LeBron James finally spoke out to the press in regards to his upcoming free agency this summer. Despite avoiding all major details, he at least gave somewhat of an indication to how he’s approaching the matter. “At the end of the day, it is still a business,” said James. “This isn’t high school basketball anymore. You have to do what is best for your family and what is best for yourself. I’ve always said I love being in Cleveland. But for me as a basketball player, no matter what happens, I love to play the game. I play it with a joy and I love my teammates.”
The 25-year old phenom just recently became the youngest player to reach 15,000 points. Teams in the discussion to make offers during the off-season include Cleveland, New York, New Jersey and Chicago. The Knicks just reached a milestone in light of anticipation, already reaching 1,800 new season ticket orders for next year.
The 56-15 Cavaliers have now won eight straight heading into Wednesday’s contest against the New Orleans Hornets. Monday marks the first day the organization can speak to Zyrunas Ilgauskas about re-signing with the team. James was happy to address Big Z’s return, saying “He’s a good friend of mine and he’s a great teammate. Z’s a veteran his play will automatically guarantee him minutes because of how good he is, how tall he is and his shooting ability.”
