Wow. There have been multiple sources that say LeBron James will be leaving Cleveland to join a big market team, now that he has brought a championship to Cleveland. Sources are piling up quickly that it will be the Los Angeles Lakers or the Miami Heat.
Don’t believe us? There have been three sources already that have suggested this will happen. The newest one comes from Stephen A. Smith:
“From what I’ve been told, the Lakers and Heat are possiblities as a destination for LeBron James this summer.”

The source that came out Saturday was Bill Simmons:
Other than GSW/Cavs fans, Lakers/Clips fans have the most at stake tonight. LeBron can't move to LA w/o delivering Cleveland a title first.

The most credible and reliable source that came out a few days ago was Adrian Wojnarowski:
One more victory, one more magnificent night at Oracle Arena, and James will get to run off with his buddies again somewhere warm. Miami. Los Angeles. Wherever. There’s a restlessness about James that craves the next big move, the next power play. Franchises are on watch again, believing nothing’s forever in Northeast Ohio. Sooner or later, there’s a belief that James comes into play again, a line of thinking that his inner circle has done nothing to dissuade. As for James himself, well, he has gone so far as to publicly describe an end-of-career scenario that doesn’t include Cleveland.

The evidence is piling up extremely fast and if this actually happens, you can expect the world will go absolutely nuts. The Los Angeles Lakers looking like one of the most likely destinations as they have all the cap room in the world and the biggest market. Los Angeles is looking to get back into contention so this would be a no brainer move.
