Last night, in San Antonio, Lebron James scored his 30,000th point becoming the youngest NBA player to do so. Over the course of the last few months there have been quite a few rumors circling about Lebron James’ wanting to join the Houston Rockets.
Bleacher Report, a trusted sports source, wrote THIS article talking about the possibility of it happening but the rumors seemed to only circle among Houston Rocket fans.
This morning, I received a text from my cousin who lives in Cleveland that the Lebron James trade rumors had begun to surface IN CLEVELAND, too.
Now, my cousin is not on the inside and was merely texting me what he’d heard around town amongst his friends and colleagues. He misspelled Clint Capela’s last name (which triggered Rocket fans, Capela fans & the grammar police) and after cross-referencing with our friends from SportsRadio 610 it appears THIS trade is impossible.
However, it would make sense that the general, suspicious public rumors would not be exactly right but the chirping is entirely too loud and it’s in both respective cities so there MUST be some sort of link, I’m hoping.
It all seemed like a pipe dream until I saw this tweet from Lebron:
Do you see what I see? A rocket after #StriveForGreatness sure seems to be a funny choice of emoji to add to the tweet. Particularly, since the last few days have been riddled with turmoil for the Cavaliers in the locker room.
Could this be Lebron’s hint that he’s coming to Houston? I believe.
