NFL Dropped The Ball With Ray Rice Suspension

The NFL had a chance to make a stand against domestic violence and they fumbled it away on the goal line. Ray Rice committed domestic violence and that is something that cannot be tolerated by the NFL or even the Baltimore Ravens. The punishment that the NFL came up with was a two game suspension. You got to be kidding me. That is a slap on the wrist and Ray Rice should feel fortunate that is all he got.

Now his coach or even the Baltimore Ravens could also make a stand, but do not look for that to happen. In fact, I bet the Ravens are happy with the punishment as he will only miss two games when he could have missed alot more. I guess the NFL does not consider domestic violence a serious offense, especially when you get four games for PED's. It's a shame that the NFL did not step up and do the right thing, but this really should not surprise anyone that's for sure.

Can Cleveland Learn From Past Mistakes?

The Cleveland Cavaliers have really struggled since The Decision, but now that could be a thing of the past with Lebron James coming back to the Cavaliers. The Cavaliers made a lot of mistakes the first go around with James and it's starting to look like they could be making the same mistakes the second tour of duty with James. Early in his career James was given anything he wanted and that was the Cavaliers downfall.

Now we are on the second go around and it looks like James is getting everything he wants once again. James wanted Mike Miller on the team and other players he liked could be next in line. Now don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with adding pieces to your team, but you can't let James make these kind of decisions.

Many people are on the bandwagon when it comes to getting Kevin Love to Cleveland. I will admit I am not one of those people. Love is a very good player, but to give up Wiggins and others to get him is just not worth it in my opinion. I hope the Cavaliers are not repeating mistakes from the past, but it seems they might be.

King James Goes Back To Cleveland To Assume His Throne

Lebron James left Cleveland on not so friendly terms, but that does not mean you cannot ever go back home. James decided that he missed Northeast Ohio too much and came back to where it all started for him. Some people may not understand his decision or why he did what he did. For people such as this writer I know how he feels. Nothing feels better hen going home and being around the people you grew up with and know.

Being home is something special for James. Many people will never understand that and that is okay. Yes, Lebron James wants to win a championship in Cleveland, but if he does not that is okay as well. He is doing this on his own terms, which many people never get to do. Lebron James came back to his roots and there is not wrong with that at all. For me coming home was really the only choice he could make.

Cavs owner Dan Gilbert and James both made mistakes, but all will be forgotten if James delivers an NBA championship to Cavalier fans. They are starved for a winner and King James will assume to throne and try to bring them one.

Will King James Ever Return To His Throne In Cleveland?

Lebron James started his career in Cleveland and many think that is where he will end it as well. I also am one of those people, but it isn't happening as soon as people think if you ask me. Cavalier fans would love to see King James resign with the Cleveland Cavaliers, but I think it will happen in a couple of years and here is why. The first thing is no matter where he goes he will not sign a long term deal. If he does he will have a opt out clause built in it.

King James has unfinished business in Cleveland and he knows it. James will wait for the Cavaliers to get a few more pieces in place before he heads back. I see it in two to three years. He will still have a lot left in the tank and it will give him a chance to redeem himself in Cleveland. No matter what anyone tells you he did not like how it ended in Cleveland. If he can go back to the Cavaliers and win a title his career will be complete. If fans can wait a few more years I think they could have something special in Cleveland again. Only time will tell if I am right, but it would be a great way to end his career on top with his original team.

King James Can Only Leave Miami For Cleveland

Don't think for one minute Lebron James isn't seeing what is happening. Most people do not realize how smart James really happens to be. James by now probably has heard Pat Riley's speech and I can't think he is really happy with it. King James knows that the only place he could leave Miami for would be Cleveland thanks to Pat Riley.

If James would leave Miami for another contender people would say he is just chasing championships and not a guy who can stick it out when it gets tough. Now James can really only leave Miami for the Cavaliers. It was a very nice ploy by Pat Riley. Painting James into a corner may be a good thing, but it could also backfire on Riley as well. I really do think James will just stay with Miami in the end as tha is the only logical choice King James has right now.

Lebron James Has limited Choices If He Wants To Win Championships

Most people think Lebron James has many opportunities to go anywhere he wants and win championships, but that is really not the case. There are only a handful of teams that have the talent to win, but most cannot give him max money. This really leaves Lebron James with limited options. WHat will Lebron do?

In the end I think James will stay with Miami and not opt out unless Wade and Bosh does as well. James is not happy with the Heat for not upgrading the roster during the season and it cost him a chance to repeat and make his mark in history. King James loves the history of the game and wanted to be a part of it. He will not opt out of what is owed him especially if the Heat will not add some quality players to the roster.

You can not blame James as he carried the team all year long and the playoffs as well. He has a lot of pull right now because of his performance this past season. I look for him to remain with the Heat, but it will be interesting to see how this all works out.

Pat Riley Is Pissed, But Who Really Cares

Pat Riley went to the podium to vent like he seems to do when he is not happy about something. I guess you cannot blame him. He was hoping to win another NBA Championship, but that did not work out the way he had hoped. The one thing Riley has always hated is when people question him about things. Over the years he has always been that way. People say they never read what is written or listen to what is said, but that is just not true. If that is true we would have never seen Pat Riley today.

What has Mr. Riley is such a bad mood was simple people questioning what he was going to do since the Heat lost to the Spurs. Riley has always been a guy about winning, so it comes as no surprise that he will retool the Heat again. He was to four straight Finals and losing two never sits well with him. I look for Miami to be better in the upcoming season no matter who puts on the uniform. Thats just how Pat Riley  does things as Heat's president.
