LeBron James was expected to fly from Las Vegas to Akron before heading to Brazil for the World Cup Final this weekend, but there has been a change of plans:

James and his agent, Rich Paul, met with Miami Heat president Pat Riley in Las Vegas on Wednesday amid rumors the four-time MVP was returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers. James left the meeting without committing to the Heat, only fueling the fire even more that he was heading back home.
Despite all the hoopla, no official decision was made, and James wanted to talk things over more with his family before making a final choice. Now one must wonder what this change in travel plans means for his decision.
There have been no confirmed reports of James meeting face-to-face with Cavs owner Dan Gilbert or the new management team, which includes general manager David Griffin and recently hired head coach David Blatt.
