Report: Lebron James and Chris Bosh Planning to Sign With Chicago

June 28, 2010 – Dr. Anklesnap

I realize that Cavs fans are waiting with baited breath to see if Lebron James will re-sign with the hometown Cleveland Cavaliers or whether he will jump ship in favor of ‘the big city’ atmosphere. The long awaited Summer 2010 Free Agency period opens on Thursday and everyone and their mother is trying to guess where the big name players will sign. Specifically Lebron James, Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade, and Joe Johnson. AKA ‘The Future’ of the NBA.

Although I never have 100% confidence in reports or sources that are ‘unnamed’ or remain anonymous, the New York Times has run a story with an anonymous NBA Executive who has information leading him to believe that Lebron James and Chris Bosh will both be signing with the Chicago Bulls in an effort to create a ‘super team’ to dominate the NBA for years to come.

But the meetings might not be much more than a formality. The executive, who did not want to be identified discussing a player who is not yet a free agent, said he had gathered from discussions with his fellow N.B.A. executives that James was strongly leaning toward joining the Bulls in tandem with another free agent, Chris Bosh of the Toronto Raptors.

“I think it’s a done deal,” the executive said.

He said he thought James was going ahead with the meetings in Ohio “to be respectful to all these teams who jumped through these hoops,” a reference to the clubs, like the Knicks, who traded reasonably talented players like Jamal Crawford the last two seasons in an effort to open up as much salary-cap space as possible. But if James and Bosh are indeed going to Chicago, moves like the ones the Knicks made will have been done at least partly in vain. {via}

Thoughts people? Do you think Lebron and Bosh are really going to sign with the same team, and if so, will that team be the Chicago Bulls?

If so, the basketball gods are surely smiling upon the Bulls for the first time since a man named Michael Jeffrey Jordan arrived in town…
