No coherent thoughts yet. Hard to type while my nose is bleeding.

(Edit) Now that my nose has stopped bleeding, here's 10 quick thoughts about Lebron returning to Cleveland

1. This is the 5th straight summer dominated by a Lebron storyline. 2010: The decision. 2011: Losing to the Mavs. 2012: Winning 1st chip. 2013: Repeating by the skin of his teeth. 2014: Losing championship, opting out of contract

2. This will be the first time in Lebron's career he's played with an elite point guard. Will be interesting to see how he adjusts

3. Since he's been in the league, Kyrie has been one of the NBA's most dominant 4th quarter players/scorers. Does he concede that to Bron?

4. WWDRFN? (Who will Drake root for now?)

5. Has a first year NBA coach ever had more pressure on him than David Blatt currently does?

6. I'll be surprised — shocked actually — if Dion Waiters is still on the team opening day.

7. "Team" fans have no moral ground over those who are "player" fans. They think they do, but basically they're just rooting for laundry
(that "laundry" line is from Chuck Klosterman, btw)

8. Adding Lebron to the Cavs current team makes them a 55 win team. Adding Lebron and Kevin Love makes them a 65 win team.

9. Sure someone has made a much better/smarter point about this, but I can't think of an athlete more in control of…everything they do, and more willing/able to exert that control than Lebron James. Whether you like him or not, he seems to be his own man, both aware of his legacy and the moment. Maybe a bit too aware, but that's another conversation.

10. That said, fuck Dan Gilbert today. Fuck Dan Gilbert tomorrow. Fuck Dan Gilbert forever.
