Rockets Fans Rejoice: LeBron Picks Cleveland

By Mike Mitchell

LeBron James is returning to Cleveland.

As told to Lee Jenkins of Sports Illustrated in a heartfelt letter published within the past hour, LeBron has decided to go home.

For the Rockets, this news is the first step to the dream scenario we’ve been outlining here at SCS this week. Will Chris Bosh be in the fold by the time you read this? It seems likely.

The Rockets still have roughly 48 hours to dump Jeremy Lin and his contract — likely on the Sixers, as we broke down yesterday — sign Chris Bosh, and match Dallas’s offer sheet to Chandler Parsons.

Now is not the time for analysis. Let’s watch the dominoes fall.
