With LeBron James set to become a free agent after this season, Knicks fans have begun courting King James with billboards.
And who better to ask about their chances than LeBron's friend Dwyane Wade, who was in town with the Heat to play the Knicks on Friday night. Suffice to say, Wade didn't exactly give fans reason to start making Knicks jerseys with 'James' on the back.
"Good luck," Wade said with a smile, via Frank Isola of NY Daily News. "That's it."

Since the Knicks last were in the LeBron James Sweepstakes in 2010, the team has continued its cycle of hope followed by disappointment, as the team has finished with a record above .500 just three times while James has been in the finals every year since choosing his infamous free agent decision to sign with Miami.
The Knicks play the Bucks on Saturday night at 7 p.m.
