Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James playing a familiar tune: Crowquill

Assuming you read the disclaimer and are still here, I would assume you want to hear why Houston can be a good fit for LeBron James.

If more teams had the financial means to afford LeBron without gutting their roster (like, say, the Washington Wizards, New Orleans Pelicans, or Portland Trail Blazers), the Sixers wouldn't be as attractive as they're now made out to be.

Shaquille O'Neal says he hopes LeBron James doesn't make the same mistake he did in the back end of his career.

"My problem toward the end of my career was I was trying to shut everybody up and I was greedy [for more championships]", O'Neal told ESPN recently. For Shaq, this included stops in Phoenix, Cleveland, and Boston.

Otherwise, Doncic will have another playoff game Friday and will be unable to travel to Thursday night's draft. According to ESPN, select teams will still send representatives to Chicago to meet with Porter on Friday.

If James teams up with Paul George with a team such as the Los Angeles Lakers, or even the Sixers, Vice Sports' Michael Pina believes that Damian Lillard would be an ideal fit.

"That's up to LeBron", George said.

But O'Neal doesn't think James needs to worry about winning more championships because his legacy is already established. You can add index pages toward the end, but your book is already set.

And although wherever James winds up, he'll still be chasing the Warriors, Leonard is one of the few talents the 4-time MVP could team up with to instantly present a formidable foe to the 2-time defending National Basketball Association champs.

Judgments on how the report would impact Trump's legal future predictably broke down along party lines. But both insisted bias played no part in their motivations.

"He done already passed up legends; he done already made his mark - he has three rings", O'Neal continued. His mentality now is probably is: 'I want to get four before Steph [Curry] does.' That's probably his mentality now. That makes it hard for them to be a big player in free agency.

James saw his losing record in the NBA Finals increase when the Cleveland Cavaliers were swept by the Golden State Warriors earlier this month, marking his sixth loss in nine appearances. That's probably his mentality now.

That means taking the best prospect at No. 8 or trading the pick for someone who can help LeBron win now. Cleveland can offer him $205 million over five years, while other teams can offer him $152 million over four years.
