Why LA is better for LeBron James than Philadelphia

LeBron James is expected to hit free agency this summer, and will reportedly have as many as eight potential landing spots this summer.

After overruling his family's desire to remain in Miami when he returned to Cleveland, James has said his family will have more of a voice this time in his upcoming free agency.

Several teams have been linked with moves for both players and there could be a scenario where they end up at the same team.

The first question is who should the third star be, and which teams are in a position to trade one?

It's likely that the National Basketball Association star's options are to stay with Cleveland or go to the Philadelphia 76ers or Los Angeles Lakers - the three teams with "realistic salary cap space" to sign James in free agency.


"Yeah, I'm with LeBron every All-Star".

James is coming off of one of his best all-around seasons, although the Cleveland Cavaliers didn't offer him much help.

As the Lakers have become the favorites to sign James and George, many have started to kick around the idea of James joining George on the Thunder instead of the Lakers.

The 33-year-old was able to drag his hometown side to the NBA Finals where they faced the Golden State Warriors for the fourth straight year, but failed to make it a competitive series with the defending champions sweeping them last week.

In terms of being ready to be a title contender, the Rockets are probably the best choice for James if they still have James Harden and Chris Paul on the team. But Lillard is too expensive on his current contract for the Lakersto afford him, George, and James in a practical way.
