A company that transports luxury, exotic and vintage vehicles showed up at LeBron James' Florida home and maybe, possibly loaded a couple of James' cars on to a truck.

The Internet, specifically Twitter, went wild searching for meaning.

It must surely mean James is leaving the Miami Heat. Why else would he transport cars? Of course, there could be a logical answer.

Perhaps James annually loads his cars and delivers them to his Akron home, where he spends time in the offseason. He needs a car while there, right?

Even after James met with Heat President Pat Riley on Wednesday, there still is no answer. We've reached that point in a high-profile NBA free agency summer where tea leaves and decoder rings are the best ways to find answers.

And the NBA loves every minute. Three weeks after the Finals and two weeks after the draft, the NBA remains in headlines. It's great theater.

UPDATE: Cedar Point offers to rename coaster if LeBron returns to Cleveland

Former NBA commissioner David Stern often professed his love for the "unscripted drama" the league produces. How much of free agency is scripted or unscripted is not known, but the drama sure is compelling.

The Magic 8-ball when asked if James is headed back to the Cleveland Cavaliers replied, "Signs point to yes."

Asked again, the Magic 8-ball said, "My sources say no."

When any little thing seems to mean something, everything probably means nothing. While the NBA world is waiting to hear from James, any bit of information leads to speculation.

TIMELINE: LeBron James' life and career

Where will James end up? Back with the Heat ... or back with Cavaliers.

Wednesday, he posted a photo of himself and childhood friends on Instagram. It must mean they're getting ready for a James homecoming, right?

Recently, his wife, Savannah, posted on Instagram a map of the United States with the words "Akron, OH" and with a star where Akron is located. She wrote, "Home sweet home!! The countdown is real #330"

Happy wife, happy life, and all that good stuff. Surely, the family was headed back to the area. And they were, like they have done every summer since James joined the Heat. And we were told not to read anything into the post.

#DECISION2: Zoo owl predicts which team LeBron will choose

But we can't help ourselves. You can be convinced he is returning to Cleveland and five minutes later convince yourself he is staying in Miami. Then convince yourself Cleveland must be the place. Why else would Cleveland make a trade Wednesday and open just enough cap space to sign James to a max contract?

But James and Dwyane Wade had dinner Monday night in Las Vegas and hung out together afterward. James has to be staying in Miami.

#DECISION2: Heat make moves to keep LeBron

But James' agent, Rich Paul, has maintained strong relationships with Cavaliers executives, including general manager David Griffin and owner Dan Gilbert. Gilbert's plane flew to South Florida on Sunday.

Riley just reached deals with veteran forwards Josh McRoberts and Danny Granger. There's no way Riley would've committed to those two players without extreme confidence that James will be back with the Heat. And Riley wouldn't be expressing that same confidence to people he talks with if he wasn't sure.

It's Cleveland. It's Miami. It's the Cavaliers. It's the Heat.

But signs aren't going to give the right answer. It will come from James via a statement on his website or Samsung app or maybe just a simple e-mail. Or perhaps, it will come from someone close to James.

Searching any information in these tidbits is fruitless.

Fun, but fruitless. Because no matter what James decides to do, all those supposed signs that pointed in the other direction were meaningless. We're just trying to find meaning when there is none.

One last time with the Magic 8-ball: Is James rejoining the Cavs?

"Cannot predict now."

Seems about right.
