Double K’s Take: The LeBron James situation…

The LeBron James Situation…


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              So after all the hub bub and a very long wait the prodigal son is returning to Cleveland. That’s right something that I thought was never going to happen has become fact. This offseason started out with the inevitable with Carmelo Anthony opting out of his contract In New York. A little south of the Big Apple down in Miami the King made his decision to opt out of his contract with the defending Eastern Conference Champions. Now when Bosh and Wade opted out of their contracts I thought for sure that this was all part of the master plan. That LeBron and his buddies had planned this all out to save Miami some money under the cap to allow them to go after some of the top free agents that were available this summer…


                                                                                                                                                That is not what turned out to be; once again the decision was the focus of everything that I saw on ESPN. Where was LeBron going to go? (The whole time I thought for sure he was resigning maybe even taking a pay cut to bring them more help to the Heat!!) Who would follow him back to Miami or any other destination he went to? Then there were the rumors that the Cavaliers had made enough moves to have the cap space to bring him home!! (Still didn’t think it was going to happen!). Then the fateful day came and the announcement was made “LeBron James was going home, he was going back to Cleveland” (What!?!) The more disturbing part was the reaction of the Cleveland fans that a little over a year ago were still hoping that he would choke on those darn title rings he won in Miami. They somehow miraculously forgave him for everything and were ready to accept him home as the prodigal man!!...


                                                                                                                                                Now with that story told let’s look at the Cavaliers moving forward. There are rumors that the team can get all star forward Kevin Love away from the T’Wolves and that is a very scary thought. That combination of players would result in Cleveland being an instant contender for the Eastern Conference crown with the Bulls who just added former Lakers PF Pau Gasol to replace Carlo Boozer who they will most likely amnesty for salary cap reasons. Let’s not jump the gun though that trade has not been made and the roster as constituted is really young and really talented but I don’t know if they are truly ready for where LeBron can take them. I know that they are the “Vegas Favorites” to win the title in 2014-15 seasons. I personally don’t like this because I don’t have as much faith in what this young roster can do. I definitely think that this team has a lot of potential but are they championship ready? This guy here says that you have to wait for things to really be good and LeBron put them on a two year clock that might expire after a year if the King isn’t happy. I think that he is poised for a long stay in Cleveland I just don’t know how many titles are in the city with him…
