Tom Thibodeau, Soon To Be Coaching LeBron James?

To get you quickly caught up: LeBron James is a basketball player. He is a very good basketball player. But he's also kind of selfish sometimes; some might even say he is a "jerk." And he has seemingly made it his mission to get his name in every single headline this offseason as he weighs his free agency options (sorry, NBA Finals!). So, it should be a fun June.

The latest example of this came on Saturday, when it was wondered aloud by Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski: could Tom Thibodeau, the new head coach of the Bulls, be joined in Chicago by LeBron?

World Wide Wes has been telling everyone that he believes LeBron James is leaning hard toward signing with the Chicago Bulls. No one can be certain if basketball's most famous middleman has been whispering honest insights to friends or amping the anxiety of Cleveland owner Dan Gilbert. Just know this: It wasn't until Tom Thibodeau - who swore he never again wanted an agent - signed with William Wesley's CAA that the Chicago Bulls grew serious about the coach's candidacy.

As one front-office executive with a franchise that has significant salary-cap space this summer said, "I think all the big free-agent deals will be done by July 1, if not the draft. The NBA would have a cow if [it] knew what's going on now."
