Where will LeBron James go once he hits free agency?

During the 2014 offseason, when James left the Heat following four visits to the NBA Finals, including championships in 2012 and '13, to return to the Cavaliers, he purposely kept his decision from Wade as the two flew together from Las Vegas to Miami.

"Dan Gilbert believes that he can build a championship team without LeBron, and I think he is looking forward to trying", ESPN's Brian Windhorst said on The Hoop Collective (h/t Ryne Nelson of Slam). Obviously, you saw this year he can get to the Finals no matter what the circumstances are.

James - at least partially - has already revealed as much.

LeBron James will have the next three weeks to contemplate his future with the Cleveland Cavaliers as he's set to hit free agency on July 1.

"Understanding especially where my boys are at this point in their age".

For now, let's take a look at the top five rumored destinations, and whether or not we should buy or sell them as actual contenders for the right to sign the generational talent.

The NBA TV sportscaster said the Cavs falling 108-85 to Stephen Curry's Golden State Warriors served as an end to the debate - even though James is an "amazing" player. "So sitting down and considering everything, my family is a huge part of whatever I'll decide to do in my career, and it will continue to be that".

"I still want to be in championship mode", he said after Game 4 of the Finals.

What either factor will mean for James' upcoming decision will be determined in the coming weeks.

He'll have several options to choose from and the focus of the entire National Basketball Association world will be on the 14-time All-Star in the coming weeks. And while everyone has an opinion on what James should do and why he should do it, his choice will ultimately come down to a single decision-maker. I knew that question would come, but I like to be here.

"I have no idea at this point", James told reporters.
