Here's what's interesting...

that you think people give a crap about New York or who their fans will be cheering for in front of their televisions.

Everyone cry for NY.

Knicks should keep David Lee. He wants to be here and will be a very good player on a championship team.

Lebron likes David Lee's game because Lee can score but he isn't concerned about scoring. He wants to get rebounds and pass and use both left and right hands to make for some amazing intangibles. This is the perfect type of player for Lebron to play with.

I think it's time to give the LeBron pipe dream up.

He is by far the biggest star in the sport and on the verge of becoming the biggest sports star on Earth, he plays for the best team in the NBA that looks like it may be able to win numerous titles during the next few years - which is what he would need to put him in Jordan or Tiger territory, and that team can pay him $35 million more than the Knicks.

So what's his incentive to play for the Knicks? Because he can't capitalize on his talent in a small market?

Think again. The NBA playoffs are enjoying the best ratings in years right now. LeBron needs to play for a winner to maximize his abilities, and he already has that going for him. Also, this notion that the Knicks are one of the league's historic franchises is also ridiculous. The NY media will have you believe that the Knicks are right there with the Celtics and Lakers in terms of historical relevance, and that it'd be a crime for LeBron not to join them.

Please. Comparing the Knicks with those teams is like comparing the Kansas City Royals with the Yankees and Red Sox.

The Knicks have some cap flexibility going forward, and some nice young players in Lee and Robinson that they should try to re-sign. That should be their focus, not some insane pipe dream of luring the best player on Earth to leave the best team in the league to rebuild a lousy Knicks team.

And spare me the talk about them being able to sign Chris Bosh to help lure him him to NY. THey aren't going to have the money to do anything like that with Curry's contract on their books, and Curry makes so much money that opting out would be unheard of.

Furthermore, LeBron has made numerous comments recently indicating that he plans to make the Cavaliers his long term home. I know the national and NY media doesn't report that because it doesn't help support this ridiculous idea, but it's true.

The fact is, playing for the Cavaliers is a far better situation for him. The team is great and will win titles with him there, which is what he needs for his legacy, and the same cannot be said for the Knicks. He's already extremely marketable, and the Cavaliers can pay him far more money that the Knicks. I know it's little old Cleveland that he's playing in, but wouldn't you pack up and move to Ohio if you recieved a job that offered you $ 35 million more than your current one.

That's what I thought.
