Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson discusses the novelty of LeBron James joining a young Sixers team while on 900 AM WURD’s Chris Murray Report radio show. Press play below to listen!
While it is widely believed that free agent-to-be, LeBron James would leave the Cleveland Cavaliers for the bright lights of Los Angeles to become a member of the Los Angeles Laker in the summer of 2018, don’t sleep on the city of Brotherly Love.
The coolest part? Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and James could all become teammates.
Aside from James and Simmons sharing the same agent in Rich Paul, mathematics surely make sense.
The Philadelphia 76ers will have tons of cap space this summer and could come pretty close to James’ max of $34 million.
Amir Johnson’s $11 million contract will be off the Sixers’ books and he’d join a young Sixers squad that includes Ben Simmons (21), Joel Embiid (23), Markelle Fultz (19), Dario Saric (23), and Robert Covington (26).
Despite criticism, J.J. Redick has earned on signing his one-year $23 million deal this past summer, if he continues to play well, him re-upping with the Sixers would be a perfect re-sign for Philadelphia because James plays well with shooters.
RESPECT Magazine’s Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson discusses the 2017 Philadelphia 76ers on CNN.
While you’re in suspense for the possibility of this actually happening, you’ll be able to see James and the Sixers on the court at the same time soon. The Sixers and James’ current team, Cleveland Cavaliers play Saturday night at Quicken Loans Arena.
