Some big, big news broke this week in the world of basketball. The basketball player in the world has returned to the city he spurned four years ago by spurning the city he originally spurned them for. Basically, LeBron James is returning to Cleveland, OH in a definitely-not-awkward reunion with the team owner and all the fans that basically cursed the day he was born back in 2010.

The ripple effects have been numerous and all of them have been bad for the Houston Rockets. Chris Bosh said "No thanks" and re-signed with Miami, Carmelo Anthony is likely going to re-sign with New York, talks of a Kevin Love trade have fizzled, and the Dallas Mavericks have offered Chandler Parsons a huge raise that the Rockets must match in order to retain his services. All that's left is maybe Luol Deng and Trevor Ariza... yeesh. Looks like Darth Morey is taking one on the chin this offseason.

The World Cup finale is this Sunday and I'm having trouble deciding who to root for for whom I shall root. I'm a sucker for underdogs, and both Germany and Argentina are absolute powerhouses, so no luck there. There's no real geographical bias for me either, so should I align myself with the northern hemisphere and root for a German Victory? Or am I more of a western hemisphere kind of guy? These are the questions that keep me up at night.

Also, there are great white sharks in the Gulf?!

Feel free to talk about this or anything else you like tonight. Happy Saturday.
