The Miami Herald briefly addressed the reports that LeBron James is considering a return to Cleveland. The Hearald's blog quoted a close associate of King James' saying LeBron's Ohio-based agent won't influence his 2014 decision. From the Herald:
“LeBron is his own man, and Rich [Paul] only cares about what LeBron wants,”
the associate insisted. “LeBron loves it [in Miami].” But nobody is
absolutely ruling out Cleveland, either.
Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski
reported Paul "has been privately telling
people for two years of his intrigue with bringing the prodigal son back
as the conquering hero in Cleveland."
Part of the appeal to James' crew is that the Miami Heat haven't allowed them free reign in South Beach.
The call is ultimately James' to make but his confidants will be pushing him to return home.
Also part of the appeal of Cleveland is Kyrie Irving. Woj wrote that as "Dwyane Wade
pushes into his 30s...

LeBron James wants you to appreciate the fact that’s he’s never taken a max deal in his 10 year NBA career. He wants you to understand that he’s sacrificed his personal finances to win and he never gets credit for that fact.
“I have not had a full max deal yet in my career — that’s a story untold,” James said.
“I don’t get (the credit) for it...
LeBron James doesn’t think it’s possible to be paid his actual value under the current NBA rules. Because of it he said he’s been willing to sacrifice on his contracts. ”What I do on the floor shows my value. At the end of the day, I don’t think my value on the floor can really be compensated for anyways because of the (collective bargaining agreement),” said James...
TORONTO -- As he so often does, LeBron James took over Sunday's game late in the fourth quarter, and he did it in a variety of ways. His rebound and pass set up a big 3-pointer from the corner by Chris Bosh to put the Miami Heat ahead by seven points. Then James stole a pass by Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry and took it the other way for a driving dunk, putting the...
MIAMI -- Maybe it was a Super Bowl hangover. After all, the Heat did alter their flight plan to remain in Toronto to watch the big game Sunday night and did not arrive in Miami until the wee hours of Monday morning. Fortunately for the Heat, they avoided what would have been a highly embarrassing loss, beating the Charlotte Bobcats 99-94 on Monday night. Heat forward LeBron James...
If he’s not worried then why justify it?
MIAMI LeBron James took his kids to school in the morning. Then he took the ball to the hoop at night.
James might have arrived home with his Miami Heat teammates at 3 a.m. Monday after a game and a Super Bowl party the day before in Toronto. But he was up a few hours later for fatherly duties.
While LeBron James Jr., 8, and Bryce Maximus James, 5, were in class, James went home...
MIAMI (AP) -- LeBron James scored 31 points and Chris Bosh added 23 to lead Miami past Charlotte 99-94 Monday night, the Heat's 10th consecutive victory against the Bobcats.

The Miami Heat are now 0-5 against the Top 4 teams in the Eastern Conference (Knicks (0-2), Bulls (0-1), Pacers (0-2)) – and 0-2 to the Indiana Pacers, losing to them by a combined 23 points this season. Ray Allen was held scoreless for just the 2nd and 3rd time in his 17-year career in 2 contests vs. the Pacers this season – but LeBron James and the Heat don’t seem to be concerned...
Tommy Hamilton is one of the better unsigned senior centers nationally. Here's a highlight reel of Hamilton at LeBron James Skills Academy.
Today, Super Bowl Sunday, the Raptors will play hosts to LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, the now Raptor fan-vilified Chris Bosh, and the Miami Heat. Once the two teams hit the court I expect the hospitality to end there. This marks the second of 2 straight BIG tests for the Toronto Raptors and their latest acquisition - Rudy Gay! Rudy's Toronto debut was nothing less than a show for...
