LeBron James’ future in the NBA is a little uncertain as rumours of him moving to Philadelphia next season have become rife.
Philly fans have taken the rumours very seriously and have used various techniques to allure the King to Philadelphia. From buying billboards in Cleveland persuading LeBron to come to Philly, to having a lot of campaigns in Philly itself, fans are doing all they can to persuade James to come play for the sixers.
And while all of it seemed like a distant dream initially, a reporter claimed that James was in fact looking for schools in Philadelphia over the All-Star weekend.
Lebron who has been at the centre of this mini trade saga, was bombarded with questions about his trade recently, and he replied a firm negative, saying that the rumours were ‘disgusting’.
“Pennsylvania? Nah. What are you talking about?” James said.
“Over the All-Star break, I was on vacation and then went to Los Angeles.” he added.
The whole ‘school searching’ rumour was in fact news to LeBron, as it was only when a reporter told him about it that he actually got to know about it.
“That’s disgusting,” is all he wanted to say about the entire ‘school searching’ rumour.
LeBron is currently having a good individual season with the Cavs, however the Cavs haven’t quite set the regular season on fire this time round, missing a lot of key players and dealing with the departure of Kyrie Irving to the Celtics.
While James has rubbished all rumours of a trade to the sixers, a lot can change between now and the start of the next season.
