Seeing as there are currently 6 LeBron threads and the entire forum is going crazy, mods please help me and combine all the LeBron threads into one, to clean the forum clutter up.

Anyway:

Chris Broussard @Chris_Broussard · 23m
Sources: Today's meeting will consist of Pat Riley, LeBron James and Rich Paul, James's agent. No one else.

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat · 13s
Confirmed: Meeting between Riley, LeBron and agent Rich Paul will begin at 6 p.m. Eastern time in Las Vegas.


By late tonight, EST, the dust should clear and everything will be known and out in the open after the meeting.

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—N.B.A. superstar LeBron James said Tuesday morning that he would announce the name of the team that he is signing with on Thursday at a special session of the United Nations General Assembly to be convened especially for that purpose.

“This decision affects everyone on the planet,” James said. “I want to let all the nations on Earth know at the same time.”

if he was staying in miami, i doubt he would be meeting with pat in las vegas. its a thank you, im going home meeting. pat didn't make any moves to keep bron in miami, roster is under question and bron already knows his decision, this pretty much lead to lebron going back

Gilbert: I'm sorry I said what I said after you announced your decision to leave Cleveland.

Lebron: I'm sorry for the way I announced my decision to sign with Miami.

Breaking. Lebron ate lunch today.

And the lunch was a chipotle cheese steak. But the question remains however, did he have the sub with, or WITHOUT the chipotle?

Broussard a moment ago tells us that there is an 80% chance he had the sub WITH the chipotle. Lebron will later have a meeting about it with a Subway's cashier. The decision could be announced at any moment, tomorrow, the day after, or some time after.

Didn't he pay 100m dollars his first year in Miami for his house? A bunch of acres of land in the top 10 most expensive homes in south florida. That and Miami has a lot of exotic car export services, why would he hire a company from Orlando? lol

I'm hearing that he actually skipped lunch and had a large breakfast.

Also, and take it with a grain of salt, but I'm also hearing that he enjoyed breakfast so much that he has requested Pat Riley to cook him brinner before the meeting

Sorry but my sauces already said that Lebron was having a cheese steak. Possibly with or without chipotle.

My sauces are never wrong.

Everything that has been happening all point towards Lebron going back to CLE.
We wouldn't really know until he finally announces it, but I believe that it really is a done deal for 2 reasons:

1. After The Decision, I don't think CLE, particularly Dan Gilbert, is THAT stupid to make all these moves without a near guarantee that Lebron comes back.
2. After The Decision, I don't think Lebron is THAT stupid to play with the hearts of CLE again. He already experienced how those fans reacted when he left, and he didn't like that. I'm pretty sure he wouldn't go through all this **** AGAIN.

In all honesty, I think Lebron's meeting with Riley might all just be a formality. One speculation that I have is that maybe is Lebron is trying to figure out a way he can get the Heat something in return, kinda like a S&T for picks.

But then again, I've been wrong before. This thing has to end soon.

12:01 tonight is the key guys. If Miami acquire McRobets and Granger through trades, that opens up the MLE and even BAE which means the Heat can getting at the minimum two more quality players.

I am sure Riley presented LeBron with the rest of Miami's free agency plan, and by not committing after the meeting to either Cleveland or Miami, LeBron is giving Riley time after the official signing period for Miami to make moves, and/or Cleveland a chance to trade for Love or finalize a deal with T-Wolves and have a deal in place.

If Miami's only two additions are McRoberts and Granger however, LeBron will be wearing a Cavs uniform next season, I can say that pretty confidently. If Riley, who I am sure discussed future free agency plans with LeBron comes through, then LeBron comes back to a Miami team loaded with depth and ready to compete for another championship.

Basically lets see what happens in the next 3-4 hours, I am sure twitter/espn etc etc are going to blow up at 12:01 with official signings and new signings and by tomorrow the dust should clear.
