So, LeBron James will be a free agent at midnight tonight.
And the Sixers are drooling.
However, ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, a Clevelander who passes as LeBron’s Whisperer, called into ESPN with the latest:
“I think [the 76ers] are viable, but I would have to hear from Joel Embiid, if I were LeBron James. Because I don’t see the basketball match for LeBron in Philadelphia. You would need Joel Embiid to be sitting at the table with LeBron and say I’m ready to play with you, I’m ready to go stand in the corner like you needed Chris Bosh and Kevin Love to do over the last eight years to make this work.”
