ESPN Analyst Predicts Where LeBron James Will Play Next Season

Will he stay with the Cavs, or go somewhere else?

LeBron James started his career in Cleveland. After leading the Cavs to the NBA Finals in 2007 against the San Antonio Spurs before heading to Miami.

James won two titles with the Heat, before making his way back to Cleveland, where he took down the Golden State Warriors to add a third title to his resume.

Despite his success in Cleveland, many believe he is headed for Los Angeles next year.

ESPN's Zach Lowe took a look at the possible destinations for LeBron to play the 2018-19 season.

Put it this way: If you forced me to name which team LeBron is on next season, I'd take the Cavs by a hair over the Lakers. But if you give me Cleveland versus the field, I'm taking the field. LeBron is dominant enough to go anywhere he wants. He could tell almost literally any team, "I'm coming as long you also sign Players X and Y," and that team would make it happen.

Lowe also mentioned Houston as a possible contender.

We'll have to wait a few months for his decision, but the rumors will begin to fly sooner rather than later.
