The Miami Heat are trying to get back to the NBA Finals and win their third consecutive championship, but despite all of that potential glory that lies ahead it seems fans are focused on something else — where LeBron James will play basketball in 2014. It’s a question that he’s managed to avoid answering directly, but he’s moved on to just avoiding the question now as was the case on Tuesday night against the Cavaliers.
One of the popular destinations for fans fantasizing about LeBron leaving Miami is back in Cleveland with his old team. The Cavs have some serious talent thanks to Kyrie Irving, Dion Waiters and Tristan Thompson, and many believe LeBron could bring a title to his hometown team.
Even if it’s under consideration un LeBron’s mind, he avoided questions about a return to Cleveland when they were brought up.
LeBron, on a possible Cav return, “For me to take my mind somewhere else when I know what’s on its way [postseason] is almost impossible.”

The man is trying to win a third straight NBA title, so you can’t blame him for getting sick of hearing the same question over and over. It’s as though people are asking just to remind him that Cleveland is an option, which if that’s the case shows how little LeBron is interested in returning.
