Most of the discussion regarding LeBron James’ potential 2018 free agency destination has focused on heading to L.A. or staying in Cleveland, but today in The Herd, Colin turned the conversation away from LeBronzo, and examined the possibility of James staying in the Eastern Conference to team up with emerging superstar Kristaps Porzingis for the Knicks.
The move would allow LeBron to move to join a legit #2 in a massive market, but also remain in the very winnable Eastern Conference, instead of getting pounded into submission with the Lakers in the West. Surely James could coax Paul George or another top free agent to play with him at the Garden.
Chris Broussard told Colin that when comparing the Knicks to the Lakers as landing spots, the Knicks are far superior, largely because Porzingis is already in place. Broussard said if LeBron was on the Knicks next year, they would make the Finals out of the East.
James would have to stomach playing for James Dolan, but it’s not like he hasn’t played for owners he doesn’t like before.
Watch Colin and Broussard break down Bronzingis, and why it makes sense.
