Reports are leaning towards LeBron James joining Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami and leaving the Cleveland Money($30 million smackeroos), Cleveland Fans (Who are yearning like Cubs Fans for a title for the City. Period. — At least the Cubs fans enjoyed NHL titles, NFL titles and maybe even a little White Sox title action) and poor little Cleveland/Northeast Ohio Economy (Estimates have downtown Cleveland, which is on its heels from a poor economy and bad Indians teams, losing $20 million annually due to LeBron’s leaving)
If LeBron leaves to form this Tri-Fecta of Tyranny or Triage of Terror in Miami, then I denounce the NBA. I will go out and buy all the Kansas City Royals/Pittsburgh Pirates, Detroit Lions and Los Angeles Clippers, basically every team that has no money or chooses to spend very little money and therefore never competes with the created $$$ Oligarchy. (i.e. – NY Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Lakers, Dallas Cowboys… basically teams that spend all kinds of sick money in search of glory and legacies whether they ruin the integrity and fandom of the sport in their pursuit.)
Here is an article I read today from FOX Sports…
LeBron James move from Cleveland to Miami appears increasingly likely as the clock counts down to his decision.

Numerous reports Thursday morning said James is likely to join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh with the Miami Heat, a development that positions the team as an immediate NBA contender.
Newsday reported James was leaning toward Miami, and ESPN has reported James will join the Heat barring a change of heart before his scheduled announcement.
“I’ll be watching,” Wade told The Associated Press. “We’ve scheduled it. I’ll make sure I’m in front of the TV (Thursday) at 9 to watch like everyone else.”
Opting for Miami could cost James millions of dollars in salary. The Cavaliers could sign James to a six-year contract for about $125 million. Assuming he splits the available cap space evenly with Bosh and Wade, the most James could get in Miami would be five years and about $90 million. The difference is somewhat mitigated by the lack of a state income tax in Florida.
