Oh, and where LeBron James will suit up next year.

Bodog.com put up the numbers, and the smart money doesn’t pay so well.

Cleveland Cavaliers         1/3
New York Knicks               3/1
New Jersey Nets              10/1
Dallas Mavericks              25/1
Miami Heat                       35/1
Chicago Bulls                   40/1
Los Angeles Clippers       40/1
Olympiakos S.F.P.            100/1
Any Other Team               18/1

For you who aren’t great at the odds, that means if you think he is going to stay in Cleveland you have to risk $300 for every $100 you win. Not a great return on investment. If you think he is going to the Clippers you can bet $100 to win $4,000. You’d also be throwing $100 away, better to send that money to me so it can be put to good use. Like I nice Bordeaux.

And yes Bulls fans, you have about the same chances as the Clippers. Enjoy.
