Cavs’ LeBron James Creates A Panic Calling Los Angeles ‘Home’ On TwitterBy Ryan Ward
The speculation surrounding LeBron James’ future in the NBA after the upcoming 2017-18 NBA season has already started to run rampant. Many believe the superstar forward will leave the Cleveland Cavaliers after next season and head to the Los Angeles Lakers.
Along with all the drama surrounding Kyrie Irving’s situation in Cleveland and his potential rift with his teammate, LeBron may have dropped a subtle hint on Twitter in a conversation with Jamal Crawford to the masses in terms of his mindset and where he calls home.
May have to make a day trip up there when I'm back home in LA bro!

At this point, the Cavaliers appear to be a mess with it seeming like a foregone conclusion that he’ll leave the team after the upcoming season. Cleveland is a team with no direction and on the verge of losing not one but two superstars.
As for the Lakers, the storied NBA franchise is preparing for LeBron’s potential arrival by clearing cap space and the goal of developing their young stars. Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram will be the focal point for Los Angeles next season as they attempt to steer the team in the right direction.
Los Angeles is hoping to land one or two superstars in free agency next summer with LeBron and Paul George being their potential targets when the time comes. James’ landing with the Lakers appears to be a likely scenario unless something drastic changes over the course of the 2017-18 campaign.
