The visit was mainly to promote his new book “Shooting Stars” and the movie “More Than a Game”, but he also fielded questions about Shaq and next years free agency.
With Shaq, he’s excited to play with a “big kid” and thinks he may be the last piece.
With free agency, he said he’s excited about it but more excited about the upcoming year and will wait until free agency to answer speculative questions (he did all this while their weatherman shouted “Knicks” at him from off camera).
LeBron is the master of the tease. Is he teasing us? Is he teasing the rest of the NBA? Is he teasing Rachel Nichols?
Watch it here.
Here are my comments: Its the Summer. Nothing is happening. 2010 is a year away. WHY is this a story on TV right now?
The Tease in Effect
Relax, it’s just him making the rounds for his movie. LBJ is smart. He knows he can get TV time with anyone if he dangles the promise of talking about free agency with them. In other words, he’s trading talking about the SAME OLD STORY for face time to promote “More Than a Game“
