Another year. Another decision.
LeBron James is really bigger than basketball, especially in the NBA. The money he generates, the names he attracts and not to mention he could hoop pretty good too.
Every team wants LeBron. If the King signs a long year contract with your team, you’re damn-near guaranteed two things. 1) A shot at the NBA Championship. 2) A packed house every night [whether they’re there to boo him or cheer him on]. That equates to money for the owner. You don’t come across these type of athletes often which makes the LeBron sweepstakes that much more important.
When speculation started about Chris Bosh, Dwayne Wade, and LeBron James opting out of their contracts with Miami, the frenzy started. You seen teams start making moves to clear cap room space. You seen fans for teams with playful but serious campaigns. All for the King.
The King has decided to return to where it all started for him though. Cleveland. Next year, LeBron James will be a Cleveland Cavalier…again. And Cleveland is accepting him with open arms.
But with LeBron announcing his decision keep your eyes open for the rest of the league building their teams with unexpected moves, and be looking out for other big name players to announce their next move as well.
