The meetings are done. In what was surely three days of the strangest free agency wooing, perhaps in the history of sports, LeBron James can now sit back, relax, and decide where he will spend the next 3-6 years.
In presentations that included a mock-Sopranos episode as well as a ‘Family Guy’-themed cartoon that included LeBron and his friends as characters, six teams let it be known – or tried at least – that LeBron would be best suited to play in a uniform colored other than Wine and Gold.
After seven years, it has almost been anti-climatic. Maybe I was preparing myself for the worst, but now that all the meetings are seemingly done, I feel great about Cleveland’s chances to retain LeBron. Of course, that feeling could change in an instant.
I have signed up for the new LeBronJames.com, however, where the promise is made the “You’ll be the first to know”. What he means by that, who knows, but the next 48 hours or so could tell the tale.
