According to a new report, LeBron James might be willing to ditch David Blatt’s rebuilt Cleveland Cavaliers despite the intense scrutiny he would endure for leaving the franchise a second time. Chris Haynes of the Northeast Ohio Media Group wrote that Ohio’s prodigal son “won’t hesitate to make the appropriate business decision if it means bolting” from the team.
“James, who turns 30 today, has no intention of compromising his prime years playing for a sputtering organization. He can opt out of his contract at the end of the season and become a free agent,” he wrote.
After a hot start, the Cavaliers’ performance has languished in the past few weeks for an overall record of 18-12. If this trajectory holds, let the freakout in Cleveland commence.
