Definitely not Cleveland

Now that Lebron has opted out of his contract with Miami, speculation runs rampant over where he’ll end up. New York? L.A.? Miami after all? I don’t know where he’ll land, but I do know where he WON’T go: Cleveland.

Ever since he left Cleveland, I’ve been puzzled by the persistent rumors that he might return. Not because of Dan Gilbert’s unhinged “open letter” – although that didn’t help any – but simply because of Lebron’s trajectory. He is a man bent on hegemony. He has no interest in glorifying his provincial birthplace. This doesn’t end with a heartwarming reunion, it ends with Lebron, high atop the mountain, alone. A shooting star doesn’t return to orbit. Lebron isn’t going back to Cleveland.
