Houston Rockets: Patrick Beverley pitches to LeBron James

LeBron James has decided to test the mighty choppy waters of free agency by opting out of his contract as of yesterday.

A free agency saga that is one for the ages — or what I’d like to call The Decision Part Deux — now has a new tidbit that’s custom-fit and tailor-made for the Bayou City — it has legs and is running out the door!

And it’s a juicy one.

Patrick Beverley, our beloved, hard-nosed guard for the Houston Rockets, has officially made his pitch to have the King’s throne relocated from the exquisite surroundings of South Beach to the classy, budding metropolis of H-Town.

In the eyes of some beholders, it may be a tough sell, but somebody’s got to do it.

In an interview yesterday with veteran funnyman Jay Mohr of Jay Mohr Sports, Mohr’s weekday show on Fox Sports Radio, Beverley didn’t hold back in explaining why the Rockets would be an ideal fit for him.

But it wasn’t your run-of-the-mill interview — it involved some role-playing. Mohr colorfully dramatized the role of James and Beverley…uh…portrayed himself. It played out as a short, lighthearted conversation between the two.

When asked by Mohr what is the Rockets’ biggest selling point over other teams vying for services, this is what Beverley had to say:

“You’ve got to understand, we one of the youngest, hottest teams out there.” Beverley said. “We’ve got two superstars, and a superstar in the making with Chandler (Parsons). That’s an easy question bro. We’ve got one of the best coaches and the smartest GMs in the league as well.”

PBev — I couldn’t agree with you more. The Rockets currently have the tools that are necessary to be competitive but James would be the final piece that will catapult the men in red from pretenders to contenders.

Not to mention the potential windfall the Rockets would get from apparel sales and constant clicking sound of the turnstiles at Toyota Center.

Oh wait, there are no turnstiles, I’ll just have to settle for the incessant beeps of fan’s tickets being scanned.

Close enough.

I’m glad the Rockets are doing an all-out blitz with their players to make validate the reasoning why The King should file a change of address to head to the Lone Star State.

The scenarios that have been brewing over the past couple of days are eerily familiar to last off season’s chase of Dwight Howard heard ’round the world.

Let’s hope the end result involves the Rockets getting their man. 

Then we could associate the word dynasty with this team, a word we have been able to associate with any of our adored sports teams since…never!

Come rescue us LeBron!
