Where’s LeBron James Going This Summer?
The Philadelphia 76ers are the favorite to land LeBron James in free agency this summer.
According to BetOnline, the 76ers are listed as a plus-150 favorite to sign Bron, assuming he decides to become a free agent come July.
The Cavaliers, Rockets, and Lakers come in at second, third and fourth to land the superstar.
As LeBron gets into his mid-30’s, he needs more help from his teammates if he wants to continue to win at a high level, and Cleveland is just not that team anymore. Philly has Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, Houston has CP3 and Harden, and LA has Zo, Ingram, Kuzma, and lots of money.
You could make the case that Bron should go to any of those four teams and it would benefit him, but I think he’s staying in Cleveland. I think he realizes how much it would affect his legacy leaving his hometown team twice just because the going got tough.
With that said, I think the smartest move would be to go to the 76ers, it keeps him in the Eastern Conference which is basically a first class ticket to the Finals during his time there, and it pairs him up with two future superstars in Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, that would be a scary lineup, especially if Markelle Fultz gets back to his college form.
Only time will tell, in the meant time, we get to watch the fourth installment of Cavaliers VS Warriors in the 2018 NBA Finals, enjoy.
