Dinner between LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in Las Vegas:
Many sources have confirmed a dinner between the two Monday night in Las Vegas before heading out to a nightclub. Take it as a sign of the two finalizing a plan of attack to reunite or simply a get together between two friends. Either way, Twitter was all over it and why not?

Meeting between LeBron James and Pat Riley:
Another big storyline this morning was that Pat Riley and LeBron James could very well be meeting as early as Tuesday. Putting a few pieces together, it is perhaps safe to say that A) Dwyane Wade will also probably meet with Riley at some point seeing that he is in Vegas as well and B) Would Riley waste his time traveling to Vegas if LeBron was still undecided or out of the Miami Heat picture?
In case u missed earlier tweets, yes, the Pat Riley/LeBron James meeting is today in Las Vegas. My gut says it won't be at an $8.99 buffet.— Ethan J. Skolnick (@EthanJSkolnick) July 8, 2014

Carmelo waiting for LeBron?:
Then there is the speculation revolving with Carmelo Anthony and his "pause" on revealing what team he will sign with. It was understood that he would make his decision known by Monday, but now there appears to be a bit of uneasiness among the teams that had a strong hold on the player.
Popular question raised by last five teams I've talked to: Is Melo holding out in hopes Bosh goes to Houston so he can join LeBron in Miami?— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 8, 2014
Vibe I get out of New York, meanwhile, is legitimate unease ... given that some in the organization expected a decision from Melo by Monday— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 8, 2014
