There has been lots of speculation, and some sightings, about where LeBron James will end up next season.  The Lakers, Rockets and Cavs are all rumored to be in play.  

According to Stephen A. Smith, one of LeBron’s banana boat buddies claims he wants to play in Los Angeles.  That banana boat buddy is none other than Rockets guard Chris Paul.

Here’s some news that is huge if it pans out. Chris Paul, one of LeBron James’ close friends and banana boat buddy, is reportedly telling people James wants to play in Los Angeles next year.

According to ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith on his radio show Monday, “Chris Paul is telling folks LeBron ain’t trying to come to Houston, he wants to be in L.A.”

If Stephen A. is spitting facts, and he’s never said anything that turned out to be incorrect, then that would be huge news.  

Not only is LeBron’s wife looking at schools in L.A., he’s telling his friend, on one of the teams he’s considering, that he wants to play in L.A., presumably for the Lakers.  It’s almost a done deal at this point.
