Decisions, Decisions: What will LeBron James do this summer?

Grant SmithJun 11, 2018

Cleveland's season ended on Friday in the NBA Finals, and for the third time in four years it came against the Warriors and without a championship. "I think I've shown this year why I will still continue to be in championship mode". If James choses the Heat, which is unlikely at this point, Miami would have to execute a sign and trade with Cleveland or James would have to opt in his contract and get Cleveland to trade him there. Now that James has brought a championship to Cleveland and was given an bad team this past season, James is blameless if he decides to sign with a new team.

James and the Cavaliers trail Golden State 2-0 in this year's Finals.

On a podcast during the finals, Gilbert said he views James as much more than a player.

Realistically, James' best chance to win another championship is elsewhere, as the Cavaliers' past two Finals trips have made plain that they were outmatched against Golden State.

As many expected, the Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets are leading the race for James' services, with the Philadelphia 76ers having the same odds as the Cavs of nabbing LeBron.

While Baylor is considered one of the greatest small forwards in league history, his talent is often largely unheard of nowadays, not exclusively because he failed to win a ring but because he was never a league MVP.

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. Despite LeBron James having one of the best individual seasons in National Basketball Association history, the Cavaliers looked nothing like a team that could win the National Basketball Association title.

And there's also the delicate matter of James' rocky relationship with team owner Dan Gilbert. Mitchell and James' games could clash a bit - neither are pure shooters - but it's a situation worth exploring.

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

James, still focused on the opponent in front of him, lauded the Warriors.

There's a tug-of-war going on between James' brain and heart.

He went on to win two championships with the Heat before returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2014. "We were able to do something really unique for the cover that represents everything that drives me and inspires me - from my family to where I come from and words I live by".
