The Spurs won the title, and the Heat are (technically) in a state of flux. So, apparently, it’s time to take some shots.

Duncan stays and King James bails? #gospursgo @KENS5 @News4SA @mySA

LeBron James opted out of the final two years of his contract on Tuesday to become an unrestricted free agent, but it’s extremely likely that he isn’t going anywhere. Any star player in his prime (see also: Carmelo Anthony) would have done the same in order to sign a longer deal for more guaranteed dollars, and in the end, LeBron may decide to take less than max money in order to provide the franchise with some future financial flexibility to bring in additional talent that would upgrade the roster.

The person behind the billboard, however, probably didn’t take any of this into consideration.
