Sources: LeBron James to meet with Nets first


In another blow to NYK's chances to land LeBron, ESPN.com is reporting that the New Jersey Nets will have the first opportunity to meet with the most coveted free agent of this year's class.

LeBron to meet teams in Cleveland

Although the single threat of New Jersey getting the first crack at LeBron may not seem too severe, there was another tidbit in the article that potentially could be the Vulcan Death Grip on the Knicks recruiting plans.  According to the article, there will be NO recruiting tour by LeBron - a once thought certainty from the Knick camp.  As a matter of fact, we have all read that Donnie and Co.  were planning on a Wine-Em, Dine-Em Extravaganza with the hopes of knocking LeBron's socks off with the allure and prestige of NYC.  This news, if true, could strike the achilles heel of the Knicks "Plan A". 


Questions to consider:

Does this news trouble you? 

Does this mean that the big star studded recruiting plan is saved for Kyle Korver

Do you think that this news, coupled with what happened during the draft (ie Bulls/Heat clearing cap space) all but ends NYKs chances to get LeBron?


What do you feel are the Knicks' chances of being 'shut out' in free agency?

 

Personally, I consider this to be very crippling news in the pursuit of LeBron.  I find it troubling that LBJ, while approaching the free agency period, was quoted as saying he was looking forward to these recruiting tours and now suddenly he wants to meet these teams in Cleveland.  Obviously, the main thing we had going for us at this point in time, was the allure of NYC, selling MSG's renovations, a possible LeBron channel, NY stars and personalities....Now....all for naught.  The advantage we had over some of the other suitors was the name on our shirt but it's a much tougher sell with postcards and DVDs
