A recent analysis by The Ringer has already begun to speculate about where LeBron James would play after leaving the Los Angeles Lakers. That is if he finally decides not to leave, but opts for a new team instead of the 17-time NBA champion team. Being unfortunately eliminated by the Denver Nuggets will make any superstar doubt his abilities, but this will also happen for a veteran player.
As the “king” makes his decision, every NBA team that has a real shot at signing him will rush to see what real options they have. Assuming he doesn’t receive but still leaves the Lakers, there are several teams that include Stephen Curry’s Golden State Warriors. Kevin O’Connor Ringer wanted to explore the possibilities of going to the Bay Area. But this is nothing more than speculation.
LeBron James and his doubts about his future in the NBA.
The Cavaliers have the best odds of getting LeBron
Several betting sites have decided to establish the next level of odds for LeBron in his NBA career. Naturally, staying in the league is the most viable and likely option for him. The retreat is in second place at +500. Then, a comeback with the Cleveland Cavaliers is within possibility at +1200. Oddly enough, the Knicks, Heat and Warriors are tied at +1500.
In terms of percentages, staying with the Eagles has an 87.5% chance of staying with the current team. It probably won’t go anywhere, but it’s always exciting to see LeBron wearing another uniform.
Two big NBA stars finally together?
Plus, playing with other superstars brings a high level of excitement to everyone who has followed the King’s career since the early 2000s, without a doubt the most exciting prospect is finally seeing Steph and LeBron play together.
From a tactical point of view, O’Connor notes that, despite being a veteran of both star states, both would benefit each other. They do not agree that James Kyrie Irving himself signed for the Lakers before coming to the Dallas Mavericks. With Stephen Curry giving him open opportunities, maybe they can help each other to win their fifth NBA championship as teammates.
