Knicks are next in line with the King after Nets

Jun 26, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

The New York Daily News reports that the Knicks will meet with LeBron James on July 1st, the same day the New Jersey/soon-to-be Brooklyn Nets are scheduled to meet with James. The Nets will meet with James first, sending Jay-Z and owner Mikhail Prokhorov. The Knicks will send GM Donnie Walsh and head coach Mike D’Antoni.

The Knicks offer is likely to be centered around D’Antoni’s system and his ability to win games with the outright offensive style. It’s not known how the King’s going to take that after being eliminated by defensive squads and coming from a team that succeeded on account of defense.

Meeting in Akron, they won’t be able to show James the glitz and glamor of New York either. The Knicks seem set up to come in second, again.

    Lebron is a great player but not worth the money.

    It is starting to be painfully clear this is about everything else but what is on the court and the pursuit of a championship…

    maybe Walsh is going to fire D’Antoni right in front of LBJ

    Until Walsh sells the team, I wouldn’t expect too much. He’s turned a great franchise into a laughingstock.
