It’s foolish to overreact to every LeBron James comment from now until he hits free agency in a couple of weeks. The Heat season only just ended, he’s got some thinking to do, and has a strong comfort level in Miami. Still, his lack of commitment to re-upping is growing more noticeable and intriguing by the day. From ESPN.com:
James, Wade and Bosh each have two seasons and at least $40 million remaining on the contracts they signed in 2010.
“There is a conversation that will be had between the three of us — I think that’s only right,” James said. “We’ve earned that for each other. I don’t know what Dwyane right now is thinking. I don’t know what Chris is thinking right now. We’ll see what happens.”
“I don’t need to hear anything,” James said of what he expects from his meeting with Riley. “I understand what this franchise brings to the table. Like I said, I’m not at that point right now. When I get there, I will be ready to talk about it.”
