Here we go again. Are you serious?
It was only two years ago when NBA All-star LeBron James had chosen to take his talents to South Beach. During that time, it felt like nothing in the NBA was more important. LeBron James was in the middle of an NBA tornado and it was quickly sweeping throughout every state.
After LeBron James had made his decision, many fans heavily disliked the outcome. Die-hard supporters in Cleveland were burning his jersey, New Yorkers who preferred that James should’ve went to the Knicks were angry, and in terms of the Nets, well… let’s just say that everyone knew James wasn’t going to New Jersey. Sorry Nets fans.
With that being said, despite receiving a tremendous amount of unfavorable support, James brushed off all the negative energy, put on a Miami Heat jersey, and stepped on the court with two more NBA stars in Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh [All-Star who also joined the Heat]. This amazing trio quickly became known as the “Big Three.”
An abundant amount of attention was brought back to Miami due to the signing of LeBron James. Unfortunately, this all might change at the end of the 2013-14 NBA season. What? You heard it right, James is strongly contemplating about opting out of his six-year/$110.1 million dollar deal with the Miami Heat.
According to Fox Sports Ohio and writer Sam Amico, LeBron James will seriously abandon his multi-year contract if… you ready for this? If Pat Riley remains to be Miami Heat’s team president and continues to assume this role by the end of the 2014 season. In the instance that this is the scenario, James will be packing his bags and taking his talents to a different destination.
Wait, there’s MORE!
If LeBron James was to indeed enter free agency once again, sources close to this matter inform the media that the “King” would go back to Cleveland where it all began. Crazy huh?
Believe it or not, this might just be something LeBron James is actually thinking about. There were rumors at the end of last season that Pat Riley and LeBron James were not seeing eye-to-eye. There were also numerous reports that James didn’t like the Miami Heat head coach, Erik Spoelstra. Now, if there was one thing that I would definitely put my money on, it’s LeBron’s lack of confidence in his head coach. Say what you will, but I certainly wouldn’t be surprised if LeBron James headed out of Miami.
Currently, the Miami Heat find themselves sitting on top of the Southeast division with a 13-5 record, second best in the Eastern Conference. LeBron James is playing all-world posting 29.1 points per game, 8.0 rebounds, and 7.1 assists. The guy is performing at a very high level and is nearly averaging a triple-double early in the season.
Something to note: LeBron James’ statistics rose dramatically ever since Dwyane Wade got injured. Which begs the question, “Does LeBron James need Dwyane Wade?” By no means am I trying to divide the team, but given Miami Heat’s strong record without Wade, it’s actually not a bad question to ask.
What do you guys think about LeBron James opting out? Get crazy and let me know how you feel!
