Welp! Things seem to be happening! The latest rumors in the LeBron James free agency saga suggest that his announcement about where he’ll be taking his talents next is imminent. There’s even a police car stationed outside his house in Bath Township, near Akron, Ohio.

But is this a good sign for Cavaliers fans or bad? The police could be there to stave off vandalism if James announces he’s staying in Miami or going elsewhere. Or, maybe — just maybe! — the patrol car is on the scene to control ecstatic revelers who plan to gather for a party outside James’ abode to celebrate the star’s return.
Locals have a strong hunch that it’s the latter, the Akron Beacon Journal’s Phil Trexler notes on Twitter, and that the star’s plans to return to the Cavaliers will be announced tonight.
Hunch in Bath Twp. is that LBJ’s coming home, all things are positive. Still nothing official, but police told to “be prepared.” #kingjames
