As rumors swirl about him leaving the Cavaliers for the Lakers next summer, LeBron James – who has not been shy about using social media to send messages – tweeted at Lakers president Magic Johnson on Johnson’s 58th birthday.


Obviously, this doesn’t make LeBron Los Angeles-bound – or even mean he’s alluding to the idea. But I do believe LeBron wants the thought of him leaving Cleveland again out there, maybe if only to keep pressure on the Cavs. For what it’s worth, LeBron never tweeted Johnson a birthday message until Johnson took over the Lakers.

As Johnson would say, wink.
