“Windhorst first met James in 1999, when the player was a freshman at St. Vincent-St. Mary High in Akron. Like James, Windhorst also attended St. Mary’s and the reporter’s mother, Merrylou, taught health and religion there. “I like to joke that she taught LeBron sex ed, and she also taught that to me, too,” he said.” [Richard Deitsch – SI]
“Kevin Garnett talked about getting out while you can, but guys like Tim Duncan and Kobe Bryant have stayed. Bryant wanted to leave the Lakers a couple years ago, but he sure looks happy there now. Paul Pierce never left Boston, though things were pretty bleak at times. He seems happy.
For every example of a guy leaving and finding the pot of gold, there are more who stay and are even happier. (Heck, at this point, Shaquille O’Neal looks like a vagabond.)” [Pat McManamon – Fanhouse]
Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora wrote on the Playmaker Mobile website that James should avoid New York. “Personally, I think he should stay in Cleveland. I will say this, if he does come to New York, don’t have a bad game. Not one, because Knick fans will come down on him. It goes both ways.” [Marc Berman – NY Post]
