    Looks like Cleveland can be eliminated from contention for Lebron then.

    makes sense lebron back to cleveland. He suddenly realized he can carry any eastern conference team to the finals every year. might as well try to make good on that promise years ago.

    Broussard and Rich Paul are boys. Broussard is the go to for LeBron.

    ESPN NBA insiders keep throwing crap on the wall hoping something sticks.:grin: The are covering all the bases with Lebron and Melo. I just can't wait for July 10th when all this drama will finally end. I just hope the Rockets can fill out their roster and be ready to compete for a title next season.

    @WojYahooNBA: In pursuit of max slot for LeBron James, Cavs searching for team to take Nets' Marcus Thornton in deal to unload Jarrett Jack, sources say.

    Thanks for the intel. If it's what we think it is that is great. Just curious who else could Cleveland sign.

    Think LeBron will go back to wearing 23 or stick with 6?

    You would imagine that Cleveland has something else lined up to convince Lebron to come. Must be a Wiggins package for Love. Not sure exactly how the trade would be able to work.

    But, Minnesota could receive the last 2 overall #1 picks for Love...

    ok guys I've been reporting on this for awhile now, from cle. Insiders they been acting lie it was a done deal.

    - Lebrons wife is pregnant and misses her family in cle.
    - lebrons been all over ig keep talking about his friends in cle. How he wish he wa out there etc
    -Dan plane fwas tracked today to FL. Today, BIG Z was on it, no one can confirm of Dan was
    - lebron wants his sons in school out there and be raised out there like he was
    - they have more talent than heat now IRVING locked in to max YOUNG $18
    - they may trade wiggins + fillers for love
    - love said on draft night if lebron goes to cle. He would resign if traded there
    - pat hasn't been having options hasn't got anything done, lebron gave him time

    I don't remember completely. Wasn't Lebron one of the last FAs to decide where he was going in 2010? I remember for sure Bosh and Wade had already made their commitments. Just curious because I'm trying to develop my own mental timeline for my own sanity!

    If I'm Cleveland, I'd try to keep Wiggins out of the deal. Waiters, Thompson, Bennett, 2015 1st (lower of Cavs/Bulls), 2017 1st.

    Wow, if Kyrie can stay healthy AND they get Love that is a very good team.

    Is there any way they can keep Wiggins too?
