Contraction! Sayeth "King James"

Bouncing around the NBA is the latest observation from the self-appointed "King James". To those of us who prefer to call him Lebron James, we recognize him as very talented NBA player who made a bad decision to announce that he would be "taking my talents to South Beach" so publicly and without sensitivity to the Cleveland Cavs and fans.

So now, the man who engineered the latest bout of superstar consolidation now believes the NBA would do better to rid itself of the teams that "water down" the league. As he states:

"It's not my job; I'm a player, but that is why the league was so great," James said. "Imagine if you could take Kevin Love off Minnesota and add him to another team and you shrink the (league). Looking at some of the teams that aren't that great, you take Brook Lopez or you take Devin Harris off these teams that aren't that good right now and you add him to a team that could be really good."

In the typical fashion that Lebron employs, he immediately backtracks on his previous statement as if he never said it (even though he knows the statement will get wide circulation):

"I'm not saying let's take New Jersey and let's take Minnesota out of the league. But hey, you guys are not stupid, I'm not stupid, it would be great for the league."

In a nutshell, Lebron would like to see a consolidated NBA, one that would coincidentally justify his move to consolidate talent at South Beach. 

This from a guy who most recently said he doesn't like playing on Christmas Day because he likes being with his family even though his family lives in Ohio and he recently bought his mansion on South Beach. From a guy who complained about too much playing time in the opening weeks of the season.

Who does the public relations work for "King James." Does he really want fans other with the Heat to dislike him?
