It's not just you, NBA executives think LeBron will be a Bull, too.

Thumbnail image for James_interview.jpgYou watched the draft day moves by the Chicago Bulls, saw they freed up almost enough room for two max guys to go along side Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah, and you thought, “That is where LeBron is going to go.”

You are not alone.

According to one NBA executive who spoke with the New York Times, LeBron is ChiTown bound.

The executive, who did not want to be identified discussing a player who is not yet a free agent, said he had gathered from discussions with his fellow N.B.A. executives that James was strongly leaning toward joining the Bulls in tandem with another free agent, Chris Bosh of the Toronto Raptors.

“I think it’s a done deal,” the executive said….

But their proposals will be without the flair and drama of a free-agent tour, because James has decided to have everyone come to him. Various teams, like the Knicks, had lined up chefs and celebrities to help attract James, but with the meetings in Ohio, the discussion will be about rosters, not restaurants.

“He is going to make a basketball decision, so all that is unnecessary,” the executive said. “He just saved a lot of people a lot of money.”

What we’ve learned: That NBA executives are thinking just like you. But until we get real word from LeBron and his inner circle, we don’t know.

Still, I’d rather be Chicago than just about any other team right now. Even Cleveland.

    All of you guys are all crazy. I just spent a half hour reading all of this laughing my ass off. Whoever listed all of the superstar combos…you forgot the best of all time scottie and michael. also, lbj should go to chicago and make the second best combo with d rose. screw the laker talk and the celtic talk and especially the sonic talk( however it was entertaining) and come down to reality. he’s not stayin in cleveland, where he would NEVER win anything. you guys are hilarious.

    “Who cares???” Obviously, you do! since you took the time to read the story AND spend your time commenting on it. I think everybody cares, EXCEPT the poor Boston fans who are still licking their wounds, when L.A. kicked your a$$es. LOL!! Maybe if Boston stopped acting like a bunch of bullies and punk Be-Yatchez when they play, maybe I will be a fan again.

    WHO CARES?” Obviously you do. Since you took time to read the story AND comment on it. Everybody cares, EXCEPT maybe the poor lackie Boston fans who are still sitting in a dark musty corner, pouting and licking their wounds after L.A. beat their A$$es. Tell your Boston players to stop acting like bullies and a bunch of punk BE-YATCHEZ, and maybe I can be a fan again.

    Well go to the Lakers and Celtics websites and comment there. Both teams are old as hell, and will need canes to play. Sorry but Chicago is about to wreck shop and return to the glory days and become the great UnbeataBULLS again (With OR Without James)

    As a life long bulls fan, It will make my season If we get a marque player. If we get Bron or Wade, Im personally getting a ticket from Sydney to CHI town for a few home games.
    And yeah, they will make it deep into the playoffs.
    Rose, Noah and Wade/Bron? What!?!
