LeBron James Did not Commit with Heat In Pat Riley Meeting

Here we are again with the "The Decision 2" where will LeBron take his talent next? LeBron James and Miami Heat president Pat Riley met last Wednesday July 9, 2014 in Las Vegas and he did not commit with the Heat.

While Miami courts LeBron, Cleveland Cavaliers are clearing cap space for LeBron, so they can offer a maximum contract. They had an agreement with the Brooklyn Nets for a 3-way team trade were Cavs will ship Jarrett Jack and Sergey Karasev to the Nets, and the Boston Celtics will get Marcus Thornton from the Brooklyn Nets and Tyler Zeller from the Cavs,and Cav's top-10 protected 2016 first-round pick. With this deal the Cavs will free up their cap space by $20.7 million.

I will call it! LeBron James will take his talent back to Cleveland to correct his past mistakes and help the Cavs win a championship! I will respect LeBron if do this, do it like a man and built your own team and not take the coward path of teaming up with other stars in a Heat jersey.

Here are the other rumors:

"Luol Deng is right there in the popularity contest: I'm told Miami, Dallas, Atlanta, Lakers, Clippers and Chicago have registered interest." Sam Amick @sam_amick

"The ever-popular Kyle Lowry received interest tonight from Miami, the Lakers, Rockets, Dallas, and - of course - incumbent Raptors, I'm told" Sam Amick @sam_amick

"Clippers, I'm told, believe they have real chance of stealing Paul Pierce away from Nets now that Jason Kidd no longer coaching in Brooklyn" Marc Stein @ESPNSteinLine

"Sacramento, Charlotte, Minnesota, Orlando and the champs from San Antonio all calling, I'm told, about Brooklyn free agent Shaun Livingston" Marc Stein @ESPNSteinLine

Shaun will be a great addition on any team since he held his own in Brooklyn, specially when Deron Willams got injured.

About Lebron James, he no longer wants just to win it all now he wants tons of cash, LeBron James wants max salary.

Houston Rockets Wants LeBron James

Will LeBron James entertain the idea of building another big three in Houston, teaming up with Dwight Howard and James Harden?

According to League sources the Houston back-office is putting up something to make a hard push to get LeBron James in free agency on July 1, that is if LeBron opts out. However, if they failed to land James their second choice is Carmelo Anthony or Chris Bosh.

Someone close to James said that LeBron is thinking about his future and is willing to leave Miami if there's a better team that can accommodate him.

According to Howard Beck of Bleacher Report, the Rockets can trade Jeremy Lin and Omer Asik. Both of them have about $15 million in actual salary next season. Trade Donatas Motiejunas and Isaiah Canaan without returning salary. Waive some players that have non-guaranteed deals. Re-sign Chandler Parsons as a restricted free agent after LeBron signs.

Though he was included in the Texas A&M as a shortstop he has not played since he is more interested in football. He had not played baseball since high school.

Johnny Manziel Tweeted:

"Big thank you to the @Padres and @padresmikedee for selecting me in the MLB draft," "What a great day!"

Mike Dee, president and CEO of the Padres replied: "Best athlete on the board... #JohnnyBaseball."

Johnny Manziel was the first freshman to take home the Heisman Trophy back in 2012. The Cleveland Browns took him in as their 22nd overall pick in the NFL draft last month. He played two sports when he was at Tivy High School in Kerrville, Texas, namely baseball and football.

Miami Heat Routed the Indiana Pacers to Reach the Finals for 4th Straight Year

In the regular season the Indiana Pacers has been dominant, but still they don't have an answer for the Miami Heat in the playoffs.

After the win, Miami Heat is just the 3rd team in NBA history to reach the finals in four consecutive years. The Heat easily dismantle the Pacers defense and overwhelm them in the offensive end with a 117-92 drubbing of the Pacers in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference championship. LeBron James and Chris Bosh anchored the Miami Heat win with 25 points apiece.

In an interview after the game Lebron said: "I'm blessed. Very blessed. Very humbled."
"And we won't take this opportunity for granted. It's an unbelievable franchise, it's an unbelievable group. And we know we still have work to do, but we won't take this for granted. We're going to four straight Finals and we will never take this for granted."

Dwyane Wade and Rashard Lewis chipped in 13 points each for the Heat. Miami was trailing 9-2 in the first quarter but they got hot and produced 75 points by halftime.

Indiana Pacers was the top team in the regular season which was their goal because of a bitter lost in Game 7 of the East finals in Miami last year. It didn't work too well, maybe next year they should avoid game 6 in Miami too.

Paul George scored 29 points for Indiana, David West had 16 and Lance Stephenson finished with 11 points. The fans booed and heckled Lance Stephenson all night.

Miami Heat will have to wait for the San Antonio or Oklahoma City Western conference finals to see who will they be up against in the Finals.
