The NBA Twitter world was buzzing late last night when ESPN's Chris Broussard tweeted, at 10 pm eastern time, that the Cleveland Cavaliers have "replaced Miami as the frontrunner to land LeBron James."
This came after the same segment of the net spent Sunday tracking the private plane of Cavs owner Dan Gilbert, which, the hoopheads deduced, had flown into Miami.
Such is the madness of NBA free agency in today's always-connected, free flowing-info world. But if you think thousands of people spending their Sunday night and early Monday morning getting excited over a LeBron rumor based off an anonymous source is crazy -- you ain't seen nothing yet.
Caroline's Cupcakes, a small bakery in Ohio, posted on its Facebook page that they hear -- from their sources, of course -- that LeBron James going back to the Cavs is a "done deal."
Well, then, what's Pat Riley doing wasting his time meeting with James this week? Did he not get the info from Caroline?
