    So, where does he go?

    To hell, for all I care. I mean all he did in four years was four straight trips to the NBA Finals. Poor baby.

    I suspect when all is said and done, he'll wind up back in Miami.

    It's clear once again that Lebron has hijacked The NBA from it's owners.
    It would be a real Machiavellian move on the part of Reilly to leave
    Lebron hanging and go out and sign Carmelo and a few top mid level

    I think we'll get a pretty good idea where LeBron's head is based on what Bosh and Wade do.

    If they think LeBron is leaving, I'm guessing neither exercises their option. I could be wrong about Bosh, maybe he can get max $$$ on the open market, but there is no way in hell Wade can.

    If they both opt out, it's probably a good sign they think (or know) that he's coming back and they're going to re-do their deals so they can bring in some depth or God forbid make a run at Carmelo.

    I'm guessing he signs a deal with Miami where he can opt out after next season. I think the only other options would be either LA team or Cleveland.

    The only thing we know for certain is that the Greenwich Boys & Girls Club is gettin' PAID.

    It's addressed in the story, but it's assumed James will demand a max contract. Obviously, someone would give him one, but I wouldn't be surprised at all if he took less money if it means a team can sign additional free agents. Also, regular trades or sign-and-trades would allow other teams to join the LeBron sweepstakes.

    I would laugh my ass off if he decides to do: The Decision II.

    Oh no, whatever would LeBron do?

    The nerve of him to become a free agent

    There was really never any chance that he wouldn't opt out.
