According to a poll on ESPN.com involving 48 National Basketball Association players that came out Monday, at least a few players have the notion that James could leave the Cleveland Cavaliers and make his way back to Miami, where he spent four seasons as part of the Big 3 era and won a pair of National Basketball Association titles.

The rested Wizards team, except Bradley Beal, who stayed busy in Los Angeles for the NBA three-point contest on All-Star Saturday night and above all, his first career NBA All-Star game. During his post-match interview, James made some interesting comments which has caused fans of the L.A Lakes to get their hopes up regarding a potential move by the NBA All Star.

If these new Cavs additions - both young and old - don't step up to the moment in the postseason, James may not even have a tough choice. In the 2006 All-Star match, LeBron had 29 points, six rebounds, and two assists, while his 2008 performance was his best with 29 points, eight rebounds, and nine assists.

LeBron is right. The Eastern Conference has had great teams. He likes things how they are. "I cut backdoor, Russ was driving, I saw the opportunity".

The typical argument for including more teams in the playoffs is that it gives more teams a shot at the championship because they underperformed for various reasons and in a lot of other sports, this proves to be successful. There's been dominant conferences throughout time.

No one can say for certain that Kylizzle caused the stock tank, but the coincidence in timing is well worth the mention. It added that numerous new features in the update had made the user experience more hard for Snapchat users.

James disagrees with the concept, mostly because it "changes the landscape of the history of the game".

You need a team behind you, a team that is talented enough, mature enough, and hungry enough to win.

"So there's an energy level going back and forth between the group, where they've elevated how they play", Bickerstaff said of the midseason reboot around James.

So as James enters free agency, the question becomes, what team can relieve some of the pressure off of James and bring him back to the finals? During the NBA All-Star weekend in Los Angeles, James began talking about his aspirations to win his fourth championship. If James were to remain silent about relevant social justice issues of our time, he would be neglecting to use his platform in a constructive way. James has praised Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball on a few occasions and the Lakers are looking to add superstar Paul George, so this could be added incentive for James to join. Depending on how it shakes out, the Heat might get a chance to try to spoil James' attempt at advancing to an eighth straight NBA Finals.

The New York Times reported that in his own remarks, James made reference to previous black athletes who had inspired him, men who had themselves spoken out on America's fraught racial politics and helped forge a path for successive generations of black Americans to follow, including Muhammad Ali, Jim Brown, Bill Russell and Jackie Robinson.
