Now that Donald Sterling has agreed to the sale of the Clippers to Steve Ballmer, thanks to a deal negotiated by his estranged wife. It is to be noted that James was one of the most vocal NBA’ers in support of the move.
“We’re fighting to get an owner out of our league who shouldn’t be a part of our league,” he said. “No matter how long it takes, no matter how much money it costs, we need to get him out of there — and whoever is associated with him doesn’t belong in our league.”
However now that this has come up and with LeBron’s pending free agency coming up, according to ESPN, this cannot be overlooked.
The NBA Finals haven’t even started yet, but it’s not too early to consider the future of one of its principle participants. LeBron James’ pending free agency is hard to overlook. From the moment James formed the Big Three in Miami, potential suitors had July 2014 marked on their calendars. In February, ESPN.com reporters Brian Windhorst and Ramona Shelburne explained that we shouldn’t necessarily assume James will re-up with Miami, no matter what happens this postseason. They also argued that if he leaves the Heat, the Los Angeles Clippers are a logical destination.
We also published a story that the only reason LeBron did not consider the Clippers before he made the decision was because he didn’t want to play for Sterling. Considering this new development as far as the Clippers are concerned. Would it be a move that LeBron will make?
