Cashman: "LeBron James is going to be a Knick"

I know, I know, this is a Yankees blog, but at least it involves Cashman and LeBron is a Yankees fan, and this is the biggest story in sports right now.

From Ian O'Conner:
"LeBron James is going to be a Knick," Brian Cashman, ace free-agent recruiter, said Monday after hearing the Stoudemire news . "I'm convinced of it. New York is the place that will allow him to be the player and person he wants to be, and it's coming together. Just listen to me, LeBron James will be a Knick."
Does Cashman know something those geniuses over at ESPN don't? Probably not. He also probably has the false idea that coming to NY in basketball is the same as it is in baseball, but thanks to the work of Isiah Thomas and company it's not. New York and MSG may be the mecca of basketball, but the Knicks have been a laughing stock for nearly a decade. But as a Knicks fan I hope he's right. This town and this team needs LeBron.

As I'm sure you know the announcement will come live tomorrow @ 9 PM on ESPN.
