It's all happening?
Ben Simmons and LeBron James have the same agency. They work out together. And amid rumors James was unhappy with personnel decisions made in Cleveland and may not return to the Cavaliers when he becomes a free agent next offseason, Ben Simmons threw gasoline on the fire when he tweeted the eyes emoji to James' account.
Sixers fans went nuts.
On Simmons' birthday Thursday, James tweeted his friend a happy 21st, even joking about enjoying an alcoholic beverage with him.
Happy Bday to my lil bro @BenSimmons25!!! That boi 21 now. Uh-Oh!! Let's go have a Shirley temple with a twist. 😂😂🤦🏾♂️🤷🏾♂️— LeBron James (@KingJames) July 20, 2017
Naturally, Philadelphia's NBA fans lost their minds again, with many concluding it's an inevitability that James will be wearing a Sixers jersey next season.

If this doesn't scream out "LeBron to Philly in 2018", then I don't know what will. https://t.co/oO0i1vG23Z— Chris Jastrzembski (@CFJastrzembski) July 20, 2017
