LeBron James Wanted To Sign With Knicks In 2010 Until Disastrous Meeting Took Place

 

On July 8, 2010, ESPN had its infamous live-broadcast of LeBron James’ decision, where he eventually announced that he would sign with the Miami Heat.

But, before LeBron decided to join Dwyane Wade in South Beach, he was very close to signing with the New York Knicks.

The Knicks apparently were James’ favored destination, and he would have signed with them, hadn’t the meeting been such a disaster. PerThe Bill Simmons Podcast

 

“From everyone that I’ve talked to in the know since then, it’s clear that the Knicks were the first choice. And I’m sorry Knicks fans, earmuffs. But it was basically the Knicks’ to lose, and they just couldn’t stay out of their own way. And the stories are legendary.

They had the legendary meeting. Donnie Walsh was in the wheelchair, and Dolan was Dolan. And it was just a complete; they didn’t have anything prepared. And it just couldn’t have gone worse, by all accounts. It was a disaster.”
