Obviously, talk of "King James" departing Cleveland for the second time is nothing more than calculated speculation now.
The 73-win team that he rallied his Cavaliers from a 3-1 Finals deficit to beat added an MVP in Kevin Durant and it's no surprise Golden State is a win away from completing the first 16-0 run through the post season in National Basketball Association history. In the almost 30 minute chat, James, Green, 2 Chainz, and others debate music, culture, and sports. Both his wife and his mother were blunt about the idea of returning Cleveland, as James recollected in a NSFW quote.
"It's more of a bigger picture and it's more of ... all these kids, all these people that need inspiration, need a way to get out".
LeBron James says Cavs owner Dan Gilbert "completely bashed" him in that infamous 2010 letter about LBJ leaving for Miami. and Bron says it was so disrespectful, it nearly stopped him from returning to Cleveland in 2014.
Preds leaning on Rinne to force Penguins back to Pittsburgh
It's its own slice of the pie, and you've got to go out and fight for that slice every day and be ready to write that chapter. Pittsburgh beat Ottawa 7-0 in Game 5 here in the conference final, and found themselves in Game 7 double OT a few days later.
Apparently not everyone was "All In" on the decision by LeBron to return to Northeast Ohio.
James has addressed the letter in the past when he said he "met with Dan, face-to-face, man-to-man" and added that "we've talked it out".
"My mom was definitely like (expletive) that, we ain't going back", LeBron explained. "I believe I'm that way out". Murmurs have also begun about James' future in Cleveland, despite the fact that he's signed through 2018.
With the Cavaliers falling behind 0-3 to the Warriors in the NBA Finals, and the NBA Draft still a couple weeks away, what could spice things up around the league?
