Though many people are throwing down bets that James will head to the Sixers (even though he told Kevin Hart otherwise), the Lakers, or the Rockets, there are still other contenders who would like a chance to throw their hat in the ring.
I’ve also been advised that the ever-persuasive San Antonio Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich is bound to try to force his way into the conversation to sell James on the merits of South Texas.
This should come as no surprise, considering Pop and James have a close relationship. On a number of occasions, Popovich has called James “very, very special” and come to the player’s defense. Meanwhile, James shed tears on live TV after being told that Pop’s wife Erin passed away earlier this year.
It’s not that crazy of a proposition. After all, the Spurs have several more NBA championship titles under their belt than the 76ers or the Rockets. On top of that, Pop is the best coach in the league. Dejounte Murray already agrees adding LeBron to the Spurs roster would be a fantastic idea, but only time will tell where James decides to go, or if he even leaves the Cavs after all.
