LeBron King James a NY Knick, I "Guarantee It", Says NBHHCM
LeBron James has set the date for Thursday July 8, 2010 at 9:00pm on ESPN. That will be the time and network that the most sought after free-agent in team sports history decides if he will stay in Cleveland or leave the Cavaliers for Chicago, Miami, New Jersey, or New York.
LeBron to New York started December 30, 1984 (that was the day he was born). LeBron would rise up and become a 6'8, 240 pound 18 year-old man-child specimen that would live up to the hype and them some when he came right out of high school into the NBA in 2003. The last prep player that garnered that type of hype was a 7'2 center in 1966 from New York named Lew Alcindor (Kareem Abdul Jabbar).
LeBron was the 1st overall pick of the 2003 NBA Draft which is held every year at Madison Square Garden in New York. LeBron saw the big lights of the big city and became the talk of the town leading up to the draft. NY Knicks fans were saying, "I wish we could get that guy to play here. LeBron is made for the Big Apple."
He would be called "King James" before he stepped on a NBA floor. LeBron is a huge fan of hip-hop most notably rap icon Jay-Z who is also a personal friend of James as well. He admired the way Jay-Z held his post as the "King of Hip-Hop." LeBron wanted to some day become the "King of the NBA."
LeBron is often seen with a New York Yankees cap and has said that he's a big Yankees fan. Jay-Z and other hip-hop artists from NY also wear the Yankees caps and jerseys.
Everyone knows that winning in New York is better than winning anywhere else just ask Reggie, A-Rod, Jeter, Messier, Manning, or Broadway Joe.
This past November 6, 2009 after the New York Yankees celebrated their 27th World Series Championship LeBron played the Knicks at MSG for his lone Garden visit on the season. Yankees players and Jay-Z were in attendance to see the Cavaliers beat the Knicks 100-91. James put on a show scoring 33 points, with 8 rebounds, 9 assists, and 3 steals. Former New York Knick legend Patrick Ewing wore the #33. If you add the numbers 3+3=6. LeBron will be wearing #6 next season.
New York and the Honorable Mayor Michael Bloomberg proclaimed this past June as NBHHCM 2010 (National Basketball & Hip-Hop Culture Month). NBHHCM Founder Derrick E. Vaughan says, "that New York was the fastest US city to proclaim June as NBHHCM 2010, they approved the Proclamation in less than 4 business days from the time we mailed the packet for consideration." The Proclamation was approved on March 9, 2010. March 9th was the day that hip-hop icon Notorious B.I.G. passed away. Jay-Z often makes shout-outs to the late rapper.
Vaughan also states, "when the City of New York approved of the Proclamation I knew in my gut back in March that LeBron was coming to New York and that's why I can make this type of guarantee. It's something that you just feel."
So now the big stage is set for LeBron to be the "King of New York" he's the curent #1 NBA player to hoops and hip-hop culture and the NYC is the "Capital" of the culture. LeBron can now join his new teammate Amare Stoudemire and his buddy Jay-Z. He will wear the number #6 for the 2010-11 season just like Bill Russell and Dr. J. He's going to retire his number 23 in honor of Jordan only time will tell will he win 6 Championships like his idol. He's on the right track he'll be wearing #6 across his chest with the city New York above it.
