The Lakers and Celtics are making this an NBA Finals to be remembered, with it currently tied up at two games each.

But the other story rivalling this at the moment is the upcoming NBA free agent sweepstakes, starting 1 July 2010, when an incredible group of free agents including LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Amare Stoudemire will become available to other teams.

The picture above (thanks SLAMOnline) was just too good not to share here – absolutely brilliant as it depicts LeBron in some of his possible new homes – New York, Chicago, Miami or New Jersey. You can read SLAM’s article about the LeBron lottery – “Good Morning NY!” – for a fascinating breakdown between the two different considerations for the king – LeBasketball and LeBusiness. Definitely worth a read.

And for fans of the NBA, we have all the fun of a dream Final, and then still this free agent business playing out to look forward to.

Let the fun begin!

Note – has written a short series on LeBron’s six possible destinations. Even though Cleveland is the likely winner, still interesting to read. Here they are in the “Tour de LeBron” series (with the odds in the article in brackets):
