What next for LeBron James? 3 flawless fits, 3 teams to avoid

And LeBron James made it clear that, after 15 seasons, he still is in what he described as "championship mode", and his decision on what route to take in free agency will be driven by the desire to surround himself with "cerebral players". It has helped inspire, challenge and mold LeBron into the player he is today.

For some reason, when splitting hairs between Jordan and LeBron's talent level, rings are counted.

LeBron James's second go-around with the Cleveland Cavaliers may very well be over.

"At the end of the day, for me, staying around the game, being around the game will be something I'll probably do for the rest of my life, either while I'm playing for this later stage of my career, advising people in the National Basketball Association or whatever the case may be", James said.

But the odds to win the 2019 NBA title posted at the Westgate sports book reflect the most likely landing spots for the four-time NBA MVP and imminent free agent. However, Chamberlain ran into a formidable foe in the Bill Russell-led Boston Celtics, a balanced squad whose two-way dominance allowed them to win eleven rings from the 1956-1957 season to the 1968-1969 season.

Thiem was on the couch, watching on TV, in 2005, when Nadal earned his first Grand Slam trophy in Paris at age 19. Nadal held for 5-4, and Thiem basically handed over the next game - and the set - with four mistakes.


So, who has a legitimate shot at getting him? My responsibility is to whatever team I play for.

That's what it's all about, and that's what the top players understand.

James slapped high-fives and wore a look that said more than the season is over for him.

LeBron has shown his dominance largely through illustrating his mastery of the game; climbing multiple leaderboards and his many statistical marvels - this is where he finds his advantage.

You can say what you will about Kevin Durant right now, but his decision to leave the OKC Thunder and join the Golden State Warriors in the 2016 offseason has paid off.

The loss of Irving made the Cavaliers a much less risky team.

"K.D.'s been awesome these last two years, especially in the Finals and so deserving of back-to-back Finals MVPs", Curry said.
