  • LeBron James: Why Miami Heat Star Won’t Dare Join the Los Angeles Lakers

    A LeBron James-Kobe Bryant Big Two sounds good on paper and makes for savvy media sound bites.

    Salary cap aside, I can think of three reasons the Miami Heat star won't ever leave South Beach or sign with the Los Angeles Lakers when the 2014 NBA free agency season rolls around.

    Another Cleveland Cavaliers debacle is sure to happen

     This maniacal debate was set in motion recently by ESPN's Stephen A. Smith, who said this about the possibility LeBron leaves the Miami Heat when he becomes a free agent: "At Least 50-50 he leaves Miami."

    Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of the outspoken and usually dead-on sports prognosticator. However, I've dug deep on this one and respectfully disagree with his forecast on LeBron James' future.

    Remember "The Decision" on July, 8, 2010?

    Ordinarily, I'd leave it there, but this argument deserves a little debate before the last rites are given.

     Back then when James sat in the chair on live television and shocked the world, the equivalent of a zombie apocalypse followed.

    Cavs majority owner Dan Gilbert joined the anti-James movement by writing an "open letter" about LeBron's shocking decision to bail from his roots to the glitz of South Beach.

    Gilbert referred to the then two-time NBA MVP's decision as "selfish," "heartless" and "cowardly betrayal," among other things.

    Current and former NBA players criticized his LeBron's move and at one point James acknowledged that race could be a factor in the fallout from his decision to move on from Cleveland.

    Who am I to feel this way, but I found myself feeling sorry for Bron-Bron. I thought he'd never recover from that public tsunami.

     Fresh off that prediction, others suggested when he does leave, the Lakers is a likely landing point.

    Imagine that?

    Kobe Bryant isn't built to share the big stage: Ask Dwight Howard

    Taken from a page of National Geographic and the University of Michigan, the Black Mamba snake is solitary and prefers to be alone.

    It's no secret that Kobe loves the stage in Tinseltown with the spotlight firmly planted on him -- and him only.

     The Lakers star bumped heads with Shaquille O'Neal, Dwight Howard, and perhaps a handful of others who chose to remain tight-lipped and just play the game.

    Rumor is Howard was so fed up with the attention given to the aging star -- and the lack of love given him -- he passed on $30 million to leave the circus show.
