If body language is any indication, we can pretty much conclude that LeBron James won’t return to the Cleveland Cavaliers next season.
In what has already been the offseason of King James less than a week after his Cavaliers were swept out of the Finals, rumors and innuendo about his potential landing spot have come up at every turn.
For some reason, Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue thought he’d be able to avoid all the chatter after dining in West Hollywood Wednesday night. Sadly, TMZ Sports made sure this wouldn’t be the case.
In catching up with the gossip rag after a nice meal at Craig’s restaurant, Lue’s body language said it all when pressed about James’ future in Cleveland.
It really is something to behold.
That’s simply the look of a defeated man right there. Lue knows the writing is on the wall here after his team lacked competitiveness against Golden State in the Finals for a second consecutive year.
James already has one foot out the door and could very well be headed to Hollywood to play for the Lakers.
The good news? If Lue does indeed lose his job with the Cavaliers, maybe coach James will have an opening on his staff for the man.
