He's going to retire and go play minor league baseball for a couple of years.

He needs to win a few championships before he can do that...

Maybe he could revive NFL Europe

Well, it won't be Cleveland, I'll tell you that much.

I really hope it's Cleveland. I'm not much of an NBA fan, but I'd just feel bad for those fans if he left.

In baseball and football there are compensatory draft picks when a free agent above a certain level leaves... is there anything similar in basketball? Would Cleveland get anything if LeBron left?

Newark/Brooklyn, you heard it here first. Okay I give them a 15% chance, but I think the new owner is going to go all out to win.

Cleveland would get absolutely nothing.

Now, they can do a sign and trade to another team, if LeBron forces them to- but fairweather Cleveland fans will not look favorably on a team that just traded LeBron. But that's the only way the Cavs would get something for him (if he has to leave).

Why would LeBron agree to a sign and trade? Isn't he just hurting the team he's going to? Is it because Cleveland can sign him to a larger contract and then trade him?
(sorry for my ignorance of NBA cap rules)
