LeBron James always promises some crazy highlights, but the one he put on for his home crowd last night against the Philadelphia 76ers was on a whole other level.
Not only did he break the double team coming off a pick from Tristan Thompson, he nutmeged Thompson on a behind the back move that finished with an and-one basket.
This was one of the better highlights that we have seen from the king in recent memory.
There has been a lot of talk surrounding what James will elect to do following this season, as the three-time NBA champ’s contract will end this offseason.
Many predict that James will stay in his hometown of Cleveland. Others, on the other hand, say that there is no chance that he stays as this offseason is filled with premiere free agents such as DeMarcus Cousins and Chris Paul.
Frontrunner in the conversation include the Los Angeles Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers and Miami heat, among other teams.
At the current state, he does not stand a chance to take down the Golden State Warriors with the team he has now; he would either have to join another team alongside another all-star or recruit premiere players to come to Cleveland.
Right now, this is all speculation and James has not said anything about his future plans when asked about it as he is in the middle of his season right now.
