ESPN's Simmons Speculates On Potential LeBron James Move To Roc Nation

DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE: USA TODAY's Sam Amick wrote the time has "officially come to stop romanticizing the relationship with James and Wesley, and not only because of the obvious fact that the soon-to-be four-time MVP was willing to leave him behind and work with Paul in a partnership that isn't ending anytime soon." The reality is that James has "long since moved on from that overhyped chapter." A source said that James and Wesley "hardly, if ever, speak these days." While Jay-Z and James are "known to be close friends, there is no reason to believe discussions of any sort are taking place between the titans of their respective industries about this kind of plan" (USATODAY.com, 4/27).
