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.

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/

Just heard a great quote today:
