We thought that Lebron James getting the treatment from the NY superstars would do it, but I guess that Venus Williams was “aware” of Lebron’s imminent signing (unless this was all a Disney/ESPN sham) with the Miami Heat.
WASHINGTON – Venus Williams says LeBron James would look good in a Miami Heat uniform.
Williams spoke at the National Press Club on Wednesday promoting her new book and James was one of the topics she touched on during a question-and-answer session.
The Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., resident endorsed Miami as a new home for James, the prize of this year’s NBA free-agent class.
“I’m from Florida, so Miami certainly is the best place,” Williams said. “I actually have a slide show prepared, if he wants to watch, on why. But I’m sure he’ll make the right decision.”
The quote above was from the Metro website, which you can check up on Goolge. But I am pretty sure the sticking point was not getting an endorsement from Venus Williams, as much as playing with the most stacked lineup in NBA history.
And don’t argue that somehow the Lakers lineup of Gary Payton, Karl Malone, Shaq & Kobe was better, since those old legs couldn’t beat the Clippers if they had to play them in the finals.
