I don’t even know quite how to say all this because it’s so weird, strange, fun and (sports) scary. The LeBron James to Cleveland rumor mill absolutely exploded on Twitter today.
Let me take you through it all.
Joe Lull started it off saying Dan Gilbert was heading to Florida.
Dan Gilbert refuted that saying he was in his back yard.
People started tracking a Dan Gilbert private aircraft that in fact did make it to Florida. With pictures!
Anthony Lima reported (and others confirmed) that Zydrunas Ilgauskas was on that plane.
Tom Withers said that the plane didn’t land at the airport it was supposed to land at and that some limos were at an airport with no plane.
Sam Amico started dropping big tweets.
Finally, everyone’s “favorite” insider at ESPN, Chris Broussard, adjusted his LeBron James leaderboard.
Oh, and in a non-Cavs bit of news, another Johnny Manziel picture showed up.
It was either the most fun day on Twitter or the worst depending on your perspective. I made the decision to just enjoy it regardless and we’ll see how it plays out. If you missed the day on Twitter, that ought to catch you up.
