Lebron James crushed the Cleveland Cavaliers fan's hearts in 2010 when he made the decision to leave the team that drafted him out of high school in 2003 to make a run for a championship by joining Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade in Miami.
As crazy as it might seem, the Cavs appear ready to try and bring Lebron back in the summer of 2014 when he becomes a free agent.
The Akron Beacon Journal's Jason Lloyd reported that the Cavs are saving cap room space to make the eight-time NBA All-Star a max contract offer.
Executives and agents around the league are convinced the Cavaliers won’t do anything to jeopardize their ability to sign a free agent to a max contract during the summer of 2014, when LeBron James can again become a free agent. As fans in Northeast Ohio continue to howl and remain divided about the possibility of his return, more and more people around the league believe there is a strong possibility James will indeed return to Cleveland after next season.
Lebron, an Ohio native who still lives there in the off season has said a return to Cleveland is not out of the question.
"I think it would be great," James said before a game against the Cavs last season. "It would be fun to play in front of these fans again. I had a lot fun times in my seven years here. You can't predict the future, and hopefully I continue to stay healthy. I'm here as a Miami Heat player, and I'm happy where I am now, but I don't rule that out in no sense."
Chris Broussard of ESPN points out that 30-year old Dwayne Wade appears to be losing a step and Lebron might look at Cleveland as a nice alternative to the Heat. Wade's scoring and assists are down this year from their career averages.
Cleveland has a nice nucleus of young players like Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson and Dion Waiters.
