When it comes to LeBron and free agency everyone has sources or my favorite line “someone close to LeBron.” Some are good, some are bad, and you should take everything with a grain of salt.
I am not by trade a news breaker, I am an opinion giver, but when I do break news my record speaks for itself, I don’t try to BS you guys unless I know I am sure about something (See Drake’s baby or Jerry Jones saying he’d cut Cowboys players for kneeling during anthem).
Stephen A. Smith likes to say he gets “after hours” calls with his scoops, I just get random stuff throughout the day, some of it is trash, some of it is solid, and a few days ago I got something solid.
It isn’t a source close to LeBron; it is a source close to Savannah James, LeBron’s wife. The information doesn’t tell you which way LeBron is leaning, but it will tell you, in the end, this decision is all about family.
Here is what the source had to say.
“This decision is all about their kids, not so much the little princess, but the two boys. They feel the boys high school years are very important to their development, both on and off the court and because of their fame want to keep them as grounded as possible.
They are deciding if it is best to have the boys stay in Cleveland where it is much more smaller in scale, but puts them in a fish bowl because they are the most famous kids there or is it better to move to LA where celebrity kids are the norm, so they will blend in more with their environment.
What is best for their development? Putting them for lack of a better term in the Kardashian lifestyle when they are young, so they might be more equip to handle their celebrity status when that get older or is it better to shield them from that for as long as possible, which you can do in Cleveland.
Savannah and LeBron are great parents and while this decision does have a lot to do with basketball, it has more to do with the future of their family.”
This isn’t groundbreaking stuff, but just gives you more information on the mindset that LeBron and his family are going into as they start free agency.
