So witness the latest report from Broussard on the LeBron implications of the Cavs recent re-hire of head coach Mike Brown.
Brown’s presence in Cleveland is not going to deter James from returning, if indeed he decides he wants to go back to the Cavs.

If you happen to ever face Miami Heat star LeBron James in a shooting contest, I think it will be a good idea to make sure that you set the terms in case you lose.
Recently, LeBron challenged teammates Mario Chalmers and Ray Allen to a game of “Around the World” after a Miami Heat practice.
Watch as Ray and Mario pay-up with twenty push-ups after losing to LeBron:
LeBron James supported Jason Collins becoming the first openly gay male athlete in a major American professional sport to reveal his sexuality while still an active player.
“I think it’s very noble on his part," James said. “I think it’s a strong thing to do, and I think as NBA players, we all offer him our support.”
Collins came out in a Sports Illustrated story...
There are some that believe that LeBron James could become the first unanimous MVP this year. If he does he will be the second unanimous award winner for the 2012-13 NBA season. The honor of the first goes to Portland Trail Blazers rookie Damian Lillard.
Officially giving him the award was almost just a formality. The youngster easily had the best season of any rookie in the league...
