Does anyone else cringe when they read "LeBron" and "decision" in the same sentence?

Pain or poor sportsmanship?

Here's my advise LeBron; Either stick with the team you chose to run to and try to elevate them back to the top (the Heat), or go back to the team you left in shambles (the Cavs), your hometown, and try to elevate them to a higher level. My guess is you'll do neither, and instead try to run again to another team like the Knicks that can offer you gobs of money and team you up with other all stars they will bring in to win a title in New York. That will just reenforce my distaste for the state of affairs in the NBA that stacks the odds always against the small market teams. Show some loyalty LeBron and quit trying to jump on a new contender every time your contract expires.

"I just want to win. That's all that matters to me ..." - Lebron James

So the 22 million+ he will make next season (if he stays) counts for nothing?

"James said that at some point, he, Wade and Bosh will gather to talk about their plans."

Sounds like more collusion to stack the deck, yet again, in their favor.

The problem with the Miami Heat is they have spent most of their money on three SuperStars and very little on the rest of the team.

The next highest salaried player, after the big three, is Udonis Haslem who made a paltry 4.3 million (by comparison) this past season - while each of the big three pocketed approximately 19 million. If they really want to win another championship they need to each take a pay cut so the team can hire some backups. Because if they opt to stay with the Heat, their salaries take jump to over 20 million next season. They will have their money, but will likely fall short again of their goal of winning another championship.

It will be interesting to see what they decide to do. Money or a championship? Hmm . . . I bet money wins out.

LeBron is obviously just trying to build the drama before making his long-awaited announcement to join the Jazz. Press conference to be held in SLC shortly.

After all, if winning is the very most important thing to him, he's definitely and obviously going to the right team!
