Lebron James Noncommittal About Return To Cleveland

While James will prioritize signing with an organization that's now built to compete for championships, other factors such as family and friendships will nearly certainly play a role in the process as well.

James, who has the ability to utilise a player option in his contract and become a free agent, is believed to be ready to move on from Cleveland. If the Rockets fail to open enough salary cap space to give both superstars decent offers, Stein opened up the possibility that James may convince Paul that they could sign together with another team.

Russell, who won three more MVPs and nine more rings (11-1 in the NBA Finals) than Wilt, is rarely considered the better overall player though because it's widely recognized he was part of a dynasty, a team-based concept.

But we know what you're really wondering - What will James sneakers look like on a new team?

"I still want to be in championship mode", LeBron said after his team was eliminated from the NBA Finals, echoing the conventional wisdom that he wants to chase another ring.

Nobody knows whether Lebron James will leave Cleveland or not this summer but one thing is for sure: he'll definitely be on somebody's roster next year.

With his team having gone 1-8 against Golden State over the past two Finals, after having dethroned its nemesis in 2016, James was asked what the biggest difference was between then and now. In Utah, James could stop the Warriors before they even reached the NBA Finals, getting payback with a young squad hungry for success.

He said: "Kobe, M.J., LeBron, Kareem, those dudes drive me, they push me every day to get to that level, to that standard and I want to be able to sit back and talk to them about basketball one day". Kyrie Irving scored 40 points and James scored 31. The Knicks are in the same kind of attractive situation that Cavs were in when James returned.

Since moving to the Bay, Durant has won two titles in as many years and averaged 28.7 points, 10.7 rebounds and 7.5 assists in the Warriors' sweep of the Cavs.

If so, there's only one place where that can happen. He will be looking for an all-star teammate or teammates to help him carry the load and ease the pressure that he had this season in Cleveland. He found it with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami, and he came back a different man, ready to build his legacy.

That brings us to the question of why we bother watching the National Basketball Association anymore if we know who is going to be the best team in conference each year, and it is for the hope and pride for our city. A father of three, his priorities have changed again, and this time the decision is more complicated. "It ultimately will come down to me".
