Bread-crumb enthusiasts rejoice: LeBron James has reportedly, it seems, maybe, potentially, possibly narrowed down his list of free-agent landing spots to four teams.
You know, one for every MVP award he’s racked up.
Multiple sources have “consistently” told The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor that James will choose from a tantalizing quartet. Don’t worry, Cleveland. Your Cavaliers are in the running. So, too, are the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers.
Listen closely enough, and you can hear Dashboard Confessional’s “Vindicated” blaring from the Google Home a trench coat-wearing Sam Hinkie is holding up above his head outside NBA Commissioner Adam Silver’s window. Strain your ears even harder, and you might also detect tears-filled “Whatever, we didn’t want him anyway” rallying sobs from Golden State Warriors fans in the background.
