Waiting for LeBron James to make up his mind
No decision from the Akron native -- and former Cleveland Cavalier -- on whether he'll stay with the Miami Heat, come home to Northeast Ohio, or take his talents elsewhere

In The Region:
The sports world is still waiting to see if LeBron James will return to Cleveland this fall, or sign with another NBA team. 

Thursday was the first day the free-agent – and Akron native – could officially sign a new contract. It was also 4 years to-the-day since James announced he was leaving the Cavs to sign with the Miami Heat.

Recent high school grad Jay Ventura was one of dozens of fans lining up outside of James’ Bath Township mansion Thursday afternoon.

“He may not be here coming home right now, but I just want to be here. This is something I'll always remember. When he left, I was hurt at first, but I'd have to get over it. As a player, I love him to death. I love watching him.”

Two police cars were also on-patrol in the neighborhood, which had cleared out by 9 p.m. Fans are not the only ones awaiting a decision from LeBron James. Other NBA teams will have to sign players and clear salary cap space based on where James ends up. He’s reportedly in Las Vegas at the moment -- headed to Brazil on Saturday morning -- with no plans to return to Akron or meet with any other teams.
