LeBron James is signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers, at least that’s what the most polarizing report of free agency suggests. Basketblogger Chris Sheridan claims that his sources have told him LeBron James is going to return to Cleveland this summer and he’s not backing down.
Despite backlash from just about everyone, Sheridan is sticking by his report and is urging everyone to look for the Cavaliers announcement that they’ve signed LeBron to show up on the superstar’s official website.
LeBron-to-Cavs news will eventually post on http://t.co/UWcnreYIe0. Nat’l media being fed misinformation. I stand by my source & story 100%.

This is an interesting story to watch develop as Sheridan isn’t mildly reporting and covering his bases, he’s going all in and risking his reputation forever on this scoop. Should it turn out to be true, it could do to Sheridan what Brett Favre’s dong did for getting Deadspin on the map in terms of being a credible news outlet, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
The bottom line is that only LeBron knows what he wants to do and no one will believe anything until they hear it come out of his mouth for the second time in four years.
