Rumors Are Rumors....Just Give Me The Facts LeBron!

"The Summer Of LeBron" has officially begun with the NBA Draft coming to a close last night and NBA free agency set to begin next week. Possibly what could be considered the greatest collection of free agents in NBA history are all set to sail on a journey that will not only bring them riches, but many irate discussions among fans about the efforts of their respective team in landing one of the top names available.

The Chicago Bulls find themselves right in the middle of "TSOL" with the way the organization has gone about slashing payroll headed into the off season. The Bulls currently sit around $30,000,000 dollars under the NBA's salary cap for the '10-'11 season which could lure one BIG free agent or work the numbers to bring in two BIG free agents. The Bulls not only have the money to spend, but we all know that the youth and skill of Derrick Rose/Joakim Noah is as attractive to any free agent wanting to win a title in a short period of time in a weak Eastern Conference.

Ever since the top seeded Cleveland Cavaliers early exit from the NBA postseason happened, story after story about where LeBron James (the top free agent on the NBA market) would land popped up quicker than tweets about the World Cup. However, how much truth is behind the stories we read and can we really trust where the information is coming from?
