Well it seems the talk of LeBron James leaving the Cavs when he becomes a Free Agent comes up everyday or at the very least every other day.

ESPN's Daily Dime kind of puts a little finishing touch on the topic until the actual time comes around when teams will be legally able to open negotiations with LeBron without having any tampering charges laid.

What the Daily Dime is saying is there are way too many variables that are in play and with, not only the fast pace of NBA play, the fast pace of transactions, events, unhappy then turning happy superstars, and the ultimate factor an NBA ring. Just think about last year before the Gasol deal was made and the Lakers were not only riding the typical temper tantrum being thrown by Kobe. The Lakers were in a midst of a falling out with the superstar until winning cured everything, which it usually does. Now, the Lakers are winners and contenders for the NBA title for the foreseeable future. Therefore, Kobe is happy.

So, if LeBron wins a championship with the Cavs and ownership is reasonable and responsible and maintains a core group of guys that will surround and be a supporting cast for LBJ, you might see the exact same thing happen with the Lakers and Kobe...absolutely nothing. LBJ will be happy and content with his situation in Cleveland.

My point is, lets try and stay away from the talk about James moving towns because so many things can change from now until the Free Agency period begins for 2010. Even though it is, as a fan, very fun to talk about where King James might land.

Oh by the way, did anyone think about the other 2010 free agents? Think Bosh, Dirk, Amare, and Joe Johnson.
