THERMONUCLEAR NBA FREE AGENCY EXPLOSION, ACTIVATE. Form of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh not being on the same page and LeBron’s agent taking meetings with the Cavs, Suns, Mavericks and Rockets and this sentence might just keep going forever because seriously, LeBron James is going to be on the free market (probably) which is the greatest thing in the history of the NBA and America and probably the Milky Way Galaxy.
The agent for LeBron James has met this week with officials from multiple teams interested in courting James in free agency, according to sources close to the process.
The exact number of teams to secure face-to-face meetings with Cleveland-based Rich Paul was not immediately known, but sources told ESPN.com that the Phoenix Suns, Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks and James’ home state Cleveland Cavaliers have had the opportunity to make presentations to Paul in recent days.
ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard reports that Suns owner Robert Sarver met with Paul on Wednesday and pitched the idea of luring James from the Miami Heat to the desert by trying to sign Carmelo Anthony or Chris Bosh as well.
Which of course could mean:
Dragic &Bledsoe &LeBron &Melo &Bosh

Well, okay, probably not LeBron & Melo & Bosh, but anything is possible, so dream away! Or maybe LeBron goes back to Cleveland and holy hell, how is that actually a possibility? Or he teams up with Dirk Nowitzki, and the Mavericks never miss another 3-pointer in history. Same with the Rockets.
What about Pat Riley and his front office shenanigans? They might not be enough, says the Great and Powerful Woj:
Unless Pat Riley lines up talent appealing to James within cap structure soon, one LBJ suitor says: "LeBron seems ready to explore market."

So the world is your oyster, NBA fans, because LeBron James and the rest of the Big 3 are having communication problems. It’s a wonderful time to be alive.
2014 NBA Free Agency has officially started. Take it away, Mills Lane.
