NBA News: LeBron James Dismisses Lakers Rumors

The story that broke yesterday stating that the Los Angeles Lakers may make a run for LeBron James if he becomes a free-agent in 2014 caused a split reaction from most Lakers fans, but James himself if not ready to comment on the issue.

The Lakers and Miami Heat will both be battling for the 2013 title this upcoming season, and there is a chance those two meet in the Finals. It would not be smart for James to discuss the possibility of him leaving the Heat to join a rival, so he took the right path out of the mess. James spoke to the media after the Heat’s preseason win over the Detroit Pistons and he dismissed the rumors before they heated up even more.

“That story, I don’t know where it came from, but I understand why it came up because of who I am — it’s going to happen,” James told reporters after Miami’s first preseason home game. “But I’m not going to worry about it. I’ve got to continue to stay focused with these guys and make sure we’re ready for any challenges that come.”

The Heat will be title contenders until the summer of 2014, and if James decides to stay in South Beach, Miami will still have a chance to win more championships. At this point, there is no way of telling whether or not the reigning NBA Finals MVP would want to change teams again for a chance to add to his title count.

As of right now, both sides will likely back off discussing the possibility. Both the Lakers and Heat have title aspirations and something like this can be a major distraction.
