Just...something different.

So...personally I'm choosing to believe LeBron will stay. But I'm curious..what do your guts' say?
IF he leaves, the petty side of me would love to see him go with OKC.

Well, maybe this is good news for you, because I’ve believed since the beginning of the season that he’s leaving CLE this offseason.

Now, I’ve felt for awhile that he’s heading to LA.

I’ve heard he wants to get into film (tv or big screen, not sure) and LA would be the place for him.

However, now that I look at the Lakers and Clips, I’m not sure either looks attractive enough to him as far as contending for a championship.

I had never considered OKC, but wouldn’t be great to see him team with Russell and take down the Warriors? (I don’t think they could)

Houston sounds intriguing, and it’d be interesting to see if Harden and Paul would be able to defer to Bron. That team could give GS a serious run for their money.

I feel like he’ll stay in the East though.

Would he willing to team up with Philly’s young nucleus? I’d like to see him there.

People have talked about him going back to Miami. I don’t see that happening.

I’ll say:

1st choice- Philly
2nd choice- Houston

Let me add that I could see him going to the Lakers if Paul George ends up there.

Was my thought as well.

Personally, I think the Lakers have the best shot at acquiring LeBron if he's ready to leave Cleveland, especially if coach Walton can keep Paul George in L.A.

L.A. reportedly has the most flexibility when it comes to salary cap, LeBron already has some relationships there, and I think he's looking to get into sports broadcasting/entertainment when he's ready to retire from play.

But, Pop is said to be very interested and trying to put together an awesome deal. He and LeBron have a ton of mutual respect, based on previous interviews. Plus, Pop is good about lucrative contracts for players who are nearing the end of their basketball careers, going by what he's done with Duncan. So, San Antonio is probably a serious contender too.

Nice call HotD.

I also thought all along LA was the spot for him, but only if Paul George was coming. George is staying in OKC, which makes me think somehow the Lakers may be able to work a deal for Kawhi Leonard to join the club.

Anyway, it’s being reported LeBron will sign a 4 year/$155M deal to head to LA-LA Land.

Thanks MS -- I hadn't heard the news yet. My mom and my nephew drove up last-minute on Thursday and left this morning.

She was hoping like hell her Lakers would get LeBron. Will be interesting to see if he can elevate the team back to the top within four years and how well he'll gel with Coach Walton.

The Thunder has gotta be thrilled that Paul George is staying put. He reportedly bought a $7 million home in the Hidden Hills LA suburb in 2016 when he was still with the Pacers. That made it seems more likely he was hoping to move here, but I'm glad he's staying in OKC.

This appears to be accurate MS. LeBron is reportedly already set to star in a comedy movie. https://variety.com/2018/film/news/lebro...202863347/
