LeBron James rumors: LeBron to announce decision between Heat and Cavs on website


All eyes in the NBA world right now are locked in on LeBron James and whether or not he will return to the Miami Heat or head back home to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers, the team that he left four years ago via his announcement on national television.

That last part really irked a lot of people. When LeBron went in front of the entire world for “The Decision” and spurned the Cavaliers for the Heat, the controversy surrounding that was tremendous.

Because of that, a lot of people are wondering how he will go about announcing his free agency decision this time around, however folks shouldn’t worry about a repeat performance of four years ago.

According to Chris Sheridan, instead of all the national hoopla, James will instead just announce his intentions on his official website.

A plugged-in source tells me there is a 90 percent chance that LeBron James will return to the Cleveland Cavaliers, and it will be announced on www.lebronjames.com if it happens.

Well that will hopefully calm down some of the people that thought there would be another side show, although they will more than likely find something to complain about regardless.

As of right now, James is in Las Vegas where he will have a meeting with Heat president Pat Riley, although that meeting could turn out to just be James thanking Riley for everything he’s done for him the last four years before he heads back to Cleveland.

    C*L*E*V*E*L*A*N*D – A*K*R*O*N , O*H*I*O … I got one thing to say…
    Get Yo’ Popcorn Ready!!

  • Real M-Fing talk !!!

    Well this confirms it…. “if this rumor is true about where Lebron is announcing it and the teams involved” Lebron is going back to Cleveland, which is the right move… too often people claim athletes are stupid which is rarely the case, yes they do stupid things, but stupidity is a totally different matter…. Lebron would have cement blocks in his head to nationally spurn Cleveland once again, and leading up to this decision Lebron clearly involved Cleveland and why would he involve Cleveland if he had no intentions on returning home…. Doing cleveland this way would cut him off from Ohio forever… i think Wade made this decision very easy for Lebron based on his finals, and only an idiots refer to them as the “big 3″ and believe Wade will improve going forward, so it’s literally Lebron, Bosh and no one else and Lebron didn’t fly south the play with a giant lizard… People also need to stop giving riley any credit in 4 years Lebron was there, WHAT DID PAT RILEY do to better the team???… nothing… some will say Allen but he would not have went to Miami if not for James the players form the the main group while Spoelstra and Riley was along for the ride… 4 chances at a ring with the best player in the game and Erik won 2 that all you need to know about that guy.

    Finally lebron needs to get another vet like Pau Gasol if only to keep him away from the Spurs or thunder until Kevin love becomes a free agent

    Still not convinced that LeBron wants to get out of Miami. Sheridan is exactly right, LeBron cares very much about his legacy. Leaving Miami after getting rocked in the Finals by SA is not a smart way to maintain your legacy. This just seems like the continuation of all the speculation. The SH blog has a great piece right now about all of this with LeBron, Melo and Bosh, def worth a read now: http://straighthoops.com/enough_already.html

    He may be forced to leave Miami. If Bosh takes the money in Houston, LeBron will be worse off with a crippled Wade to drag up and down the court.

      Bosh has already told Houston he wants to play in Miami so long as LeBron is there.
