Earlier on Tuesday, news broke that LeBron James would be ending his offseason silence in an interview with CNN's Larry King, set to air Friday night. This was big and important news because ... well, we're not exactly sure why. To say that King's relevance has slipped a bit in the recent years is an understatement on par with saying a skateboard is an important part of skateboarding.
Anyways, if you just cannot wait until Friday to hear a couple of Kings go back-and-forth, Cleveland Plain Dealer's Brian Windhorst has been tweeting a sneak peek of sorts. Here's a collection of what's in store:
LeBron to King on FA meeting: It will be fun to get all the free agents together and...figure out a way how we can make the league better
More LeBron with King: "We both, myself and Mike Brown, didn't accomplish what we wanted to, and that was the NBA championship."
LeBron: "It's not always about the city. It's about winning."
LeBron: "If u put me and Bosh on the same team, if you put me and Wade on the same team...a lot of teams would be much better." [ed. note: What?]
LeBron: "As far as saving the city economically, I can't get 2 involved. I can't let that be a decision of mine or what I do with my future.
LeBron on the free agent crop: "I am the ringleader."
LeBron on Clippers: "Some really nice, solid pieces that, u know, if they add a free agent...it could be a really good team."
LeBron on FA decision: "I'm far from close..I've thought about it, but I haven't began to strategize exactly."
And then, finally:
Based on transcipt, Larry King put "ringleader" in LeBron's mouth. 140 characters too small for this stuff. Going to stop now.
