More media in LA than Akron. Better weather, hotter women. Also, his kid doesn't have the same hype as his dad.

Actually, LeBron's is going to start getting the same hype as his dad now that he's entering high school because people are curious about how will his son perform, and every college in the country is going to be after him.

All I know is this is going to be a fun off season!! And the Lakers will be big players no matter if LeBron goes to LA or not. I just have this hunch Magic is going to do something big. Like sign two max free agents and trade for another all star caliber player.

Paul George and Lebron. Maybe the entire Banana boat crew. Melo, Dwade, and CP3.

Lebron Jr is around 5'10 and there is no guarantee that he will grow as big as his dad. Remember Jordan's kid?

School officials wont admit it, and were probably told not to admit it!! That would be the smart thing to do if I were LeBron.


as was a story during the all star break of evaluating schools in the Philly area, not sure any of these are true nor would that make a definitive choice

I do think it will come down to LA, Philly or Cleveland with a Boston dark horse


so yes a very specific prediction

The Cleveland Cavaliers or the Los Angeles Lakers.

I just don't see LeBron James leaving Cleveland, a city and fanbase that means the world to him, to go to just any team in any city (Brian Windhorst, who knows him better than any other reporter said something very similar to this recently). Even Dwyane Wade alluded to as much as well on the Chris and Caron podcast. I think he would only leave for a city that he knows he and his family can be comfortable in longterm and a place that he can have both a talented and competitive team, as well as off court business connections. LeBron and his family have been living in Los Angeles during the offseason for a number of years now and I'm sure internally his family has discussed making it a year-round arrangement. In addition to that, LeBron really looks up to Magic Johnson a lot and considers him a business mentor.

The Lakers also have two max free agent slots on their roster, so it lets him pick his co-star, and dictate the rest of the roster. Team management and ownership has a number of people that he has relationships with and trusts. They probably wont be competitive enough to ever beat the Warriors but will resurrect the Lakers back into playoff contention.

So Lakers and Cavaliers, that is what it will ultimately come down to. I envision LeBron swaying more towards what his wife and kids find most comfortable for themselves in this decision, so Cleveland or Los Angeles. I'm sure LeBron looks at the talent on Boston or Houston and feels tempted but I just cant see him picking any other place other than Cleveland or Los Angeles. He and his family have an established multi-year connection and affinity towards Cleveland and Los Angeles. The other cities likely don't have anywhere close to as much weight, in my view.

I voted Philly, but I think it's 50/50 between Philly and returning to Cleveland. I can't imagine him going to the West where it is really competitive.

I wonder, will Lebron get any "credit" from the public/critics for going to a team like the Lakers where everyone seems to be in agreement that it isn't the best basketball/championship/ready-made scenario? It won't be a super-team, it'll be a challenge for sure.

Haters will never give LeBron credit. If he went to a team that's not championship caliber they'd probably say he's given up competing & is soft.
