LeBron James returning to Cavs? Don't count it out entirely

Like most people, I was a skeptic during the season when folks talked about LeBron James returning to the Cavs next season after he opts out of his contract with Miami and becomes an unrestricted free agent. It just seemed too absurd of a notion.

But I am starting to believe that the possibility exists, however remote.

Just for kicks, let's throw out a few "What ifs ..."

What if the Miami Heat lose to the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference finals? Or lose to the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals.

What then?

The Heat will not be considered a dynasty, because you need three consecutive championships to make it into the dynasty category. The Big Three will have the opportunity to return, but what if one of them wants to make it a four-year chapter of his career, then move on to the next big thing.

What if LeBron misses the hero worship that embodied his time in Akron and Cleveland? What if he wants to be loved again the way he once was?

What if the Cavs are willing to give up the No. 1 pick in the draft to acquire Kevin Love prior to LeBron's free agency on July 1? What if playing with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love is appealing to LeBron?

Just a few things to think about, as I discussed in this interview on the Bill and Grant Show on 106.7 The Fan in Washington, D.C.
