If you happen to be a Cleveland Cavaliers fan, life is pretty good right now as the 2014 NBA draft approaches as the team holds the first overall pick and now, there is word that LeBron might consider coming back to play for the Cavs.
In an article written by Mary Schmitt Boyer of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, she notes a hearsay story of Anderson Varejao on ESPN Brazil NBA Finals telecast talking about a discussion that he had with LeBron to comeback to Cleveland:
Marcelo Urbano, a recent journalism graduate — and Cavaliers fan — in Brazil, was at home Thursday night, watching the pre-game show for The NBA Finals on ESPN Brazil. Cavs center Anderson Varejao was a guest on the program.
According to Urbano, the commentators asked Varejao if he believes LeBron James will come back to Cleveland. The answer so surprised Urbano that he began to tweet about it @cavsbrasil: “Andy just declared on ESPN Brazil that he ask LeBron about a possible comeback, LeBron told him that they will talk later about that.”
“Andy said he would not hide that he actually talked to James about it,” Urbano said. “He said that happened during the season when LeBron was in [the] Q Arena. Andy did not specify whether it was on Z’s night (March 8 when the Cavs retired Zydrunas Ilgauskas’ No. 11) or when the Heat was playing the Cavs. He says that he asked LeBron about a comeback. LeBron’s response was that they would talk about that later.”
Was that a serious talk noted by LeBron or was it a passing comment? I guess we will have to wait for now.
