Who Will Coach LeBron Next Season?

It doesn't matter.

LeBron James is not going to stay in Cleveland or be lured away just because of the team's coach.

It also won't be for money. He's getting a maximum contract wherever he goes (though the amount will be slightly more if he plays for the Cavaliers) in addition to his lucrative endorsement deals with Nike, McDonald's, State Farm, Coca-Cola, etc.

King James (or Prince James if you're a Skip Bayless fan) is either going to play where he has the best chance of winning a championship or because he wants to move to a bigger and better city.

Even though they have failed to reach the NBA Finals the past three seasons, staying in Cleveland is still his best shot at winning a championship.

However, I'm sick of watching this Cavaliers team. I want LeBron to move to New York, Chicago or Miami just for a change. And I think he will.

But whatever he decides to do, it won't be because of the coach. So ESPN can throw around all the Phil Jackson, John Calipari and Mike Krzyzewski rumors they want. But that's not going to explain which jersey LeBron will be sporting next season.
