Any thoughts of LeBron James following in the footsteps of Dwyane Wade and voicing his desire to stay in South Beach can be thrown out the window, but that doesn’t mean that he won’t be shutting down distractions in his own way.
“I have no idea,” James told Fox Sports 1 when asked about his Miami Heat future. “I think right now, my focus is on trying to win three championships in a row.”
You can’t be mad though. He’s earned the right to take his time and decide what is best for him and his family in the long run. Which likely means: stay in Miami or play for the Cleveland Cavaliers. And yes, I cut the Los Angeles Lakers out early because of Kobe Bryant‘s issues and the fact that it’s hard to picture James willingly, adding a third team to his resume. Team-hopping just doesn’t feel like an option for him.
“I’m a winner, that’s all that matters. I want to win. I’m in a position right now where that’s all I think about. I’m very comfortable in my surroundings.”
However, we all know that his love and heart will always be in Akron. We’ve all seen him donate bikes, books, tablets and uniforms to the town, and voice that he will “always be at one with the city.”
But will that be enough to pull him back to Ohio?
Critics say that there is no way that he would leave Miami if the team won three in a row. They also said that no man would’ve left a team (Cleveland) where he just won two MVPs. Regardless, the option will be his as we read a little bit of everything into his simplest comments.
“I love my teammates. I love the organization in Miami. So that’s where I am right now.” Sounds like he’s coming back.
“But as far as next summer, when that path comes, we’ll cross it.”
Oh no, it’s the Decision Part Two.
