Discussing LeBron James reporting with ESPN’s Colin Cowherd

colin

So I was listening to the Colin Cowherd show on ESPN Radio this morning, and he was totally misreporting what I have been reporting. Luckily, I have the telephone number to the studio, so I called Colin and he put me on the air. And from there, I put up with him trying to ascertain who my source is on my LeBron James-to-Cleveland story. And I held my ground. Rarely have I been under as much scrutiny as I am now after

PODCAST: Discussing LeBron on Cleveland Radio

cleveland

Only one Web site, my Web site, is reporting that LeBron James is returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers. There is some skepticism out there, which is only natural. When the mainstream media is not reporting something as fact, people have their doubts. And I am OK with that. But I am standing behind my story, which I did this morning on 92.3 The Fan in Cleveland on the Kiley & Booms show. This interview got a little testy, which also is OK for

As the whole world seemingly sits in suspense, awaiting The Decision II from LeBron James, a few shrewd teams have been hard at work, trying to improve their rosters. One such team, once thought to be in the hunt for one of the marquee free agents, is the Dallas Mavericks. Another team, the Houston Rockets, still awaits a decision from LeBron, as what he chooses will greatly impact the decision that Miami Heat teammate Chris Bosh makes—whether to stay in South

The Cleveland Cavaliers have cleared the cap space to make a max offer to LeBron James by trading Jarrett Jack, Tyler Zeller and Sergei Karasev (along with a first-round draft pick) in a three-way deal with Boston and Brooklyn. So one major impediment is out of the way. But as we head into the final 12 hours of the NBA’s signing moratorium, there remains a lot of skepticism that James will return to his original NBA team. I covered that topic at length

PODCAST: LeBron James to the Cavs?

James-Cavs

Lots of responses to my sourced story on there being a 90 percent chance that LeBron James signs with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Boggles my mind that people are shocked, given that LeBron is an unrestricted free agent. But people are shocked. That’s what makes July the best month in the NBA. Get a grip (sorry to steal your line, Pat Riley) by repeating to yourself this phrase: “LeBron James is an unrestricted free agent.” Here is more on LeBron-to-Cavs possibility, in interview with Spence Checketts

May: LeBron to Cleveland Ain’t Gonna Happen

Can we please put an end to the LeBron-to-Cleveland story? That’s all it is, a story, an unlikely narrative that might be appealing on the surface – the Prodigal Son Returns – but falls apart under the narrowest scrutiny. I say it ain’t gonna happen. Why would the best player in the game, in the prime of his career, sign with a team that can’t win? Why would the best player in the game, in the prime of his career, sign with a

PODCAST: How is Cleveland reacting to possibility of LeBron return?

Man Listening to Radio

Some very smart journalists and sports talk radio hosts have been downright dismissive of the possibility of LeBron James returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers. What part of “unrestricted free agent” did they not get? The LeBron story is front and center today because of the possibility that he might return to the Cavs. A plugged in source told me he believes that chances of Decision II being known as Redemption Night are about 75 percent. Naturally, this has folks in Miami in
