LeBron James Watch 2014: Will The NBA's Most Wanted Free Agent Stay Or Go?

Posted: Updated:

It's time for The Decision 2.0. For the second time in his career, LeBron James is a free agent. Once again, NBA teams are doing everything they can to lure King James to their courts.

After announcing that he would be taking his talents from Cleveland to South Beach in July 2010, James led the Miami Heat four consecutive NBA Finals appearances and won a pair of championships. Along the way, he was twice named NBA MVP. But shortly after San Antonio handed Miami a 4-1 beat down in the 2014 NBA Finals, LeBron decided to opt out of his contract before going on vacation. Just like that, LeBron Watch began.

Will Heat President Pat Riley make sure LeBron stays in Miami? Will LeBron return to the Cleveland Cavaliers where his NBA career began? Scroll down for the latest updates on where James might end up.

All About The Letter?

Chris Broussard of ESPN The Magazine reported that the infamous letter Cavs owner Dan Gilbert wrote about LeBron James after "The Decision" in 2010 is one reason why it's taking so long for the four-time NBA MVP to make up his mind. Broussard wrote that a source said, "If it wasn't for that letter, this would've been done awhile ago."

The letter (in comic sans) had been up on the Cavs website for four years until it was finally taken down earlier this week.
