Dwyane Wade on LeBron James: 'I don't have any inside information'

Dwyane Wade on LeBron James: 'I don't have any inside information'

The 108-85 loss to the Warriors on June 8 exposed just how inferior the Cavaliers are to Golden State, and that's with James on the team.

The Cavs not only look to be nearing the end of their run of dominating the Eastern Conference, but they have few paths to improve this offseason thanks to a bevy of large contracts and lack of attractive trade assets.

At the moment the list of suitors is limited, but it could grow before July as teams position themselves to acquire one of the game's most transcendent forces. "I'm excited to see how they come back next year", Durant said.

Because Paul let it be known to James Harden who let it be known to the Rockets who let it be known to the Clippers that Paul would be targeting Houston in free agency, potentially at the cost of Los Angeles receiving nothing in return.

When James' initial plan for a $200 million contract was foiled by an obscure rule under the old CBA, he helped the players union change that rule in the new CBA.

With the National Basketball Association free-agency period now just weeks away, teams are jockeying for position with respect to the top players available to sign.

Another frustrating Finals defeat has led some to believe James will look for a better basketball home, with better and smarter teammates.

LeBron may have been the one to talk the talk during his days with The Heatles and say, "not one, not two, not three, not four..." but now he's the key to stopping the Warriors from walking the walk.

I think most National Basketball Association analysts would acknowledge Steph got robbed of the 2015 Finals MVP when it was given to Andre Iguodala.

The next minute, as reporters prepared to pepper James about his forthcoming free agency, a massive and mysterious subplot emerged.

According to a person with knowledge of the situation, James wouldn't have worn the cast if his injury already had not been reported. It frustrated many fans, who saw it as Durant taking the easy road to a title, and upsetting the competitive balance of the league.

It could benefit the Cavs in other ways, too.

The Golden State Warriors, of course, went on to sweep the series in four games, something they might have done if James had been 100 percent healthy or not.

Cleveland can offer James more money - a five-year, US$209 million contract - than anyone else, but the larger issue is what it can do to improve a roster that's now short on title-winning performance.

And there's also the delicate matter of James' rocky relationship with team owner Dan Gilbert. "(If LeBron leaves) they start over. Rose recognized the Cavaliers will need to make a substantial offer to keep The King in Cleveland, even if it means flirting with the NBA's rule prohibiting active players from holding an ownership stake in a team.
