LeBron James can opt-out of his Heat deal in 2014, and for about a month now, people have been talking about the NBA’s best player going back to Cleveland – he’ll only be 29 – next summer. LeBron has dodged the questions about “going home” to play with budding superstar Kyrie Irving. We wrote about this in February, and the story will come up every time the Heat play the Cavaliers (like tonight!).
The media asked LeBron about Cleveland and 2014 again today, and …
LeBron getting questions about whether he wants to come back: “Right now I’m focusing on right now.”

So he’s focusing on the 23-game winning streak? LeBron, come on, man, the Heat are double-digit favorites on the road tonight. Nobody cares about the streak. Where are you playing in 2014?
A lot of you are misreading LeBron’s answer. Really, he was just trying to get through the questions. No news today. — Ethan J. Skolnick (@EthanJSkolnick) March 20, 2013
Ah. Got it. So, how long will LeBron just try to “get through the questions?” The clock is ticking, June 2014 is only 14 months and a few days away!
Whatever you do, two pieces of advice: Don’t do anything Dwight Howard did don’t repeat the Decision.
