LeBron James has decided to opt out of his contract with the Miami Heat. Some Heat are surprised and disappointed by the news while many LeBron fans are already ready to claim the team he goes to as their new favorite.
However if you follow basketball, you, you shouldn't be surprised by this news. Opting out was the best basketball decision for LeBron. It gives him two options.
1. He could leave Miami for a better a situation. LeBron lacked helped in the Finals and could bolt for a team like Houston which would put him in a better situation to win now. Harden and Howard would be an upgrade over a hobbled Wade and flaky Bosh.
2. He can redo his deal with the Heat which will allow his team to have more cap room in Free Agency.
My opinion: As tempting as the move to the Houston Rockets may be, I think he chooses option 2. LeBron will remain in Miami, and with the big 3 redoing their contracts, Pat Riley will find the King some additional help. I can't see LeBron wanting another team under his resume and who would wanna leave South Beach if you didn't have to? What you YOU think? Comment below on where YOU think LeBron will land.
