The player generally regarded as the NBA's best has decided to opt out of his contract with the Miami Heat, his agent tells ESPN. The move makes him an unrestricted free agent, and while it doesn't guarantee he'll leave the Heat, it seems sure to set off another summer of breathless coverage about his potential destination.

Within a few more years when soccer becomes America's number one passtime, people will say, "I remember having heard something about a LeBron James."

Don't be a hater on LeBron. Anyone would go where you get the most cash for your talents. America, maybe the world has become one big greedy place. Woman want their designer handbags and $1500 shoes and men want their Ferrari's. The way it is.
