Cavs and LeBron ARE Talking

by Ryne Nelson

The Cavs unwillingness to discuss communications with LeBron, and James’ lack of involvement with the Cavs coaching search fueled prognostications that LeBron and the organization stopped communicating.

But as Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports, that doesn’t mean diddly.

According to both a team source and a source close to James, the Cavs and the two-time Most Valuable Player continue to be in contact. Both sides said the communication has been standard for the off-season.

James has met face-to-face with team officials recently, and the Cavs’ front office has been in regular contact with Leon Rose, James’ agent.

The Cavs have been in contact with all of their potential free agents, including Shaquille O’Neal, Zydrunas Ilgauskas and Jawad Williams.

LeBron is merely doing his due diligence. Asking questions and doing research on the other teams is proper business. To assume he’s lost interest in the Cavs is ignorance.

The fact that an article had to be written about LeBron’s (still open) communication with the Cavs says it all about Cleveland’s frenzy to re-sign LBJ.

LBJ is not gone, people. He’s just out, for the time being.

    Who cares, he is listening to his mom and some people from his sorry More than a Game movie that had to be played on MTV. Man, first Lebron had the worst ratings in that NBA finals with the spurs, now his movie bombed. Maybe because he can’t be in a puppet commerical with Kobe anymore. Kobe cookies are too many for Lebron to look at. HA HA HA!!!

    The Cavs are straight f*cked. No coach (with awful prospects), no center, no PG, no good SG, and old soft PF with a terrible contract and LeBron who’s shown he can mail it in no matter how good the talent around him is. And then he wonders why no one wants to come to Cleveland to play. Granted, he’ll re-sign a 3-year deal which will put pressure on the Cavs to win right now aka “trade for old players to keep our baby from crying” and once again won’t come close.
    It’s over.

    I like LeBron now. I hope he wins. Just not for the Cavs. How can you cheer for a city that treats a basketball player with such reverence. LeBron is The King, not God.

    I’m a Knicks fan. Would love to see Lebron and someone else sign here, but he won’t. As a second choice, I’d love to see him re-sign with the Cavs, but Anton has a point. Cavs are even MORE limited to making moves than the Knicks are at this point. And that’s that the Knicks basically have no draft picks in the next two years. That said, The Knicks should re-sign David Lee to a max (he’s EARNED it!) and sign Joe Johnson or wait till next year to sign Carmelo. Then we’ll be a mediocre team for the next 8 years.

    LeBron will stay a Cav.

    Only someone that doesn’t understand a bit of the game can’t understand that.

    LeBron is going to be like Kobe, stay in 1 team throughout your whole career…..

  • AL29

    Come on, SLAM. Give us some more stories about the Celtics and their future. Lebron hasn’t won anything yet, so who cares what he does.

  • The Philosopher

    @AL29: The world cares what The King does. THE WORLD.

  • Stillballin

    Team up with dwade and Amare!!!

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    As a fellow Knicks fan, co-sign O. Although I’m still willing to abandon all basketball sense in order to keep a smidgen of optimism that maybe LeBron or Wade will come to the Knicks. Or maybe Amare.
    But seriously, keeping David Lee might actually be better than signing Bosh, if we’re talking D’Antoni’s style. Bosh is a fantastic player, but I wouldn’t want to see him turning into Channing Frye with the 3 pointer…

  • LeBron James

    I’m the King, but I don’t have a ring. :(

  • http://www.slamonline.com/ The Promise

    Co-sign The Philosopher. He’s arguably the best player (not in my opinion, Kobe by a hair) in the world right now, so I’m pretty sure that AL29 is the only basketball fan in this country and the rest of the world that doesn’t care where he goes.

    Calling out MR. James.
    I for one don’t care about Lebron’s desicion’s this summer. A player must show first that he truly cares to win and gives it all despite his God-given physical talent,skills etc. Just like other legends who’ve won before him. They gave it their all whenever,wherever, and refused to lose. This guy didn’t show that this past play-offs.
    Regardless of who is around you, you must play in a way that other players who’s been around in the league longer than you will Respect you,your character,your game, your effin desire enough to want to come to your city and play with you. You suppose to be the king, your acting like your the freaking showgirl or sumthin waiting for his prince. Do this so your effing team owner won’t have a hard time convincing others to m!@#$%^^&* play with you. OR COACH YOU. your a cavalier. Where are your men oh king ? Lead them with example. Inspire them with your heart. So you’ll retire a champion. Build your legacy first before going on world tours and establish you mogulship. MJ has showed you before hand, everything will just come like peanuts, once you’ve shown em.
