Houston Rockets: A Possible Destination For LeBron James?

Waking up, First Take is something that is a normality of my morning. The popular ESPN talk show discussed the future of four time MVP, LeBron James.

LeBron is always a topic of discussion but what analyst Skip Bayless said this morning will resonate with all Houston Rockets fans. The conversation brought out many gems of information concerning the possible trade.

“Signing Dwight showed the rest of the world Houston is a tier one free agent destination, and Lesley Alexander Rockets owner has that aggressiveness in his DNA and he has a track record of getting players, such as Cylde Drexler, Tracy McGrady James Harden Dwight Howard. Daryl Morey is known to get things done when it’s least expected.”

All of these things make it a real possibility for Houston to put the pressure to move for James.

Below are the quotes from Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless taken from the @ESPN_FirstTake Twitter account:

With all the talks of Carmelo, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving, many people never even considered the acquisition of LeBron James. We all know what LeBron brings to the table and he has always had dreams of playing alongside other stars (as seen with his choice to leave Cleveland to head to Miami). As Dwyane Wade ages, LeBron might look for another pair of stars to team up with. What better pair than James Harden and Dwight Howard?

It isn’t as simple as it sounds, however. The Houston Rockets will have to make significant roster moves in order to accommodate for the salary cap and make room for James, but if James does decide that he wants to join, the Rockets would most definitely make it happen.

Nobody knows exactly will happen in this summer’s free agency but one thing is certain, LeBron James will have a big decision to make; stay in Miami with an aging Dwyane Wade or move to a team with young talent in “Fear the Beard Harden” and “Superman Dwight Howard.”

Skip Bayless also said, “If he were a betting man, he’d bet that the Rockets will get one or the other Carmelo or LeBron.”

What do you think Rocket fans? Do you think LeBron James will entertain the idea of coming to Houston?
