    I tend to agree with Torocan here ^

    main points

    1. wants to win

    2. home

    3. LeBron is a very sensitive and he knows his image will take a HUGE hit if he goes anywhere other than Cleveland or Miami. Put yourself in his shoes...you can't win in Cleveland, you got Miami, you win some, you lose some and now that you can't win you jump ship to another contender?

    "FYI... Gilbert's plane originally supposed to land at FLL. Plane diverted to FXE. Likely, to avoid all media. No one saw who was on board."

    Same type of information that was popping up with Dwight to Houston last year is popping up with LeBron to Cleveland, I really hope he goes back.

    Lebron going back to Cleveland seems more and more likely. I really hope Rockets meet him to try to get him to join Rockets.

    One of the biggest problems with this is Cleveland does not seem to have quality ownership and management. I don't claim to know the complete history of their GM but he does not seem to inspire a whole lot of confidence (Bennett, Deng trade, rumored Hayward offer). LeBron should know as well as anyone how important that is for roster management and creating or keeping a championship window open.

    If LeBron leaves that gives us a shot for Bosh.
    Maybe even for Wade for a massive, massive paycut MLE level. ;)

    Even if he goes to Cleveland, it's good news for us. Cavs may very well flip Wiggins/etc. for Love, but we would then be in driver seat for Bosh. Option #4 > Nothing.

    Take it for what this is worth. I know of a girl who is very close friends with Lebron. She lives in Miami. She was in Cleveland over the break. She just posted a facebook status saying

    "It will be a sad, sad day for the 305 tomorrow." — feeling depressed.


    This may be the dumbest post of all time or the best. haha.

    Lebron going back to Cleveland would actually restore my respect for him. Him and Westbrook are my least favorite players but my sole hatred would be aimed towards Westbrook if Lebron goes back to the Cavs.

    Lebron to Cleveland might be the best situation for the rockets (besides Lebron signing with the rockets). We would have a legit shot at Bosh.
