The most sought after free agent in history is attracting the attention of everyone, including President Barack Obama, who recently sat down with Marv Albert on the White House’s basketball court. The interview will air in its entirety Tuesday at 8:00pm during pregame coverage of the Lakers and Suns on TNT. Ever the Chicago connoisseur, Obama made his push for LeBron James to come to the Bulls. When Albert asked,
“Would you, on behalf of the Bulls, perhaps throw in a night in the Lincoln bedroom, or a ride on Air Force One?”
“You know, like I said, I don’t want to meddle. I will say this: Rose, Noah … it’s a pretty good core. You could see LeBron fitting in pretty well.”
It does make sense for James to go to a divisional rival, if he is unsatisfied with Cleveland. And with Cleveland recently firing Head Coach Mike Brown, if James is still cool with him, they might both go to Chicago and LeBron James, Derrick Rose, and Joakim Noah could form Chicago’s own Big Three, to face Boston’s Little Three and Big One. Remember how awesome the Bulls/Celtics playoff series was last year? Imagine throwing LeBron James into the mix. Killer, eh?
