For 2 years we have been on the LeBron watch which will culminate when he finally hits free-agency on July 1st at midnight EST. There are newspapers and other local media outlets pulling out the pompoms begging the King come and crown their kingdom, there are "LeBron Clocks" on websites and somehow ESPN has sent out more people than they do when they are stalking Brett Favre.
Past all the adoration everybody is speculating where he will play and one of the major parts of his decision has to do with the people who he'll be playing with and for so it has become everybody's quest to find out anything they can between LeBron and his suitors and in the last five months I have seen published reports that any of the following people are close with him and may influence where he'll end up.
And this is not including Maverick Carter who is his manager and high-school buddy and some dude named World Wide Wes who actually represent him
Every time there is a team in the mix, somebody mentions how close LeBron is to the point guard. The dude is 25 he can't be that close to every celebrity can he?
The only people not on his Christmas card list are Jordan Crawford, Braylon Edwards and Delonte West. Tom Izzo might get a card but it will get sent through a third-party
