Where will he land?

    That was the headline on what was ESPN.com's lede story late Tuesday/early Wednesday.

    The story in question was a Chris Sheridan column about whether or not LeBron James might go to the Knicks when he's a free agent in July of 2010. For those of you scoring at home, that's a mere 18 months and 1.75 seasons from now.


    And this is newsworthy now ... why?

    I hate how they made a big deal about it on SportsCenter today.

    And the scroll at the bottom read: LeBron plays first game at MSG today. Which made it sound like he was playing there for the first time in his career.

    I don't know why anyone would want to play for the Knicks. Unless, you know, they get some talent between now and July 2010.

    Reasons 1-100: New York > Cleveland.

    And it's a story because the Knicks have said publicly, I believe, that they're most recent trades were aimed at creating room to sign LeBron.

    Well, it would be more fun to watch him fail to win championships in New York.

    Hell, go play for the Nets. At least they're a little better and it's not that far from The City.

    The Cavs can pay LeBron significantly more money if he stays in Cleveland.

    He may be the only big name player the yanks can land.

    All the Knicks (Walsh) have done is concede that part of their motivation for moving Crawford and Randolph, their two high scorers early in the season, was to clear cap space. The media took it from there.

    Absolutely ridiculous that this is a discussion this far out, although I note that King James doesn't seem to mind the speculation.

    Aren't there anti-tampering rules to prevent this sort of thing?
