When LeBron James signed with the Miami Heat, he made sure he had two out clauses in his contract – one after the 2013-14 season and one after the 2014-15 season. It gave the NBA MVP free reign to do as he wished and if things weren’t going as well in Miami as he had hoped/envisioned, it would allow him to bolt.
Thankfully for the Heat, things have gone splendidly and there’s really little reason for James to leave, though it certainly would make for a good movie script if James just so happened to return to his former stomping grounds.
Something that apparently isn’t that outlandish as Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski says that while it’s likely James will remain in South Beach, if he was to leave, his only other destination would be for Cleveland:
“What I’ve been told all year is that it will be Miami or Cleveland.”
Of course, that isn’t exactly earth shattering news as most hoop fans have expected that, however, coming from Wojnarowski, it’s about as solid a confirmation as you can get.
Between James and Dwight Howard, the NBA offseason has turned into a soap opera.
