I’m sure ESPN will run this quote just as often as they ran the ‘favorite borough is Brooklyn’ quote:
“I never gave an indication I was leaving Cleveland,” he said. “I never gave any indication I didn’t like being here. Every time I’m asked that question, [I answer] I love being here, I love playing in front of these fans. My family’s here. I grew up 30 miles away from here. I never gave any indication I did not like playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers. I like the Yankees and Cowboys, but it has nothing to do with the Cavaliers.”
In other Cavalier news, James said he’s “five times better than I was in Game 7 of the Boston series.” Now, I don’t believe his math (though I’d love to be wrong), but the Cavs are in a really good spot this year. They’re talking championship– and they should be.
