Report: LeBron James '100 percent leaving' Cavaliers after this season

Report: LeBron James '100 percent leaving' Cavaliers after this season

LeBron James' eventual departure from Cleveland for a second time has seemed inevitable for a while. A tweet from longtime basketball reporter Chris Sheridan Wednesday shouldn't make Cavs fans feel any better. 

Sheridan tweeted a quote from an NBA source saying that the 2017-18 season will definitely be James' last with the Cavs.

This news comes as the Cavaliers figure out what to do with Kyrie Irving, who requested a trade this summer. The Celtics are among the teams reportedly in talks with Cleveland about the 25-year-old point guard. 

James, who infamously bolted from Cleveland after the 2009-10 season to join the Heat, returned to the Cavs for the 2014-15 season. He has a player option for the 2018-19 season, meaning he can become a free agent next summer.

What are the greatest debuts in Boston sports history?

Anticipation was high when Gustavo Bou took the pitch for his first game after signing a contract with the New England Revolution, and the Revs' investment in the Argentinian forward paid off, as he capped the first half with a brilliant strike on Wednesday night.

With that spectacular goal, Bou etches his name alongside some Boston sports legends (and some other notable athletes) who also made an immediate impact in their debut performances.

Hall of Famers like Pedro Martinez, Randy Moss, Kevin Garnett and Ray Bourque all had memorable first games with their respective local teams.

Here are some of the greatest debut performances in Boston sports history.

Walker posted a photo of himself fired up in a Boston uniform with a caption that shows he's ready to begin his new jersey in Celtic green.

Take a look at the post below:

"A journey of a thousand miles, begins with a single step," Walker wrote.

It sure looks like Kemba is eager to take the court for the first time as a Celtic. For fans, the feeling is mutual.
