Maybe LeBron James shouldn’t be such a villain to Knicks fans after all. Apparently, he was the one who planted the idea of playing for the Knicks in Carmelo Anthony ‘s head. That occurred in July when James was talking a little smack at the New York wedding of the Nuggets star. “If you want any chance against us in Miami , you’d better team up with in New York,” James told Anthony, who relayed the conversation this month in an interview with SI.com. Shortly after that, Hornets point guard Chris Paul grabbed a glass of champagne and, to Anthony and Stoudemire, toasted the formation of “our own Big Three” with the Knicks. Anthony and Paul have since downplayed the moment as joking around, but by the end of the summer both had begun to employ exit strategies with their teams.

Inception on Melo?

How did Lebron got Leonardo DiCaprio to go into Melo's dreams to plant the idea to go to the Knicks?

Not sure, but he probably needed Amar'e, D'Antoni, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt to do it. And Lebron himself probably watched them do it.

No....Lebron didn't watch....it was Bosh who was standing around watching everybody do something. Bosh is like the guy driving the car in Inception...essentially tagging along for the ride while everybody did the real work....you know...kind of like what he's doing now with the Heat. :laugh:
