With “sources” pointing to the Miami Heat as the favorite to land LeBron James, and “sources” saying the King will celebrate his decision in South Beach this weekend, it seems all but official that James will join forces with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Florida next season.
But we have already bitten on media-driven head fakes many times this summer, and it wouldn’t be surprising to find out that this is yet another one.
I, for one, am quite excited for the announcement tonight — in a shameful way. A giddiness is building up in me, akin to what I’ve felt for past season finales of guilty pleasures like “American Idol.” But part of me feels like I did during the hours leading up to the series finale of “Lost” — sad that all the anticipation is building up to what’s sure to be a disappointing end, but relieved to know that all the madness will soon be over.
My prediction? LeBron will reveal that he’s been dead the whole time.
All fantasy ramifications aside (for now), let us know which team you think LBJ will name during his televised decision tonight. Vote in the poll below and voice your thoughts in the comments section.
