Simmons on Lebron

2

Thought the article was top notch and worth a read. Makes a lot of good points of which I will quickly summarize: 1.) Postulates that Wade, Bosh and possibly Lebron had already made their decision in weeks prior and have dragged out the free agency process for publicity reasons. Defends his argument with the following points: A. Bosh and Wade both hired camera crews to film their free agent travails B. The supposed secret pact the three (or four if you include Paul) made during the Olympics. C. Wade's age/injury concerns equates to this being his final major contract, and so it was always Miami all along. D. Wade re-visiting Chicago was a class reality TV ploy to garner more interest in his cause. E. Bosh is an attention whore. 2. Questions the validity of Bosh's superstar status through various points and references, many of which are at least thought-provoking, if not true. 3. Analyzes the Lebron team and the repercussions today's decision will have on the NBA, including specific possibilities for the major teams in contention for his services. 4. Lots of other ancillary points, sports commentary and the usual niche references. Go read it, it's a good brain workout.
