LeBron James is reportedly zeroed in on signing either with the Cleveland Cavaliers or Los Angeles Lakers in free agency.

The Houston Rockets and Philadelphia 76ers were initially on James' list, but the comfort of his family in Northeast Ohio or Los Angeles appears to be a factor.

"I don't think Houston is in the running," said Brain Windhorst. "I don't think his family feels comfortable going to Houston. I think where his family is going to be qualifies the teams. You have to get by his wife, Savannah. And his sons to say "yes."

It's the Lakers, then.

Only if the Lakers acquire another star.  I doubt he'd go to the Lakers by himself.

There's no chance he's going back to the Cavs. But he will have his people leak that they're in the running so as to not show up his hometown team.

I don't think there's ever been a question nor any doubt in LBJ's mind. He's going to LAL.

We all knew it was the Lakers as soon as the Finals concluded, or long before that. It's just a matter of "when", and also when the dominoes will fall.

Kawhi Leonard, and then the agreement with Paul George and LeBron James. Who knows, LA might even trade for Damian Lillard and form their Big 3 there.

But the moment LeBron goes to the Lakers, the Lakers become a playoff-bound team. Add Paul George and another star and they suddenly become a title contender.

Sucks because Boston worked hard building their team while the Lakers just suddenly attracted 2-3 superstars in one summer.  :(

Yeah, totally likely LeBron's kids have a real say in one of the biggest decisions of his life. As if they would even bother expressing one.. Everywhere is Disneyland for them. "Daddy, why can't we go live in a city with a vibrant art scene like Manhattan?"

"Yo, Mav, ice the Houston deal, Bronny isn't happy with Texas cuisine and their repressive legal system"

Give me a break, Windhorst is just cringey embarrassing.

Yeah, I agree. They should really go out and sign Dwight Howard.

Wait...;D.

I want him to stay in Cleveland. I want to kick his ass next year.

Is anybody with me?
