The New York Daily News is reporting that the Knicks have today conceded that Lebron James will be joining the Heat, with coach Mike D’antoni going so far as to say he is “stunned” by James’ choice.
Knicks officials conceded Thursday that they are likely out of the James sweepstakes with Mike D’Antoni going as far as to say he is “stunned” by James’ apparent decision to leave Cleveland and join the Miami Heat along with Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and of course Riley, the former Knicks coach who led the Lakers and Heat to titles.
In the last hour, the New York Post reported that James has reserved 25 rooms at the W Hotel in South Beach for tonight, and is planning a party.
We’ll be holding out hope that the Post’s story is untrue, especially with all of the secrecy surrounding James’ announcement. Is it odd that story wasn’t broken by a Florida paper?
