ORLANDO, Fla. -- I'm on my way to Miami to watch LeBron James' current team play his next one. At least, that's the latest version of the story that will provide an ongoing media circus until James decides once and for all where he's playing in 2010-11. Notwithstanding Wednesday's oh-please-stop-no mini-protest that he doesn't want to talk about free agency anymore, LeBron's future domicile remains the dominant story hanging over the 2009-10 season.
