    Articles like these annoy me. They provide absolutely nothing in terms of new information.

    I guess we are supposed to find out today (or at least the teams are) if the Rockets are invited to meet with LeBron.

    Live in Ohio & been following this closer than ever since Friday -- some credible local (Cleveland and Akron) sources started hearing "something".

    My initial skepticism diminished given who was saying what.

    But now? Skepticism almost non-existent, though this is somewhat reminiscent of 2010.

    Exhibit A:

    Exhibit B

    But why Detroit and not Cleveland?

    Exhibit C

    [​IMG]

    Exhibit D

    [​IMG]

    and finally

    Xzibit

    Why would Lebron want to go back to Cleveland though?

    -Home town
    -Most of his family and friends still live there
    -He still has a home in the Cleveland area
    -He left on bad terms (and took a big PR hit)
    -Miami may be done as a Championship contending team (does anyone really see them beating the Spurs next year, or even being a lock to win over the Clippers or OKC?)
    -Cleveland has a lot of cap room (max salary), solid roster, and lots of assets and picks to further build around him

    I still don't think it's likely, but if he did that's the one place where he wouldn't get a ton of flack from the NBA fans. And if he won a championship in Cleveland the vast majority of Cleveland fans would forgive him for bolting in 2010.
