He says fans are eagerly waiting to hear and will be ready to celebrate if LeBron does decide to go to Cleveland. Ruiter thinks the Cavs are a playoff team with or without LeBron.

Orlando Alzugaray, 640 Sports Miami, joined The B-Straw & Pauly G Show to discuss NBA free agency and the Heat. He started out discussing the meeting between LeBron and Riley today in Vegas and his thought on Riley’s best approach to LeBron. He said that Miami has the clear advantage over Cleveland in the quest for LeBron in multiple ways from location to a level of class they are known for. Alzugaray said the winning component for teams is battle tested veteran players, not young guys. He said if LeBron leaves Miami, he can see Chris Bosh coming to play for the Rockets because he won’t stay on without LeBron. Alzugaray says LeBron is the big domino and he will set off a long chain of events once he has made his decision. He thinks LeBron will make his decision in the next 48 hours.
Brian Geltzeiler, hoopscritic.com, joined The Triple Threat to discuss NBA Free Agency. He discussed the probability of a sign and trade of Chris Bosh to Houston. He thinks if Houston can get Bosh and keep Chandler Parsons, they would definitely be a big contender. Geltzeiler thinks a lot of the rumors about LeBron to Cleveland could be misdirects leaked on purpose when he really intends to stay with Miami. He thinks Rockets are in a very tricky situation with Chandler Parsons while they try to go after a superstar and keep him at the same time. He also briefly commented on player and management issues that seem likely at some point.
