There doesn't appear to be any ESPN specials this time around, but Lebron James' free agency still has people talking.
The four-time NBA Most Valuable Player reportedly set an announcement for 3:30 p.m. ET. That speculation has taken many people to Twitter, waiting for any type of news.
James' official website, lebronjames.com, has also been crashing and running very slowly Thursday afternoon. Some have even speculated that the site has been dropping hidden hints about the two-time NBA champion returning to his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers.
Chris Sheridan, an NBA writer for 25 years, reaffirmed Thursday his scoop that James will return to Cleveland.
The largest contract James can sign is for five years, $130 million with his team of the last four seasons, the Miami Heat. The Cavaliers recently cleared up cap space to make room for James.
Again, police officers were told to EXPECT and be prepared for a 3:30 announcement. But no NBA sources confirming at moment.
