Odds have been released for where Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James will play next season.

The odds, from BetOnline, are as follow:

  • Cavaliers +250
  • Rockets +250
  • Lakers +400
  • 76ers +500

I’m not going to lie. I’m a little surprised that the Lakers are only +400, which means a $100 bet would return $400 if he chose to go there. The Lakers seem like the obvious choice to me if he chooses the leave Cleveland, which I think he’s leaning towards.

The Lakers have a young squad, they have Lonzo Ball, the team is in one of the two biggest media markets in the country and it’s no secret that LeBron James loves the city.

I could also see major problems with him in Houston. There’d be three massive personalities on the team with James Harden and Chris Paul already there. I’m not sure how well all of those guys will mesh. As for the Lakers, it would be the Lebron show and Lonzo would remain a distant second.

It would appear to me that the Lakers are such an obvious choice, but apparently the oddsmakers disagree.
