With Lebron having the ability to opt out of his contract this year and become a free agent, speculation has been rampant. I have my own idea of what I think would be the perfect scenario and I plan on laying it out here. The Miami Heat are out of their prime, they struggled at times this year and have relied on Lebron to bail them out on multiple occasions. This is the first year that Lebron has looked fatigued toward the end of the year. Even if the Heat win a championship this year their supporting cast and star players will have a very difficult time making another run at it next year. With that being said, the best scenario for the Cavs is if the Heat DO NOT win another championship. Losing this year will stop their attempt at a 3-peat which both Michael and Kobe have achieved. This will also prove that The Heat are too old to continue winning championships.
Right now excitement is at an all time high thanks to the Cavs winning the draft lottery for the third time in four years. It seems as if the basketball gods are looking down upon Cleveland and making up for the debacle that was "The Decision". Thank you basketball gods, but in order to get Lebron back we have to trade that pick and we have to get a star player. With the draft class being as loaded as it is this year the number one quick is valued very highly, David Griffin said he had people calling about it as soon as it was announced. Kevin Love doesn't want to be in Minnesota, he wants to win championships and the TImberwolves are terrible. Minnesota knows he isn't going to sign an extension so why not get a boatload of players back from a player your going to lose in a year. If the Cavs offer the number one pick, Dion Waiters, and Tristan Thompson the Timberwolves would be crazy not to accept. This would automatically make the TImberwolves better and the Cavaliers more appealing for Lebron.
If these two things happen Cleveland is now a very attractive option for Lebron. He doesn't have to wait for a young player to develop and he has two stars in Kyree Irving and Kevin Love to play with. Cleveland would be primed to win championships for the next 4-6 years with those two options and Lebron. This would allow for Lebron to continue his quest at winning as many championships as possible and bring him back to his home team. No matter what anyone in Ohio says, they would welcome Lebron back with open arms. In my opinion Lebron has always had unfinished business in Cleveland and coming back and winning championships would elevate his legacy to the next level.
