(CBS) In a rare comment about his future, Heat star LeBron James said in an interview with NBA TV that he can’t envision himself leaving Miami at the conclusion of this season, when he has the right to opt out of his contract, according to the Sun-Sentinel.
“At this point,” James said when asked if he could see himself leaving, “I can’t. At this point, I can’t. We don’t know what can happen from now to July, you know, so what I’ve been able to do this whole season to this point is just worry about what’s at hand and that’s winning a championship.
“And hopefully at the end of this year I can put myself in a position where I can hold that Larry O’Brien Trophy up once again and then I will assess what I will have to do with my future after that.”
James has led the Heat to back-to-back titles, winning the league MVP both years. His contract runs through 2015-16.
