Rockets 'not a realistic option' for LeBron James in free agency

The Rockets have been considered a frontrunner to land LeBron James if he becomes a free agent this summer, but that may not be the case.

And Martin envisages the two All-Stars taken their talents to Madison Square Garden to help reignite the Knicks' franchise.

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) and Golden State Warriors center Jordan Bell (2) go for a rebound in game three of the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena. An ESPN report from a few months ago suggested that James would meet with the Warriors. Houston had the best record in the 2017-2018 regular season and almost upset the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals.

The Los Angeles Lakers are known to be pursuing two superstar free agents this offseason and have cleared enough cap space to sign two.

The Cavaliers and the Warriors are facing each other in the NBA Finals for the fourth consecutive year.

LeBron James may only have one game left in this city.

James has won three National Basketball Association titles and three Finals MVP awards.

Interestingly, James's all-time finals record against the Warriors now stands at 1-3 and pairing him with Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry would greatly increase the chances of improving his finals slate.

While it's certainly true that the Cavaliers play far better at Quicken Loans Arena than they do on their travels - having won eight in a row at home since a Game 1 loss to in in the opening round of the playoffs - James could well be running out of ideas to compensate for the talent deficit on his team. Cleveland went 33-49 before James returned to the organization in 2014.

Certain teams that have made a case on signing James in the upcoming free agency include but are not only limited to the Boston Celtics, Houston Rockets, and the San Antonio Spurs. We know they're not coming back to beat the Warriors down 3 games.
