    Since we're listing each person's opinion...

    Jalen said on the pre-game he doesn't think Lebron can go ANYWHERE and win next year, no chance against Golden State no matter where he goes so he should stay in Cleveland. Don't uproot your family, don't tarnish your career by going to a team that can't beat Golden State. Ruled out all of the teams specifically, including Houston, as being good fits.

    Pierce seemed to be angling for Boston (lol of course) which Jalen laughed off and then Pierce said if it's for his career after basketball he should go to LA.

    Lol it’s funny most of them are acting dumb saying Lebron should go to philly or LA. Those teams will get swept by Golden State. Who actually competed with them?

    To be clear jalen doesn’t want him to go anywhere. He doesn’t think he can best golden state no matter where he does

    Why couldn't he win with the Rockets? They'd be the favorites.

    That's just stupid, LeBron with Harden and CP3 has the ability to sweep their way through the entire Playoffs, let alone simply beat GS in a series.

    Yeah but that's pretty stupid. If not for CP3 getting injured, the Rockets would have beat them this year without Lebron. With Lebron, the Rockets beat the Warriors like the Warriors beat the Cavs.

    The Cavs are going to be 1-3 vs GSW in the Finals. They were a Draymond Green suspension away from being down 0-4. Stay on Cleveland and do what? What’s the definition of insanity again?..

    Odd Jalen said that, because just a few days ago I heard him say that we would have beaten GSW if Chris Paul had not gone down.

    Wasn’t Jalen giving Houston as is a chance to beat GS? After witnessing us nearly pull it off with a 3-2 lead and no cp3 and horrible refs, he thinks adding LeBron is no chance?

    Pretty sure LeBron can't give a flying **** what any of those losers think he should go or stay. If he wants to win there is only one option if he chooses somewhere else...welp it's his loss

    Yeah, but does he really feel that way? He knew the Rockets had a legitimate chance at beating the Warriors and said as much.

    If the Rockets added LeBron I think it’s highly likely that it would be more than enough to take down the soon to be champs.

    I think Jalen is just saying that for reasons other than not being able to beat the Warriors. There IS an agenda there.

    I never get this argument, not at all.

    It's like they are saying that if Lebron doesn't play for the Lakers then he won't get opportunities from Hollywood (this is assuming he cares about such a thing.)

    Lebron is one of the best known players in the league. It amazes me people think that you need to play for a big market to make big money. The only movies KD made was when he was in OKC.

    This isn't the 70s anymore. Every game is shown on TV or the Internet. There is no big market bump for players. Lebron hasn't played in one of the top Markets (Miami is not a top 5 media market, in fact, Houston is above it) all of his career and he's still one of the top known athletes in any sport in the world...

    Yet you are going to hear ALL offseason how if Lebron wants extra opportunities he needs to play for the Lakers. Get ready for this. As if Lebron has to chase marketing opportunities as if they don't come to him...

    Not to mention that LeBron has a house (if not multiple) in LA. He spends a good amount of time during the summer in LA.
