LEBRON Opts Out of Contract with Miami Heat….

SO apparently this morning Lebron James informed Miami Heat, through his agent that he is exercising his early termination on his contract & will be a FREE AGENT as of July 1st. Where will he go? Will he come to LA? Did he leave because he couldn’t take the HEAT (pun intended)? Is he after his next ring? What are your thoughts on him becoming a FREE AGENT?

 

NY TIMES reports — Carmelo Anthony enjoyed the privilege of being the N.B.A.’s most coveted free agent for a little more than 36 hours. That ended Tuesday morning when it was revealed that LeBron James had informed the Miami Heat through his agent, Rich Paul, that he intends to exercise the early-termination option on his contract and become a free agent on July 1.

The news was not surprising — by opting out, James can explore other opportunities while putting leverage on the Heat to improve their roster — but it sent seismic tremors across the league, nonetheless. James, who has won two N.B.A. championships with the Heat, is widely regarded as the planet’s best player, and any team would love to have him.

The problem for most potential suitors, as is often the case amid the frenzy of free agency, is salary cap space. Most teams lack the financial flexibility to absorb the type of contract that James is sure to command, although he could be wooed by the likes of the Cleveland Cavaliers (his former team), the Houston Rockets, the Chicago Bulls and the Los Angeles Lakers, who have oodles of cap space and have yet to hire a head coach.

The Heat, though, remain the favorite to retain his services. James, 29, has made four trips to the N.B.A. finals in four seasons in Miami, and he seems to enjoy playing there.

The Heat’s most recent trip to the finals, however, was a bit of a disaster, as the San Antonio Spurs — executing their smart and savvy style of basketball — steamrollered to the title in five games. The series exposed some of the Heat’s flaws, including their lack of depth, and guard Dwyane Wade’s physical limitations.

By opting out, James can restructure his deal with the Heat to help accommodate more players. But much of that could also hinge on what Wade and, to a lesser extent, Chris Bosh decide to do. Like James, Wade and Bosh have opt-out clauses in their contracts. But unlike James, they have yet to inform the Heat of their plans.

James was due to earn $20.6 million from the Heat next season.

SPORTS: New Bears Receiver Brandon Marshall Accused Of Punching A Woman

I swear people will do anything to get 15 minutes of fame and/or some money. This chick, Christin Myles, is saying that Brandon Marshall punched her in her left eye during an altercation this past weekend. However, the man was just trying to get his wife to the hospital as she was hit by a bottle in the face. I am sure if the woman did get hit, it was not intentional!!!

LA Times reports — Brandon Marshall has been accused of punching a woman in the face outside of a New York nightclub over the weekend. The Chicago Bears were aware of the allegation when they acquired the receiver in a trade with the Miami Dolphins on Tuesday, the team said Wednesday.

“Both the Bears and Dolphins were aware of what occurred over the weekend,” Bears General Manager Phil Emery said in a statement. “We decided to move forward with the trade. We have high expectations for Brandon as a Bear.”

According to a statement from Marshall’s attorney, Harvey Steinberg, an altercation that did not involve either Marshall or his wife resulted in his wife being hit with a bottle. Steinberg said Marshall took his wife to a hospital to be treated for “serious injuries.”

But Christin Myles filed a police report Monday night saying Marshall hit her in the left eye during the incident at the Marquee in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood about 3:50 a.m. Sunday. Police are investigating the complaint, and Marshall has not been charged. Steinberg said his client hopes to “assist authorities” in clearing up the matter.

Marshall has been arrested twice for suspicion of domestic violence and was also involved in a 2007 fight at a Denver nightclub that eventually ended in the drive-by killing of former Broncos teammate Darrent Williams.

The Bears traded a pair of third-round draft picks for Marshall, a six-year veteran who made his third Pro Bowl last year with 81 catches for 1,214 yards and six touchdowns. The trade reunites Marshall with quarterback Jay Cutler, a former teammate on the Broncos.

Marc Anthony Parties with Will Smith for His Birthday

Despite rumors that  have been shut down by Will, Jada & Marc Antony…many gossip websites/blogs are still feeding off this ish…SMH as you can see here, Marc & Will are cool…if he was sleeping with Jada I don’t WILL could have his arm around Marc, let alone have a pre-celebration for Marc’s 43rd birthday on Friday.

Marc Anthony and Will Smith attend the birthday celebration for Marc Anthony during the Miami Dolphins vs New England Patriots in Miami Gardens, Florida (September 12, 2011).

Too FAB reports — Marc Anthony had an interesting crew inside his birthday celebration at a Dolphins game last night — including Fergie, Sean Kingston and, most surprising of all, Will Smith.

Marc and Will made a deliberate display of camaraderie on Monday amid rumors that Anthony had an affair with Smith’s wife, Jada — rumors both have adamantly denied.

Marc and his ex, Jennifer Lopez, are part owners of the football team — as well as Fergie, who sang the National Anthem before the game.

Fergie’s husband, Josh Duhamel, also attended the bash, as well as Pitbull, who sings with Anthony on his latest single “Rain Over Me.”

Sean Kingston Expected To FULLY Recover

Sean Kingston’s injuries from a Miami jet ski crash should be healed in about six weeks, two sources close to the hip-hop artist told CNN Tuesday. Kingston, 21, suffered a broken jaw, fractured wrist and water in his lungs, according to the sources, who both asked not to be identified since they were not authorized to speak to the media. A publicist for Epic Records, which distributes his music, issued a statement Tuesday morning saying Kingston was in “critical but stable condition” in the intensive care unit of a Miami hospital.

Cassandra Sanchez, 23, was riding on the Sea Doo jet ski with Kingston when it crashed into a Miami bridge Sunday night, according to an accident report from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Sanchez was also injured and hospitalized. FULL STORY
