Is Lebron Considering A Move To Brooklyn And The New Jersey Nets?

LeBron James is a wanted man.

The NBA’s most prestigious free agent will be the subject of newspaper columns, sports magazines, and online blogs until his decision is made.

James will go wherever he wants.  He does what he wants, and centers his life around himself. That’s not a bad thing considering the superstar status he’s come to live with, but it suggests that LeBron re-signing with Cleveland is probably not going to happen.

James’ signing will bring one city to its feet, while dropping many others to their knees in disgust.

lebron-james-cavsLike it or not, James is the media’s first love in the NBA and the biased coverage they give him is reaching Michael Jordan territory, if not already surpassing MJ.

The suitor list for LeBron will include every team in the NBA, but New Jersey and Cleveland seem to be the front-runners for LeBron.

The Nets and Mikhail Prokhorov were thought to have suffered a damaging blow during the NBA lottery. Going into the lottery drawings, New Jersey owned better than a 25 percent chance to draw the first pick in the draft. They would then get their shot at Evan Turner or John Wall, but, instead, they drew the third pick.

Losing out on the top two prospects in the 2010 NBA draft could hurt, but it’s unlikely that that will keep them from winning LeBron over. It’s definitely a loss, because they would have added another piece to package in a trade for a better, complementary player to play alongside Lebron.

But the Nets should not be so insecure. Devin Harris was thought to be a possible star when he was playing in Dallas, and Brook Lopez is a rising, young star. Those two could provide LeBron with the sidekick star-power he needs.

If that is not enough to convince him, Derrick Favors or Demarcus Cousins could easily become solid pieces. Favors and Cousins both departed for the NBA after one year in college.

Cleveland will be able to sign LeBron for the most money, but with all the money he already owns, the difference between the two teams max offers would probably not sway his decision in either direction. The Cavs are a solid team, but they’ve already been blessed with seven years of LeBron, and didn’t make enough of a concerted effort to place LeBron with the right teammates to elevate Cleveland to a championship level.

New Jersey’s new stadium in Brooklyn and its young roster, will present LeBron with an offer that will be hard to refuse.

The Nets’ roster expands beyond Harris and Lopez.  The seldom talked about young players , Courtney Lee and Terrence Williams, could grow into solid role players on a winning team and quickly. Yi Jianlian is another developing, young player.

If New Jersey does draft either Favors or Cousins and adds LeBron, the starting five could easily be Devin Harris, Courtney Lee/Terrence Williams, LeBron James, Derrick Favors/Demarcus Cousins, and Brook Lopez.

That line-up might not be ready for a championship run, but with LeBron on board, New Jersey would be an upgraded squad.

The Nets would instantly become a contender in the Eastern Conference, and expectations would soar.

Get on your knees and pray, New Jersey. The King could be poised to take the Nets throne.

  1. Is Harris better than Williams? Lee/Williams better than Moon/Parker? A rookie better than Jamison? The only improvement from Cleveland's current roster is Lopez. This is not a team that is a contender with James. Not yet.

  2. Brooklyn movement! says:

    Sorry to say it, but Harris is a lot better than Williams because he penetrates which is very instrumental when your jump shot isn't falling and he's bigger and more athletic. Courtney Lee is a good defender and great free throw shooter, things Cleveland lacked from their 2-spot. I think Lee would have done a better job on Ray Allen and Harris could have played his own position unlike Williams. A rookie in the playoffs like Cousins, I don't think he would do much worse than Jamison did and with size and length of Cousins and Yi 6'11 and 7'0 respectfully Garnett wouldn't have been able to dominate them like he did Jamison and Hickson 6'9 and 6'8. The playoffs is about match ups and Lopez at center with a real good jump shot and back to the basket game would have been better than any Cleveland post player at this point. And Lopez is a great free-throw shooter at over 80%. Also if Lebron take around 15 million they would still have enough money to sign quality back ups to sure up the back court and front line think Eddie House, Steve Blake, Jason Williams, Flip Murray for guards and Tyson Chandler, Brendan Haywood, and at this point Jermaine Oneal and Shaq should face reality and be willing to sure up somebody's bench.
