Which Team Fits LeBron Best for Next Season?

  • Dub Dynasty: Warriors sweep Cavs for second straight title

While James will prioritize signing with an organization that's now built to compete for championships, other factors such as family and friendships will nearly certainly play a role in the process as well.

Just as free agency negotiations in the National Football League are done in behind the curtain meetings before they can become official, NBA general managers can feel out trades before the bell rings signifying the opening of the market. Following the game four loss to the Golden State Warriors, LeBron's future was a topic of conversation during his postgame media availability. Though, such a tandem would require Houston to pull off some serious roster maneuvering in order to fit both James and Paul under the salary cap.

Cleveland can offer James more money - a five-year, US$209 million contract - than anyone else, but the larger issue is what it can do to improve a roster that's now short on title-winning performance.

"I had emotions on [how] the game was taken away from us; I had emotions of [how] you just don't get an opportunity like this on the road versus Golden State to be able to get a Game 1, " he said. "You guys asked me this a year ago", said James, whose averages of 34.0 points, 8.5 rebounds and 10.0 assists went for naught over the four-game defeat. They don't need all but securing just one other all-star would keep James in Cleveland and if he can avenge last week's Finals defeat with another championship out of Cleveland then his legacy would become that much greater.

LeBron James hid a pretty significant hand injury from everybody after Game 1 of the NBA Finals. In Utah, James could stop the Warriors before they even reached the NBA Finals, getting payback with a young squad hungry for success.


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

But after the game, James said this, via Sheridan. The Knicks are in the same kind of attractive situation that Cavs were in when James returned. None of the eight teams that were swept before this Cavaliers team returned to win the title a year later. The summer of 2016 was unforgettable, with a downtown parade that James has said overwhelmed him with emotion.

If so, there's only one place where that can happen.

He's made it clear that if he does come back it'll likely be for the Heat, but does he believe he has anything left? Fast foward twenty years later, James isn't just the king on the court; he's also the single greatest force in the National Basketball Association today.

There's a tug-of-war going on between James' brain and heart. I pride myself on working hard wherever I go. And that's the reason why I came here - an unselfish environment where they just care about the game.
