LeBron James

Despite his promises to remain in Cleveland, LeBron James’ agent has informed the Cavaliers that he will not exercise his $24 million player option.

James, who turns 32 in December, had until midnight Wednesday to inform the team of his decision.

The father-of-3 seems to enjoy making his fans sweat during the off-season.

“I love it here in Cleveland. I have no intentions of leaving,” James told ESPN during the Cavs’ championship parade on Wednesday. “There are some technicalities to take care of I’ll leave up to my agent. That’s right from the horse’s mouth.”

The NBA Finals MVP will begin considering offers from other teams when free agency opens on Friday, July 1.

James, who was spotted at JFK Airport on Tuesday, will likely sit down with the NY Knicks who recently signed former Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose to their roster.

Knicks president Phil Jackson is working with a $29 million salary cap that doesn’t give him much room to bargain with.

But Jackson can free up space under the salary cap to guarantee James a max salary of $30 million, and still court free agent Kevin Durant, if he unloads free agents Derrick Williams, Kevin Seraphin, Lance Thomas, and Langston Galloway.

James also opted out of his player option last season, but he re-signed with the Cavaliers and led the franchise to its first NBA title in his 2nd season.

Knicks fans are salivating at the prospect of James, Durant, Rose, and Carmelo Anthony playing on the same team.

A dream roster like that one would virtually guarantee James a 4th NBA championship ring.

  • mel

    Lebron James is a smart business man. He started this trend of signing two year deals with a option on the second year to receive higher salaries. The owners were keeping a lot of that extra money..now it’s going to the smarter athletes.

    Damn people get money and they just be wanting more an more of it. He already making bank off his shoes alone. I was mad when I heard Will Smith didn’t want to be in Independence Day because the money wasn’t right. Like bruh you going to get millions regardless smh.

  • HIS4EVA

    Every time I see him I wanna scream BRON! BRON!
    It’s good to keep your options open. I guess.

  • SunRiseBlossom

    I really would love to see Kevin Durant get a championship ring!!!

  • ChocolateChick84

    Bron will remain in Cleveland. He just trying to thumb thru that maximum player option check. He is one of the most business -savvy athletes on this planet, I wouldn’t expect anything else.

  • MissHarlem

    Ok and….I ask about my raise yearly regardless if one is given. I know my value and apparently so does he ? OAN I can’t wait to be on a beach somewhere not in the US with my drinks

  • ChocolateChick84

    Me too and he is so deserving of it! I hope he gets him one soon and very soon.

  • ChocolateChick84

    AMEN sister!! That’s what’s wrong with people these days, they don’t know their worth. If you don’t look out for you, then who will!?

  • SunRiseBlossom

    Yes he is!!!!

  • RespectSelf

    Someone working for a company asking for a raise is not the same as the third highest paid athlete in the world asking/wanting for more money.

  • Kiss

    He ain’t even loyal to himself

  • Kiss

    Go to the bulls

  • MissHarlem

    If you say. However we (us and Lebron)both don’t own the company that we work for so nothing wrong with attaining what you’re worth. They cash out on him way more than they pay. With him attaining more he can provide more such as the millions he spent to put children through school.

  • iWasteTime

    Please don’t bring your ass over here. You not ready for the NY media. What you trying to go from city to city to get a ring. Sat down.

  • goat

    That man ain’t going anywhere. He just won a title, he’d be stooopid not to go back to the negotiating table with that trophy in his back pocket.

  • lovelygamour

    I don’t think its about money. I think is about being famous and getting prestige. he wants to be respected.

  • goat

    I can’t blame the athletes one bit for wanting every copper penny for their families.

  • jussaying

    well, he was a main component of what made the first one so successful and has worked hard since 1994. why should he not fight to be paid for what he is worth? tom cruise, robert downey jr etc at al do…

  • jussaying

    he just brought them a championship. he should get a higher salary. when you are an asset to a company, you get a promotion…..

  • http://Copblock.org Brenden’s Back #BlockDeez?

    I kinda like the way Bronbron toys with us. Keeps us guessing…Got lots of folks ‘big mad’??? He came to a point in life where he realized them folks gone always be mad, no matter what…Might as well do as I damn well please?? I can dig it??

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    well, they burned him in effigy when he went to Miami, even though he’d been w/Cleveland for YEARS. then he came back and has now brought them a championship, so I wouldn’t call him disloyal just because he’s considering his options. any of us who are employees want the best employment situation available to us; why wouldn’t Bron?

  • nucynu25

    Yep..he gave yall what yall wanted but he doesn’t owe yall shit.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Salivate on because I don’t see that one happening. Me personally I’d rather see him link up with C.P & Durant (THEY NEEEDDDD ONE). Wouldn’t even be upset if Wade became a factor…don’t know how MUCH, but HEY a factor is a factor (saw that he’s testing the market too). The guys (James, Paul & Wade) are on vacay too, so wheels could be turning while sipping on a Mai Tai at some exclusive resort or some ish.

    So the athlete should not ask for more? Mind you, he does have a whole lot, but at the same time that’s his job. So if you want me pay me. It’s not his fault they pay them way more than they should make anyway. Athletes should not be paid more than doctors and teachers. IMO.

    I understand that. I guess I’m just thinking of the business of it all. In him getting more money, best believe someone else money is going to be messed up by it. And it usually isn’t the money of the owners. And knowing your worth isn’t define by money. But when you chasing more money, your not really concerned about the others. When I started my job, I negotiated a high salary than what they offered… And they laid someone off the month I started. But then again, I never wanted a “rich” lifestyle. I just want to be comfortable.

    i am half and half. i don’t think athletes should be paid as much as they are paid in comparison to doctors/teachers. however, doctors and teachers also don’t put as much wear and tear on their bodies as professional athletes do. athletes are more prone to injury – and the wrong one could end their career (and sometimes lives depending on which sport you are doing) so that is likely factored into the salary as well. also, they generate a lot of income for cities.

    It doesn’t even upset me anymore as it did a few years back (growing up & KNOWING the importance of a dollar). I NO longer expect LOYALTY from players when the TEAMS have NONE. They will CUT a mofo wit the quickness…let your numbers…production
    or ounce of drama occur even if it’s been your first incident or unproven & OFF YOU GO. They aren’t taking HOMETOWN DISCOUNTS (thee DUMBEST thing EVER), so why expect an individual (who can only play this game for a very limited time) do the same? My Advice: LOOK OUT FOR YOU & YOURS BECAUSE NO ONE ELSE FOR DAMN SURE WILL DO IT LIKE YOU WILL/CAN!

My mother told me years ago that she found out that her company was charging their clients $1500 and hour to do what they only wanted to pay her $19.50 to do. I still think her asking for more money is different from the third highest paid athlete asking for more.

    At the end of the day… I think you can know your worth and not be greedy. I don’t think that someone’s worth can even be defined by money. With that said, he’s being greedy!

    Labron has to look out for his family. That is his job as a husband and father.

He is top of his game and should demand the salary he deserves. Pretty soon he’ll me retiring… this game and age don’t mix.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I know LeBron would like to leave and do it all over again, he’s done it now three times, and walking away from Cleveland would land him in the house of ill-will with CAVS fans, AGAIN! But, I don’t see him retiring in Cleveland either, nor should he have to appease a ball club or fans that can turn against him so easily! I think one or two years with the CAVS, and he’s gone, and why not, If not this upcoming season (it would be shocking tho)! I could see him either in New York or LA (logistics and family) because of his production company, prospective acting roles, and his next level off the court!

  • Jozie723

    Actually Kobe made more money salary wise then LeBron this season… and they didn’t even make the pay offs. But in my opinion, what some one else makes has nothing to do with me. I just brought you a championship… I already had two… and I took a pay cut to get those (check… Chris Bosh was payed more then him in Miami). Not this time… you wan another one… the same owner who wrote a public letter shaming me and to the same city that was burning my jersey’s .. PAY ME.

  • jussaying

    that makes sense as well on the injury part. i just feel like athletes do bring in a lot of income for cities and also spawn a lot of job creation. if you have a franchise star, you are able to get butts into seats of events and it aids on the tourism front as well. i think they are grossly overpaid and its a shame they make more money than individuals that do public service, but when you weigh the financial profit of what having a Lebron James can do for your city versus a Nurse MaryJane or Dr Duke, I do see why they are paid more.

  • TheRealLee

    When Lebron was in Miami, people saw a caravan of his cars moving north and the wife twitted about “going home.” The kids got enrolled in Cleveland. Now he has a new home in LA and supposedly the kids are enroll in school. If he was going to leave Cleveland, the time is now. The championship gave him that freedom. I can see him rebuilding the Lakers by uniting with Wade there along with Whiteside and others.

    True Dat…He knows what he is doing….He is just trying to squeeze $2.00 more dollars out of Cleveland and land a Flammin Funyuns Deal….LOL…..

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    I don’t think so but if he did I wouldn’t be mad. Last Wednesday was an experience we’ve never had in Cleveland.

  • MocaPretty

    He brought them a championship so I think it’s fair to say that he can pretty much do what works for him
