It’s NBA Rumor season and this time of year is especially exciting thanks to LeBron James putting himself on the market and offering up his services to anyone who will pay top dollar for them.
While Miami Heat president Pat Riley remains incredibly serious about bringing back LeBron James, he’s becoming a joke around the NBA as executives are using his efforts to convince the superstar forward to return as the butt of their jokes.
NBA execs laughing off idea of Pat Riley bringing “salary cap genius” to LeBron meeting. “He’d better bring Jesus,” says one.

Pat Riley is a hustler though, so if it takes Jesus to bring back LeBron James then that’s what Riley might pursue. But bringing back Jesus and bringing back LeBron may end up being a task one int he same, as it’s starting to look like South Beach will be down a superstar when the NBA season kicks off next season.
There’s hope that LeBron will be back in Miami next season but returning to Cleveland has become more and more of a good idea and it might be the decision he ends up arriving at when it comes time to decide his NBA future.
