LeBron reveals its four dream teams
Superstar LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers becomes a Free Agent in the summer of 2018. Four NBA teams have high hopes of signing the contract.
LeBron James will once again test the market as a Free Agent in summer 2018 (NBA LIVE on TV on SPORT1 US and in LIVESTREAM).
Many NBA teams will then be throwing dollar notes around. However, according to the latest media reports, many clubs can save themselves the trouble.
Kevin O’ Connor of The Ringer has now revealed that the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar will only give four teams a chance to commit.
James’ wish list will look like this: Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets, Philadelphia 76ers and the Cavs, where he could take his “Player Option” for another year or sign a new long-term contract.
The 33-year-old is once again playing at MVP level this season, scoring 27.0 points, 9.0 assists and 8.4 rebounds per game.
However, the Cavs are only third in the Eastern Conference behind the Boston Celtics and the Toronto Raptors. Only the second championship with Cleveland – or at least a decent play-off performance – could prevent a goodbye from Ohio.

The superstar has already left his homeland once – in 2010 – and then won his first two NBA championships (2012 and 2013) together with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.
The Miami Heat jersey was worn by the fourfold Most Valuable Player (MVP) until the summer of 2014, before he once again took off.
As a Free Agent, the prodigal son finally returned to Cleveland to finally win the long-awaited first NBA championship with the Cavs. James kept his promise in 2016.
But the lost NBA finals in 2015 and 2017 against the Golden State Warriors are still gnawing at him today.
Before the Trade Deadline in spring 2018, the Cavaliers did everything they could to satisfy the “King” and increase the chances of winning the title: Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr., George Hil and Rodney Hood came to Ohio via trade – and are expected to help James win his fourth championship ring.
But if this doesn’t work out, the Lakers, Sixers and Rockets can have justified hopes of signing the contract.
In Houston, James could form a new triumvirate with his “Best Buddy” Chris Paul and James Harden. In Philadelphia, the two-time Olympic champion is said to have been looking for private schools for his children during the All-Star break. And a triumvirate with Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid could be quite impressive.
What speaks for the Lakers is that the 14-time All-Star has a villa in Los Angeles and could boost his career in Hollywood after his career.
The summer of 2018 is sure to be a hot one, as the NBA team that can fish for LeBron James has the best chances of winning the championship.
