Knicks Forward Al Harrington Doesn't Think LeBron James Should Leave Cleveland

Al Harrington is currently a member of the New York Free Agents Knicks, so you’d think he’d have some sort of directive from management to talk up the Knicks’ situation as a way to get LeBron James to sign with them.

Apparently, Harrington hasn’t received that memo. Or, more hilariously, maybe he received it and doesn’t care because he’s probably not going to be with the team next year anyway.

The New York Post caught up with Harrington before last Monday’s Knicks-Cavaliers game and asked him about LeBron. Here’s what he had to say:

“A lot of teams would love to have him and the Knicks are one of them,” Harrington told The Post in the visiting locker room at Quicken Loans Arena Monday night.

“But if he’s as loyal as he says, I would think it’s very hard for him to leave, especially because he’s home.

“If it was a different city, maybe not as much a connection, but at the end of the day, he generates every single thing for this whole state. It would be tough for him to make that decision to leave.”

Somewhere in Madison Square Garden, someone with the Knicks is calling Harrington in for a meeting explaining that you don’t tell LeBron to re-sign with the enemy. Harrington pretends to listen, but is really tuning them out. Then, he goes to practice and shoots a jump shot during a passing drill. Because he’s Al Harrington, and that’s what he does.
