Highly coveted NBA free agent LeBron James has yet to announce his plans for next season, but a pair of cryptic photos has some fans convinced that the four-time MVP has already made a decision.
At roughly the same time that James was scheduled to meet with Miami Heat team president Pat Riley on Wednesday afternoon, ESPN radio host Jorge Sedano tweeted a photo of a pair of “Exotic Car Transport” moving trucks that were allegedly parked outside the Florida home of the pro-hoops superstar. A second photo showed the trucks from a different angle.

The moving truck photos have received over 7,000 combined retweets, as fans speculate that they're proof that James has decided to leave the Heat in favor of a new contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers. However, Ethan Skolnick, a Bleacher Report journalist who once covered the Heat for the Palm Beach post, disputed the meaning of the images. “I can say this now, unequivocally: LeBron James moves his cars every summer,” Skolnick wrote on Twitter.
However, there is evidence that James is close to a decision. A source told ESPN’s Chris Broussard that the 29-year-old won’t meet with any other NBA teams and will consult with friends and family before making his choice.
