  LA school denies that LeBron's son is committed there The intrigue over where LeBron James will play next season is so intense that people are looking to his kids for potential hints. Over the past year, there have been rumors about LeBron and his family checking out schools in different cities. The thinking is that LeBron could leave Cleveland as a free agent this summer and his kids will need to attend school, so that could tip the James’ intentions.

LeBron James won ' t be signing with the 76ers in free agency this summer, according to Charles Barkley was emphatic that James wouldn’t be taking his talents to Philadelphia “in any form, shape That one's got its challenges, but L.A. has its challenges too. I don't think the question with Philly is

It hasn't been a good week for the LeBron-to-Philadelphia crowd and former 76er Charles Barkely isn't interested in giving Philly fans much hope.

During an appearance on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia, Barkley told Mike Missanelli that he doesn't see LeBron James joining the Sixers for basketball reasons. Here were his thoughts, as transcribed by Ryne Nelson of SLAM.

Where in your mind does LeBron end up? And why not Philly?

Barkley: "Well, he's not coming to Philly because him, Simmons and Embiid don't go together. But listen, number one, I don't know and I don't care. I'm not gonna let [LeBron] hijack like all these idiots on ESPN. They're going to talk about it nonstop every single day.

LeBron James : Charles Barkley makes SHOCK Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant claim. “I hate this fake comparison. LeBron is great in his own right,” Barkley told NBA on TNT. Which team will LeBron James play for next season? “I got Kobe six and I got LeBron seventh.

"LeBron's a great, great player. He's a great, great man. I hope he stays in Cleveland. But I'm not going to let this dude hijack my life because I don't care, number one. But the whole sports world, we sit around like idiots and worry about where this dude is going every day."

I just want to know if he's coming to the Sixers.

Barkley: "He's not coming to the Sixers because he needs the ball, Simmons needs the ball and Embiid needs the ball. You can't have a guy that's going to dominate the ball. That's going to make Simmons-who's going to be a stud, I think-he'd be useless. And same thing with Joel Embiid."

There are some legitimate questions about fit alongside Simmons. However, James has worked hard on his jump shot and was used more as a screener in pick and roll with Kyrie Irving. He and Simmons might be able to make some magic happen together, even if it's a little unconventional.
