As if we didn’t have enough breathless updates, LeBron James’ buddy Chris Paul of the Hornets talked LeBron into signing up for Twitter.
As of the time of this update, @kingjames had over 81,000 followers, but not a single tweet.
You’re not going to get anything done the rest of the day, are you, waiting for him to tweet?
Also, the Bulls are reportedly still exploring a sign-and-trade with the Raptors for Chris Bosh:
ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard reported Tuesday morning that the Raptors have told the Cavaliers they are willing to sign-and-trade Bosh to them.
That, of course, would significantly increase the Cavaliers’ chances of retaining LeBron James. League sources couldn’t immediately independently confirm Broussard’s report.
The Raptors have made clear their desire for Joakim Noah in sign-and-trade talks with the Bulls, who have resisted those efforts. The Bulls have proposed a package involving Taj Gibson, multiple first-round draft picks and a trade exception.
Just when you thought the breathless speculation and guessing had ended for the day, there are these nuggets. Don’t leave your computer or smartphone for a second.
