LeBron James just finished his seventh season and it ends like the previous six ones did, with no ring.
Ironically, Michael Jordan won his first of six NBA Championships in his seventh season. After coming up short to the Orlando Magic in the Eastern Conference Finals last year, it seemed like James would get it done in his “lucky” seventh season.
If he had won a championship this season he could’ve been added to the list of seven’s like; Seven Deadly Sins, Seven Seas, Seven Ancient Planets, building of the Earth in seven days, Air Jordan, and then, King James.
But it was just not meant to be for the King. And now the question is what will happen next for LeBron. He will remain a Cavalier? He will leave for the Big Apple? Or join with Jay-Z and the Russian millionaire? Maybe he will team up with D-Wade in South Beach?
For the first time in his career James has a chance to be pursued and pursue many different possibilities. The NBA could look very different next year. The balance of power among the teams in the NBA could be shifted dramatically in the Eastern Conference.
Maybe in the West, but the only team in the Western Conference that has a shot at signing LeBron is the Clippers. I don’t think James would ever go to the Clippers. I think they are more cursed than the entire city of Cleveland.
No matter what happens with James one thing is certain. He is not, nor will he ever be Michael Jordan. Nobody will ever be Jordan. Next to Bryant, James is the only thing comparable to Jordan. I really don’t think that James will be the best in the league much longer. Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder had the best season of any NBA team. I think Durant will overtake the “King” soon.
