All the hype and media that has been going around dealing with LeBron James coming to the New York Knicks in 2010 might have just gone down a notch.

King James and his Cavaliers lost Game Six of the Eastern Conference Finals to the Orlando Magic last night.

If Cleveland would have went on to win that series in seven games, and then defeat the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA Finals, James's chances of coming to the Knicks would have been much higher.

He would have given the city a MVP Award and a NBA Finals trophy, and then he could have went on his merry way to New York City.

Since that did not happen, James has one more opportunity next year to win a championship for Cleveland and give them what they want. If they do not succeed in winning the championship next year, his odds of resigning with the Cavaliers would be much higher because all he wants to do is win a championship for the city of Cleveland and his team.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are also in discussion with Chinese investors who are interested in buying a part of the organization.

That is just another bad sign for the Knicks because if they do buy the Cavaliers, then they will throw millions of dollars at James to stay with the team.

As it stands right now, the closest LeBron James is to New York City is his Yankee hat that he wore to a 2007 playoff game between the Yankees and the Cleveland Indians.
