The day we’ve all been waiting for is nearly upon us. LeBron James and his decision will likely drop very soon. But just how close is The King’s choice?

According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, LeBron will likely announce his next destination before the 4th of July.

Specifically, Windhorst names July 3rd as the date of the decision, saying the superstar would want everyone to enjoy their holiday rather than being caught up thinking about where he could land.

Interestingly, however, the report goes against what most were saying prior to the last few hours. LeBron wasn’t expected to announce until mid-July, seeing as to how many moving pieces there is this offseason. This sudden change in the expected announcement could indicate that The King may have already decided where he wants to play next season or, at the very least, is closer than he’s ever been.

As LeBron watch 2018 continues to roll on, we’ll provide additional information as it becomes available.
