Griffin, Paul, and LeBron... Doc Rivers too boot with a special emphasis on defense. Lebron gets enhanced exposure in the LA market, and gets to not have to worry about stepping on the same team that Kobe was. If you had to guess, which team would you say LeBron is headed to..or does he stay in Miami?

Stays in Miami.

He's supposedly investing in David Beckham's Miami MLS expansion team. He clearly loves living there. Why leave the market? If Bosh leaves, the Heat will have money to sign a max guy.

Western Conference is a lot harder.

I think he'll stay in Miami. They're a classy organization and will likely do what they can to keep him surrounded by talent, and I think he appreciates his status there compared to his toiling away in Cleveland for an unappreciative Gilbert.

If they win, he'll leave. If they lose, he'll stay.

Imagine being frustrated with no championships because of your own basketball organization's incompetence, leaving because of it, three-peating, coming back, and giving a city that hasn't won a championship in decades a title...? Like he said he would?

If he wins three in Cleveland he'll be considered better than Jordan. You have to chase that.

If Cleveland thought he was coming back, they wouldn't have just fired their GM last week.

Or they're just waiting for LeBron to convince Riley to take a job...

Believe it or not, and you might not believe it, but right now, with NO lebron, the Clippers are as good as the Heat. If they played in the finals tomorrow, it would be a 7 game series. So, if you ADD lebron to the Clippers, is there really any way they could get beat? Probably not.

The key is this. Forget about money, weather and all that other stuff...the bottom line for Lebron is legacy. He NEEDS to win at least 4 titles to be considered the best of all time.....but preferably he has to win at least 6, which means that his mindset has to be that he needs to go to the team who has the best chance to win the NBA title with him added to the team. The Clippers are certainly one of those teams and he's as close to CP3 as anyone in the game....that's also a factor.

I'm waiting for the Knicks fans to show up predicting he HAS to go there to be a real star.

Sorry, just remembering all the threads from when he was leaving Cleveland.

Man, those threads were a headache. Got an advil I could borrow? lol...

I really have no idea what he is going to do. The world is his oyster though. This will not be another 'Decision' type situation, he is going to be appluaded whether he stays in Miami, goes to form another super team (wherever that would be), or if he goes back to Cleveland. There will of course be haters for every scenario, but he will not turn into a super villian overnight this time. Once again, just like 4 years ago, I'm going to be very intrigued by what he decides, and some NBA market will hit the absolute jackpot.

Yep. Remember all the extreme hate about how he'd never win a championship and blah blah blah....and I remember it was mostly coming from the fans of 2 teams in particular.

Well, he certainly shut up his critics.

100% agree, he can go wherever he likes at this point.
