The wait is over LeBron has made his mind up and decided to return home to Ohio after much speculation over the last few months it heated up over the last few weeks. The Cavs set themselves up nicely for this and can add a few more pieces to this young team. Check out the SI article which is explained in his words about everything below.

The NBA Lockout Heats Up

The NBA lockout talks continued yesterday, in what could be the beginning to the end of the NBA lockout. But it’s what took place during the meeting that has everyone talking. Source says that at one point, NBA commissioner David stern was emphatically directing a comment – and pointing his finger – at Miami Heat All-Star Dwyane Wade. Wade would interrupt Stern, reportedly saying “Don’t point your finger at me. I’m a grown man. I have children.” The meeting broke at that point with players like Lebron, Wade and Melo threatening to leave the talks early. Stern reportedly sought out Billy Hunter, Players Association executive director, to say he wanted to apologize to Wade. A short time later, the session resumed. Stern, in attempt to do damage control, backed off his reference to canceling the season if no strides are made by tomorrow. Both sides will resume battling today at 10 a.m.

 

CBS The Eye On Basketball Elite 100

CBS recently released its top 5 to the its Eyes On Basketball Elite 100 list. Their goal was to create the best ranking of players based on total value, which consisted of everything from respect, status and upside to statistical production and intangibles. Three NBA bloggers ranked every player, then they took the averages to determine their rankings.

This list in my opinion is all screwed up, who the hell was responsible for the release of this list? After his finals performance I don’t think Lebron should be #1 on this list, heck I don’t think he should be above Dirk or Wade at this point. Kobe’s a little low for me but I am a Lakers fan so I’ll just accept the ‘hes aging argument’. Blake Griffin in the top 10 is just ludicrous, as well as putting Pau and Amar’e higher than Melo and Deron Williams. I also feel Deron is a better PG at this point his career than Russell Westbrook but an argument can be made for both. Kevin Love at 18!? Your joking right? Andrew Bynum got a very generous 25 considering his injury troubles and inconsistent play (did I say I was a Lakers fan? Lol). As the list goes on it gets worse with guys like Joakim Noah and Andre Iguodala making the top 30 be for players like: Rudy Gay, Danny Granger, and Gerald Wallace. Take a look at the top 40 let me know what you think. Heres the link to 41-100 on the list:  http://www.cbssports.com/mcc/blogs/entry/22748484/31276005

  • At 62 Elton Brand above Brandon Jennings (66) and Devin Harris (72)
  • Danilo Gallinari is too high at 73 for me.
  • JJ Reddick at 96 above Ron Artest (97) and Brandon Roy (100)

Lebron gets dunked on in Taiwan

Lebron James was recently in Taiwan as part of his agreement with Nike. Somebody should have told him to bring his game and some effort on the trip with him. The video shows the Taiwanese player lunge and knock the ball away from James, leading to a dunk on the other end.

The King Returns To Cleveland

It’s finally done and over with, Lebron went back to Cleveland to play his former team and was still dancing, still did the opening powder act, and still proved he is the king of the throne.

Now if the Heat can play like this against teams with winning records maybe they’ll make it to the finals and possibly win one.
