Though NBA rumors have been consistently shut down by LeBron James the previous months, his recent actions seemed to be speaking louder than his words, thus igniting once more the speculations of James leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers the second time around. Mike North of the Daily Herald is convinced that James will “bolt again” and leave the Cavaliers like he did in 2010.
Some NBA enthusiasts and reporters are claiming that James will likely ditch Cleveland, and with his recent actions, those claims are somehow substantiated. If you excessively round up the telltale signs for King James leaving Cleveland, then you may start with the cryptic messages LBJ recently posted in his twitter account.
“It’s this simple. U can’t accomplish the dream if everyone isn’t dreaming the same thing every day. Nightmares follow. #TheDC #SFG,” LBJ posted recently.
Such statements may mean many things, but when you add the fact that James recently unfollowed his team in twitter, then one cannot be blamed for viewing such actions from the angle of LBJ departing from his current team.
Mike North, likewise highlighted some speculations that LBJ “does not like some of his teammates.” And if you will be adding up the recent visit of James to Miami to see one of their competitors and former teammate, Dwayne Wade, then you might be led to believe that something is going on in the background. And in relation to the competition between LBJ and Wade, James has this to say:
“Yeah, I don’t care.”
It shows that James careless about the competition, and treasures friendship the more than it. According to Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com, James posted another message on his Twitter account “after his 9-minute session with reporters Thursday”.
“Can’t replace being around great friends that reciprocate the same energy back to you in all facets of life,” James twitted.
Considering all of his social media activities, it is tempting to connect the dots, but where it may lead to that we don’t know. Perhaps we would have to wait for a more conclusive tweet the coming days.
Apart from the social media logs that we have about James, it would also be good to review one of James’ motivation. LBJ is a kind of player who likes to win a title. And with the current situation of the Cavaliers’ roster, James might review some of his options in pursuance of winning an NBA title. And if he gets annoyed, then there is no telling on what he might do. Stephen A. Smith reminded us via ESPN radio courtesy of Hoops Habit that:
“What everybody who’s close to him continuously reminds me of is: ‘don’t you dare take LeBron for granted or think he’s trapped into staying in Cleveland just because he came back. Don’t put it past him that he’ll 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.”
Now with most of the cards lie in front, James’ social media activities, recent trips, and motivation included, will LeBron James go all in for the Cavs or will he fold and leave the team? It’s now up to you to connect the dots and speculate on its possible outcome. And always remember that rumors will remain rumors until actualized.
