Q-Tip: Lebron James Will Own Part of Cleveland Cavaliers and Kevin Durant May Come To The Knicks

(AllHipHop News) Q-Tip may have found a new career as a sports journalist. Less than two hours after Lebron James announced his return to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Q-Tip claimed that James will own part of the Cavaliers as a condition of his new deal.

On July 3rd, reports surfaced that Lebron James’ agent Rich Paul met with the Cavaliers, Dallas Mavericks, Phoenix Suns and the Houston Rockets. Less than a day later, Q-Tip claimed on his personal Twitter account that James was returning to the Cavs:

Following James’ announcement of his return to the Cavs, The Abstract dug up more information from his “sources”. Q-Tip  flexed his clairvoyant muscle and claimed that James’ return was contingent on the superstar having a future ownership stake in the team:

Last month, Phil Jackson hired Derek Fisher as the New York Knicks’ head coach, weeks after Fisher ended his final season with the Oklahoma City Thunder. As a devoted New York Knicks fan, Q-Tip speculated on Carmelo Anthony’s impending free agency decision and how the Knicks’ newest coach could help the team sign the NBA’s reigning MVP:

Kevin Durant is under contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder until the end of the 2015-2016 season after signing a five year extension back in July 2010.

    Since when have players been able to own any portion of a team while playing? Everybody is a sport agent today. Go make some beats or finish up that album with Busta lol.

    • therealwayno

      Well he did say “eventually” and “6 – 8 years.” Bron would be between 35 and 37 so it makes logical sense.

      • Jared

        I just question how that could be put on paper I guess.

      • lando

        Well somebody bout to get investigated and they can thank Q-Tip.

    • El Dogga


      They already finished up “The Abstract and The Dragon” – disappointing!

      • Jared

        I was feeling the single but that’s all I heard lol

      • El Dogga

        I was too….that’s why I was disappointed!

    • Reazonero

      If he is given a percentage of the team, then he would have to play for them exclusively until he retires. It would be a conflict of interest for him to have a piece of Cleveland and play for another team. Similar to Jay Z’s situation with Brooklyn and why he had to sell his stake.

      • Jared

        I feel you I just don’t see how that can be put on paper while he’s a player

      • I_AM_Houston

        I would need that. Hes got him a few rings and long as he is there players will be interested. Why not insure the future forever

    • ZUBU

      Bro you are right in the sense that a player can’t own and play for a team. Jordan had ownership in the Wiz then he went to play and had to transfer ownership to someone, I think his wife. Then the Wiz fukkked Jordan.
      Bron will prolly get future ownership rights, but they Cavs may fulkkk him cause according to league rules they can’t put that deal in place now. So if it is true Q-Tip talking too much right now. Mad love for Tip though……..

      • Jared

        no doubt

      • Ipullcards


    • Michael Murray

      it says he will in about 6-8 years. So unless he plans on retiring within that time, there’s noway he can own any percentage of the team. The NBA won’t allow that

    Tip looking for a new career?

  • The Legendary Troll

    Durant definitely needs to move around. The Thunder is not doing his career justice at all

    • Clondyke Classic

      How is that? The nigga only 25 and he already been to the finals. History shows great players like that don’t usually win the chip til after 27.

  • Low Gin

    idk if durant would leave OKC but it’d make my day to see him as a knick

  • Markus

    Lebron owning part of the team would be great for his brand. Sure he’s probably interested in that after basketball for him is over playing wise. As far as Durant, the problem is he plays with a ball hog. Westbrook is not a point guard and because he plays like he’s alone on the court sometimes, he and Durant will not win as long as they play on the same team.

    • Boss

      Real shit if he stay with Westbrook he not getting no rings that nigga is a cancer KD need to leave if he can’t get Westbrook to leave first KD to the Knicks would be good but I don’t see it

  • Ipullcards

    Sounds on point. A little bit of a stretch with kd coming. But hey if bron can head back to Cleveland than KD & Carmelo can retire as Knicks!

  • I_AM_Houston

    what if the thunder traded westbrook for rondo?

  • Clondyke Classic

    Q tip dreaming like a muhfucca. KD is a loyal nigga he aint goin nowhere. Westbrook may leave tho

  • The_Good_Life

    Kd loves ny, he’s from dc. Got legendary games at the rucker plus the move would catapult him to mega stardom. Players would follow him too.

  • Papi Peligro

    KD just said he’s never leaving OKC.

    • ZUBU

      Naw Bro, KD said he is loyal (reason why he signed the 5 year extension in 2010 without the opt-out clause), and likes OKC but he never said he would not leave. NY whould be nice for KD, and like other folks have mentioned Westbrook thinks he is the team *star* smh…….

      • $18592567

        leave Westbrook alone.lol

  • Sean Power

    why is this news ? ESPN has reporting his going back ….. Charlamagne tweeted his going back 2 year so what KD is not going the knicks, new york and LA things everyone is coming to them it not happening the knicks are over rated franchise

    • Super_Hero

      Reading your comment, English is overrated.

    KD isn’t coming to the Knicks. He got all sensitive about that headline in the OKC newspaper during the playoffs. NY sports writers would destroy him if he’s tender like that.

  • St7007

    KD coming back home to DC.
