The big question we are all asking LeBron James at this time: Where are you going to end up? Well, it most likely won't be in Houston.

 

Stephen A. Smith said on his ESPN podcast on Monday that James' close friend Chris Paul is telling  Rocket fans to not to get their hopes up for the highly-demanded free agent. 

 

The Rockets guard reportedly said that James doesn't want to be in Houston and would rather end up in Los Angeles.

He does not like Houston as a city. So, that would require him moving to a place that hes not crazy about.

"Chris Paul is telling folks LeBron aint trying to come to Houston, he wants to be in L.A.," Smith said. 

 

Akron Beacon Journal reporter Marla Ridenour also said a similar sentiment last week about James not liking Houston as a city. 

 

"I heard this from his own lips when we were in Houston this season," Ridenour told ESPN Radio. "He does not like Houston as a city. So, that would require him moving to a place that hes not crazy about."
