He is gone. He wants to play alongside players that can grow with him. Not just pieces that require him to do all the work
Do you actually think the Cavs are a playoff team without Lebron? This is where you slip up. The reason Lebron can validate joining a bad team like the Knicks is because he alone makes any team a playoff team. Pair him up with a 2nd max free agent and a young core of Galinari/Chandler/Douglas and you have a championship contender.
Not only do I hope he leaves, I think he'll leave. The allure of a New York legacy will be too much to turn down for someone with Lebron's ego and drive.
I ran out of time so just to finish up that thought: If Nets win the lottery and get Wall to go along with Lopez then a Russian Billionaire owner and his good buddy Jay-Z playing in Brooklyn more appealing. What about Soutbeach and playing alongside Dwade? New York and convincing his former teammate Carlos Boozer to join him or Bosh or Amare?
The cavs have caved to everything Lebron wants. The worst thing that could have happened to the Cavs is when they made it to the finals against the Spurs because it sped the timeline up and instead of building a core they started trying to get pieces. Maybe he stays because he loves playing in his hometown and they are contending and maybe the grass isn't always greener on the otherside but in this case I think it is.
