Which team is fit for a king? This summer's most sought-after NBA free agent, LeBron James, is moments away from ending the speculation by announcing which team he plans to sign with during the hour-long special, LEBRON JAMES: THE DECISION, currently airing live on TSN and TSN.ca (encore at 12 midnight ET on TSN2).
Following the announcement, TSN NBA analyst Jack Armstrong joins SPORTSCENTRE at 10 p.m. ET on TSN with his take on James' decision and what it means for the rest of the NBA.
Stuart Scott hosts the one-hour special and is joined by NBA analysts Michael Wilbon and Jon Barry. James will announce his decision in a preliminary interview with Jim Gray followed by an extensive interview with Wilbon.
In one of the greatest free-agent classes in the history of the NBA with a list that included superstars such as Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade, the biggest story is of course “King” James. The two-time reigning NBA MVP has been the subject of non-stop speculation since the end of the post-season in which his Cleveland Cavaliers fell to the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
The teams rumoured to be in the running for James' services include the Cavaliers, Heat, Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks, New Jersey Nets and Los Angeles Clippers.
James' announcement comes on the heels of yesterday's major free-agent news that both Bosh and Wade will sign with the Miami Heat.
