NBA -- Will The King be a Knick in 2018?​


PhilBoxing.com




​NEW YORK -- ​For the past six months or ​so​ the​ NBA has been buzzing about the mess in New York ​as it pertains to the direction that former ​team president Phil Jackson ​took the Knicks.

​From the get-go I never believed signing Jackson would lead the Knicks to the Promised Land. The Zen Master, arguably the best coach of all time, ​had zero experience required to be a good GM.

Jackson​, who has more rings than he has fingers, tried and desperately failed to ​imitate what former New York and L​akers ​coach Pat Riley was able to do in Miami.

When Riley defected to Miami in 1994, it seemed as though he learned on the job (Coach and GM) to balance both roles until he evolved into what he is today, a battled-tested team president.

In the aftermath of Jackson’s tactics of trying to rid the New York of their best player, Carmelo Anthony, he is reportedly now willing to waive his “no trade clause” and leave New York. Down in Cleveland, Kyrie Irvin​g​, who won a championship ​with LeBron is 2016 ​has requested to be traded from the Cavaliers. One of the teams Kyrie is reportedly interested in ​joining ​is the New York Knicks.

The Knicks is reportedly “h​ot” for that trade and has been working every angle to make that possible, except ​involving Kristaps ​Porzingis​ in the equation. ​

​But according to reports, ​any deal for Irving would have to include Porzingis. So both teams are at a standstill, as New York has labeled Porzingis “untouchable”.

Per multiple reports, ​LeBron ​is set to ​leave Cleveland in 2018, but is undecided as to his next and likely last destination. It’s rumored that he will join the LA Lakers headed by Magic Johnson teaming up with Lonzo Ball in what would be Ball’s sophomore year.

LeBron is 32​, a 14-year veteran who entered the NBA at age 18.​ He no doubt has “wear and tear” ​like most athletes to, but he takes good care of himself and is constantly in shape.​on his body like any athlete, but he reportedly takes good care of himself​. ​

Trying to reach the playoffs playing in the West conference​ with stronger competition is a “whole different animal” than playing in the ​weak East.

Th​at being said, it makes more sense for LeBron to finish his career in New York simply because the path to the NBA Finals is much easier.

So, will LeBron perform under the bright lights of Broadway?
