LeBron James' agent Rich Paul has told the Miami Heat LeBron will exercise his early termination option.
Of course he is. Because that's what LeBron is really about. He abandoned Cleveland for more money and a better chance at an NBA title by joining an All Star team in Miami and now that they've won the title but failed to repeat, he is going to snub $20.59 million this season ($22.1125 in 2015) and look for more money around the league. He's not about loyalty or team-building. He's a hired gun who will go to the highest bidder with the best chance to win. Despite playing in an era where free agency dominates all sports, this type of team-jumping gives fans very little reason to respect him as a player. ANALYST: Howard Bender
