LeBron James to Spurs? Sixers? Lakers? Celtics? Ranking 8 possible destinations

  • LeBron James

Kerr talked about the prediction following Golden State's series clinching win in Game 4.

Maybe it was poetic LeBron James had a supporting cast on his injured right hand.

But when it comes down to it, he also knows there will be one final decision-maker.

Golden State claimed the National Basketball Association championship in a runaway, and by the beginning of the fourth quarter, most minds naturally had shifted to what will be the biggest story in sports this summer.

Much of this chatter has been on the notion that James could very well be on his way out of Cleveland, but former Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Cribbs has taken to social media to voice that the four-time league MVP is attempting to bring All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook aboard to the Cavs. "So to be one of guys, that's what I always wanted".

James has proven he can lead any group to the championship round and Cleveland already has a bunch of B-list-quality depth.

His next stop is unknown.

Legacy, for LeBron James, is a loaded word.

At the moment the list of suitors is limited, but it could grow before July as teams position themselves to acquire one of the game's most transcendent forces.

He's still into hanging banners.

She had also worked for the social development ministry in Buenos Aires province and at a United Nations office in Panama. Argentinian authorities are still investigating the 33-year-old's death but they too have pointed to suicide.

"When you feel like you are really good at your craft, it's always great to be around other great minds and other great ballplayers", James said. "The Bay Area allows me to be who I am, as a city, to just blend in, and the team allows me to do the same thing", he told Lee. Anything is possible. People have been saying that for the past four years.

According to Jordan Schultz of Yahoo Sports though, there is only a "slim chance" of James signing with either the Warriors or Celtics. LeBron and Paul George could team up to create a new version of the showtime Lakers days.

The Boston Celtics are 7-1 and the Los Angeles Lakers, another suitor, are the 14-1 fifth choice.

LeBron is, of course, the main man in Cleveland, while Durant plays alongside a superteam of Steph Curry, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson. Add a couple of mid-level exception type players and NY could be the team to beat next year.

"Miami and James would need to convince Cleveland to execute a sign-and-trade, or James would need to opt in the final year of his contract (for $35 million) and persuade Cleveland to trade him".

And there's also the delicate matter of James' rocky relationship with team owner Dan Gilbert.

On a podcast during the finals, Gilbert said he views James as much more than a player. The Knicks are in the same kind of attractive situation that Cavs were in when James returned.

The Warriors are no shockers to repeat after a sweep this finals and two of the last three titles in their trophy case. The summer of 2016 was unforgettable, with a downtown parade that James has said overwhelmed him with emotion. "Obviously if he came back, they won't be 30-1". "What was the difference between the Warriors the previous year and this year, and what was my answer?"

There's a tug-of-war going on between James' brain and heart. "But as you know, it's probably going to come up".
