This is really no shock to me. I have always thought that people make a bigger deal out of LeBron leaving than they should. He has always been a loyal guy, and would New York really make him that much more more money? The bigger question: does he really need any more fame or cash? He had $100 million in contracts before he played a game in the NBA. Here is his rumored quote that he told Trevor Ariza:
“Trevor asked LeBron if he would be in Cleveland after next season,” the source said. “And LeBron said, ‘I’ll be there. Of course, I’ll be there.’”
Update: Sources close to LeBron are denying that he told Trevor Ariza that he would be staying in Cleveland.
Not sure why Ariza would lie about this, but this shows this is just the beginning of the LeBron James circus that could last all next season.
