A few links today as we head into the home stretch of the Orlando Summer League, with stories on last night's game, LeBron's decision, Jermaine O'Neal's decision, Danny Granger spreading the hoops gospel and a look at Lance Stephenson learning the point and Paul George lamenting his missing shot on Tuesday.
Also, the league's salary cap was released yesterday and the numbers are far better than expected at this time last year. After last year's cap dipped there were projections at the time that this year would be far worse which would've been a nightmare for the Pacers since they're up against the cap for another year. But instead of going down, the cap increased by around $2 million which won't relieve the Pacers' tight cap situation much but certainly won't hurt.

2010 NBA free agency: Sources: LeBron James leaning toward joining Miami Heat
Chris Broussard reports that all indications are that LeBron James will announce he's signing with the Miami Heat on Thursday night, according to several sources with knowledge of the situation. This would stink on a few levels. I'd much rather see LeBron and Dwyane Wade go at each other instead of passing the ball to each other.
