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.

Will Losing To Spurs Tarnish Lebron's Legacy

It looks like Lebron James could find himself 2-2 in NBA Finals after Sunday night unless some kind of miracle happens. Will a loss tarnish his legacy in people's eyes? The truth is the Spurs are a much better team then the Heat. When I was making predictions about this series I said a team will always beat one man every time.Michael Jordan had to learn this lesson the hard way as well. You cannot pin this loss on King James this time around. Miami is asking James to do everything and that is just not possible.

The Spurs are better in every part of the game right now. They are making the extra pass and playing as a team. Miami looks tired and when you are tired you become a beaten team. I look for San Antonio to end it Sunday, but it will not hurt Lebron's legacy as he is only one man. He did not get the help he needed in the series and that is why they are down 3-1.

Will Carmelo Anthony Make It A Big Four In Miami?

Rumors have been making there way that the Heat are talking about adding Carmelo Anthony to the Big Three in Miami. Is this something that is possible? The truth is it can be done, but the Big Three will have to take pay cuts for it to happen. I do not know if the Big Three want to sacrifice all that money just to win championships. There are other problems with it as well. Let us look at some of them.

One of the biggest problems will be egos. Can Carmelo Anthony work with the Big Three? I just do not see that working out for them. Anthony wants to be the main man and in Miami he will just be part of a group. It sounds good on paper, but in practice it will not work. Fan backlash will be huge as well. Miami is already hated, but it will reach another level altogether.

Other teams will start to put together there own Big Three as well. This is not good for the league as you will have some super teams and ones that will just be average. I think it will water down the product and that is not a good thing at all. In the end, I think this is bad all the way around for basketball.
