LeBron James will be a Chicago Bull next year.
There’s been lots of speculation, of course. Will LeBron go to the Knicks to revive the New York franchise? Will he stay in his home state and seek a repeat? Will he give up basketball for a Broadway dancing career?
Well, forget all that. LeBron’s going to the Windy City. Why? Because he loves it. When asked about the city of Chicago, LeBron said it was one of the great places in America. This, of course, comes after Bull Joakim Noah criticized Cleveland, which shows exactly what kind of person he is.
A correct one. Seriously, have you ever been to Cleveland? It sucks.
But also? James is number 23, right? He won’t be next year, of course, because he doesn’t think any player in the NBA is worthy of #23. Because #23 once belonged to — always belongs to — his hero: Michael Jordan.
A former Bull. Remember?
Oh, and also? James used to play in Chicago during the summers. Even participated in Jordan’s hoops camp. Once met Jordan — after a Cavs game — when he was a teen. Every time he goes up for a dunk, shoots a three or eats an Egg McMuffin, he’s thinking: Jordan, Jordan, Jordan.
Sure, the Bulls suck — though not as much as the city of Cleveland. But with James recalling Jordan, you can bet they’ll be instant contenders. Enjoy the ride, Cavs fans. You’re just about out of gas.
