Adrian Wojnarowski said LeBron James might join his buddy Chris Paul in Los Angeles for the basketball version of “The Golden Girls.”
Not only is there no guarantee he’s coming back, I'm not sure there’s an expectation he's re-signing there.
I think they feel, I think within Cleveland and around the league, they feel that he’s very much in play to leave again and likely head out West to one of the two L.A. teams.
The news of Jerry West, who help build the Golden State Warriors roster, switching cities could entice James to bolt out west(pun intended).

Is there a pattern here? James left Miami after a failed championship repeat. James leaves Cleveland after another failed championship repeat?
Rumors aside, chances of a “Banana Boat” team seem highly unlikely, unless the players involved toss financial considerations aside.
The uncertainty of how the other Eastern Conference teams shake out come October, makes nailing the upcoming draft and catching a whale crucial this summer.
