Cavaliers’ fans should not feel safe that LeBron will resign with the Cleveland Cavaliers. This breaking news comes from Stephen A. Smith who claims that Lebron’s inner circle suggests he could leave Cleveland during free agency. Apparently, LeBron is not too keen on the Cavaliers putting all the weight on his shoulders again and pressuring him to win a championship for Cleveland.
One of the things LeBron’s inner circle religiously says is that, “Yeah, he’s back, but don’t you think for one second that he’s going to sit idly by and watch the franchise take him for granted and put too much excess weight on his shoulders the way that they used to when he was in Cleveland the first go-round. Think that he’s permanently going to stay in Cleveland if you want to. Do not try him.”
Yes, he is committed to trying to bring a championship back to Cleveland. And it does seem to be something that he would never do again. But don’t rule anything out when it comes to LeBron James.
I’m not saying this. I’m telling you specifically what I was told by people close to him, and I’ve been told that for months.
What everybody close to him continuously reminds me of is, “Don’t you dare take this guy for granted or think for one second he’s trapped into staying in Cleveland just because he came back. Don’t put it past him to get so annoyed that he’ll leave again if he feels like he’s being taken for granted, ran into the ground and essentially misused.” That’s what they say.

This shocking quote from Stephen A. Smith suggests that LeBron could be on his way out if management doesn’t shape up. If LeBron left the Cavaliers he would not be able to take the PR hit and he would probably become the most hated player in all of sports, but everyone knows that winning heals everything. If LeBron left and won, there would be little people could say if he is holding up that championship trophy.
