Report: LeBron James to hold off on decision until Thursday

Jul 4, 2010, 3:09 PM EST

Thumbnail image for LeBron_game4.jpgGreat news everybody! Another four days of LeBron James speculation! I know that’s what everybody really was hoping for.

Right. But according to a tweet from the very well connected Brian Windhorst, James is not going to be announcing his decision for several more days at the earliest.

Sources say LeBron plans to wait until after 3-day Nike camp in Akron is over to announce decision. Ends Wed. nite

Thurs. ironically is first day free agents can sign, cap numbers become official.

That announcement is expected to come first on LeBron’s Web site.

There are a couple ways one could look at this. If LeBron is leaving, there is no way he’d make a Monday announcement — you don’t want to do a three day camp in your home town right after you broke the city’s hearts.

However, you can’t say for sure he is leaving. He’s got a lot to think about, a lot of options and variables to consider. Waiting to think about all that a little more makes sense.

But until the LeBron domino falls, not many others will. So bring on more rampant speculation!

    “If LeBron is leaving, there is no way he’d make a Monday announcement — you don’t want to do a three day camp in your home town right after you broke the city’s hearts. ”
    i went the other way on this. i figured if he was staying what better way to run the camp with everyone knowing he was to remain a Cav?

    Here is a scenario for you. Wade and Bosh both go to Chicago, joining Rose and Noah and giving the Bulls a legitimite contender for years to come, and LeBron gets left out in the cold. That would be a disaster.

    or he stays with the Cavs, beats Chicago, the Celtics and the Lakers and wins the title king, legit; hard thoughts

    that Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts converts to Catholicism, undergoes a sex change, competes with Giselle, and moves next door to Tom Brady et al in LA

    maybe LBJ should play for the Bengals and teach them how to stay out of prison

  9. priestshavemorefunanddon'tgetcaught - Jul 4, 2010 at 4:53 PM

    that the priests at UD take out their sexual frustrations on the court instead of escaping court during their courtship of “underage” women on campus

    LBJ should stay in Cleveland and [continue to] suck the worst school system in the nation $dry$

    wtf are you talking about? or better yet, what are you smoking?? we are talking about LBJ her!

  12. CAVS? - Jul 4, 2010 at 4:57 PM

    Ohio should put large screen TVs in prison so we can watch LeBron lose with the Cavs another season

    One championship ring is not enough to grab the kingship in NBA. HE HAS TO SURPASS KOBE AND MIKE.
    In the meantime, stop calling him king already. It irritates the ears.

    Good Lord, this is getting stupid. He’s acting like the popular girl in high school, enjoying every second of the “will he/won’t he/where to” crap. Pull the plug on it all until he says where he’s going, and then we can listen to a summer/fall of “and now they’re the favorites to win it all” garbage.

    The problem Lebron may have is that once teams are fairly sure he won’t sign with them, they’ll start stacking up players. Once he commits to one team, it’s gonna be musical chair mayhem. No team with millions in cap room will want to be standing there with nobody on their roster and no quality free agents left to sign. Who wants to own a team on the day that Lebron doesn’t pick them to sign with? LBJ shouldn’t sign with Chicago. That will always be Jordan’s town and Joakim Noah and Luol Deng won’t help anyone to a championship. The Heat will always be Wade’s team. The Cavs (when healthy) are closer than anyone else in the East. Once Eddy Curry’s salary is off NY’s books, the Knicks will have as much money as the Heat. Be careful LBJ. It’s easier to lead someone to a championship than count on Eddy Curry to help you get there.

    Jeffmage…..you have made the most correct statement I have seen on here and in the papers…..he would be left out in the cold in that scenario for years to come….

    I’m guessing that with your knowledge of history you think the USA fought the Revolutionary War beginning in 1861 to gain independence from Russia.
    Lebron would have to surpass Kobe and Mike COMBINED to be the king, inasmuch as the true king is still Bill Russell, who won 11–that’s e-l-e-v-e-n–rings in 13 years, including 8 in a row.
