Report: LeBron to Sign John Wall to Marketing Firm

Yahoo! says that Biz LeBron is close to landing Wall for LRMR, his marketing company: “James befriended Wall at his All-American camp as a high school senior, traveled to campus to watch him play and even enlisted rapper Drake to woo Wall to LRMR, James’ fledgling marketing company. Now, multiple NBA, agent and sneaker industry sources say Wall is close to partnering with the firm. As the projected No. 1 pick in the 2010 NBA draft, perhaps the most-hyped pro prospect since James himself, Wall will have his marketing and endorsements guided with the perks of a partnership with the globe’s biggest basketball star. James’ childhood friend, Maverick Carter, is the CEO of LRMR and responsible for running his management company. Carter’s had a consistent presence with Wall’s AAU coach and surrogate, Brian Clifton, for months, and Clifton offered nothing to dispute the word of sources who say James and Wall are going into business together. Clifton insisted there’s nothing ‘formal in place’ with LRMR, and an announcement wouldn’t happen until Wall completes paperwork to enter the draft.”

    @ BOING DYNASTY”A BUST LIKE ROSE AND TYREKE…”
    DUDE YOU NEED TO STICK WITH FIGURE SKATING SPORT BECAUSE YOU HAVE NO CLUE ABOUT THE NBA. YOU MUST BE MENTALLY CHALLENGE OR THE ELEVATOR DOESN’T GO UP TO THE TOP FLOOR.

  • Sean

    @ Kingsmen… clearly he was being sarcastic.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    @Kingsmen – what you just said, is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
    At no point, in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought.
    Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.
    I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

  • LOAF

    sarcasm just dont slide on the internet

  • Chris

    Can someone just kick Kingsmen off for being a huge idiot. people that can’t understand sarcasim piss me off.

    Sarcasm may be hard to detect on the internet.. but, I mean come on, that was pretty obvious. The bigger news is that people are so easily offended, and it’s not even a personal attack on them. LOL

    @Hursty – gotta love the Billy Madison reference…

  • BackInBlack

  • mad max

    clowns.

  • nastierthanu

    Another example why highschoolers need to go to college so they can learn the financial aspect of the league. Oh wait

    I will now refer Gus to my 11.18am coment to “KINGSMEN”. Then I shall repeat the exact same message. But for him.

    @Hursty HURRAY! you have discovered the copy-paste function! gee, i wonder what other great discoveries await you for the rest of the day

    Gus – Get off your high-horse here.. my comment was a Billy Madison quote directed at someone other than you, who (obviously) over-reacted to a piece of BLATANT sarcasm. Please tell me you knew Boing was joking right? Everyone else seemed to.

  • unrel

    i’ve already forgot what the story was..

  • Drew

    @TADOne – Can you imagine if New Jersey does land Wall and LBJ decides he wants to go there at the last minute…That would be an instant powerhouse in the East.

  • mikedob

    @Hursty………. two words, CLE-VER!!!
    That might be the funniest line ever in a movie.

    But to the topic at hand, is LBJ trying to have his own branch of Nike like Jordan, and start getting the top young players before they sign with Jordan?

  • mtgyles

    @KINGSMEN I have to rip on you man im sorry. You’re just stupid lol.

  • LA Huey

    Is it too late to comment on the story?
    So I’m not trying to hate but are there NBA rules against what LBJ is doing? I know it’s not NBA-related and more just to do with off-court business but…

  • Saku 39

    @LA Huey
    I was thinking the same thing. Seems like this might pose as a conflict of interest. If LBJ throws a lazy crosscourt pass that Wall happens to intercept for a fastbreak dunk, I might be suspicious.

    im @ school library literally lmfao hahahaha

  • JD

    Mike Beasley was more hyped than John Wall

  • Rob

    He’s gonna start talking about himself in the third person pretty soon. Welcome to Egoland John Wall.

  • http://www.boogiewilliams.com Boing Dynasty

    Gotta love an ALL CAPS b!tch fit.

  • D

    maybe he was being ironic about boing’s ironic sarcasm

  • wong tong

    that childhood buddy from LBJ must be the most luckiest motherfuxker on the entire universe

  • Rusty

    @wong tong, luckier then Lebron?

  • Jake

    10 bucks says the Nets don’t even get 1st pick.
