    Default LeBron James to Toronto?

    What are the chances LBJ signs with Toronto? Top team in the east and have some all-stars on their team. Is it realistic to think he goes North of the border or a pipe dream?

    Very low chance i would say.. The raptors are top (regular season) team in the east but have shown't they can compete at a high playoff level let alone beat the warriors. I would say Philly/ Boston?? is the most realistic option if he want's to win now and stay in the east,If he wants to go out West i would say Houston is the best option.

    I'd say low chance but it's not zero. He likes going somewhere to assemble an all-star team and the Raptors already have star players in place.

    Lebron to Philadelphia, according to an unknown Twitter account that is now set to private

    I'd put Lebron to Toronto at about 0%; it just won't/can't happen.

    The reporting I've heard is that James only has 4 teams on his list: Cleveland, Lakers, Rockets, 76ers. Even the media outlets speculating on top 10 destinations don't include Toronto.

    The chances are negative 15%.

    Lebron wants to win a championship. He said repeatedly in his post-game interview that he's still in "championship mode". Why would he got to the team that he's singlehandedly swept twice?

    Wouldn't they be a vastly upgraded team with Lebron on it though?

    You could say that about every team. He wants to win a championship - not play for a vastly upgraded team.

    I can tell you with 100% certainty that Lebron has no respect for Toronto, nor should he.

    There are more than 4 plausible destinations for him.

    If he's really in championship mode, the Lakers may be tough to make work. They need at least one other star, as well, and they have pieces that didn't work with LeBron in Cleveland.
    10 team Head-to-head true dynasty. Roster 33, draft 2, cut down before season. Start 1 G, 1-2 backup G's, 6 D, 12 F arranged in 4 lines of 3. Only categories that matter are Goals, Assists, Save% with a shutout bonus. Having NHL teammates helps.

    G: F Andersen
    Backup G: Holtby
    D: Hainsey, M Reilly, Carlson, Gustafsson, Klingberg, Letang,
    F1: Couturier, Giroux, MacKinnon
    F2: Schiefele, Wheeler, Guentzel
    F3: Benn, Seguin, Pavelski,
    F4: Point, Stamkos, Tavares

    Bench:
    G: Bobrovsky
    D: Gardiner, Gostisbehere, Schultz, Werenski
    F: Bailey, Johnsson, Killorn, Labanc, JT Miller, Necas, Tuch, Voracek

    Reserve: Datsyuk

    Houston isn't getting Lebron. Paul already has said he's getting nothing less than Max deal, so no way can they afford Lebron, Harden, Capela, and Paul.

    Toronto is getting an interview. Likely one of the first ones too. Toronto since Masai has been there has actually gotten interviews with some top FA recently (Durant, Aldridge, and someone else I forget). 75% chance at an interview, 0.5% chance at signing.

    I think Toronto has a higher chance at signing Lebron than a lot of teams actually, but it's really a 3 team battle at this point. Philly (cap space and the roster), Lakers (only if they PG13 too), and Cleveland (because his family).

    Because there would be no way LeBron's Raptors could get swept by any other LeBron James team.

    He should just start travelling the league signing 1yr contracts - going from top team to top team each year - winning Championships with as many teams as possible.

    Lebronto is a great fit for both sides.
