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, past his prime, Cleveland's Kyrie Irving will emerge as the planet's preeminent point guard in two years." The thought of teaming with Uncle Drew could be a strong selling point for James.
