    Default O/T: Apparently James Headed back to Cleveland

    Not a Detroit or Auburn Hills () story, but it does show that the Midwest isn't dead.

    James is giving up South Beach for a city which was once called "The mistake on the lake."

    A little 'sun belt --> rust belt' migration isn't a bad thing.

    CLE is getting the 2016 GOP convention and James. Not a bad week for that city.

    Just goes to show if you blow up a bridge with nuclear weapons you can still rebuild it in a day with a little groveling. First Guy Lombardo, now King James and his Royal Canadians.

    Guy Lombardo's band was called the Royal Canadians. The Cavs just drafted 3 Canadians the last 3 years - Tristan Thompson, Anthony Bennett and Andrew Wiggins - 4th, 1st and 1st overall.

    Let's hope the folks in Cleveland and Dan Gilbert forgives him.

    are you kidding? all the cavs message boards are in heaven right now. first they get the #1 pick in the draft last month (even though they had like 1% chance of getting it) and now they get back lebron. lucky bastards...

    as a pistons fan, this is not good for us. now we're stuck with him in the same division like we were with jordan and the bulls. hopefully van gundy gets things turned around or it could be a long long time before we compete for a championship.

    Cleveland is Lebron James hometown. He knows people there and basketball with his friends there. He will fit in just fine.

    What is the difference between Guy Lombardo and the Royal Canadians and a moose?

    On a moose, the horns are in the front and the asshole is in the rear.

    Lebron James left Cleveland in 2010. Dan Gilbert started investing heavily in Downtown Detroit around 2010. With Lebron returning to Cleveland will we start to see less interest in Detroit from Gilbert?

    The NBA Central division will be one of the toughest in the league. Chicago, Cleveland, Indiana and a young improving Milwaukee team. Detroit needs to step up their game. LeBron shouldn't have never left the first time.

    That has nothing to do with Gilbert's business interests in Detroit.

    It has nothing to do with Detroit either. I figured I'd make an attempt to steer it back that way, even if it was only a joke.

    I always thought if Gilbert really wanted the Pistons downtown he should swap franchises with Gore. Gore would have a more profitable arena and Gilbert could move the Pistons downtown while sharing marketing of the Palace with Olympia Entertainment. With Lebron back in the fold, there's no chance of that dream coming true.

    NP, didn't realize it was a attempt at sarcasm.

    Hmm... Cleveland-area media outlets may experience a positive bump.. Time to start putting in job apps...
