While the Golden State Warriors, winners of three of the last four National Basketball Association titles, remain the favorites at minus-110 - meaning that a gambler would have to wager $110 to win $100 - the Lakers and the Boston Celtics are next at 7/2, followed by the Rockets at 7/1. In that time, his agent, Rich Paul, had conversations with the Cleveland Cavaliers and reportedly a meeting with the Philadelphia 76ers. You have continuously stated that whether you stayed in Cleveland or went to Los Angeles or anywhere else, the decision would be made based on wherever your family wanted to go.

The former second-round pick has been one of the most outspoken Lakers fans in the Raiders locker room, but Khalil Mack has been one of LeBron James' biggest advocates.

There are those who believe James relishes a challenge.

The Sixers on Sunday will get a crack at selling James' agent on the idea.

The NBA's online store is already selling Lakers jerseys with James' name on the back.

After the Cavaliers lost the series last month in just four games, James would not be drawn on his future.

Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant. They were 48-11 against Eastern Conference clubs in the playoffs.

That year, his iconic block on Andre Iguodala was one of the defining moments of the Cavs' Game 7 win over the Warriors. One of general manager Koby Altman's most critical tasks will be deciding whether to retain or trade Kevin Love, who will make nearly $50 million the next two seasons.

While all of Los Angeles is still celebrating the arrival of LeBron James, coach Luke Walton has a lot to figure out heading into opening night.

LeBron's team only managed to come out on top once, three years ago - when he was regarded as pretty much single-handedly winning the Cavs their first ever championship. The 33-year-old had previously said he wanted to finish his career in OH, and although he's leaving again, Cavs fans are more forgiving after he ended the city's 52-year sport title drought in 2016.

Shortly after the announcement, James posted a three-photo tribute to Cleveland fans on his Instagram account.

"Thank you Northeast Ohio for an incredible 4 seasons", Akron-native James wrote. "This will always be home".
