Miami Heat forward LeBron James is officially a free agent, but there has not been the same feeling in the air to his second round of free agency as it was in his first go around four years ago. As many are saying, James believes that the Miami Heat is his best option and that he will likely stay in south beach with a max deal heading his way. However, there is one team that believes that they can bring King James to their team, you can call a homecoming. The Cleveland Cavaliers still plan on giving James a pitch to bring him back on home.
Many teams are now back tracking away from pursuing to signing James because the thought everyone's mind is that the plan is for James to re-sign with the Heat and Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade to re-sign as well with a pay-cut to bring in more talent. The Cavaliers are still holding out hope that James will come on back. As we all know, James began his career with the Cavaliers with being taken with the first overall pick in the 2003 draft.
There in Cleveland, he took the Cavs to the postseason leading them to the NBA Finals once and also leading the team to the best record in the Eastern Conference on a few occasions. He was born in Akron, Ohio and vowed to bring a championship to the fans of Cleveland at some point. It would be a true heart-warming story for James to return back to his old stopping grounds and bring that title on home. However, we do not live in fairytale land, but in reality.
If with Cavs superstar point guard Kyrie Irving signing a huge contract extension and with the teams having better pieces, then the ones James was on, the Cavs are still the same team that has missed the playoffs every year since James' exit. They are a nice and upcoming team, but at the stage of his career, James isn't looking for that. He looking to win now, especially with the bitter lost from the San Antonio Spurs still like a black cloud above his head.
James is looking to build on his legacy and win titles. Even though it would be nice for him to come on back home, the best opportunity for him to achieve all that he wants to achieve, plus more is to stay where he is. An already built team that has hunger in their eyes and a bad taste in their mouths that they surely will like to get rid of.
