— Well, at least we got a tweet out of LeBron James.

With the Summer of LeBron trudging along with no break in sight, the NBA’s most prized free agent opened a Twitter account and posted his first message on the social networking site. While he provided no information about his future plans, at least he offered something as the NBA awaits the decision on where he’ll play next.


“Hello World, the Real King James is in the Building,” said the tweet on the kingjames feed, which by


5 p.m. CDT had more than 128,000 followers.


James’ publicist, Keith Estabrook, confirmed the superstar’s entrance to Twitter, a place where fellow free agents Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh often post details about their public lives off the floor.


James’ plans still are a closely guarded secret. He visited with six teams—the Nets, Knicks, Heat, Clippers, Cavaliers and Bulls—last week at his business offices in downtown Cleveland and may have already made up his mind. But until he gives word, other teams are positioning themselves to make a run at the 6-foot-8, 260-pound All-Star—or Bosh or Wade, or maybe a combination.


There have been various reports that Toronto was working on a sign-and-trade deal with Cleveland for Bosh, and that James is trying to convince him to join the Cavaliers.
