Poll: Where will LeBron James end up?

vote

Paging Jim Gray, paging Jim Gray. Another decision is near, and we will bring out the capital ‘D’ if you agree to make the announcement on TV along with LeBron, who can recycle his purple checked shirt just for old time’s sake.

The end has arrived. Or has it? There is a good chance LeBron James is going to opt out of the final season of his contract with the Miami Heat, making him an unrestricted free agent.

question-mark-95X95

Even if you are not a fan of the Indiana Pacers or the Miami Heat, tonight’s Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals is Must-See TV.
