Rockets ‘not a realistic’ option for James

Rockets ‘not a realistic’ option for James”

The oddsmakers believe that James will land with the Los Angeles Lakers, who have been positioning themselves for this summer for years.

On the flip side: James, as a singular force, is doing more than he has ever had to do for one team on this stage.

Since returning to the Cavaliers, James steered Cleveland into four straight finals appearances including a monumental upset of the Golden State Warriors who led 3-1 at one point in the 2016 NBA Finals. The whispers I repeatedly heard last weekend in Oakland suggest that the Warriors were caught somewhat by surprise by how aggressive James was from the jump, knowing that he frequently (and openly) regards Game 1s as feel-out expeditions.

The Cavaliers and the Warriors are facing each other in the NBA Finals for the fourth consecutive year.

The Philadelphia 76ers are the best team that can sign a free agent to a max salary contract.

The Rockets finished first place in the West this past season, winning the most games in franchise history behind the MVP play of Harden and the addition of LeBron's friend Chris Paul, and they only came one win away from defeating the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals these playoffs. Yeah, that's a team that could challenge Golden State.

He's most often been linked to the Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets and Philadelphia 76ers, but National Basketball Association free agency is enough of a circus that really anything can happen.

Interestingly, James's all-time finals record against the Warriors now stands at 1-3 and pairing him with Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry would greatly increase the chances of improving his finals slate.

How long does James have to stretch this series to earn similar consideration?

Wentz is apparently James' favorite football player after all. They were there to bring James back with them to Philly.
