    Cleveland Cavaliers reporter from the Akron Beacon Journal quoted on an ESPN radio show:



    - also says Cavs fans are pessimistic and are kind of prepared for LeBron to leave

    - says there’s no personal relationship between LeBron and Dan Gilbert, it’s strained

    - thinks out of the 4 rumored places, LeBron probably stays in the East and goes to Phil

    Hmmmm.

    @ESPNLosAngeles? I've been pessimistic all day, but this could be simple LA hype. "WOOOO WE'RE GETTING BRON" hype.

    We'll c

    There's so much speculation flying around. I believe none of it.

    Where are you seeing this? Guy is a major Lakers fan tweeting that out and he even keeps re- tweeting that tweet of his.

    I put no stock in this whatsoever.

    The media wants LeBron in a Lakers uniform so bad.

    The exact quote starts at around 4:57 remaining in the podcast. But she is not really saying that she thinks he will stay in Cleveland unless his family really convinces him. She is saying however (in between bashing Houston) that she doesn’t really see him going to the Western Conference.

    But it seems messy dropping this huge comment LeBron said to her months ago at this point in a middle of a radio show, but that’s just my opinion...

    LOL CP3 will let him know how great of a city Houston is, if he hasn't already.

    Trust me, getting CP3 last season was a HUGE step in getting LeBron.

    Yeah but if you were from LA you don't want Bron in Houston which is the no 1 most logical team if he wants to win a ring.

    If he didn't like Houston as a city he wouldn't want his son to play AAU ball here. This is hogwash

    Hearing from his own lips should mean recently, Lebron has not publicly said anything.

    LeBron, Carmelo and Paul had "went as far as to detail individual matchups between that hypothetical Rockets team and the Warriors, surmising that he and the Rockets could take out the Warriors," Begley reported.

    Yeah a lot of people outside of Houston. Don’t like visiting Houston when they come. I told my girl I was from Houston when we first met she was like “I visited Houston once and Hated it.” I think it’s cause it doesn’t have a glamorous feel. You gotta be FROM HOUSTON TO LOVE HOUSTON.

    Hell I'm from here born and raised, and I have to admit Houston is pretty unattractive/unappealing, especially on a surface level. Hot, muggy, flat, and mostly pretty ugly. There's a decent amount of culture and stuff, and the people in the actual city (and some, only some, of the suburbs) are mostly pretty great, but it's super easy for me to understand why anybody just visiting would have a bad impression.

    I mean damn, think of how bad it looks driving in from the airport. I-45 is about the worst introduction you could have to Houston... yuck.

    Lebron has no courage to go west?

    I hope Silver redoes the playoff format. Realistically, Lebron doesnt make a few of the finals he has having to go against Western conference opponents, and at this point its obvious he's opting for the path of least resistance.

    Most cities don't include into city planning an attractive ride from the airport to any given destination. I get what you are saying. Houston isn't attractive on the surface. I felt that way until I was old enough to enjoy everything the city has to offer...which is plenty. If you visit any attractive city in the world for a week or so you will fall in love. Move there for a year and things might change. That has been my experience. This post might not have anything to do with the subject of this thread. Apologies. HTOWN!!
