Lebron never planned to leave all along. It was just a big game the whole time.
No other situation currently looks good enough for him to leave. He know's how good he has it and Cleveland. He doesn't know how other organizations are ran.
Lebron and his friends are hometown boys. They like the idea of being in a big market but how well it would work is another question. Lebron and his marketing firm LRMR pretty much run Cleveland and Akron.
I think they know home is the best place to build LRMR. They know everything they need to know about Akron and Akron has been good to them.
The truth is this was just a big charade from the jump. These other teams can boast bigger star names but they cant boast a good team and organization like the Cav's can.
Also let's face the Cav's are not that far off from a title. They still have a nice nucleus i think they are just 1-2 players off.
They have a good owner who has shown he will go to great lengths to surround Lebron with talent.
Also with the recent hiring off Byron Scott that is another feather in the Cav's cap. He has said he plans to run an up tempo offense which is most likely music to Lebron's ear's. He's also preached there is nothing like winning a title at home.
Chicago has a good team but they have a rookie coach. One of LeBron requirements was a coach with head coaching experience and also one who has played in the NBA.
Miami has a good organization but they gutted their roster and Lebron doesn't even know if Wade is coming back let alone if he would think about going there.
New York doesn't really have an attractive roster but if they can obtain Amar'e Stoudemire that gives Lebron something to think about.
New Jersey has a decent roster and a decent coach. I think its still just unknown what he would be getting himself into.
The Clipper are the Clippers a team in shambles with no head coach.
Through it all i think it was just to much to leave home and how good he has it with the Cav's for teams he seemingly doesn't know how it would work with.
I think the allure of winning a title at home is too much for Lebron to pass on. There really is no place like home.
Lebron acting as if he would leave Cleveland for another team was nothing "More Then A Game" all along.
