    Watch how Lebron finds a way to blame management, the owner, Kyrie and the media forgiving him, saying it's smart, accepting his explanation..laughable! Lebron is a pussy and selfish, just does whatever he wants, creates teams and then after he sees no option to continue, he will just run to another city and do the same. Guess Pat Riley was not such a fool after all, he basically saw Lebron for who he was and didn't want that ego maniac in town anymore.

    Ya, it was Riley who didn't want James back, that's exactly what happened! Why compete for titles when you can be eastern conference trash.

    LOL. The points are arguably valid until the recreationist history - Riley wanted to LeBron to stay in Miami. They had gone to 4 championships in a row, while winning two, and LeBron was offered the max to stay. It was Wade that Riley later decided to cut ties with for the good of the future by not showing him the money.

    LeBron did what he promised and that was to bring a championship to Cleveland and im sure that Cavs fans wouldn't mind leaving.

    If true, they probably could have had Melo easy as well. Also since it was before Knight got injured and teams used up all their cap space...
    CLE - Melo (NYK) + Bledsoe (PHO) + George (IND)
    PHO - Irving (CLE) + Shumpert (CLE)
    NYK - Knight (PHO) + Osman (CLE) + Frye (CLE) + future 1st from CLE (2018 or 2019)
    IND - 4th overall (via PHO) + JR Smith (CLE)

    Bledsoe - George - Bron - Melo - Love = starters
    Rose - Korver - Green - Thompson - Tavares = bench

    Ah well.... woulda.shoulda.coulda

    Meh. Kyrie leaving because he doesn't want to be second banana to LeBron, is LeBron's fault...how, exactly? Kyrie knowing he'll forever be the #2 guy on a LeBron-led team, is LeBron's fault...how, exactly?

    LeBron has set out to do what he wanted to do, which is to bring Cleveland a title. And I think you can argue that Cleveland has the best shot of beating GSW in the playoffs, as they'll pretty much be rested by the time the Finals start. I still don't think they'll have any powerful challengers in the East, this year, so while GSW goes through the stacked West, LeBron will chill through the East.

    If you think a job situation is going downhill, why would you want to stay around for the chaos? Wouldn't you want to jump to a better situation?

    Lebron got his boys paid, seriously hampering the GM to make moves. Then constantly bitches about not having the best players. He got the GM fired and now is running away. Good for Kyrie he's leaving a sinking ship early, but make no mistake: Lebron brought the Cavs a trophy, but he also is going to leave them very restricted in making the team better when he leaves again.

    Can see Bron choosing the Wolves, Raptors, or Rockets.

    Maybe it's just me, and I know there are a ton of rumors that he is going to leave already, but this seems to me like a classic example of an "insider" trying to make an "inside" prediction.

    If he leaves "see! I told you first"

    If he stays "well he was 100% going to leave but the relationship was repaired during this season"

    Yes, that was indeed Sheridan. I always felt his source was on the LeBron's wife side on that Miami to Cleveland thing.

    In this case, I think Sheridan is spitballing. Too difficult to examine the NBA landscape now and where it will be at the end of the season. A lot can happen. There can be domino effects.
