The BIGGEST question remains. Where will Lebron play next season?

Right after the ousting of Cleveland from the NBA Playoffs, the talks about where LBJ plays next season has loomed all over the NBA. This year's Free agency is the best Free Agency I have ever witnessed, and ofcourse the reigning NBA MVP is the top prize. The big question remains though, where will Lebron play next season? My take on the whole thing: 1. Cleveland Cavaliers - There's no place like home(Or is there?). Cleveland has benefited from his skills for the whole duration of his 1st contract, and while there has been no trophies to show, it is evident that Lebron can turn mediocre teams into instant contenders by just having him on the lineup. There will always be people who would think that Lebron would want to seek a larger market. If Lebron packs up and wins a title with another superstar on another team, he is still revered as a team; But if he turns the championship tortured city of Cleveland and it's mediocre team to World Champs, he is revered as a basketball God. 2. New York Knicks - The Knicks have been longing for this summer as early as a season ago. They have done everything to ensure enough cap space to go after any superstar they would set their eyes on, especially the biggest prize of them all, Lebron. It helps to have a storied franchise and being the Mecca of basketball. 3. New Jersey Nets - The Nets are rebuilding, and the Nets are on a good note. With the 3rd pick in the draft, tons of free cap space, and moving to a new home, the good things never seem to end. What better ending that to sign up NBA's most dominating player as a centerpiece? 4. Chicago Bulls - This here is my wildcard. The Bulls will always be MJ's team, and Phil already rejected the idea of coming back to coach for them. What Chicago does have is a young core that could entice the King since he has been longing for a good support group ever since. Rose - James seems like an amazing combination, and with enough cap space and recent success, this doesn't seem too much of a longshot.

I want Lebron going to the Chicago Bulls, playing alongside Derick Rose and Joakim Noah. This is a very good scenario, that is, giving the Bulls a chance to make a championship run next season. Lebron has so many options and decisions to be made in the offseason. One option is to play with Dwyane Wade, provided that Wade will stay in Miami.

There was need a while back about Wade campaigning and trying to attract other top free agents to come aboard the Miami boat. Indeed there will be a dip in either superstar if that happens. I think if Lebron goes on to another team and wants to pick another marquee free agent to come with him, his best pick would be either Bosh or Amare. Both players can contribute on statistical categories other than scoring, they are both dominating presences, and most of all, there will be no conflict in position. The only teams that could easily make this possible are New York and New Jersey, other teams would have a harder time trying to make this happen. Still, you can never tell, NBA post season is a crazy circus.

Well maybe the conflict can run in Lebrons Love of the point position. Maybe it will be solved by the coach team. Harris loves to run like Lebron. If they stick lebron to a SF position or PF position that will maybe compliment Harris's play.. Hehehe Well im confused now.

See if you have a player with a force as dominating as LBJ, you want him attacking the basket all the time. The least you would want is an offensive force looking for assists rather than being aggressive. It is always good to have others involved in the offense but as far as being the number 1 option in offense, Lebron is the cream of the crop. The wing is always where his physical dominance belongs, not on the point.

Yeah I think that will be a great place for Lebron. But LBJ will have to decide were he really want to go as far as play's go. He might want to consider taking over the game, not passing the ball and let others handle it.. I mean he's a 2 time MVP. Steve Nash also loves the pass but when he decides to take over her take's over.. Well that's just my opinion on LBJ.. I like him but he needs to choose what he really wants to do,.
