Lebron James has just announced he will return to the Cleveland Cavaliers and take his talents from South Beach back to northeast Ohio. This is a major power shift in the NBA and definitely in the eastern conference. The Cavs instantly become a better team than the Heat are and now Miami has alot of things to handle as they will likely lose Chris Bosh as well. Hit the jump.
When news that Lebron was going to allegedly announce his decision yesterday broke, fans who live near his Cleveland area home rushed to be on the scene. It’s not that they expected to see Bron, they just wanted to feel apart of something. Yesterday we showed you how the scene outside his home looked with crazed fans. Later however there came reports of car accidents outside the home with all the traffic on the street! Somebody’s insurance just went up while trying to see what Lebron would do only to have another day pass with no announcement. Nobody was injured but I bet people are mad at themselves today!

Dan Gilbert’s infamous letter about Lebron James back in 2010 after he left Cleveland for Miami might still come back to bite him in 2014. According to reports even though time has passed and people feel different about the situation, it appears Lebron has never forgotten about Gilbert’s reaction and that quite possibly could be what is holding up his decision this time around.

Skylar Diggins handle on the court is top shelf compared to most other point guards in the WNBA. A defender found that out the hard way this week when she tried to stop Diggins from a fast break and wound up laying on her back looking up at the ceiling of the arena while Skylar buried a jumper to make it worse!

Fans are in a frenzy over Lebron’s decision and they just can’t handle it. After a “source” broke news yesterday that Lebron planned to announce his plans via his website LebronJames.Com at 3:30 pm, fans rushed to the site. The problem was even if Lebron really was going to do that nobody would of been able to see it because the website crashed due to the onslaught of unexpected traffic. Many fans hoping to read what he decided to do only got to see the main page of the site continue to “load” or even worse got a server error! Luckily for fans that rumor was totally untrue as we still are waiting to see what the King will decide to do. Hit the jump.
Phil Jackson might have a “good feeling” about Carmelo returning to the Knicks but he wouldn’t be able to tell you that for sure because he hasn’t heard from Melo himself! In reports that came out yesterday, Phil is saying he feels confident that he made a connection with Melo and thinks they are on track to re-sign him but the same reports say Phil has been texting him and getting no reply for close to a week. That may be the reason the rumors of Melo giving strong consideration again to joining the Bulls after it seemed Chicago missed their chance. Hit the jump.
Did Joseline Hernandez from Love & Hip Hop Atlanta have her twitter account hacked? She has been going off today and it seems things are not well between her and Stevie J. She has been airing dirty laundry all day on twitter but people have been skeptical that she was hacked. Usually when someone is hacked the tweets are deleted soon after, but in this case the tweets are still there almost 12 hours later. She threw Kevin Durant & James Harden under the bus amongst others when she tweeted that she f*cked both of them and even tweeted a screenshot of her DM’s which had KD in there telling her he liked her hotel suite. Now to be fair we all know you can’t believe everything on the internet and images can definitely be altered or seem different than what they are. Hit the jump for the pics.
Everyone in the U.S. wants a piece of Tim Howard now after his ridiculous performance for team USA in the World Cup. Even though they lost to Belgium, the effort he put forth in that game was monumental and literally was history making. As he returned home he thought he was done for a while having to make saves until a fan got too close and Howard had to block him. He did it smooth though to not disrespect the fan. Hit the jump.
Joel Embiid might have not played an actual NBA game yet, but he may have a career in comedy if basketball winds up not working out for some reason. The 76ers rookie big man who was just taken with the third overall pick in the draft has been on a mission via twitter to recruit Lebron James to join the Philadelphia 76ers. He has been tweeting at him for days and receiving no response from Bron. Apparently today he had enough of being ignored and decided to let the world know he is blocking Lebron on twitter. The funny thing is a few minutes later he tweeted that he needs Rich Paul’s (Lebron’s agent) twitter account so he can just work with him. The young kid is definitely funny and he needs that sense of humor as he recovers from an injury that will prevent him from making his debut until later in the season. Hit the jump.
It is being reported that world class boxer Amir Khan was arrested yesterday after hitting two different men. Reports said that neither of the victims were seriously hurt, with injuries to a cheek and a leg, according to police. They were apparently acquaintances of the boxer, although a direction connection was not established. The details so far as sketchy at best as nobody really seems to know why Khan hit the men and who they really were to him. The only fact so far is that he was indeed arrested and charged.
