On Saturday, the Cleveland Cavaliers will fax a contract worth $75 million to Lebron James and begin waiting for him to say "yes", "no", or "let's wait a while". No team worries the Cavs more than the Nets. In a FAQ on the contract, the Cleveland Plain Dealer says plainly: "His friendship with Jay- Z could influence his decision to play for the Nets". Equally worrisome, the paper notes, his endorsements do indeed contain a kicker upping his income if he plays in New York...and Brooklyn is in New York.
