They can play in any team together.

His son is going into high school next year so it will be a perfect time to move.

True, but it seems like nowadays, a lot of these 5 and even some 4 star High School recruits, seem to jump around from team to team over their High School basketball career, sometimes going from one coast to the other and everywhere in between. I'm not saying that's what will happen to LeBron's oldest son and that he will even be a 5/4 star recruit, but you never know.

Duke is already interested in him. I don't see Lebron staying unless they make a lot of moves in this offseason.

Maybe Kawhi and Paul G joining him would make him stay in Cleveland.

I don't see him going to the 76ers. The team is still young and it's pretty much risky. The 76ers in 3 to 5 years will be a great team if Joel and Ben stay together and they find more supporting cast members.

I don't see Lebron going to Spurs. I can't seem him following Pop for 82 games + playoffs.

I feel Rockets, Heat, or Lakers (if Kawhi and Paul join). There are rumors that Kawhi and Paul are already on board joining the Lakers.

I heard that as well, but I do wonder how much of his son's interest/ranking is do to who his father is? Does it bump him up a "full star" or maybe "half a star", or doesn't it effect it at all? I think it's similar to Shaq's son, Shareef, the name recognition does help, of course you still have be somewhat good on the court.

It's definitely a little bit of nepotism with talent. I hope Shareef, Zaire (Wade's kid) and Bron Jr actually like playing basketball. It would be crazy if they do a Big 3 in the NBA.

You also have to understand that Nike, Adidas, and Under Armor are probably scouting them too. And those companies can put a little bit of flex on those colleges.

Nike got really lucky with Lebron. They landed him in the middle of High School and he turned out to be amazing. Adidas was not so lucky with Derrick Rose.

Looks like Lebron has decided, he will be the 7th or 8th man for the Dubs!

What I think he might do is try to stay out East. Maybe he'll join the Sixers.

Toronto Raptors would be great.

Toronto is close to Cleveland.

Well, Adidas did well with Rose, it was just the injuries killed the endorsement. Hard to advertise the "Derrick Rose 3" when he's not on the court wearing them. The talent was there, just like it's there with Lebron, but the injuries greatly derailed Rose's basketball career, as well as, his Adidas deal. Didn't Harden come in and pick up where Rose left off?

I'd love to see LeBron play for Popovich! The best player & best coach of today uniting, with LeBron finally getting a great coach. We may even see Pop bring out talents in LeBron that we haven't seen. LeBron has made it clear he wants to be part of a cerebral team, which I think Pop tries to create.

Just imagine the assists LeBron could rack up with teammates that can actually make baskets.

Also, Pop & LeBron are both outspoken about racial issues & Trump so it'd be a beautiful thing to see them join forces in that effort.
