Dime Magazine #58: LeBron vs. The World

Photobucket

Dime’s Austin Burton goes into how LeBron’s actions this offseason may have set the tone for the future of player power moves. If they didn’t realize it before, today’s NBA athletes know they aren’t merely pawns to be shuffled around a chessboard by GM’s and owners. If they have the talent and the earning power, players can control their own destiny. Not long after LeBron, D-Wade and Chris Bosh joined in Miami, there was talk of Amar’e bringing Carmelo Anthony and either Chris Paul or Tony Parker to New York; and as other superstars become free agents, it will only continue. Dime #58 isn’t all about LeBron. We also have features on Carlos Boozer’s new life in Chicago, Marc Gasol, Monta Ellis‘ ink, Trevor Ariza’s offseason training, a FIBA World Championship preview, and the fastest-rising Lottery pick in college basketball, among others.
