Keep the rumor mill wheel spinning! LeBron James is easily the best basketball player on the planet today and arguably the greatest to ever live. That being said, any and every NBA team would love to have him play for them.
James has been to seven straight NBA Finals. For two different franchises. It is safe to say that no matter which team he chooses to play for this summer, they can immediately be considered championship contenders.
According to The Ringer, James’ list of suitors that he is considering playing for next season is down to four teams; Cleveland Cavaliers, Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets, and Philadelphia 76ers.
LeBron has spend his entire career playing for an Eastern Conference team. Considered the stronger of the two conferences, a move to the west would imply James’ desire to take on a new challenge. Or, in the case of Los Angeles, it could simply be a comfortable location decision.
At age 33, LeBron James is showing no signs of slowing down. This season he is back to his MVP ways, averaging 27 points, 9 assists, and 8.4 rebounds per game.
All eyes will be on LeBron, again, as he makes his decision this summer. Hopefully he doesn’t decide to do another national television “Decision Part 2” stunt. But if he does, we will be watching.
