New York Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman told reporters today that he fully expects mega star prized free agent Lebron James to join the New York Knicks in the coming days.

The New York sports executive who has signed free agents to contracts totaling more than a billion dollars doesn’t believe the New York Knicks have any shot to land LeBron James.

Brian Cashman believes they have the only shot.

“LeBron James is going to be a Knick,” the New York Yankees‘ general manager said Monday after hearing the news that Amare Stoudemire had agreed in principle to play his home games at Madison Square Garden.

“I’m convinced of it. New York is the place that will allow LeBron to be the player and person he wants to be, and it’s all coming together. Just listen, LeBron James will be a Knick.”

Newest Knick Amar’e Stoudemire, whose 5 yr, $ 96 M contract was agreed to in principle today, attended the Yankees game on Sunday with Knicks’ owner Jim Dolan.

Let’s hope Cash is right.
