The Big Jester & The King Together At Last

Well, this oughta upstage the draft, eh?

While the reactions to this trade are mixed at best, the most significant storyline regarding Big Diesel's move to Ohio concerns one LeBron James, and how 2009-10 is now about 95% likely to be his last in Cleveland.

Shaq has one year left on his contract, and is clearly being brought in at the behest of King James as a sign to the NBA that he wants to win next year, and will not accept anything less from his subjects. If they fail to deliver, he is on the next G5 to JFK or whereever else he deems worthy to re-establish his kingdom.

But even if the Cavaliers take it all next season (and obviously this move makes them serious favourites), you have to believe that LBJ will say, "Goodnight Cleveland! Thanks for the ONE ring!" and book it out of town.

I'm patiently awaiting the newest video from the wonderful people at Cleveland Tourism on the deal that guarantees one more year of people caring about their city.
