Caution! NBA Free-Agency Misinformation is Lurking
There are multiple reports out there citing sources "with knowledge of the situation" that point to LeBron going to Miami. And they very well may be true. But the sources seem to hinge on calls the James camp has made to various and players about who would want to take a minimum salary to play with the potential Big Three in Miami, and to various teams about trading Beasley for complementary players. My response: of course they would do this. No way LeBron jumps ship without knowing what he's getting into, and among Cleveland, Chicago, and New York, Miami is the most mysterious. I chalk this up to due diligence and not anything of substance. Be cautious when believing these reports.
