If you live in or near Cleveland, that sound you heard this morning was the sound of half a million Cavaliers fans simultaneously creaming their pants when they looked at the morning paper. They then promptly sprinted to their closet LeBron shrines and knelt before their King, praying for his mercy.
That’s because LeBron James told the CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER that, hey, he might not even wait for that 2010 free agency that so many teams have sabotaged their rosters in anticipation of. James voiced the notion that he could conceivably sign an extension next year, and make the whole bidding war a moot point. But hold on here. There are some very good reasons to take this story with a grain of salt.
