At this point, I would like Lebron to go. I understand that He is the best player in the NBA right now but this guy is an idiot. Lebron could never be at the level of Magic, Jordan or Kobe. Who does he think he is to mess with Pat Riley and the whole Miami Heat organization? Pat Riley is Wayyyyyyyyyy more important than Lebron for the Heat organization. Frankly it wouldn't feel right to me for Miami to win an nba title with Lebron in the line-up. Until you grow up Lebron, I would like to tell you thanks but no thanks and please get the heck out Miami and go back to your Cleveland asap.

Lebron is fine here in Miami what he was talking about is if his career is ending like when he's 38 or some thing relax he doesn't want to go back in a year or 2 i am pretty sure he would sign a longer contract if not then w.e, but right now we are on a championship run with him.

bulls fan here, not trolling though. Just wanted to pop in and say THIS is why I never wanted him on the bulls (yes, I was one of the few), because I would have been just too conflicted rooting for him and it would take a lot of the joy out of winning a 'ship. Now Miami fans are prob going to be feeling just that... If I was Riley I would trade him now for Howard or send him to a bad team for all their young talent just to spite him (i.e. Minny, Sac, etc...) As a bulls fan, I'd be much more afraid of Howard/Wade/Bosh trio. Imagine grabbing Love, Williams and Rubio then trading Bosh for a legit center like Nene or Hibbert or even a combo like Gortat/Frye or Gortat/Nash? Admit it, that could be sick and then you could all share in the fun of watching the douchebag fail. This is what you get from a person who tattoos "the king" and "chosen" on his body. We all want to win as fans but seriously, who wants to win on the shoulders of such a tool? cheers...

For god sake, stop reading into everything he says! He is basically saying he would like to eventually get an oppurtunity to finish his career in his home town if that situation would ever occurred. It's like when shaq said a few years back, that he would love to finish his career a laker or play for his home town NJ. Niether one ever happend!

Seriously you guys are ridiculous. Haven't you ever said something and it came out the wrong way? Okay that's what happened here. He does want to go back to Cleveland, but to retire you bafoons. It's LBJ anything he says will be magnified and dissected. So as Miami fans stfu and be happy we have him and is playing statistically the best basketball of his career.

Oh and btw if he wasn't happy you think he would be on the bench dancing, laughing and pretty much just having a good time? When did we see this last year. Our team chemistry is at all time high as well. So don't let the media influence you much less fans from other teams that would sucks lebrons left nut or sweaty feet after the game to have him on their team.

It does show no loyality to the team your playing with...if I was married left my wife to get another one I couldn't turn around a few months later and say "Well yeah one day I wouldn't mind going back to my ex" while I'm still on my damn honeymoon.

If this makes you happy. :)



"Nah, they shouldn't be worried at all," he said. "I love the fans in Miami and I'm here. The question was basically could I see myself playing back here. I said, 'yeah,' in the sense of I don't know what my future holds and I don't want to take that out, but I mean I love the fans of Miami and I got everything invested with this team and I'm looking forward to the years to come."

It's all speculative...

I wouldn't really read anything into it...

Besides, Miami has a championship caliber team THIS year... You need LBJ to get a ring...

You aren't winning one without him so, enjoy him while you can...

Unless the return is Durant and Westbrook, i'd say no thank you to any trade suggestions...

LMAO!! People need to develop better reading comprehension. Read with context fools. LeBron was asked that question and what else was he supposed to say? Cavs fans loved him and he was the only entertainment for the area of north-east ohio. He certainly did hurt their feelings by leaving. He's just trying to say the nicest things to their fans. And to be honest I wouldn't mind seeing him in Cavs uniform when he's past 35. I don't see him leaving Miami at all. Let's be honest, if he starts winning here why would he leave a championship factory? And he knows his legacy will be destroyed if he bolts Miami. He'll be labelled as a journeyman. Chillax fools...

Just a little bit of advice...your never going to get your point across by starting it off calling people fools. Most probably stopped reading whatever you had to say after they read the first sentence. Bottomline is Lebron should just keep it simple, if asked about another team just say I'm in Miami now bye bye. Naps huh...great screen handle.

NO...fools will read it because well, they are fools. Too many immature people these days overreact for nothing.

Lebron is still very immature. He grew up in Ohio, went to school in Ohio, played his first 7 years of pro ball in Ohio, and is only now actually in the process of growing up. He's away from friends and family for the first time in his life. There's a lot he's adjusting to and his heart won't ever be tied to Miami unless the Heat win multiple championships. The guy just wants to think of his home as his home forever, and his home will always be in Ohio - not South Beach. He'd like to retire a Cav and be welcomed back in that community. No surprise. It's all he's ever known. I hope he is persuaded to stay with the Heat and build ties here, but it's going to take winning lots of rings because the emotional side will otherwise always be with his hometown life. He came here for professional reasons, and the only way to make his career decision emotional is for him to become really good at what he set out to accomplish: building a dynasty.

I'm pretty sure his family lives here and his kid go to school here, i always saw his mom and entourage guys at the heat games. If he wins some rings here i can see him staying for a while. Eventually tho i can see him go back to cle, and i think that would be a good thing for him, maybe when he's 32 and after he has won some rings in miami. I do believe his focus is in miami right now.

I did not know where to put this. So I do here.


LeBron, warranted or not, continues to wear bull's-eye

The Knicks visit Miami on Thursday and everyone will see this is no fluke, that he's having a rare and epic season and maybe, despite the doubts, the best is yet to come for him and his team.

Oh, wait. You thought this was another Jeremy Lin story?

No. It's LeBron James and how his steady all-around and all-encompassing performance is being buried by all the pixie dust blowing from New York. It's weird. James is ripping through the season and throwing up mad numbers and the basketball public just shrugs and points toward the 2012 NBA Finals, specifically the fourth quarters (assuming Miami is playing). Such is the life LeBron created for himself, and his critics created for him, here in a season in which he's taken for granted, a season shaping up as another MVP run which will be dismissed if the Heat don't win it all.

LeBron is bringing 28 points (second in the league), 8.2 rebounds (tied with Kevin Durant among small forwards; no one else is close), seven assists, 1.71 steals (ninth) and plenty of scorched earth from rim to rim on the fast break. If he spends the second half of the season crashing boards and passing more than shooting, he could average a triple-double for the year, or come close. Then you'd have to give him an Oscar (Robertson) in addition to the MVP.

Plus the Heat are steamrolling, losing only three times since January 14, showing no sign of slippage even when Dwyane Wade sat and ached for a spell. LeBron simply took over as a solo star, as he did for seven years in Cleveland, keeping Miami on pace to overtake the Bulls for the conference lead.

Of course, this being LeBron, even the good times couldn't last without a burp. LeBron gushed about a Blake Griffin dunk a few weeks back, never mentioning the victim by name, and still the hypersensitive Kendrick Perkins, the victim, pounced and said that as a great player, LeBron shouldn't spend his time Tweeting (ignoring that his own teammate, Durant, tweets, too). As expected, LeBron took heat from the media and fans for poking fun at a fellow player, rather than for praising Griffin, and it's a reflex reaction he has grudgingly come to accept.

"That's the way it is," said LeBron, his feet plunged in an ice bucket while his head smoldered. "I'm an easy target. If someone wants to get a point across, just throw LeBron's name in there," he said, before adding, half-joking, how everything wrong about the world is "LeBron's fault."

More recently, LeBron was accused of floating a trial balloon about returning to Cleveland someday when he answered a hypothetical question. Suddenly, he was plotting an exit strategy, or at worse, being traitorous to Miami, at least according to a segment of the public. Once again, LeBron was passionately debated on talk radio and TV shows and social media, everyone choosing sides regarding the self-proclaimed "easy target."

He said the "Decision" backlash is starting to weaken, and there may be some truth to that, judging strictly by the fainter boos in visiting arenas (Cleveland excepted). But there will always be the "Fourth Quarter" until he goes great lengths to silence that angle, too. And that can't happen without a ring which, fair or not, makes his regular season somewhat moot, remarkable as it is.

The table is set differently for LeBron, who in every way is the exact opposite of Lin. LeBron was raised in a dysfunctional home, was on a magazine cover before his 16th birthday, never went to college (much less Harvard), was ticketed for the Hall before he took his first NBA dribble, won MVPs and dragged a weak Cleveland team to the Finals and saw his popularity soar and crash almost overnight. He's had his own mania, LeSanity if you will, not all of it glowing and gushing.

That's understandable. Humble and educated and never spoiled by a sports-mad media as a teenager, Lin says all the right things while a brash and unapologetic (at least initially) LeBron made a silly "Decision" and was treated like a convict.

It'll be interesting to witness these two completely separate comets headed in the same direction when the Knicks play the Heat. This will hardly be a statement game for LeBron and the Heat; just as well, they can get an up-close look at what all the fuss is about.

And so, too, can all of us, when we see the season LeBron is putting together. There will be no fuss being made over a player who's doing the expected, at least until he covers new ground. Because, as captivating as he is right now, the Jeremy Lin moment for LeBron James must wait another four months, when a still-skeptical public sees how valuable he truly is. Or is not.

Guess I could understand you saying that about Wade who was drafted by and stayed with Miami. Folks that say trade him just see a lack of loyalty on Lebrons part...I have to admit I've never heard a player talking about playing with another team a year after signing a six year deal.

I'm literally shocked that a supposed Heat fan actually started this thread. As a Heat fan since day one I can honestly say, I don't give a damn what Lebron says. His actions on the court this season speaks louder than words. What, 4 player of the week awards? Statistically the most efficient season in the History of the NBA? A brand new post up game? The guy who throws his body around on defense like he was an undrafted rookie playing for a contract? I can see with my own eyes the man is deeply comitted to winning in a Heat uniform. Stop tripping. Jeesh.
