LeBron James has another big decision to make. He can choose to opt out of his contract this summer and test free agency, or he can return to the Miami Heat. Although he will make whichever team he goes to an instant title contender, let’s take a look at five reasons why the King should stay with the Heat.

Miami was basically a no-show in this year’s Finals, but the team has still made four straight NBA Finals. Not many teams can say they have done that. If LeBron returns to South Beach, there is a good chance that the team makes a fifth straight Finals appearance.

Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh also could test free agency, but if James stays, that should give both stars incentive to stay with Miami as well. After all, LeBron James is the best player in the game and could make any team a contender.

LeBron James is a franchise player. Teams build around him, not the other way around. Sure, he could go wherever he wants, but why not stay on a team where the fans already love him? James can’t keep doing these big decisions and bounce around from team to team. He needs to become a franchise player, not a player who only sticks around on a team for a few years and then bolts to another team once he is able to opt out.
