Rumor: LeBron James Could Be Targeting Ray Allen

LeBron James, as we all know, is a mad scientist. He wants to get himself, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh all together on the same team to form the new "Dream Team." Or, you know, the new "Big Three."

Now it looks like LeBron could be targeting free agent Ray Allen to join said "Dream Team":

LeBron James is calling the possible union of Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and of course, the King himself, "Dream Team."

Those were the words James used when he reached out to another free agent in the past 10 days and pitched the idea of joining them.

"He said, 'Would you be willing to take less to join Dream Team?'" the player, who did not want to be identified, told the Daily News. "He said his people were putting it together."

Allen would seem to fit the puzzle as he would be the "shooter" of the group:

I've come across a source who has told me that free agent player could be Ray Allen. The source tells me that Allen has spoken to James and his preference is to remain with the Celtics, but that's predicated on Paul Pierce remaining with the team. The money is not a huge factor. Winning more championships is the most important factor.

According to the source, Allen has spoken to James and would consider joining said, "Dream Team." Along with possibly taking less money if it was the perfect opportunity.

LeBron, Bosh, Wade and Allen all together in the Eastern Conference. Now that's scary.
