LeBron James Free Agency

So if you haven’t heard by now, Superstar LeBron James will be in free agency come the 2018-2019 season. His contract of three years worth $99,857,127 is expiring and it’s likely that James could be switching teams.

Earlier this month, there were many rumors going around about LeBron James leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers. The rumors were about him not wanting to be in Cleveland anymore because the Cavaliers were simply just not winning games.

The new play maker, Isiah Thomas, that Cleveland received from trading Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics couldn’t play because of a hip injury. Then starting center Tristan Thompson, injured his calf and is currently still not at full health.

Then after a four game losing streak, the All-Star was obviously frustrated stating, “We have an opportunity to be very good and then you see some the lulls that we have and it’s just very difficult on our team right now.”

The aging LeBron, 32, has one of the most minutes per game in the league and is eventually going to wear out. So, yes, it is very probable that LeBron James could be looking for a better team to join where he doesn’t have to wear him himself out.

But since that four game losing streak, the Cleveland Cavaliers have gone on a ten game winning streak. So who knows what the future has to offer. Hopefully the Cleveland Cavaliers are able to keep winning and show LeBron that he doesn’t have to bear so much weight on his back.
