National Basketball Association title odds hint at LeBron’s next team

For the record, the Sixers have a pretty good shot at getting James as far as Las Vegas oddsmakers go. Most of his teammates sat quietly, still in uniform, at their lockers.

In Games 2, 3 and 4, James scored 29, 33 and 23 points, respectively, as his team was swept by Golden State.

James has options as to where to go.

The Miami Heat opened at 20-1 but have since been bumped up to 50-1.

James had suffered a hand injury after the Cavs' overtime loss in Game 1 on May 31.

"We put in as many teams as he could possibly go to and raised the Cavaliers, thinking he won't go there", Westgate sports book manager and National Basketball Association oddsmaker Jeff Sherman said.

"I hope he stays".

"We would make Philadelphia the favorite", he said. "But after a game like that, I'm not in any position to talk about that. I think as long as he feels comfortable doing it long term, we want him".

Slate's Craig Fehrman put it simply: "The NBA has been bad for two years, and it's Kevin Durant's fault".

And if LeBron doesn't know yet, how could Cleveland be ruled out?

Southgate could also be looking for stability in midfield and Henderson will be a prime contender for a place alongside Eric Dier. Tasked with leading the line Rashford, partner-in-crime Jamie Vardy was almost in for a second but was well thwarted by Navas.

Naturally, all eyes will be on LeBron James, who could decide who wins the National Basketball Association championship in 2018-19 simply by where he signs.

"Anything is possible", Love said, via Matthew Florjancic of WYKC.

"I get asked all the time about MJ, LeBron, and it's such a hard question to ask", Kerr said, according to a USA Today report on Saturday. But I like to be here.

But there is history with the Cavaliers, who won the 2016 championship with James leading the way.

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".

"The Bay Area allows me to be who I am, as a city, to just blend in, and the team allows me to do the same thing", Durant said.

The possibility remains that Cleveland could retool and make another run, but doing so would require some serious creativity. There is too much dead weight on the Cavaliers, starting with J.R. Smith. They don't need all but securing just one other all-star would keep James in Cleveland and if he can avenge last week's Finals defeat with another championship out of Cleveland then his legacy would become that much greater. If he re-signs, then the Rockets will again be the biggest threat to Golden State's Western Conference dynasty?

"There were two games that were very winnable", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said in his postmortem after Game 4.

So is this end in Cleveland? I've got a teenage boy, a pre-teen and a little girl that wasn't around as well.
