LeBron could enter the mogul stage of his career by going to the Lakers
It was reported over the weekend that LeBron is no longer actively recruiting players to play in Cleveland. Many speculate that this coming season with the Cavs could be his last, and Colin thinks at this stage of his career, LeBron could take the next step in his career – from superstar athlete to mogul.
LeBron may see that given his age and the Warriors dominance that his days of winning titles is over, and a move to the Lakers would allow him to finish his playing career in a highly visible setting and give him a springboard into his post-basketball career.
Houston has made itself into a free agency hotspot, Boston sits and waits
Two weeks ago, Houston wasn’t being discussed as a major free agency destination, but following Daryl Morey’s trade for Chris Paul, there are multiple reports that the Rockets have quickly become a desired destination for free agents, and veterans like Carmelo Anthony, who has said he would waive his no-trade clause to join the Rockets.
Morey manufactured this buzz by aggressively moving to acquire Paul and join the NBA superteams arms race. Celtics GM Danny Ainge, on the other hand, has continued to hold onto a mountain of assets and has yet to parlay them into stars.
Among NBA players, Houston is happening, Boston is not, and it can all be traced back to the philosophies of their two GM’s. Morey is making things happen, Ainge is waiting for them to happen.
