Members of the organization reportedly believe it’s possible. And of course, they want it to happen. Every team in the NBA wants LeBron.
The question is how committed the Cavaliers are to luring back LeBron. Some conspiracy enthusiasts believe every move Cleveland makes – from trading for Luol Deng to scheduling Ilgauskas’ jersey retirement on a date LeBron could attend – is influenced by impressing LeBron.

Maybe the Cavaliers clued in LeBron of the misspelling in advance – he certainly didn’t play as if he were distracted by the error as the Heat pulled away late for a 100-96 win – and it’s a plot to get Anderson Varejao out of town, clearing more cap room.
Or maybe it’s just negligence.
