The Cleveland Cavaliers have never gotten over losing LeBron James and it seems the only way they will is to get back the lost toy they allowed to wander away to South Beach. As stupid a notion it seems that LeBron James would opt-out of the best situation of his basketball career to return to a basketball boneyard, there are a lot of people that think it can still happen.
According to Fox Sports Ohio insider Sam Amico, the Cavaliers are still very much interested in getting LeBron James this summer or in the future and will be going after him hard by way of improving the team dramatically.
“The answer is, they will certainly try. The Cavs want LeBron back and the full-court press is basically on. (Although I should add they are taking care to abide by the rules and are making sure not to contact him directly.) If that means trading for an impressive vet, yeah, they’re certainly gonna try.”
That’s cute Cleveland, but keep dreaming.
Look, I’m not opposed to LeBron James going the cinematic route and completing his career circle back where it started. That’s what a lot of basketball fans want to see as it’s the perfect storybook ending to LeBron’s career. But his career is nowhere near over and he has at least until 2017 to remain at the height he’s at.
Maybe then he’ll return to Cleveland because maybe by then they’ll actually be good. But until Dan Gilbert gets a clue, LeBron James will not be going abck to the Cavaliers and Heat fans have nothing to worry about there.
