Well that didn’t take too long.
Literally the second after the NBA finals wrapped up, silly season has begun.
Want proof? Check out this tweet from Joel Embiid:
Trust The Process!!!! Find a new slant @KingJames

See what I mean?
And there’s more…
I think it’s fair to say that this year’s free agency is going to revolve around LeBron James. Forget about Paul George and DeMarcus Cousins.
No one’s even talking about Julius Randle. By the way, he’s a restricted free agent and someone can simply snatch him away from the Lakers.
But let’s get back to business.
Everyone’s joining in on the Twitter fun. Even the Spurs:
Maybe not the whole team, but Dejounte Murray is defintely joining in the recruit-LeBron-on-Twitter trend.
Even Enes Kanter has an idea:

The question now is, will LeBron go back to wearing #6 instead of #23? Enes Kanter certainly knows something we don’t.
For the teams however, it’s still a little bit too early to make moves. The first day you can actually make moves is on draft day and players can’t sign until July.
There’s quite a bit of time before we can see some actual moves by teams and that’s the fun part, this is silly season and for at least a couple of weeks every year we can come up with outrageous ideas and conspiracy theories and they’re all going to make sense because nothing is ever final until you put pen on paper.
So, are you ready for silly season? Oh yes!
