The message boards at CavFanatic, the largest Cavaliers fansite, are currently an apocalyptic wasteland, where not even hope will sprout through the salted earth. Here are some of the best comments, helpfully sorted into three categories:
"Just talked to Ahmad Crump[ed note: guy who riles up the crowd at home games at the price is right auditions. He says LeBron isnt going anywhere. 100% guarentee.
I dont know about you guys, but I feel that if Ahmad says it, its gotta be true. Go cavs!"
Lebron don't want to go to Wade's house, i rather see him in James house. As for Bosh now in a few years, when Heats don't win no title, he would say "I should of just go to cleveland...
Watch and see! Why else would the Cavs not do anything in the draft, Why else would they not make a major trade? do you really think Dan Gilbert would really sit back and not do Anything if he didnt know he was staying, thats what the hr is for, LeBron is going to shock the world tonight, Book it!
I was just checking out the home page of his site. Splattered with words like NBA, The King, MVP you can see a few "The Chosen One" Isn't that unique to Cleveland? What, the chosen one to leave, I don't think so. Why put that on there if he was leaving?
Call me CRAZY.....but this may be the closest thing to know he's STAYING :)

CAVS' fans I have been wrong before as I predicted an NBA title for the CAVS for 2 straight seasons and was WRONG!!!
But, here it is from my heart, and brain, and gut...I think LeBron will stick with the CAVS
Call me crazy, but ...

Omg would you people stop saying hes leaving! Dont buy into this crap he wont leave.
If he leaves........
We should collect 20,562 urine soaked LBJ jerseysand mail them to his new residence...........
Like I have already said. Replace the huge witness sign and replace it with a pic of Delonte and his Mom
If he leaves I will HATE him more then anyone I've ever hated in my life. I will hate him to the point where I would wish him personal injury and severe bodily harm. If he leaves he hurts more then a team... he can potentially destroy an entire region economically.
HE WILL MAKE A CAVS FAN STAND AND RIP HIS HEART OUT... AND I MEAN LITERALLY
I just hope he Chooses wisely (Cleveland)...If He Punks out and leaves I have a feeling that CHARMA will come back to haunt him and he will end up chasing shadows for the rest of his career...I hope he chooses right, because if he does not I will be CURSING his very existence (along with every other Cleveland fan) and he will never be welcome in Cleveland Again
I wish the worst luck in the world to LeBron. He can kill himself for all I care.
i hope you fail at everything you do in the nba from here on out. How dare you even think of leaving your home state your home city, your home period, to go play with players that care about weather, clubs, and women. i don't dont ever want to remember you. you made me play basketball i grew up on you, and to that i want to erase you from my mind.
I have a Jersey he signed for me and his rookie card....I will burn them both on UTUBE
Its his right to choose where he wants to go and so many people on ESPN or int he news or even here will say that there is no "right or wrong" decision, because we live in a culture void of "right and wrong." "If its whats best for his career, I can't blame him." Yeah, maybe, but let's be honest. It's the morally wrong decision. The right decision is to stay here. His purpose was Cleveland and still is.
MVP day n i quote "when i young i always wanted to put this city on my back and i will continue to that y'all remember this if he leaves hes not but a selfish liar i wouldn mine if he stay n try to win a championship n fail
Hey, at least we have one other solid front office, and win or lose, this is a football town. Before LeBron was here and long after he's gone. Always has been and always will be. Go Browns!!
leave or stay im probably selling my james memorbilla
Who do you think was the best cavaliers player history? Brad Daughtry? Mark Price? Larry Nance?
LeBron is dead to me. I've looked up to him these past seven years - and for what? First thing to go will be the giant fathead of him on my wall
about 4 yrs ago i went through a divorce... for weeks i knew she cheated on me and might be leaving, but held on to hope. she took me to lunch one day and told me she was gone. lebron has been cheating on us and now hes set us up for a 9:00 meeting to tell us that hes gone. it didnt make sense when my wife left and it doesnt make sense that hes leaving us. is it bad that im comparing and feeling just as bad about lebron as i did her? i mean, should i get a life?
