purchased a ton of Madison Square Garden (MSG) stock today…

The Knicks have agreed to a 5 year deal with Power Forward Amar’e Stoudemire worth near $100 million. He is the first of the big name free agents to agree to a deal. Amar’e gives the Knicks a presence in the paint that the Garden hasn’t seen since the Patrick Ewing days and one has to wonder could this lure LeBron to New York.

Both the New York Knicks and New Jersey Nets met with LeBron James on Thursday afternoon. According to various reports, both meetings went extremely well. One source even cited that the Nets might even be front-runners for James’ service.  So how does this all shake out for the two Tri-State teams?

Due to a great suggestion from one of our readers, I decided to start up a weekly NY Sports rumors article. I’ve been hearing and reading a lot of interesting stuff, so I wanted to share it with you. A lot of these rumors are in fact, rumors. By no means are they true, but they are definitely possible. Come back here each Sunday to check out the list and see what’s crackin’.
