    figured it needs its own thread as the news just broke.

    Re: Lebron James to opt out of contract

    That could still mean a lot of different things. He could be opting out to sign a smaller deal in order to clear up cap room in Miami, he could be looking to head to another team, or he might not even know which of those options he wants yet.

    Weird thing is if he somehow comes back to Cleveland, I'll probably root for him again. Maybe it's my whole "root for the underdog" mentality.

    Re: Lebron James to opt out of contract

    I am guessing he will take his time. Probably see where Kevin Love lands or what Melo is going to do. If he is all about winning more rings, I don't think Miami is the place to do it - unless they get rid of Bosh and Wade signs for $5MM (which is what a part time player should make).

    Did you root for him when he was in Cleveland and then stop when he signed with Miami?

    Like I said, I think this news basically tells us nothing. When we start getting reports about Wade or Bosh opting out, then we will really know which way the wind is blowing in Miami.

    Re: Lebron James to opt out of contract

    I think in general, he needs to take less cash and get more help. Miami worked him hard this year and he's not getting any younger.

    There are already reports that Wade is planning on opting out just to benefit Miami. Wade won't go anywhere else, but I can see him taking a 4 year deal worth ~$12mil/year at Miami.

    Plus Rubio running the point. I would probably cry... and yes I know that he would never come to Minnesota.

    If that turns out to be the case, I suspect LeBron is leaning towards returning.

    And Bosh has already said he will take less money too, if they all take deals in the $12-14M range, Miami will have a lot of roster freedom the next few years. Now they just need to talk Haslem into retiring and joining Mourning and Juwan Howard in the front office.

    Didn't Birdman say he was leaving already? How much would that free up? Nevermind, looks like about 3.5

    He's probably waiting to find out what NBA Team Fred is going to.

    Sorry, had to say it, it's the off season.
