Even if LeBron James never actually “returns” to play with the Cleveland Cavaliers, there are always going to be such rumors. And when he’s expected to opt-out and become a free agent in about a month and a half, it’s no surprise that they continue to pop up.
And those types of rumors fail to cease, even in the midst of an NBA Finals that involves one LeBron James.
According to ESPN Brasil (via LakeErieSports), current Cleveland Cavaliers player Anderson Varejao has already reached out to LeBron James about a potential return to Cleveland. Per the report, both players met and talked about the idea of his potential return to his hometown.

It’s not known when this “meeting” happened, or if it even happened. Nevertheless, it’s probably one of the most interesting rumors that I’ve seen LeBron James connected to when it comes to a potential return to Cleveland. Mostly because it actually has potential to be true. But even then, I have my doubts about this report.
Still, I think it’s highly unlikely for LeBron to leave the Heat. Much less elect to return to Cleveland. However, it’s still kind of fun to talk about.
