No need to photoshop LeBron in a different jersey.

Chi-Town, the Big Apple and South Beach will have their hearts on the floor when the King decides that he will not reign anywhere else.

There is not an overwhelming reason why LeBron will leave his home.

The main argument of course is that he needs a ring to be mentioned even in the same sentence as Michael Jordan, who had a couple by Lebron's current NBA tenure.

But, New York and Chicago haven't been exactly gunning for a championship the last few years.

As for Miami, the real pull there is Dwayne Wade, who might not even be back in a Heat uniform.

The bottom line is this; these teams do not give James a significant higher chance to win the ship.

May I remind you that all three leading teams to pull LeBron from Cleveland didn't make the second round of the playoffs, the Knicks not even making it?

The Cavs have made it clear that LeBron has been the face of their franchise since he was a rookie.

James is not going to find more loyal fans than the ones in Cleveland, since he's from there.

Hell, if he goes anywhere else, I don't think he'll be able to cross Ohio state lines without a full on motorcade.

And LeBron knows that.
