When LeBron James retires, he’ll likely be most remembered as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Lakers. However, his most successful stint was with the Miami Heat. In just four years with the team, he went to the NBA Finals every year and won two of them. He also won two league MVP awards during that time.

Though he was only with the team for a brief time, he deserves credit as one of the all-time Heat greats. In fact, some think he’s the best basketball player to ever play in Miami. According to current Heat guard Tyler Herro, LeBron stands above all.

“I have to say LeBron James,” Herro said recently when asked who the best Heat player is. “I mean, you can’t go wrong. [Wade], [James], either or, but I feel like growing up for me [James]

In a year in which ESPN has moved on from several iconic employees, one of the network’s legends may elect to move on from the Worldwide Leader later this year, according to a new report.

Per Front Office Sports, SportsCenter host Neil Everett’s contract with ESPN expires this summer. Instead of trying to negotiate a new deal, Everett “could” reportedly leave ESPN.

Everett, 59 years old, has been an iconic member of the SportsCenter team. He’s worked alongside Stan Verrett since 2009, running the 1 a.m. ET edition of ESPN’s long-running show. Both Everett and Verrett are fan favorites, thanks to their high-energy chemistry.

Everett could be the next longtime ESPN employee to leave the network (or be asked to leave, for that matter). He would join names like Kenny Mayne, Mike Golic Sr. and Dan Le Batard.
