For anyone looking at LeBron James through the Sixers' lense, the wind during All-Star Weekend sure seemed to blow in the direction of Philadelphia being a true candidate as James' next destination. First, James raved about Sixers' Joel Embiid at Saturday's Media Day in the Los Angeles Convention Center. James' quotes mostly raved about Embiid's skills at a player, but his feelings on Embiid's off-court persona were particularly interesting. "Off the court he's just being himself," James said. "He is who he is. That's special. When you're authentic, I think people gravitate toward that." That night, Sixers rookie Ben Simmons posted a picture on Instagram with James -- as well as Wizards' John Wall and Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson -- from one of the many All-Star Weekend nighttime parties. All four are clients of Klutch Sports, which is owned by James' childhood friend Rich Paul.
LeBron to Sixers? Other players don't want that, apparently
