For the fourth consecutive year, the Cleveland Cavaliers faced off against the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. The Warriors came out as the champion for the second year in a row, with Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and Andre Iguodala at the helm.
Now that the dust has settled, Cavs fans are looking forward and thinking about the future of the team. Most particularly, they are looking for clues about where LeBron James is headed.
Even before the 2017-2018 season came to a close, the rumor mill has already been circulating. There were many talks about the NBA superstar leaving the Cavs for the second time. To this date, he is yet to reveal his plans to anyone, but there are already a few speculated teams that LeBron could be joining in next season.
One of the top prospects for LeBron’s next team is the Houston Rockets. It all boils down to whether or not LeBron wants to build a team that could go up against the strong Warriors lineup. If he does make a move to the Rockets, he will be supported by the likes of James Harden and Chris Paul. It is the best choice for LeBron if he wants to add another trophy to his collection.
If LeBron chooses the Rockets, then he better be prepared to take flak from fans. Despite his amazing performance, he has been criticized for pairing up with other superstars to win championships. A possible transfer to the Rockets should spell trouble for the Warriors as they’ll have to face off against a formidable lineup.
Another great team for the four-time NBA MVP awardee is the Philadelphia 76ers. However, it is an option that might take a while to pay off. Compared to other teams, the 76ers chooses to invest in future talents rather than building a team using some of the best players in the NBA.
The team already has two up-and-comers, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. These two are expected to become superstars in the next seasons, and LeBron could tag along for the ride. However, it will be a risky move as there is no guaranteeing how successful the 76ers will be with its unconventional approach to roster building.
Los Angeles Lakers
With Kobe Bryant retiring a few years back, the Los Angeles Lakers have long been looking for a player to fill the shoes of the Black Mamba. Those shoes may just be the right fit for LeBron next season. Of all the viable teams, the Lakers have the most to offer in terms of salary. They could easily entice him with an offer unheard of.
Salary aside, the Lakers could build another superstar team if LeBron chooses to join. Lonzo Ball, Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, and Kyle Kuzma could be the Lakers’ starting lineup next year.
Regardless of where LeBron will choose to go for the next season, his choice will remain very crucial for the rest of the Cavs. As arguably the best player in the NBA currently, him staying in Cleveland will help the Cavs in taking another shot for the championship.
