[UPDATE 12:24 p.m.: Now that Lebron James had made his decision, use this as an open thread to dicusss it.]
Memo to Lebron James. Forget the Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat or the NBA entirely. Oh, and forget the Dallas Cowboys, too. Why not come and play tight end for the New York Giants? I mean, shoot, why go back to Cleveland and be second fiddle to Johnny Manziel anyway, or hang out in Miami and try to prop up old man Dwayne Wade?
Here are a couple of wishful tweets with the same idea:
BREAKING NEWS : Lebron James has decided to come to New York to play Tight End for the Giants— Jonathan Capace (@Capace17) July 10, 2014
We're kidding, of course, but think about what kind of target the 6-foot-8, 250 pound James would be for Eli Manning.
Anyway, while the world is waiting for Lebron to make his decision here are some of the more interesting tweets generated recently about Lebron. This is the kind of stuff Twitter was made for.

This stuff just goes on and on. We might as well have fun with it.
