Rumors are rife if the web that LeBron James plans to join the Miami Heat if the Cleveland Cavaliers wins the NBA Finals. According to Inquisitr, James could opt to join the heat nest season if James could give the Cleveland Cavaliers an NBA title. The 31-year-old power forward may well be on his way to take his talents back to Miami, according to NBC Sports.
King James has a chance to decline his player’s option in his two-year $46.9 million contracts with the Cleveland, but only if James could get the NBA title for Cleveland as what he promised when he joined the Cavaliers two years ago.
Reports said that there are already wild speculations James forming another superteam with his old buddies, Dwayne Wade, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul. LeBron James is arguably the most dominant player in the NBA today, and should probably decide on his future once he’s done doing business with the Cavs. There is certainty whether James would leave the Cavs and go elsewhere, but it would be intriguing to see him joining the Heat.
For many Miami would be the most realistic option for James because he already played for that franchise and has already established strong ties with the organization after helping the Heat to two NBA championships. The timing is great because the Heat has enough money for James. The Heat will only have a projected $36.6 million in cap space for this summer, and with Wade about to explore free agency, they now have enough money left on the table to lure LeBron James back to Miami Heat.
Regardless of the power forward’s loyalty to the Cleveland, James has already left them once and that he would probably do it for the second time. Miami is something for James and then there’s the strong bonding and court chemistry with Dwayne Wade.
In addition to James having close ties with Miami, he can also make more money because he can take advantage of the state tax laws. The Florida state does not charge its resident a state income tax, saving James in millions of dollars.
