According to Adrian Wojnarowksi of Yahoo! Sports: “To listen to World Wide Wes, LeBron will never look back on Cleveland. ‘He’s up out of there,’ is the way he tells it to people, but LeBron’s Akron crew has to tsk-tsk such public talk because they all live in Northeast Ohio, and maybe always will. ‘We’re going to Chicago,’ William Wesley tells people, ‘and Chris Bosh is coming, too.’”
Those are big words from a highly respected and very connected man. If you don’t know anything about William Wesley, then you should read this fascinating post by TrueHoop’s Henry Abbott.
Based on what’s known about him, Wesley’s opinion should not be taken lightly. That said, the only opinion that will matter in the end is LeBron’s. And we still have no idea what he’s really thinking.
Of course, Wesley’s words add just that much more fuel to the “LeBron to the Bulls” rumor fire.
Although I can’t seem to find it, Rose reportedly added another tweet that said: “as of 2day the Bulls have the best chance of landing LBJ…Miami would need to make more roster moves…Clips have a punchers chance!” And that was before the Bulls traded Kirk Hinrich to clear extra cap space.
Now K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune has tweeted: “As someone who covered Rose during his Bulls days, know this: He doesn’t talk out of school. So his LBJ intel shouldn’t be discounted.”
I don’t know if any of this will mean anything when the contracts are all on the table…
…but it’s pretty exciting.
