James, whose Cleveland Cavaliers were in a tight contest at home against the Philadelphia 76ers, an eventual 108-97 was driving to the hoop when he found himself confronted by one of the few N.B.A. players he couldn't run through: Joel Embiid, the 76ers' 23-year-old All-Star center.
Days after a Pennsylvania company put up three billboards in OH, urging James to sign with the 76ers, James shot down rumors that he toured private schools in Philadelphia over the All-Star break.
However, among Eastern Conference teams with the best chance to sign James, the Sixers can't be too far off.
Philadelphia 76ers head coach Brett Brown offered up praises of James' evolution in pregame comments.
"He knows", Simmons said when asked about whether James sees what's happening with the Sixers.
"Pennsylvania? Nah", said James, who has three kids and can become a free agent at season's end. But the young Sixers showed poise by scoring the next eight points to seal an impressive win.
Without tampering rules in place involving players making pitches to other players, this likely won't be the first one James gets.
Oh, nothing much. Just dribble behind his back with his left hand, bouncing the ball through teammate Thompson's legs, to split the double, burst into the lane, drive straight into a vertical-leaping Dario Saric, bounce off, double-clutch, and softly bounce the ball in off the backboard with his left hand. James and George Hill hit two free throws each in the final 16 seconds to seal it.
