After his disheartening loss in the 2014 NBA Finals, rumors are now beginning to swirl around Miami Heat superstar LeBron James. Here are the five biggest rumors surrounding King James.
For now this is a rumor, but I would not be surprised if it has some teeth towards the end of the month. Mark Jackson is seriously interested in coaching the Cavaliers, and with the No. 1 pick and Kyrie Irving able to take much of the scoring load off of James, this could be a match made in heaven.
It's no secret that James wants to play with his longtime friend Carmelo Anthony, and he would like for him to come to Miami. But it a long shot at best, given the Heat's cap space and Anthony's willingness to leave a lot of money on the table to join forces with King James in South Beach. I'm not saying it can't happen, but I am saying it's a long shot.
He may not voice it publicly, but I am willing to bet that one of the terms for James staying in South Beach is for the team to find a way to get Chris Bosh out of town. Bosh has regressed into a glorified role player, and if the Heat can convince Bosh to leave town, King James' feelings will not be hurt.
James has indicated that he is willing to take a discount to stay in Miami if the team can retool around him. But you better believe that if the Heat does not have a Plan A or B and is willing to walk into next season with him, Bosh and Dwyane Wade and some spare parts, he will not hesitate to take his talents elsewhere.
This is a complete rumor that has no teeth to it and will not gain teeth anytime soon. James has a ton of respect for Erik Spoelstra, and he does not want him to be fired. Let's put this rumor to rest.
