Tea leaves point to LeBron signing with the Knicks?

We can file these in the ‘for what it’s worth’ category…

Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer shared the location of LeBron’s “Decision Show” on his Twitter feed:

Newsday is reporting LeBron will do show from Greenwich, CT. Guess technically it’s not New York, just a suburb.

FWIW, I have been told several times location is not indication of decision. But this whole thing is shades of gray.

CNBC reports MSG (Knicks parent) stock futures way up today. Trading of it has tripled.

It would be strange for LeBron to announce in a NY suburb that he’s going to re-sign with the Cavs. Then he’d miss out on all the adulation from his fans in Ohio. This seems to indicate that he’s headed to New York or New Jersey. The bit about MSG is probably the most compelling sign. Follow the money…follow the money…

From Jared Dudley’s Twitter feed:

Sources tell me LeBron will announce that he will be goin’ to the Knicks tomorrow on ESPN. This is serious.

That’s what I’m hearing.. I don’t care where he goes lol.. I personally thought he would stay in Cleveland..

I wonder if his source is Amare Stoudemire, his former teammate.

And really for what it’s worth, Chad Ochocinco chimes in as well:

*Empire State of Mind* *wink* *wink*only the smart folk will put this together and figure out what i am talking about #6

Then there’s Ric Bucher, who throws some cold water on the idea:

Rumors of NYK having legit shot at LeBron or him going to Mia seem like an attempt by LRMR to create suspense for Thurs show.

An NBA exec: “Who does a 1-hour special on how you just ripped the heart out of your hometown?” Now a 1-hr special on why you stayed…

The Knicks have always been the biggest upside/downside for LeBron. If he’s able to bring a title to New York, he will effectively own the city. With Amare Stoudemire already locked up, he has an All-NBA running mate and in Mike D’Antoni, he has a coach who can make best use of his considerable skills in the open court.

Of course, if Dudley’s source is mistaken, the location of the ESPN announcement and Ochocinco’s tweet could also mean LeBron’s headed to the Nets. (Jay-Z wrote “Empire State of Mind.”) Would LeBron diss good friend Jay-Z and sign with the Knicks?

What are the odds that this is all stays hush hush through tomorrow?
