Everything appears to be pointing towards another Cleveland exit for LeBron following next season.

It was just last month LeBron James skipped the ESPYs to watch Lonzo Ball make his Summer League debut with the Los Angeles Lakers. That confirmed to me that he was seeking another team other than the Cleveland Cavaliers. Now, an NBA insider is confirming the LeBron’s departure for real.

So who is Chris Sheridan and why does he matter? He’s a reliable veteran NBA reporter for one. Also, he’s the guy who first broke the news that LeBron was heading back to Cleveland when he left Miami three years ago.

Yeah, Cleveland. It’s officially time to panic.

LeBron and Cavs owner Dan Gilbert still despise each other, just as they did the first time LeBron left Cleveland. It’s also unfortunate that, for some reason, Kyrie Irving has had a falling out with the team and is demanding to be traded.

Carman is right, a lot can happen in a year. But it’s not looking good for Cleveland.

On the bright side, LeBron got them at least one championship — which is one more than they ever had in their entire history as a franchise.
