    I think it would look bad on his image if he went back though, he would be known for how many times he swapped teams. Unless he won like 2 more titles w/Cleveland. That's why I really think he's staying he doesn't want to be looked bad upon.

    @WojYahooNBA: Within Heat, still confidence they'll keep LeBron James. They know difference between his agent's agenda, and James' strong mind of his own.

    One report I've read that connects a lot of dots is Woj's report about the push to get LeBron back to Cleveland. Talking to people around the Heat, there was confidence LeBron was coming back but they couldn't account what the people closest to him would be telling him.

    Bosh stuff, talking to people close to Chris, I don't know where the idea is coming from he's looking to leave. If LeBron leaves, would Chris look elsewhere? Of course he'd explore his options. It's your job as an agent to explore what's out there. To say Chris is the fulcrum of this...no. If LeBron leaves, Chris will look elsewhere but nothing I've heard about Chris...this started a week ago that Chris agreed to terms for 11 million. He was looking for something starting at $15 and willing to bend a little. Nothing I've heard has changed on that. You have a network with 4 guys reporting 4 different guys. Guys close to LeBron have been saying he's staying, up until yesterday. I don't know what that means. If what Woj is reporting that Paul is trying to get him back to Cleveland, I have a feeling I know who his source is, then I believe that report.

    The idea the Heat would have $10-12 million to spend, again, not true.

    The Yahoo report today, that connects dots for me I've had trouble connecting.

    Exactly what I thought when I heard this crap last night. Nothing but made up speculation fueling a 24 hour news cycle.

    McRoberts doesn't make much sense to me. He's repetitive on a roster with Lebron and Bosh. Good for the bench, but he doesnt fill their voids of a playmaker and rim protector.

    Nor does he help limit Wade's minutes at all. If I'm Lebron, looking at a rookie pooping his bed in summer league, plus Josh McRoberts... I'm not very impressed so far. I know he likes Napier, but the rookie will only help so much, especially since point guards start so, so slowly in the NBA (usually).

    The fact that lebron or his agent (whoever) invited dallas, phoenix, and la but not houston makes me dislike him that much more. The rockets let it be known he was their first target and he didnt even invite them to speak to him personally but he invited the suns...the mavs....and the lakers.

    **** him.
