LeBron James has narrowed his choices down to the Miami Heat and Cleveland Cavaliers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski during an appearance on Fox Sports Live.

James will meet with Pat Riley on Wednesday.

James is looking for a max contract from the Heat while the team also improves the roster. The Heat have reached agreements with Josh McRoberts and Danny Granger in free agency.

So it's either a historic 5 straight finals appearances and a dynasty or back to Crapland, where the fans and owner suck and are disrespectful. The city is literally a Mattress or Dumpster Fire. This fairy tale stuff does nothing for his legacy in my eyes because people buy into it so much.

My personal belief is that hes meeting with Riley to tell him face to face his decision to head back home. I think he sees a golden opportunity to mend the fence with his home state and have a young team he wont have to carry until retirement.

I hope he goes back to MIA. In the short term i think that's probably his best chance to win but long term that CLE roster could be a true powerhouse. I don't want to have to deal with that in the East for the next 5+ years.

Heat are soooo lucky that they have 3 ships. Wade was gifted his first one, and a miracle choke by the Spurs.

He needs to show some gratitude to Pat Riley and Dwyane Wade, who actually taught him how to and put him in position to become a multiple time champion. He would be nothing without those 2, that's why he left Cleveland for Miami in the first place. Do what's right and stay in Miami and actually work your way with these group of guys again rather than latching onto the flavor of the month (Cavs or any other team). That time of being with the Cavs is over, he's gotta let it go and retire a Miami Heat.

The 2010 LeBron is so much different from the 2014 LeBron. The 2010 LeBron actually cared what people thought of him. He's at the point now where he doesn't care what people think of him. IMO he's done all he could in Miami with that roster. He's delivered them 2 championships and I still feel like in his heart/mind he has some guilt from "The Decision". I truly believes he wants to deliver his home state a championship. They haven't won a championship since 1964. If he goes back to Cleveland he can finally just stick to playing the way LeBron does and not worry about killing himself on the offensive and defensive end just to stay competitive in the game. Also he would be surrounded by youth that he can grow with for at least the next 3 to 5 years. He has potentially the best PG in the next few years in Kyrie Irving, a potential stud in Wiggins and plenty of role players to surround him, not to mention vets will flock to Cleveland if LeBron was to go back. Cleveland is the better situation for him IMO.

Actually, he said it on Fox Sports Live. Woj: "By every source I have, there are just two considerations at this point — and that’s Cleveland and staying in Miami."

This. Honestly I think lebron is waiting on the heat to get better. He opted out to give them more money and improve which hasn't happened.

Would be really neat to see Lebron paired up with Wiggins and Kyrie. Wiggins doesn't have to be a primary scorer and will thrive being able to use his abilities to the max on defense.

No he doesn't. They don't do any of that without Lebron and should be happy he agreed to take a paycut to make it happen and carry the heat to 2 rings and 4 finals. Wade and Riley should thank Lebron for leaving his home town team and leading the way for 2 rings.

It was a mutually beneficial relationship. None of them owe any of them anything.

Are you a heat fan saying another teams fans suck? The heat fans walked out in their own team during the finals. That the epitemy of terrible.

The only way this turns out we'll is if lebron returns home. He most certainly can't go to a 3rd team. You can't rip the heart from this city a 2nd time. It would come off like he's been toying with them the entire time. I wonder if his plan all along. To go play with is friends,win some rings and then come home.

LeBron James reached out to two vet free agents last week about joining him, IF he left Miami, sources tell Yahoo. Mike Miller was one.

Both are great choices. He won't receive backlash that he would receive if he joined any other team and he has a chance to make things right with Cleveland. My pick? Go with Cleveland. Better fanbase and a better roster to work with. Miami sounds great and all but the true fans are in Cleveland. Would love to see all who the real Heat fans are..

No one wants to factor this in, but what if he doesn't win a championship there (it would be one of the saddest sports stories ever; he might need mental help after)?

And I don't believe key free agents would start to frequently signed there... No history of this lmao
