Could've picked a better team for this than Cleveland. That ship's already sailed and they have a first year
Coach.

Did LeBron James want Cavaliers, Pistons to switch ownership?

The Cleveland Cavaliers are reeling in the NBA finals.

They're down 3-0 to the Golden State Warriors - a deficit no NBA team has ever come back from in playoff history - and LeBron James isn't getting a whole lot of help from his team as they try to avoid a sweep in Game 4 on Friday night.

That sets the stage for a bombshell of a rumor that Dan Patrick dropped on "The Dan Patrick Show" this week.

Citing a source with "firsthand knowledge of the situation," Patrick said James proposed an ownership swap between the Cavaliers and Detroit Pistons before he returned to Cleveland in 2014 because he didn't want to play for Cavs owner Dan Gilbert.

That would've meant Gilbert would own the Pistons - along with the dozens of buildings and properties he already owns in downtown Detroit - and Tom Gores would own the Cavs.

Furthermore, Patrick said, as part of the deal, James wanted Michigan State basketball coach Tom Izzo to coach the Cavaliers. If you recall, Izzo was previously courted by the Cavaliers in 2010, when they fired Mike Brown, but Izzo chose to stay at MSU. Weeks later, James left Cleveland in free agency to join stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh with the Miami Heat.

That wouldn't be a complete shock, considering the public words DG had for LBJ on his way out of CLE.
Meanwhile, I know it shouldn't, but it still bottles my mind that one player could feel so self important as to suggest such a thing between owners. I guess when you're LBJ, you're secure enough to know nothing will happen to you even after making such a suggestion.
