But now the real fun begins.
James is a free agent and the rumors are already running wild.
While no one knows for sure what route James will take, anyone can bet money on his decision. And right now, you're winning the least if you bet on the Lakers.

This may come as a surprise to some because the Houston Rockets have been rumored as a favorite for some time now. They're still given the second-best odds while some reports this week emerged that the fit may not be too good in Houston.
The Sixers are tied for the next best odds with the Cavs while the Celtics, Spurs, Warriors, Clippers and Heat are all pretty big long shots.
It will be extremely interesting to see what LeBron decides this summer. If he does choose the Lakers and teams up with Lonzo Ball, it may make for one of the most entertaining offseasons and upcoming seasons in NBA history.
