Cavs news: Chris Sheridan reports denials from LeBron James’ reps are disingenuous; they must lie to protect his image

LeBron James

On Wednesday afternoon, ESPN and Associated Press writer Chris Sheridan sent out a tweet that has garnered heaps of attention from NBA fans. Sheridan reported that Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James is “100% leaving” upon completion of the 2017-18 season.

Hold on. Let’s pump the brakes…

Within hours, several Cavaliers beat writers began refuting Sheridan’s claim, including Joe Vardon of cleveland.com and Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio and amicohoops.net.

“One source told Amico Hoops that the latest tip from a Sheridan source “swung, and missed by a mile.” Others strongly agreed,” Amico writes in his recent article.

Now, just one day after his tweet went out, Sheridan is rebuffing his stance, despite all of the naysayers. In fact, Sheridan claims that James’ representatives are just trying to “protect his image.”

During his introductory press conference in July, newly-appointed Cavs general manager Koby Altman stated that James remains committed to the team and the city of Cleveland.

“LeBron remains deeply committed to this organization, this team and this city,” Altman said last month. “His goal is to remain here and compete for championships.”

Whether or not James, who can indeed become an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2018, will finish his career in Cleveland can only be speculated on at this point. For now, let’s just enjoy the ride.
