The Cleveland Cavaliers offseason news continues on in this crazy offseason.
From rumors of LeBron James leaving Cleveland following the 2017-18 season just days after the final buzzer sounded at the 2017 NBA Finals to Kyrie Irving demanding a trade.
On Wednesday, Chris Sheridan reported the following:
NBA source said today: "This will be LeBron's final season in Cleveland. He is 100 percent leaving. Relationship with owners beyond repair."

If this is indeed the case and LeBron James does leave Cleveland once again it would explain why Irving would like to be on the move also.
Sheridan is also the same person that said that LeBron would be returning to Cleveland before anybody else did in 2014 according to Dustin Fox.
Chris nailed Lebron coming back before anyone in 2014 too. https://t.co/T1z4X9N5Uc

LeBron has filled a huge void since returning in 2014. During the 2013-14 Cavs season the team finished with a record of 33-49, finished 3rd in their division, and 10th in the Eastern Conference.
When James returned the Cavs rebounded and finished the season with a 53-29 record, finished 1st in the division, and was 2nd in the Eastern Conference.
Since LeBron has returned back to Cleveland he has helped lead the Cavaliers to three straight NBA Finals appearances.
If the Cavs happen to lose LeBron he would be missed greatly.
James has averaged 27.1 PPG, has a Field Goal Percentage of .501, 7.3 Rebounds per Game, 7 Assists per Game, and a 3-point percentage of .342 in his 14-year career.
Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com has claimed that the report of LeBron leaving Cleveland is 100% false though.
For what it's worth (damn it, I'm on vacation), three sources close to LeBron said this latest tweet about him is 100 percent false
