With the impending chance of LeBron James to explore a Decision Part II, media frenzy gets fever high over the minute details.
Miami Heat's LeBron James sits on the bench during a timeout against the San Antonio Spurs during the second quarter in Game 5 of their NBA Finals basketball series in San Antonio, Texas, June 15, 2014.
ESPN.com reported Savannah, LeBron James' wife, has caused uproar with a recent post in her Instagram account where she posted a picture of a map of Ohio with the words, "Akron," written across the image and a star to pinpoint the location of the city.
The same photo also included an interesting caption that said, "Home sweet home!! The countdown is real! #330." Many netizens and media personalities alike misinterpreted the posting as sort of an indication of his husband Miami Heat Star LeBron James plans to move back to Ohio where he started his career and played his high school ball.
The rumors were quickly squashed by sources close to the family clarifying the post and picture are referring to the summer vacation plans of the James' family.
The couple and their two kids usually hold their vacations in their summer home in Akron, which is also their hometown. The couple is also expecting another addition to the family. This time, it's a girl.
The four-time MVP is set to make $20 million next season if he decides to exercise the player option on his contract with the Miami Heat. He has until July 30 to decide if he will again test free agency where a lot of suitors are expected to line up. Among them is his former team, the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Speculation is ripe considering the Heat lost in dismal fashion to the San Antonio Spurs in five games the NBA Finals. LeBron declared he will consider the flexibility of free agency which he exercised in 2010.
He noted he will discuss his options first with the other Big Three members, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh, before he comes up with a decision.
