As several organizations will begin to create cap space in order to make a run at securing LeBron James next offseason, basketball analyst Dan Dakich expects James to ultimately end up back with the Cleveland Cavaliers, his hometown team.
James played with the Cavaliers for seven seasons from 2003-2010. In 2010, James made a loud, and oft-criticized, "decision" to join the Miami Heat, a team with which he's won two championships.
Dakich says, "I believe that he [LeBron] will go back because he's from there, he loves it there, and it's not fake either. A lot of guys are fake with that."
Dakich believes that the allure of playing next to Kyrie Irving and recently signed free agent center Andrew Bynum could draw LeBron's interest next year. LeBron will be able to opt-out of his six-year contract with the Heat in 2014, and the Cavs are shaping up to be a top contender.
