Default Wojnarowski: LeBron sent private message to Dan Gilbert

http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news?slu...lbert _021712


Quote:
LeBron James came to Cleveland with an unmistakable mission this week, the beginning of a campaign to soften the fans and ownership on his desire to return to the Cavaliers in 2014. Free agency is forever on his mind, and James is determined to make his hometown want him as much he wants it again.

This was no accident, no misspeaking, nothing out of context. Before mentioning Thursday his openness to playing in Cleveland again, James months ago had an emissary or two carry that message to the Cavaliers’ front office, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. His camp wanted the message delivered to owner Dan Gilbert, sources said, but so far, the response has been silence.

The Heat play the Cavaliers on Friday night in Cleveland, and yes, LeBron has manufactured the drama of his return again. James can’t opt out of his contract until after the 2013-2014 season, but he understands that the Cavaliers would have to make a decision to hold back on its rebuild, preserve cap space, and wait on him all over again. He has to convince Gilbert to make the leap of faith, and that includes first working over the fans.

Wojo is SUCH A HACK. He has been very critical of LBJ and there is no one anywhere near James that would talk to him at this point. As such, its a terrible article and comically ridiculous.

LeBron is clearly trying to mend fences. Thinking this is anything more is crazy.

The campaign to take over the front page with Jeremy Lin and LeBron James related threads is going really well.

B*tch ass MODS deleted my threads but this comes down to LeBron knowing in 2014 Kyrie and Trsitan + 2012 & 2013 1st round pick will still be on their rookie deals and the Cavs possibly having the cap space to sign him... if they wait and don't use it.

I seriously cannot believe what I'm reading. Absolutely astonishing.

I believe every word of it, too. This guy is something else.

You'll come around. You always do.

LeBron being contrite is all I asked for. He's growing up. He misses home.

Psssssshhhhh...

Like I came around on Kyrie?

Oh, wait a minute... I wanted us to draft him as early as his first game at Duke. You ranted about him being an absolute bust.

You come around on that?
