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


LeBron James speaks to the media with a cast on his right hand after being defeated by the Golden State Warriors in game four.

Because Paul let it be known to James Harden who let it be known to the Rockets who let it be known to the Clippers that Paul would be targeting Houston in free agency, potentially at the cost of Los Angeles receiving nothing in return.

The Warriors completed an NBA Finals sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday for back-to-back titles and a third crown in four years.

What he essentially is saying, however, is that although Boston and Golden State give James the best chances of winning a title, neither option is a realistic destination, for multiple reasons. The Lakers definitely need another big name to come to LA along with James if they want to contend, but that might not be a problem. Others include the Warriors, Sixers, Celtics, Lakers, Rockets, and Cavs.

But Sherman believes Philadelphia is the most likely landing spot.

Wade was traded back to the Heat during a Cavaliers roster overhaul at the trade deadline, as they wanted to open more playing time for youngster Cedi Osman and three newly added perimeter players (Jordan Clarkson, Rodney Hood and George Hill).

Tristan Thompson helped the Cavaliers win the Eastern Conference, but, except for a few flashes, didn't show the same energy against Golden State. I should be making more money if all that's on me.

Wade isn't revealing what exactly he thinks James will do, but he did say what he thinks the decision might come down to. Expect the Cavs to explore what they might get for a package of Love and the No. 8 pick around the draft in a last-ditch attempt to convince LeBron to stay. But, things happen the way they happen for everyone.

It is why the LeBron James timetable for some teams may not include either the July 1 start of free-agency negotiations or the July 6 start of the signing period.

"I had some tough problems going on throughout the course of the season, and I probably could have folded myself, but I wasn't going to do that".

Golden State claimed the National Basketball Association championship in a runaway, and by the beginning of the fourth quarter, most minds naturally had shifted to what will be the biggest story in sports this summer.

While some may scoff at the bombastic Smith's claim, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald notes that Smith was the first person to indicate that James was giving the Heat strong consideration in 2010.

Meanwhile, James was forced to not only create for himself but be his team's focal point offensively every single second he was on the court, which in the postseason was nearly for all 48 minutes every night.
