Every team in the NBA wants LeBron James, and he knows it. So don’t bother with billboards, hype videos or presentations.
According to ESPN.com, James wants a low-key free agency process if he decides not to pick up his $35.6 million player option with the Cavaliers by the end of this week.
James had a circus recruiting process in 2010 with elaborate pitches from a half-dozen teams, including eventual sweepstakes winner, the Miami Heat. The process was more simple in 2014 as he met with only the Heat and Cavaliers in-person, while agents Rich Paul and Mark Termini took meetings with five other suitors (the Bulls, Lakers, Suns, Rockets and Mavericks).
But the fact is James Harden got better, he made his team better. His team is not the greatest team. Now they are, but he made them the greatest team.

James Harden is a great individual player, a better defender and he’s a little bit better moving his body. [He is] MVP hands down and he’s proven it time in, time out, World Peace added.
The guys are really pushing hard in the dugout but it’s just not happening right now, manager Ron Gardenhire said.
An intentional walk followed, and the go-ahead run scored when Chris Young hit into a force play at third base. Tanner Scott hit Martin Maldonado with a pitch to force Cheap Jerseys Sunglasses in a run, and David Fletcher capped the uprising with a two-run single.
It was good clutch-hitting that inning, Scioscia said. I think the biggest hit there was Albert.
The Angels lost six straight before coming to Baltimore, and now they appear to have their mojo back.
Whenever you can grind out runs late in the game to come back and win, it’s exciting, Fletcher said. It’s definitely something to give us confidence.
The Cardinals have been careening a bit. They have lost four in a row after winning four straight, a run that ended another three-game losing streak. They have lost 12 of 18 since peaking Cheap Jerseys To Design at eight games over .500 on June 11.
