The 2013-14 NBA season underway, and there are lots of interesting storylines to follow. Will the Miami Heat three-peat? Will the return of Derrick Rose make the Bulls serious contenders? Will Stephen Curry and the Warriors take the next step? Can Kevin Durant keep the Thunder going all by himself while Russell Westbrook recuperates? Will Tim Duncan ever get old?
These are all very good questions. And some people are asking them. However, a lot of other people have been preoccupied with this one: will LeBron James return to Cleveland in 2014?
Is it silly to let a question about the 2014 offseason dominate NBA talk at the start of the 2013-14 season? Yeah, probably. But you have to admit it’s a pretty damned intriguing thought, so the interest people have given to it is still pretty understandable.
Of course, no one can really say whether this will happen. However, we can say why it should happen. And that’s what we’re going to do right now.
Ready to go down the rabbit hole? Okay, then let’s get to it.
