We’ve been hearing about LeBron James leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers after the season since before the start of the NBA calendar and they haven’t been going away. He’s been speculated to be going to the Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks, Philadelphia 76ers and most recently, the Golden State Warriors.
According to reports, King James would have been willing to sit down with Dub Nation if they freed up a max contract for him to run with Kevin Durant and Steph Curry.
Of course, this would mean that they would have to get rid of and strip the rest of the team of its roster to make room. Would this actually happen? Hell no.
LBJ addressed the rumors with the media today, saying that the story is nonsense and unless the news is coming from his mouth, it isn’t true. He’s focused on his team now and what they’re trying to accomplish and these off-court distractions are taking away from what they’re trying to do, which is make it back to the NBA Finals. He emphasized how much he always handles his free agency situation when the time comes and right now is not that time.
He doesn’t care if his kids said it, his best friend said it or whoever else. These stories are false and he sounded frustrated talking about it.
He’s definitely leaving Cleveland at the end of the season, right?
