There is no doubt that LeBron James is the best player in basketball. Ever since fleeing the Cleveland Cavaliers in the summer of 2010, LeBron and the Miami Heat have now gone on to four straight NBA Finals. While James could win his third week in the next two weeks, there have been rumors saying that he will leave in free agency. Here are five potential landing spots for the four-time MVP.
Even when you take a look at Mark Cuban, he seems like a guy you cannot trust. The one thing we know for sure about Cuban is that he wants his team to win more than anything. That being said, it wouldn't surprise me at all to see the Dallas Mavericks throw a ton of money at LeBron. Imagine a core of LeBron, Dirk Nowitzki and Monta Ellis.
With Phil Jackson running the New York Knicks, the No. 1 goal is to win championships. That's what Jackson has been all about in his time in the NBA. LeBron almost picked New York his first time around in free agency, and it wouldn't surprise me at all to see the Knicks have interest in him again. LeBron would immediately replace Carmelo Anthony in the starting lineup.
The Chicago Bulls have taken a backseat to the Indiana Pacers and the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference, but having LeBron in their starting lineup would immediately give them some offense and would finally give Derrick Rose a player to work with. If LeBron goes to Chicago, it would be his team and not Rose's, but the two of them could work perfectly next to each other.
While it would cause a lot of drama and a lot of chaos, the Cleveland Cavaliers would surely welcome back LeBron. The Cavs didn't have the right cast around James when he was a Cavalier, but there is reason to believe that the Cavs could be a real good team in the future. Cleveland has Kyrie Irving, Anthony Bennett, Tristan Thompson, and the first overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.
The weather is always sunny and the water is always blue in Miami. Those aren't the reasons why Miami is the best fit for James, but seriously, why would he leave the Heat? He has had so much success there with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. LeBron could win his third ring this year and he could win his fourth, fifth, and sixth if he stays in Miami. It will be interesting to see where LeBron takes his talents to next, or if he stays put in Miami.
