OMG, the Knicks had another meeting with LeBron James. Well, not exactly James himself. Knicks GM Donnie Walsh confirmed to ESPN "that the Knicks' sent assistant GM Glen Grunwald to Cleveland for a second meeting with LeBron's agent, Leon Rose, on Saturday. But he said the meeting was just to clarify the team's cap situation both this year and the next. 'We didn't get into it in our first meeting the way we wanted to,' Walsh said. 'We just wanted to make sure they had all the information.'"
In other words, the Knicks didn't get their point across in their Thursday meeting. Or they wanted to point out their $100 million offer to Amare Stoudemire. Still, the NY Times wants to put things in perspective, "A second meeting with James could heighten the Knicks’ hopes of landing him and increase the disappointment if he signs elsewhere. The Knicks were not the first team that secured additional face time with Rose; the Miami Heat president, Pat Riley, and Andy Elisburg, a senior vice president, met Rose the evening before the team’s delegation made a pitch to James on Friday."
Yesterday, the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reported, "According to multiple league sources, the Knicks were trailing other competitors in the running to sign James. The Cavs and Bulls are believed to be the favorites with the New Jersey Nets still in the game mostly because of James' relationship with part owner Jay-Z." It's believed that James will make up his mind on Thursday, after his three-day LeBron James Skills Academy finishes on Wednesday.
