    I think Lebron has another 2 years to play at this level and another 2-3 years after that of high level basketball. I think Lebron will go out on his own terms.

    I think 3 more solid years for him.

    Solid LeBron years, or solid NBA player years?

    The answer I really want is whether he’ll stick around once he’s no longer the best player on the court every night.

    3 more solid Lebron years...he could be a serviceable NBA player til he's 40 if he doesn't break down.

    LeBron needs about 4 seasons at his current scoring clip to break Kareem’s scoring record. I don’t think he even considers walking away until that’s in his rearview mirror. He’ll pass Jordan probably around the all star break next year, maybe a bit earlier.

    He’ll go to Philly, I think.

    Let’s just say it will be Warriors vs. Philly in the finals next year.

    I can think of 32 teams in the NBA that would really love to have LeBron.

    He has a chance to pass Kobe next year also and be #3 on the list.

    I have zero clue where he will end up but I expect to be surprised.

    He said last night that he is still in championship mode when it comes to where he will play and that it will be a family decision. He said his kids are older now and will have more influence on where he chooses to play. Honestly that makes me think that Cleveland has a shot at keeping him.

    All we do know is this.......he will be discussing next season with a whole lot of people. Including Kevin Durant who can opt out of his contract and be a free agent.

    I don’t see Houston as an option. LeBron is still the best player in the world. I can’t see Harden and LeBron co-existing in the court. When I hear LeBron say he is still in championship mode I don’t see him enjoying playing with Harden. LeBron said it earlier this week.....some players don’t want the pressure of playing to win championships. I don’t feel like Harden wants that pressure. I could be wrong about that but that is what I feel like we see from Harden.

    Boston is intriguing. At first I said nah, won’t happen. But Boston can make it happen. Kyrie is a free agent in 2019 I believe so it is plausible Boston would trade Kyrie if it meant landing LeBron. I also add that the new narrative floating around is that LeBron didn’t want Cleveland to trade Kyrie and if that is true then could there be a reunion in Boston? LeBron has never played for a traditional basketball powerhouse. He made Cleveland legit and he bolstered Miami’s resume tremendously. People have mentioned what his legacy means to him.....if he goes to Boston and defeats the Warriors in Boston with Tom Brady and Bill Belichick cheering him on in the front row and Larry Bird watching from Danny Ainge’s suite it would be an outstanding story with obnoxious hype and media coverage. I can see Boston happening more and more with each passing hour.

    I don’t see him going to LA unless they ship Lonzo Ball out and Paul George or Demarcus Cousins joins him in LA. Fact of the matter is that LeBron doesn’t have time to fool with Lavar Ball’s antics while he is trying to not only win a championship but not get beat in the first round of the playoffs. Also regarding the Lakers LeBron also said this week that having cerebral players on the team who can think and have a high IQ on the court during the games is essential to win championships. That right there makes me feel like there is no way he goes to LA. They are way too young and way too green.

    I can’t help but think that he could end up back in Miami. If he is serious about the family being involved in the decision then I think he could end up back in Miami with DWade. The Heat’s supporting cast is better than what he had in Cleveland. If he can convince one of these top notch free agents to come to Miami...........KD on line 1.......

    If he goes to the West I think he only has 2-3 options. Houston is one but I don’t like that makeup. The Spurs are another choice. Especially if they lose Kawhi. I’ve heard some OKC conspiracy theories that sound like a lot of fun. And then there’s Golden State as well........

    I don’t understand why he would leave the East though. 8 straight finals from the East. It would be awfully risky to go out West.

    People keep mentioning Philly. That is another very intriguing option. I’d be there for all of the Joel Embiid trash talking to the rest of the NBA. LeBron in Philly would be a whole lot of fun.


    Either way, this is going to be a ton of fun. I’m excited for his future!!!!!!!!

    As a Sixer fan I’m hoping they sign LeBron. If not, I hope they pass in FA and take a run at Klay Thompson and Jimmy Butler next summer. I’m fairly certain they will be free agents next summer. Someone correct me if I’m wrong.

    I would bet you not, if owners were honest.

    Doesnt it go against everything Philly has been trying to do for the last few years?

    Nope. They made the playoffs this year. Their tanking days for high draft picks is over. They want the wins now.
