What will it take for Knicks to get LeBron?

Newsday
by Ken Berger

Speculation about LeBron James's free agent future includes the oft-repeated, but dubious claim, that the Nets could be playing in Brooklyn by 2010.

According to several NBA sources, James wouldn't necessarily choose the Knicks over the other team that is scheduled to call the metropolitan area home sometime that same year. The Nets plan to be playing in Brooklyn in 2010 or 2011 and figure to have better complementary pieces and more cap flexibility by then. Throw in LeBron's much- publicized friendship with Nets part-owner Jay-Z, and you wonder what hip-hop star the Knicks would have to counter with to compete.
