Rumor: Lebron to New Jersey?

by Angelo on May 21st, 2006

So the rumor goes that if Lebron doesn’t sign a contract extension with the Cavaliers this off-season, he’s going to New Jersey after the 2008 season.

I believe this rumor is exactly that, a rumor. With the Cavaliers’ post season success, I seriously doubt Lebron would want to leave. Lebron just isn’t that type of a player who would abandon his team for more money. And there’s no way the Cavs would allow their franchise player to bolt for another team. They’ve learned from the Carlos Boozer incident all too well.

    Maybe Lebron is more of a gentleman than one would give him credit for. Not like others who are in the game for the “funds” of it. Errr….fun?

    Lebron is not leaving Cleveland and New York, L.A., and Chicago just wish that because their teams are not doing as good as the Cavaliers. July 1st that rumor will be crushed when Lebron signs the 5 year 75 million dollars contract. He doesn’t need more money he is set for life. Lebron is not that kind of person. His goal is to bring Cleveland a Title and he will not leave until that goal is complete. Even if he gets a Championship in Cleveland he will want another.

    Do your research, LBJ has said himself that he wants to become the first Billionaire athlete!… So moving to a major market sounds like an obvious step doesn’t it?
