Where will LeBron James go? Any guess is only a guess
A company that transports luxury, exotic and vintage vehicles showed up at LeBron James' Florida home and maybe, possibly loaded a couple of James' cars on to a truck.
The Internet, specifically Twitter, went wild searching for meaning.
It must surely mean James is leaving the Miami Heat. Why else would he transport cars? Of course, there could be a logical answer. Perhaps James annually loads his cars and delivers them to his Akron home, where he spends time in the offseason. He needs a car while there, right?
Even after James met with Heat President Pat Riley on Wednesday, there still is no answer. We've reached that point in a high-profile NBA free agency summer where tea leaves and decoder rings are the best ways to find answers.
And the NBA loves every minute. Three weeks after the Finals and two weeks after the draft, the NBA remains in headlines. It's great theater.
Former NBA commissioner David Stern often professed his love for the "unscripted drama" the league produces. How much of free agency is scripted or unscripted is not known, but the drama sure is compelling.
The Magic 8-ball when asked if James is headed back to the Cleveland Cavaliers replied, "Signs point to yes."
Asked again, the Magic 8-ball said, "My sources say no."
When any little thing seems to mean something, everything probably means nothing. While the NBA world is waiting to hear from James, any bit of information leads to speculation.
Where will James end up? Back with the Heat ... or back with Cavaliers.
