To me it's pretty clear he won't be staying in Cleveland.

The NBA gives us the same teams year after year and then the “where’s Lebron going” drama to keep us interested during the off-season. Whereever he goes, the team will have talent and it’ll be The Team Lebron’s On vs the Warriors.

He’s a front-runner, so I expect to Philadelphia.

Philly to me is building a big man team in a small ball era. I think they still would not beat Golden State if they added LBJ. Philly does not have much 3 pt. shooting other than Redick, and he turns 34 this month. Simmons hit exactly zero 3 pt shots in 81 games.


I don't know where LeBron could go. LA does not have enough of a foundation to create an instant super team. If I'm Houston I would want to build on what I have rather than bring in LBJ and have to do a grand reshuffle. After all, Houston did lead the league in the reg. season.


If I'm Lebron I would look at Portland. They already have a good backcourt, but not much up front. Bring in LeBron and Paul George, and you have a team that could compete with GSW.

Would like him to go to a franchise that never went to the finals... Raptors or Timberwolves.

Not ready to make a prediction yet but Philly does have the cap space to bring in both Lebron and George, or Lebron and Leonard via a trade.

Where ever Lebron chooses it will not be until he sees what moves some of these teams will be willing to make in regards to other players.

Now that, prior to Game 4 of the Finals, Durant has confirmed that he will resign with the Warriors, it will be interesting to later see if, after LeBron makes his decision, he reveals whether Durant's decision influenced his decision at all.

I have no idea because I feel like nowhere is the perfect fit as of right now. I think it depends what other moves are made.


I'm from Ohio, so I am biased and sad to see him go. However, I don't want him to settle think he should do what's best.

LeBron likes being a celebrity so he's not going to another outpost of the nba; ie Portland. It'll be a major city where he can be a celebrity. Most likely LA.
