I'm not sure how to calculate the "league minimum salary" of the NBA. For LeBron James, I'm guessing it would be about a million dollars in salary for one year.
What he should do, is this: sign with the Los Angeles Lakers for one season, and accept the league minimum.
Lakers coach Phil Jackson will return next season, putting off retirement for at least another year to chase his 12th NBA championship.
Jackson made the announcement Thursday with a news release. The two-time defending champions’ coach said last week he was leaning toward retirement after another long season, but he changed his mind after getting a week to rest up at his offseason home in Montana.
“Count me in,” Jackson said. “After a couple weeks of deliberation, it is time to get back to the challenge of putting together a team that can defend its title in the 2010-11 season. It’ll be the last stand for me, and I hope a grand one.”
Yes. If you were to put LeBron James next to Kobe Bryant, and back them up with the team structure and system that the Lakers already have, you could almost guarantee another championship.
But, hey. I just come up with these things. I have no idea if it would work or not.
