Irving Courting LeBron to Cleveland?

lebron and kyrie

The full court press is on for the services of LeBron James.  The Cleveland Cavaliers could be getting help from their newly signed star.  According to Fox Sports Ohio’s Sam Amico, Kyrie Irving is making a pitch to LeBron James about joining the Cavaliers.  Amico goes on to say that ESPN reported Irving saying to LeBron that the Cavs will get all the help he needs.  This could be a welcoming development in the race to sign LeBron James.  Irving can pitch to LeBron that the Cavs are a young team that can grow together and sustain winning for more years then the Heat can.  The Cavs’ biggest draws are their youth, cap flexibility, and playing at “home.”  The Heat have their two championship rings and Pat Riley to entice LeBron back to South Beach.

The battle to get LeBron has been a social media explosion.  There are so many rumors floating around about what he will do and when he will decide.  The only real concrete information is that LeBron will meet with Pat Riley in the next couple of days to discuss free agency.  After that, it is anyone’s guess (and I mean anyone) on what will happen after this reported meeting.  For now it looks like a two horse race for Lebron, Cleveland and Miami.  Many inisders have stated that the decision should come sometime this week, but no one really knows for sure.  All I can say is that we all hold on tight and keep refreshing twitter every second.

    Want to make a snide comment about Irving doing what James never did in CLE, that is recruit star players here. Is that true, though? There was that one rumor about James refusing to pick up Michael Redd from the airport. Want to believe that story, as it has a good beat and you can dance to it.

    I think it is a good thing if he is, but who else has he recruited?

    in fairness, maybe he hadn’t decided that he was gonna sign long-term here until recently. So recruiting people wasn’t his thang.
