In that case go Cavs!
Hmmmmmmmmm...In an interview on NBA TV, LeBron James indicated that he "won't stop" until he reaches his goal of winning a title in Cleveland.
"I got a goal, and it's a huge goal, and that's to bring an NBA championship here to Cleveland," James said. "And I won't stop until I get it."
Taken literally, James' statement is newsworthy because it would mean that the Cavs' superstar, who can become a free-agent this summer, would stay in Cleveland at least as long as it takes to bring the city an NBA championship.
James also spoke glowingly about the professionalism and depth of the Cavs' roster.
The Cavs have the best record in the league, five games ahead of the Lakers.

I have a feeling he stays too...Kinda stupid of him if he does IMO. He could had teamed up with DWade and won 3
This is a great comment from a Knicks fans perspective.
He is already paving the way for him to leave AFTER the Cavs win the title this year. He can say it was his ultimate goal to bring a title to Cleveland and he can leave on top.
hahhhahahahahah who believes in NBA conspiracies?
What kinda calls are we gonna see in the playoffs
Fine with me. Let's build a better TEAM without him and beat the Cavs in the Conference Finals every year. In fact, that would give me more satisfaction than winning a championship with Lebron.
Just like he was going to compete in the dunk contest...
Step 1: Retain Lee's Bird Rights
Step 2: Retain MLE
Step 3: Sign Chris Bosh
Step 4: Sign and trade Lee + Chandler + Curry's + expiring contract + picks (if necessary) to Atlanta for Joe Johnson + Josh Smith
Step 5: Sign McGrady to vet minimum
Step 6: Use MLE to sign Steve Blake and Tyrus Thomas
w/ Douglas, TMac, Thomas off the bench
Then beat Lebron and the Cavs in the Conference Finals and say "too bad, you should've signed with us and won a championship in New York instead of staying in sorry-ass Cleveland".
Maybe this is LeBron's way of saying he's leaving Cleveland.
He "won't stop" until he brings a championship to Cleveland, he says.
But what if they win one this year?
not sure what to make of this... should we Knicks fans be rooting for 'everyone but the Cavs' this playoff or the cavs? .. I was thinking, and still sort of am, that if the Cavs were to get knocked off somewhat early, second round or something, he'd be pretty pissed... though I suppose if he wins, having brought a championship, he'd feel better leaving...but something tells me if he wins a championship, he isn't just going to say bye... he'll want more... which is leaving me thinking it'd prob be in our interest to hope they lose... also, i don't think an opportunity like this will come Lebrons way for a long long time if he passes... this free agency, and the position the knicks (among others) are in to sign some of them, these circumstances just wont happen for a while... and i think if that time does ever come again, things will have changed a great deal.....if he's going to make a big move, this is the summer to do it... i'd love for him to win and feel free to leave, but i'm just not sure i see him packin as a nba champion...seems more likely as the champagne's poppin that he'd yell out 'i'm nevvverr leavvving cleavvvlanddd'
And as for that line-up above...Bosh and Johnson?.. idk i feel like this wait has been a little too long for it to end w the knicks signing chris bosh and joe johnson...i'm not even sure who i'd chose, but for all the hype and yrs we've waited for this, i'm not sure how i'd feel w those two being the final pieces... i have gained a false sense of deserving being knicks fan and putting up w what we've had to go through the last few seasons...i'm just not sure i imagined Bosh/Johnson as the final product a few seasons ago when the only thing keepin me interested was 'summer '10
Bosh is far far far from being a C
You honestly believe LeBron will leave CLE AFTER winning a title? No way.
Look at the scheduling, if the NBA Finals were to end in 5 or 6 games that means the date would be somewhere in mid-June 16.
Then you'd have the Canyon of ZEROS parade.
Then the NBA Draft a few days later, and then bam! July 1st, is right there.
LeBron is still gonna be soaking up the joy of a title. He's not gonna have the heart or REASON to leave CLE.
I'm still rooting for a 1st Round elimination and LeBron to storm off the court on a charter flight straight to the Big Apple.
Though all indications are he's gonna stay in that bum ass town.
The # change form filed, the Nike No Clause Deal, and now this statement...
Doesnt sound like he's sold on coming here more than once a year.
I also believe him when he says he's not gonna stop until he gets Cleveland a title.. even if it takes him his entire career. I think if they lose, he'll resign for sure and keep trying until he does.Root for the cavs during the playoffs.
