Default Fox Sports: James not happy in Miami? Back to Cavs in 2014?

Quote:
Now, there is talk that James is less-than-thrilled with certain aspects of the Heat organization. Sources in Miami say that while James still thoroughly enjoys playing alongside fellow stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, he doesn’t particularly care for the heavy-handed and disciplined style of team president Pat Riley.

James can opt out of his contract at the end of the 2013-14 season, and speculation is he will strongly consider it if Riley remains in his current role. And the team James would be eyeballing most in free agency, say those close to the situation, would be the Cavs.

Of course, James has never indicated as much, and if he does feel that way, he is wise enough to not say a word. Anyone who saw the secretive manner in which he kept the Cavs guessing already knows that.

But if these sneaking suspicions are true, if James really does hope to make another free agent splash and return to Cleveland someday, he would have a lot of things to consider. First and foremost, of course, would be whether or not fans would be willing to welcome him back after so much time away.
Cleveland return in LeBron's future?

Better start clearing that cap space now. Lebron will be a Raptor in 2014, mark my words.

If he does, I am calling it a conspiracy, he left for a couple years so they can get a bunch of lottery picks, and the he comes back and they win a bunch of championships

He will if they win a title in Miami. Go to Cleveland to prove he can win it by himself.

I remember reading in Shaq's book how Riley was a total control freak. He would force players to get down to a certain body fat % (making them get on exercise bikes after every practice), which didn't fly with a somewhat lazy guy like Shaq.

Asked if he could play for the Cavs again, James initially paused before giving his answer.

“I don’t know. I think it would be great,” he said. “It would be fun to play in front of these fans again. I had a lot fun times in my seven years here. You can’t predict the future and hopefully I continue to stay healthy. I’m here as a Miami Heat player, and I’m happy where I am now, but I don’t rule that out in no sense.

“And if I decide to come back, hopefully the fans will accept me.”

James’ comments may have been calculated, coming one day before the Cavs host the Heat for the third time since the superstar’s infamous and messy exit from Cleveland. In mentioning a possible reunion, he may be trying to soften the negative response he’ll get Friday night from fans who haven’t forgotten what he did to them.

However, James appeared sincere when talking about a potential return to the Cavs, his fractured relationship with Cavs owner Dan Gilbert and topics ranging from phenom Jeremy Lin to rookie Kyrie Irving following practice on the fourth floor of Quicken Loans Arena.

In spite of everything that Gilbert and the Cavs fans said, you know that they'd be on board in a heartbeat.

Maybe it was their plan all along. Lebron agrees to leave, they get high draft picks, fix it with the league and have that kid at the lottery then wait a couple years while they develop those young players then he comes back and he has a proper cast around him. Sinister!!!
