Chris Bosh made the sports talk show rounds Thursday morning and when asked where he thinks his former teammate LeBron James will end up next season, Bosh was pretty clear on his vote — Houston.
“I would guess that he goes to Houston,” said Bosh. “It’s like the next Avengers movie… I think with the dynamic that Houston has, you can argue that they could have taken Golden State down this year.”
Bosh said that if it’s about titles for LeBron, Houston is the place.
“I think if you want to compete for a championship, you go to Houston,” said Bosh. “I don’t really see anywhere else being able to (compete for that) right away next year. If you look at the Warriors, they’re dominating the league. As a competitor, you want to see someone knock them off. It’s the nature of the game. I think he would have the best chance teaming up in Houston.”
Hosts Skip Bayless and Colin Cowherd both countered with the latest talking point, that Chris Paul doesn’t want to take a penny less than the max so, therefore, it’s not really possible to get LeBron to the Rockets. Bayless also said it would take unloading Clint Capela. Bosh still wasn’t dismissing the idea.
“Don’t underestimate Daryl Morey,” said Bosh. “He’s a smart guy. I think he can figure out a way. If anybody can, he can figure out a way to keep more of that team intact.”
