Smith: LeBron Texted Kevin Durant About Playing In Los Angeles

This morning on ESPN, Stephen A. Smith got social media in an uproar when he said a source told him that James had texted Durant about going to Los Angeles. He intends to opt out of his Warriors contract and sign an extension with the team.

But Durant has insisted he'll stay with Golden State, and according to Smith, even a text from James wasn't enough to sway him. As far as I'm concerned, LeBron James is big-time player. All of these videos can be found on NBA Finals HQ by Chat Sports on Youtube.

Now that James' free agency is almost upon us, it looks as though at least one team is scrambling to trade for Leonard. "If he's telling teams not to pitch him, that tells me he's narrowed his choice to two destinations", Kellerman said.

The two players have been seemingly connected for months as James nears his free agency and it becomes increasingly clear that Leonard is unhappy with his current team, the San Antonio Spurs. "Because now you have the people's MVP and you have, like, the NBA's MVP".

Despite most of the focus in recent stories focusing on LeBron's impending free agent decision, there was a separate story involving LeBron that went viral.

The speculation as to where Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James is going to land in free agency this summer continues to grow, but this may be the most definitive evidence of his plan. That's not the information I got, but I will tell you what I did hear is that behind the scenes Kevin Durant was like, "Why would I do that?"

As arguably the top two players in the National Basketball Association, it's hard to fathom James and Durant joining forces.

Cleveland Cavaliers small forward LeBron James finished second in the voting for the NBA's Most Valuable Player Award for the 2017-2018 regular season when the National Basketball Association announced their honors at Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, California, Monday night.
