The LeBron James Rumor Mill is up and running, now that the 2017-18 NBA season has come to a close, and the Los Angeles Lakers may have a geographic leg-up on the competition for the Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star's services. There has been chatter on Reddit that James has already enrolled his two sons, Bryce and LeBron Jr., in the Brentwood school district in L.A for next year.

"Note this is a complete rumor that is going around, but apparently there have been whispers that Bryce and LeBron Jr have been enrolled in an LA school for next year," Redditor PZinger6 wrote. "This also may be why the oddsmakers have LeBron going to LA as most likely."

As important a consideration as basketball will be for LeBron in determining the next step in his career, he's also made it clear that his children's happiness will come into play.

"The one thing that I've always done is consider my family, understanding especially where my boys are at this point in their age," James said after the Cavs' Game 4 loss to the Golden State Warriors in the 2018 NBA Finals. "They were a lot younger the last time I made a decision like this, four years ago.

"I've got a teenage boy, a preteen, and a little girl that wasn't around (back then) as well. So sitting down and considering everything… But my family is a huge part of whatever I decide to do in my career, and they will continue to be that."

Now older, his sons will be able to voice their feelings on the decision this time. They have spent time in Miami and Akron and even Los Angeles in the summers. His wife, Savannah Brinson, reportedly wants to live full-time in L.A.

Not to mention, James purchased a $23 million L.A home in December 2017. It marks the second L.A. home James owns, both in the Brentwood neighborhood.

According to OddsShark, the Lakers have been placed as the betting favorites to land the four-time MVP this summer.

The Lakers can create more than $70 million in space, and have long been expected to pursue James and All-Star Paul George this offseason. Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has even ramped up his efforts to bring the duo to La La Land.

If President of Basketball Operations Magic Johnson can bring James and George on board, L.A would return almost the entirety of their young and rising group of players aged 24 or younger, including Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart. That group could afford LeBron the opportunity to continue to contend for championships for the foreseeable future-at least until Bryce, his eldest son, is eligible to join his dad in the NBA.
