Cavs vs. Knicks tonight at MSG

I've been talking about LeBron to NYC for months to friends of mine that root for the Cavs and Knicks. Last week, the probability of this actually happening increased exponentially after Knicks' Prez Donnie Walsh made two big trades clearing cap space for the Summer of (Lebron) 2010. Out were Jamal Crawford and Zach Randolph's big money (along with Mardy Collins, who hasn't brought anything to the table since fouling JR Smith...and in are Al Harrington, Cuttino Mobley and Tim Thomas. Big gamble by Donnie seeing as Crawford and Z-Bo were the team's top two scorers and flourishing in Coach Mike D'Antoni's fast-paced offense. Hopefully Walsh and the mustache man can keep the players and fans motivated for another 582 days until Bron Bron can officially become a Knick.

The best news about these trades and what will convince LBJ to wear blue and orange in two years is the fact that Walsh cleared enough money to sign not just one, but TWO players to max contracts. They can call LeBron and offer him buckets of money and ask him who else from the 2008 Olympic team he wants to play with. Wade? Bosh? Stoudemire?

It will be an antsy couple of years for Knicks and Cavs fans. I don't see him going anywhere but NY, if he leaves at all. The Nets won't be in Brooklyn by then, so he's not moving to East Rutherford, Detroit is out, not big enough of a market, and with Kobe in LA and Jordan's shadow in Chicago, I think LBJ goes to the big city or stays at home.

Here are the shoes James will be debuting tonight at the World's Most Famous Arena. Take note as these are his second NY themed kicks. He wore ones with Yankee pinstripes the last time he was at the Garden.



  1. Seriously? How does green beans make it on the survey but stuffing doesn't? It is cooked in the bird itself.

  2. Interesting to contrast this article by the Cavs' beat writer, who is excellent, with today's Sportscenter coverage of Cavs @ Knicks last night. Two very different takes on what transpired last night...
