In Conclusion, LeBron should choose his team very wisely. Both Miami and the Lakers are in the bottom 10, yet Miami is the clear favorite for his services and the Lakers are in contention. In truth, 4 of the top 5 teams (Rockets, Bulls, Warriors, Clippers) are actually in contention, and thus are realistic destinations. If he joined any of these 4 teams, he’d form a super team that would go down in history. Of course, not all 30 teams are going to court LeBron, as they may not have the money or need for him, but regardless of where he goes, no matter what team, he will create a great team that will go deep into the playoffs.
