LeBron James is hitting the open market -- again.
James opted out of his contract with the Cavaliers on Friday, and will now be targeted by the Lakers, Rockets, 76ers, and others as the 33-year-old decides on his next landing spot.
The Knicks' chances of landing LeBron are probably tiny, and will shrink further if Enes Kanter opts in as expected. But James' former teammate, Ray Allen, said recently that James belongs in New York.
"Even before he chose to go to Miami, I thought, you know we call him the king, and the best place for the king is in Gotham City," Allen said Wednesday on WFAN during an appearance on the Boomer and Gio show. "I always felt that New York City was the best place, because when the NBA is at its best is when the Knicks are great."
Along with Allen, former NBA player Kenyon Martin and Knicks-killer Reggie Miller think James belongs with the Knicks. And both of them predicted it's where James will end up.
