Cavs have met with LeBron James’ reps, but his decision remains unclear

While that quote may only be relevant for Thunder fans, much of the almost two-minute interaction with George focused on the idea of pairing up with The King in L.A. and if George wants to play with James. "You got to question LeBron for that one". In the mind of Shaquille O'Neal, this would be a mistake.

In an interview with Ian Begley of ESPN, Shaq spoke about the end of his career, where he got "greedy" and "was trying to make quick stops to get [one last title]". O'Neal was traded from Miami to Phoenix during the 2007 season and spent the following year there as well. Thus, once it was reported Leonard's preferred destination is the Los Angeles Lakers, it didn't take long for the internet to run amok with photoshops of a potential National Basketball Association super team in purple in gold. "So LeBron's book is already set", O'Neal said.

Who knows if the Cavaliers would have traded for George if Irving still would have wanted to be traded, if IN would have actually completed the trade, or if George would have actually went through and committed to the Cavaliers, but IN hindsight, it looks as if LeBron James made the wrong basketball decision.

"Somebody told me a long time ago - they said your book is already set". You can add index pages toward the end, but your book is already set. That makes it hard for them to be a big player in free agency.

In 2014, LeBron James tweeted his fondness for CT point guard Shabazz Napier. His mentality now is probably: I want to get four before [Golden State Warriors guard] Steph [Curry] does. But if I was him, I wouldn't be trying to get four, five and six because it ain't going to matter.

James saw his losing record in the NBA Finals increase when the Cleveland Cavaliers were swept by the Golden State Warriors earlier this month, marking his sixth loss in nine appearances. It's just something else to talk about, something else to add to the pages. The Cavaliers could try to outmatch other organizations by offering their star a five-year max contract worth $205 million.

That means taking the best prospect at No. 8 or trading the pick for someone who can help LeBron win now.
