We’re only two days away from the official start of the NBA free agency season, B.K.A., The LeBron James Sweepstakes.
LeBron James is considered the prime catch of all the superstar free agents, but what can teams offer a man that has everything?
Well, the Jackie Moon deal comes to mind. For those who don’t know, Jackie Moon is a fictional character played by Will Ferrell in the 2008 comedic hit “Semi-Pro.”
In the movie, Ferrell’s character Moon, was the owner, coach and player for the Tropics. Yes, owner/coach/player. I know this sounds far fetched, but I’m sure this packaged deal would at least grab LeBron’s attention.
Don’t know if it’s legally feasible in today’s NBA, but Bill Russell was both player and coach for the Celtics back in the day.
As for the player/owner part of the deal, why not give LeBron five percent ownership in his next team; he’s worth it.
Okay, I know my delusions of grandeur will never be a reality, but LeBron James will have final say on some issues with his next franchise.
If he chooses the Bulls, he’ll likely hand pick the other free agents that the franchise signs. Even with all his greatness, that’s the closest to a Jackie Moon deal he will get.
