If the opportunity to win was one was one of LeBron’s priorities of a new home, he may have a pretty tempting offer on the table. The Harlem Globetrotters, bane of the Washington Generals, have extended offers to both LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. I guess they “misplaced” the number of Bryant Reeves’ representation.
In a serious effort/marketing move, the Harlem Globetrotters are making a pitch to sign LeBron & Dwyane Wade & offering ownership. They will offer 51 percent of revenue from licensed merchandise sales with no limit plus part ownership. Well, they haven’t lost since ’71. –USAToday.com via @PDcavsinsider
The Globetrotters have already begun selling jerseys for LeBron and Dwyane for $75, a small price to pay for what I’m sure will be an awesome novelty item in 10 years. The team was nice enough to give the two nicknames before they even joined the squad, which caused Curly Neal to grumble that they need to “pay their dues.” LeBron would wear #6, with “King” on the back, while Wade would wear #3, with “D-Wade” on the back. There’s no way this is going to happen. Unless they watched the movie Semi-Pro and said to themselves “Yea, that looks like a reasonable career decision.”
