Why it could be correct: Seems possible. I mean, maybe? LeBron
Why it's probably not: The tipster doesn't link to whatever page he is referring to, and we were unable to verify his claims in any of the CSS on LeBron's site. Also: "Lets make sure we tell our web developer where LeBron is going first."
