It’s been reported throughout the season that LeBron James may return to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The four-time NBA MVP will become an unrestricted free agent this summer and the speculation has been kept under wraps mostly because of his doing. It’s obvious that James has learned his lesson with the “decision,” and is focused on winning his third title in four seasons.
However, that doesn’t stop the speculation on where the best player in the world may play next season.
The Cavaliers have killed any opportunity to bring back James with its lack of stability and leadership from within. The organization has no identity and seems more clueless then ever. Not something James wants to deal with while in the prime of his career.
Losing is nothing new for a city that saw its last title when Lydon B. Johnson was President and Muhammad Ali won his first heavyweight title against Sonny Liston in 1964.
Following an embarrassing loss to an undermanned Los Angeles Lakers team at home, general manager Chris Grant was fired.
Under Grants reign the team had three straight losing seasons and no playoff appearances.
You guys remember that rant from owner Dan Gilbert “we will win a title before LeBron?” Yeah how is that working out for the arrogant and clueless leader of a franchise that is 15 games under .500 and looking at yet another lottery pick.
If you’d like to put things in perspective, James has played in three straight NBA Finals with the Miami Heat, winning two Finals MVP’s while Cleveland has yet to win ONE playoff game. Good call Mr. Gilbert.
The Cavaliers organization has made THIS “decision” easy for LeBron and better be more concerned with keeping Kyrie Irving.
Cleveland Cavaliers record since the departure of LeBron James:
