The Knicks Freak Out Over Nets Billboard

The New Jersey Nets are going all out to change their image and to improve the NBA's worst team. That means going after LeBron James and other premier free agents. It also includes buying a giant billboard right outside of Madison Square Garden that has infuriated Knicks owner James Dolan. He claims the billboard intimidates his employees. Wow, can you say thin skinned!

The Latest on LeBron, Chris Bosh, and Dwyane Wade

There is a report that says a summit of the three major names in this year's free agent class - LeBron James, Chris Bosh, and Dwyane Wade held a meeting over the weekend in Miami to discuss their options as the July 1st start of free agency is almost here.

There is also another report that says that Dwyane Wade was in Chicago for several days last week including the weekend which would make a Saturday/Sunday rendezvous of the superstars in Miami impossible.

Well, here is the truth. I spoke with Wade and Bosh's agent Henry Thomas just moments ago and he told me that the three stars did not meet in Miami over the weekend. Wade met with his agent in Thomas' office on Saturday and then took his children to the Cubs - Sox game which was held on Saturday evening at U.S. Cellular Field.

"Dwyane was here in Chicago over the weekend and did not meet with LeBron and Chris in Miami over the weekend," Thomas told me. "Have these guys talked about their futures with one another? Absolutely, and I am sure they will talk again. However, this report of a summit over the weekend in Miami involving Dwyane is untrue. He was here in Chicago with his kids and when he left town on Sunday he was not headed back to Miami. That I can tell you."

In addition, Wade's enormous marketing presence through deals with Converse, T-Mobile, and others were all developed and negotiated by Thomas and after the free agency process is completed Wade and Bosh should see increased exposure and dollars through another brilliant marketing campaign devised by Thomas. That all has to be factored into the decision making process because the money available in free agency is one thing but the marketing dollars and Thomas' expertise could take the process to another level.
