I have predicted that the Nets, with their new ownership and future move to Brooklyn, should be taken more seriously as contenders for LeBron James.
It looks like I may be vindicated.
Rumours are circulating that James has shortlisted his next move to staying at the Cavs, moving to Chicago or joining his boy Jay-Z at the Nets in what would be a shock move.
But one that would be amazing for the Nets and maybe NBA basketball as a whole given Mikhail Prokhorov's ambition to make the Nets the first truly global franchise.
The fact that James is now going to delay his decision until later in the week, after he has done a high school Nike Skills Academy in Cleveland, seems to indicate that he may well be leaving his home state. If he was staying with the Cavs, he would have no reason not to announce it now.
Chicago may be the obvious alternative. But I think most pundits have got it badly wrong in judging LeBron James as a man who does things according to what may seem conventional.
Could the soon-to-be Brooklyn Nets be a Championship winning side led by LeBron James? I think so.
