LeBron James Rumors

  1. Report: Amare made his pitch, but LeBron wasn't buying

    Jul 8, 2010, 10:37 AM EDT

    Remember the good ol’ days, when the Knicks were the team seeming to be climbing up the LeBron James ladder? When they were a team on the rise? What was that, 36 hours ago? When the Suns Jared Dudley tweeted that LeBron was going to be a Knick. Now, LeBron is not buying the pitch.…

  2. LeBron's choices: It seems like Miami now, but in this drama things change

    Jul 8, 2010, 9:02 AM EDT

    We don’t know. We won’t really know until some time between 9 and 9:15 pm Eastern tonight. What we have now is drama. Manufactured drama. And that makes every rumor suspect — if you were trying to create drama for a show like this, you’d leak different things to different people. You’d keep everybody guessing,…

  3. Reports: LeBron James leaning heavily toward Miami

    Jul 8, 2010, 2:04 AM EDT

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh all on the same team. Wow. But it is looking more and more that way. Sources have told Alan Hahn at Newsday as well as the well-connected Chris Broussard at ESPN that LeBron is leaning heavily toward joining Wade and Bosh in Miami. Nothing is certain. The ground…

  4. Suns' Jared Dudley says LeBron James is going to New York

    Jul 7, 2010, 3:50 PM EDT

    I really hope Jared Dudley is wrong about this, because if he’s right we’re all going to be hearing damn Jay-Z and Alicia Keys on a loop for the next year. Phoenix Suns bench guy and growing media darling (he is one of the best interviews in the game) Jared Dudley is saying it is…

  5. Report: Teams going after Carlos Boozer in last-ditched effort to lure LeBron

    Jul 7, 2010, 2:03 PM EDT

    The LeBron James sweepstakes are not over. Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade will be in Miami, and it is possible that James will join them (if Toronto will take on Michael Beasley’s contracts or if the big three are all willing to take a pay cut). But other teams are trying to provide an alternative.…

  6. Dwyane Wade says Chris Bosh coming to Miami was key to his return

    Jul 7, 2010, 12:59 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh went on ESPN Wednesday morning and made it official — they are both going to be playing for the Miami Heat next season. There was nothing else shocking in their interview, but they confirmed things already suggested in the media. Like that Wade seriously considered playing for his hometown Chicago…

  7. Teams, some in LeBron James camp caught off-guard by television program

    Jul 7, 2010, 9:59 AM EDT

    You thought the LeBron James television special idea came out of the blue, imagine the teams that have been courting him? According to Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, officials from the teams that met with LeBron did not know of the television special until the word broke on ESPN last night. Here is…

  8. LeBron James isn't talking to anyone, but we're all still guessing

    Jul 6, 2010, 9:03 AM EDT

    We don’t know. Nobody in the media knows. That won’t stop us from speculating. We’ll use a shred of information to concoct entire theories. We’ll guess. (Complain about that if you want, but those guesses get a lot of viewers — you like it so we keep doing it). But we don’t know what LeBron…

  9. Did Derrick Rose prefer Joe Johnson to LeBron James?

    Jul 6, 2010, 8:38 AM EDT

    Would you rather have Joe Johnson or LeBron James on your team? Exactly. It’s not even close. Even if you think there are flaws with LeBron’s game, there are far fewer than Johnson. LeBron is a true first option. Joe Johnson is a true second option on a title team. LeBron is a true max…

  10. Cavaliers GM Chris Grant talks after LeBron meeting

    Jul 5, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

      You had probably gone through your entire morning without hearing some NBA executive spew cliches. We’re hear to fix that. This is Cavaliers GM Chris Grant after meeting with LeBron James a couple days ago. Pretty much all of the post-meeting press conferences sounded like this.

  11. Report: LeBron James to hold off on decision until Thursday

    Jul 4, 2010, 3:09 PM EDT

    Great 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…

  12. What Cleveland was pitching LeBron

    Jul 4, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    This is just part — a 10 minute video part — of the pitch that the Cleveland Cavaliers made to LeBron James. Slick video’s aren’t going to sell the man, but it is fun to watch.

  13. Today's NBA free-agency schedule: The final LeBron act, and Stoudemire meets Knicks

    Jul 3, 2010, 10:41 AM EDT

    LeBron James will meet with the Cleveland Cavaliers at 11:00AM EST, then with the Chicago Bulls at 1:30AM EST. That concludes James’ tour of teams on “the list.” He’s then expected to take Sunday to consider his options and discuss with his people on the holiday, then make his decision Monday. Again, “expected.” He very…

  14. Cavs to pitch LeBron James with humor, familiarity, and Chris Bosh

    Jul 3, 2010, 8:54 AM EDT

    The New York Knicks pitched a billion dollars. The Miami Heat pitched championship rings and the value of sacrifice. The New Jersey Nets pitched a media empire. The Los Angeles Clippers pitched… (giggle)… Baron Davis and Chris Kaman. So what are the Cleveland Cavaliers, the home team, the favorites in many’s eyes to retain the…

  15. Broadway singers pitch LeBron, too

    Jul 2, 2010, 5:25 PM EDT

    We’re not sure that LeBron is a musical theater kind of guy, but New Yorkers will do anything to lure him. And in this economy, Broadway producers will do anything to hype their shows. With that, we bring you the cast of “Promises, Promises” singing about all the good reasons to come to New York.…

  16. Who LeBron meets with and when

    Jul 1, 2010, 1:38 PM EDT

    Just so you are not in the dark about LeBron James schedule: Thursday: Nets and KnicksFriday: Heat and ClippersSaturday: Bulls and CavaliersSunday: Fireworks and barbecue Okay, we have no confirmation on the Sunday part, although we feel good about it. But the rest of it has been confirmed by Chad Ford and others. Ford adds…

  17. Winderman: The negative campaigning to get LeBron may backfire

    Jun 30, 2010, 5:27 PM EDT

    This was supposed to be a relatively simple process when it came to recruiting LeBron James: Sell your wares and build fears about how the Cavaliers simply have not done enough for James for him to remain in Cleveland. That was the notion back at the start of the season, when the Cavaliers were the…

  18. The power struggle going on around LeBron

    Jun 29, 2010, 4:17 PM EDT

    It’s about influence. And power. Influencing LeBron James decision on where to play next year, because it will add or subtract to the power of someone around him. Earlier today we talked about how it is better for William Wesley if LeBron James moves on from Cleveland. However, for Maverick Carter and LeBron’s high school…

  19. Are LeBron's friends and advisors really looking out for LeBron?

    Jun 29, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

    The LeBron James situation has gotten so crazy that Bodog — the online gambling site that you tell your girlfriend you never visit — has taken down the odds down on where LeBron will land. It’s all too unpredictable for bookies right now. Unpredictable in part because what is going on close LeBron is unpredictable.…

  20. Your latest LeBron rumor: He and Bosh to Miami with Wade. It doesn't work, yet…

    Jun 28, 2010, 7:46 PM EDT

    UPDATE 7:46 pm: ESPN salary cap guru Larry Coon blew this idea of Wade/Bosh/LeBron out of the water tonight. Here were his comments on twitter: If they re-sign Wade, waive Jones & renounce all other FAs, they will have $27,596,027 cap room. Bron/Bosh are $16,568,908 each. So one or both of them would have to…

  21. Ownership and coaches, LeBron James has a lot to consider

    Jun 28, 2010, 2:32 PM EDT

    At some point, it’s going to come down to just him. LeBron James sitting in a quiet room (or laying in his bed or wherever he does his best thinking) and weighing all the options. Then making a choice. But there are a lot of variables in front of him. One is ownership — he’s…

  22. It's not just you, NBA executives think LeBron will be a Bull, too.

    Jun 27, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    You watched the draft day moves by the Chicago Bulls, saw they freed up almost enough room for two max guys to go along side Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah, and you thought, “That is where LeBron is going to go.” You are not alone. According to one NBA executive who spoke with the New…

  23. LeBron James not going on recruiting tour

    Jun 25, 2010, 7:29 PM EDT

    Remember talks of LeBron James going on a nationwide tour to be wined and dined by the teams and cities that wanted him? Yea, not so much. All meetings with teams will be at a neutral site, James’ right hand man Maverick Carter told ESPN’s Chris Broussard. “LeBron is not going on a tour,” Carter…

  24. Quote of the day, how conflicting rumors get started

    Jun 22, 2010, 12:44 PM EDT

    “Right now Wes is talking out of six sides of his mouth.” –One anonymous general manager, about what CAA employee and LeBron insider William Wesley is doing right now on the LeBron James and Chris Paul rumors (as tweeted by Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain Dealer).

  25. Bulls have come late to the LeBron party, at least in LeBron's mind

    Jun 11, 2010, 1:54 PM EDT

    Right now, Chicago is the leading non-Cleveland candidate in the LeBron James sweepstakes. We think. LeBron isn’t talking, and neither are the people really on the inside of the circle (and if they are it’s not to reveal anything, just to gain leverage). So there’s a lot of Kremlinology going on, and a lot of,…
