There’s certainly a ton of smoke swirling around this story.

LeBron James’ next destination remains at the center of just about any discussion about the NBA and you’ll never guess where the latest rumors have him landing.

Ric Bucher reported that many executives across the league believe he’s already somehow made up his mind and will eventually play for the Los Angeles Lakers.

It’s a prediction that makes almost as much sense as Jim Gray thinking Paul George has done the exact same thing and was ready to announce the big news on live television before quite possibly the biggest fight of the last 50 years.

Spoiler Alert: He did not announce his free agency decision a full year in advance on live television before quite possibly the biggest fight of the last 50 years.

After the guys talk about those two things, they get into player comps, building off the logic that Kevin Durant used. Basically, people should use a little more thought than which NBA star a prospect looks like as the basis for analysis.
