    If LeBron was able to leave Cleveland the way that he did, creating bad blood amongst his teammates, ownership and the rest of the country (outside of southern Florida), I doubt the prospect of upsetting D-Whistle and Pat Riley will make him flinch.

    Lebron brings Bosh with him and wins another couple rings!

    Everyone should know by now to not trust or believe anything Lebron says or does. Who knows what the hell he might do? Any signs or signals from him can't be trusted either.

    Surely we can trust the media reporting it.

    Here is my take on Lebron's possible return:

    First Lebron knows he screwed up. Not so much that he left, that is his right, but the way he left us. He realizes that it is a big sore point on an otherwise spectacular career. I think also that the grass hasn't been so much greener on the other side and he misses the fans here compared to the tepid Miami fans. He misses his home and he's probably had his fill of Miami. As his priorities shift to his family and kids, he realizes this is the best place to play out the rest of the career.

    As for how Cavs fans and ownership should respond, it is simple, you take him back. Here is a newsflash, Lebron is a really, really good player, perhaps only second to Michael Jordan in the last 30 years. You have to have a very good reason to turn someone like that down. Just that he offended you isn't enough. In a business, if you have a chance to hire a legendary salesman who can double your businesses profits and sales, you hire that guy no matter what, even if he is the biggest asshole in the world. The same is true in this case.

    In a way Lebron winning a championship here would be a great way to break Cleveland's sports curse. It would be a great story about a city forgiving a hometown hero with the hero redeeming himself. It would be an incredible notch to Lebron's legacy and he would go from being a hated villain to city savior. He would go down as a legend in this area for decades to come, with people still talking about him 50 years from now like we do with Jim Brown.

    However to scorn Lebron and keep him from coming here, that my friends is a great way to keep the Cleveland curse going. People who can't forgive don't deserve to win a championship.

    Ehh, if he's smart he'll opt-out and get another 5 year max deal(or 6 if he stays with Miami). He'll be 10 seasons in at that point, and he probably will be dominant for at least two or three more, but things always have the possibility of going sour in the NBA very quickly. Hell two more full seasons (including this year) and two more playoff runs for Wade is a big part of the reason this could even happen in the first place.

    As for him coming back, I never thought it would be possible, but things do seem to be heading towards a perfect environment/set-up for something insane like that to happen. How ironic would it be for LeBron in 2014 to be the biggest free agent that Cleveland can ever land? I hate and love the possibility at the same time. He's just too good of a fit with Kyrie to not at least think about the possiblities.

    I would rather sign Wade. His job would be to take out the best players on everyone elses team (God knows he has enough practice at that). That way by the time we get to the playoffs we are playing against glorified D-Leaguers. Victory!

    So let's imagine James and Gilbert did all this intentionally, just so cavs get good picks, before james get back. Did they pick the right players to surround James with ?
    Kobe's record without Shaq and Gasol is 121-125 and playoff record is 4-8
    Jordan without Pippen was 182-228 and 1-9 in the playoffs

    Is it a coincidence we have avoided small forwards like the plague?

    Yup, that's what i stated also.

    No coincidence that we selected a 6th man SG from Syracuse over a SF Barnes.
