LeBron James is currently playing in his 15th NBA season and his 11th season with the Cleveland Cavaliers. James left the Cavaliers in 2010 to join the Miami Heat, but he returned to his first NBA team and delivered a championship. The four-time MVP is arguably the best player in the league, and if the Cavaliers don't win it all this season, he might leave them once again.

Being one of the best players in NBA history has its advantages, and one of them is choosing what team to sign with. Without any doubt, there are many potential suitors for James, so he will be able to choose between Cleveland and any other team that offers him a deal.

Houston Rockets are one of the teams that could sign him next summer, and it turns out that Carmelo Anthony planned to team up with LeBron there. Interesting, right?

Melo's plan to form a super team

Before being traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder, Carmelo Anthony tried to form a super team in Houston. The team would include his friends, Chris Paul and LeBron James, and it would be able to take down the Golden State Warriors and win a championship, ESPN's Ian Begley reported.

Unfortunately for Anthony, he was traded to the Thunder, and he couldn't realize his plan. However, it seems that he was very serious about teaming up with his friends, and he really wanted to beat the Warriors. "He went as far as to detail individual matchups between that hypothetical Rockets team and the Warriors," Begley wrote, "surmising that he and the Rockets could take out the Warriors."

Before the trade with the Thunder, the New York Knicks almost traded Anthony to the Houston Rockets.

According to the small forward, the deal was done, but it somehow ended up falling through. If the trade was completed, things could have been much different for the Rockets and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

LeBron to Houston in 2018?

LeBron James has a player option on his contract for the next season and he is expected to decline it.

After that, he will be able to either get a bigger contract from the Cavaliers or choose another NBA team to play for.

Houston Rockets will most likely be one of the frontrunners to sign the veteran small forward. They already have James Harden and Chris Paul on the team, and adding LeBron James would turn them into championship contenders.

At the moment, the Rockets have the best record in the entire league, and they might make some noise in the playoffs. The best part about next year? Carmelo Anthony also has a player option on his contract!
