LeBron James is still the best player in the NBA and is headed into free agency this offseason. Simply hearing the name LeBron in free agency drives the league into a frenzy. Unlike the last few years, James is being rumored to be seriously considering leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second time in his career.
Looking ahead at free agency, James is expected to entertain visits and offers from four different teams. He has been connected to the Cavaliers, Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets, and Philadelphia 76ers. Many believe that he will stay put in Cleveland or go to Los Angeles, but the 76ers are a team to keep both eyes on.
At 33 years of age, James is heading into what could be the final chapter of his career. He is still capable of winning games nearly by himself, but his prime is quickly coming to a close.
It will be interesting to see what James decides to do this offseason. Leaving Cleveland would ruin his reputation in the city and would cause an absolute uproar. Staying with the Cavaliers might mean that James is giving up an opportunity to join a better all-around team.
All of that being said, there is one team that could offer James the money he is looking for and a much better team around him than he currently has in Cleveland.
