We’ve chased a plane from Cleveland to Miami, we’ve investigated color schemes on LeBron James’ website and we’ve looked into rumors that Nike is planning to put up LeBron-related billboards in Cleveland.
But we may have found our craziest LeBron rumor yet.
ESPN’s Brian Windhorst is looking for a house in Cleveland, according to the New York Daily News’ Frank Isola.
Why does this matter?
Well, Windhorst’s reporting career has been primarily tied to James. He went to the same high school James did and covered LeBron during his St. Vincent-St. Mary days. Windhorst began covering the Cavaliers at the Cleveland Plain-Dealer in 2003, when James was drafted. In 2010, after LeBron announced he was leaving the Cavs and heading to the Heat, Windhorst left the Plain Dealer for ESPN to cover, you guessed it, the Heat.
Now, this is just one report and Windhorst hasn’t said anything about looking for Cleveland houses. Also, even if Windhorst is house hunting in Cleveland, it doesn’t mean that James is definitely heading back to the Cavs, just that the reporter is preparing for the possibility.
Having said all of that, this is just another rumor that would seem to indicate LeBron is leaning towards returning to Cleveland. The rumor might be absurd, but it’s worth paying attention too.
