June 20, 2013 Updates

The late James Gandolfini twice made offers to LeBron James to join the Knicks that that world's best player refused. Gandolfini, who died of an apparent heart attack on Wednesday while vacationing in Italy, was recruited by the Knicks to appear in a video that the club presented to LeBron when they visited the free agent in July 2010. In the video, the Sopranos stars, Gandolfini and Edie Falco, reprised their roles as New Jersey's favorite mafia couple and explained to James why signing a free agent contract with the Knicks was in his best interests.
