Now that LeBron James is officially coming home, the content of his new contract, like everything else, is under the microscope

 

 

According to ESPN, LeBron James has signed a 2 year deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers for $42 million. He also has the ability to opt-out of his two-year contract after next season.

But wait!

What about the letter? What about finishing his career in Cleveland? What about inspiring kids in Northeast Ohio? 'Decision 3' 2015??

Not exactly, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN this contract has nothing to do with leaving Cleveland. "He structured this deal in such a way that he can sign another deal in 2016 and potentially make a lot more money long term. ... It was made very clear his intention is to remain with the Cavaliers long term." And it seems the sports world doesn't doubt James' intentions with CBS writing, "James wouldn't dare leave Cleveland" and USA Today adding, "this is a business decision and not an opportunity for James to test free agency again." Windhorst goes on to say, the new max contract for James in 2016 could be worth upwards of $80 million based on a new TV deal expected for that same year.
