I think LeBron and Cleveland will kiss and make up, so I'll say yes.

No unless he leaves miami once his contract expires to return and join Kyrie to try and win a ship.

A couple years after he retires, once the negativity goes away and the realization of exactly what he did for our franchise comes in, we'd be crazy not to.

Gave us our first Finals appearance, and our first glimmer of hope since the Mark Price/Brad Daugherty days.
2x MVP.
6x All-Star.
4x All-NBA 1st team.
All-Time Cleveland leader in Minutes Played, Points, Free Throws Made and Attempted, Steals.

Makes sense, but still, Dan Gilbert might have to croke first, or like I said, if he rejoined the team later in his career.

im on the other side of the country but he seems unforgivable there....

unless he goes back and wins a ring which is very doubtful..... Id like to think since he is a good enough guy, the best player ever for the franchise and home grown that enough time could heal the wounds but i dont see it. how he left was extreme betrayal.

Dan Gilbert's an over-reacting little crybaby, quite frankly, just like a lot of other Cleveland fans, and fans around the league.

Sure, LeBron could have not made a broadcast television special based solely on his choice to leave Cleveland for greener pastures. Could have not said that he won't stop until he brings a championship to Cleveland, and lead us on like that.

He could have left quietly, but that's hard to do for a 25 year-old megastar, who's been hyped as the next Jordan since the age of 18. It's understandable LeBron has such the huge ego that he does.

But a healthy 8 year career with one team, with many personal accomplishments and team success (The most in Cleveland Cavaliers history, really) all of which as the number one guy on the team while the second best player you have is an injured Zydrunas Ilgauskas or Mo Williams/Larry Hughes.

That should not be diminished because of how he left, no matter how ugly it was.

he will restricted free agent cleveland would match anything if they are smart
the star always leaves after 7-8 year

Same thing will happen to Kyrie that happened to LeBron if we don't get some serious talent around him.

Only way I see this if he goes back in FA.

Kyrie Irving wore 23 but when he came to the Cavs he didnt, so they are retiring it

I agree with you, but I don't think Gilbert will

When it's all said and done...the answer is YES. I don't think anyone will ever bring that much to this type of a franchise ever again. They need to be thankful he stayed as long as he did. It was quite obvious no one wanted to play in Cleveland.

He wore #1 at Duke and #11 at St. Patrick's.

I say yes, I think he will return to the Cavs after Miami and will win one at least one championship.

Whose more likely to have their Jersey retired.

Lebron in Cleveland

or

Vince Carter in Toronto


Now there's a question for you

all players who have had their jersey's retired by 2 teams. It can happen if a players great career spreads over 2 teams especially if a chip is involved in one of them.

They should, but Gilbert seems like he would be too prideful to do it.

Did any of those guys have "The decision" and pretty much humiliate an entire fanbase and organization?

Yes, best player in their history, that's like saying that Minnesota won't retire Garnett's number.

Time to get over it.

Time to get over it.

Why should Cleveland get over it to the point to retire his number?

I understand eventually you need to move past it, and I'm sure Irving is helping them move on.

Just because they move on and aren't burning any Lebron James jerseys, doesnt mean they have to honor his number.

Unless he goes back to Cleveland.

Get butthurt on psd = speaking the truth. I said Lebron shouldnt get his number retired because he shitted on cleveland. But im butt hurt for saying that.. lmfao

they absolutely should, he's only the greatest player in the history of the franchise, no slight to Mark Price... but Gilbert is bitter.

It would be a joke if they didn't. I'm by no means a LeBron James fan (he was one of my least favorite players in the league until Dwight Howard's actions made his look pretty tame by comparison), but there is no way that they can NOT retire the number of the greatest player in franchise history.
