Was the Mike Brown rehiring made to bring back LeBron James?
It’s been three long years for Cleveland Cavalier fans as they have been tormented with watching LeBron James morph into game’s best player. After two straight Finals appearances for the Miami Heat, LeBron has them poised to make a third straight return. So what does the return of old head coach, Mike Brown have to do with LeBron James? Well many think this is the first step for a possible LeBron James return to Cleveland after next season when he can opt out of his current deal with the Miami Heat.
According to Jan Hubbard of Sheridan Hoops:
But now Brown has been brought back to Cleveland and there was rampant speculation that one reason would be his attractiveness to – pause to roll your eyes here – LeBron James, who can opt out of his Miami contract after next season.
But that’s where the other part of the déjà vu occurs. It wouldn’t qualify as history repeating itself – perhaps more like history parodying itself.
