    Where do you think he'll play next year? will he stay in cleveland?  Or will he seek other waters elsewhere?  If not in cleveland, then where do you think he could or should play next season?  please discuss.

      He will play in NY, he will suck, and it will be a match made in heaven.

        i think at this point, I don't even think LBJ knows what he wants.  I know from watching and reading the news, he not only wants to win multiple titles, but he also wants to become more established as a global icon.  so it should be interesting to see where he lands.  I doubt he'll sign with miami, since he would have to take a backseat to dwayne wade there.  which would totally interfere with his global icon plans. 

        new york could be interesting since they remind me a lot of how boston was before they got the big three.  however, it's a big if because if he goes there, there's no guarantee another big name like chris bosh or dwayne wade would join him there.  so he could end up on a crappy team if he took that gamble.

        Or he would sign with the nets, who might get the number one pick this year AND they have enough cap space to sign two max deals.

        I would say chicago would be the perfect fit for him, but he would have to get used to playing in jordan's shadow for the remainder of his career. something i don't think james would want.

          My prediction... I am thinking king James, Phil Jackson, Stoudamire... all going to the nets to play (and coach) for the new owner.  He has the money to pay them and he is talking the type of business that james is thinking. He wants to make the nets the first fully international basketball team, which would result in james being even more popular. Jackson wants to win more championships and does not want to take a pay cut from the lakers. and Stat has already said that he wants to go to the nets. I can see if happening....

      I like New York as the Eastern Conference team that he'll choose.  He has a big ego and wants the big stage.  He spent enough time in Cleveland.  I'd like to see him go to Phoenix and Amare could go elsewhere.

    He'll follow the money.

      I don't think money is the issue.  How much can you spend.  He wants to go where he can win a title.

    I think Lebron will be in Chicago.

    Mikhail Prokhorov with the help of Jay Z will lure Lebron into their plan of bringing some basketball back to New York.

    I think the Utah Jazz would be a good fit 4 lebron they need a small forward, to go along with Boozer and Williams.

    My sense is that if Lebron's motivation is winning a championship vs $, he will probably end up in Chicago, especially if Phil Jackson goes there. 

    If he does leave--I sure would like to be at his first game back in Cleveland!

    LBJ record is great, by the time he reached 30 he will be in the same league as Jordan,

    It's Brondemonium man! Listen people I know it's optimistic to think somehow Lebron will end up in Miami, or Chicago, or even New York. But if the King wants to be legendary and I mean truly legendary, he will do it in Cleveland. It's not often that a phenom such as himself happens to get drafted by his home town team, let alone number one overall.What he can do for Cleveland is exactly what Cal Ripken did for Baltimore.And he will be loved unconditionally in Cleveland. Other places sound nice but alot of times the grass looks greener until you get to that otherside. Now honestly the money in the contract will be the same anywhere this isn't baseball or football, Lebron can win anywhere so why leave Cleveland, Cleveland deserves a champion like Lebron will become. If he strips Cleveland of a title and wins elsewhere or wins multiple titles elsewhere he will be hated worse than Kobe by Philly fans! Lebron has a career for life he's trust me and i think he'll choose to be THE ICON in Cleveland rather than a THE Superstar anywhere else.

    He should stay in Cleveland. He's going to find that he's not going to make that much more money in endorsements if he moves to a big market, because he's already an international star known around the world. This isn't 1950, there are cameras everywhere Lebron goes. He's on SportsCenter every night no matter where he's playing. Moving to another market is just going alienate the fans he already has. Cleveland has done everything it can do to provide help for him, and they (the players on the team) have just failed the past 2 years. Can he really do better in New York? That's one of the most mis-managed franchises in sports, and it has been for the past decade. Sure, he'd probably have a better team in Miami, but Lebron needs to realize that to become legendary you build champions around you, you don't go seeking the best team that you can insert yourself into for the easy championship. Michael Jordan didn't win it all in his first few seasons, but the team eventually grew strong around him as he matured.

    Does anybody think he won't take the extra money and stay in Cleveland.  $30 Million is a lot to walk away from.

    He would be smart to go to the Clippers... be the Man in LA and prove he is better than Kobe.  Kobe is hurt, and as good as he is... he is on the decline due to injury.  His finger is messed up for good.

    LA brings exposure and endorsements that could easily exceed the $30 Million.

    Florida has no income tax.  LA and Florida have the Weather.

    I think he'll go back to Cleveland as guaranteed money is hard to walk away from.

    Chicago or Cleveland unless New York makes him an offer he can't refuse.  Too bad, he's not coming to Indy; the Pacers really need some help!

    I can say that it s highly likely and youre points are actually quiite convincing...you always hear the analyst talking about how James is "the most athletic big man they have ever seen" and have you see that commercial where they are talking about that scientist or whatever and talking about his wing span and ability to jump so high for being 250 pounds?
