What else would you expect? Any reasonable person would do so.

I suspect the Cavs won't let LeBron go. Why would they? He's on his way to being the very best in the NBA. He'll be the corner stone of any successful team. Of course I'd love to see him on the Knicks lol but that'll never happen.

There used to be some who played for the love of the game. Then again, no one does that anymore.
The cavs also don't have the last say in whether or not he goes and based on the recent buzz about him respecting michael jordan by switching from 23 to 6, maybe Chicago?

He's from Akron, and has his closest family and friends here (with whom he just made a documentary feature film).

It could be just wishful thinking, but I suspect he'll stay in Cleveland. But testing the market will estimate FMV, which is smart before signing.

The Cavs won't want to let LeBron go, but if they can't afford him, LeBron is gone. LeBron is going for the fame, although I think he'd like to stay in Cleveland IF they pay him a lot more money and IF they win the championship this year.

Yeah, he has a good chance of winning it all this year... if he does, the price maybe too high to keep him... but Cavs will do everything to keep him...

They are playing hardball right now just to make negotiations competitive... but it is not working, LB's agent knows better.

I personally think that he has no reason to stay in Cleveland they are in a mess and they are stuck in a mess. LeBron James wants a championship and Cleveland cannot win one Shaq is not enough and even if they miraculously do win one there is still no reason to stay because Shaq will probably retire and then they will be back in the mess. I say he will be a New Jersey Net their owner is willing to put up the money and all the pieces to be a good team is already there

Lebron is the missing link to a team full of talent.

You can play because you love the game and yet pick WHERE to play for some other reason, since you're playing the same game either way.

As of 11/24/09:

Cleveland Cavaliers (10-4)

New Jersey Nets (0-13)

Solid analysis.

Nets are by default my 2nd favorite team; I'd be happy if LeBron went there... but ugh I wish he could go to the Knicks! Grr!

Technically, that's not a valid comparison, since the relevant measure is how the Nets perform with Lebron against how the Cavs perform with Lebron, not how the Cavs perform with against how the Nets perform without.

But when he says Cleveland, with Lebron, is "stuck in a mess" (currently at 10-4), it doesn't lend itself to any prospect of him doing better with an 0-13 team.

I'm not at all familiar with New Jersey's roster (or that of any NBA teams really), so this may not be relevant, but hypothetically, a team can have a lot of young useful pieces and a lot of room under the salary cap and be a better place for Lebron than some team with a bunch of mediocre veterans signed to overvalued deals, especially in a guaranteed contract league by the NBA. That is, the claim that the Nets have players which compliment Lebron well does not logically entail the claim that those players can in and of themselves win anything.

It certainly doesn't logically entail that they'd be better than 10-4, or any less "stuck" than Cleveland, with him.

Well the nets are on a losing streak because the start of their season was plagued with injuries we cant judge their abilities until their line up is healthy. and Out of the most likely teams to acquire him by most articles its a battle between
Cavs
Nets
Knicks
I say nets are the best place for him because that team is very young and improves every year. yeah yeah i know 0-16 or something like that now but they are a team that lacks leadership right now something Lebron can bring. But LeBron's situation is a mess every espn show the analysts say the same thing he is doing the majority of the work. Whoever watched the NBA playoffs against the magic last year in the 2nd game they won the Cavs threw away their game plan and just let Lebron take it up and down the court while everyone on the team were stationed.
