The Cleveland Cavaliers are pursuing LeBron James and a lot of that has to do (obviously) with what is happening in Miami. Well, try and figure out how the chess pieces move with this bit of information. Chris Bosh was supposedly willing to take less money in Miami, but now he’ll have to do it in the face of a rich offer from the Houston Rockets.
Sources: Rockets offer Bosh max deal of 4 yrs, $96 million. After weekend convo with LeBron and low offer from Heat, Bosh considering offer

I don’t know exactly what this would do to the situation. On the surface it weakens the Heat if Bosh leaves for Houston. At the same time, my paranoia is starting to set in and I wonder if maybe the Heat wouldn’t prefer one of the “big three” bolts so they can rebuild the roster with one less giant contract in favor of a couple smaller ones. Or, maybe LeBron wanted to play with Wade and Carmelo Anthony in Miami and Bosh leaving is a gift?
Again, this is just my paranoia. I’m really not sweating this. It’s fun.
Are you having fun yet? Are you tortured?
