LeBron James Opt-O-Meter: After Heat Acquire Shabazz Napier

Editor’s note: Oh, that’s right! The great LeBron James Opt-O-Meter returns for an NBA draft edition following the Miami Heat’s move to acquire UConn point guard and immediate fan favorite Shabazz Napier. Credit to the dashing David Ramil for the idea. Yes, technically LeBron already opted out. But calling this the ‘LeBron James Resign-O-Meter’ isn’t nearly as catchy. So deal with it. Now that the Heat got LeBron’s favorite player in the draft, what are the chances he re-ups in Miami? – WG

6/26 Opt-O-Reading: 8.5

David Ramil: With the selection of Shabazz Napier, LeBron chances of staying with Miami are 100%! Unfortunately, it also likely means the end of Bulldog Era, with Toney Douglas on his way out to make way for a Chalmers/Cole/Napier rotation

Kristopher KeatonI’m gonna go with a 6. Yes, it helps. But this ultimately all comes down to what Dwyane Wade decides to do.

Chris Posada10. LeBron’s tweet shows that he really is behind Napier. The selection helps increase the chances that LeBron stays in Miami. It really does feel like he wants to come back, all things being equal, so it’s just a matter of Dwyane Wade doing the right thing.

Wes Goldberg: 8. LeBron really wanted Shabazz, yeah. But a rookie combo guard aint enough to keep the best player in the world in Miami. Erik Spoelstra, Pat Riley, his friends Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade might be enough, though.
