Each Suitor's Potential Pitch to LeBron James in 2014

Wherever LeBron James decides to take his talents, a reunion with "Larry" will be the first thing on his mind.

Remember the hysteria created by LeBron James' first foray into free agency back in the summer of 2010?

That'll be nothing compared to what happens if James decides to exercise the early termination option in his current contract and becomes a free agent following the 2013-14 season.

Back in 2010, James was teeming with talent, but had nothing beyond two MVP awards to show for it. Three years later, he's a four-time MVP winner and, more importantly, a two-time NBA champion.

By now, the questions about James' ability in the clutch have faded into oblivion. He's the one who drained the championship-icing jumper in Game 7 of the 2013 NBA Finals, putting his Miami Heat up by four points with just under 30 seconds remaining.

That's why all 30 NBA teams will be lusting after James in 2014 if he does become a free agent. The best basketball player on the planet merits that type of universal fawning.

Five teams stand out above the rest in the quest to secure James' services beyond the summer of 2014: the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Chicago Bulls, the Los Angeles Lakers, the New York Knicks and the Heat.

Here's a look into how each team might sell James on what they have to offer.

Note: Teams are sorted here by alphabetical order, not the likelihood James will sign with them.
