LeBron James Comments On Warriors Rumors

But if he believes passive-aggressive leaks would also help him achieve that goal, I wouldn't put it past him.

It all started with a report by ESPN's Chris Haynes that said the Cleveland Cavaliers' star could meet with the defending champs if they can create a max salary slot this offseason.

The Cavs, perennial contenders for the National Basketball Association title, have struggled at times this season, with new acquisitions and injuries hurting the team's cause. James told reporters (via USA Today) of when he heard ESPN's report Friday (AEDT) that topped virtually every US sports website.

LeBron James called a report that he would consider meeting with the Golden State Warriors in free agency "nonsense" and a "non-story".

"I think it's a discredit to what I'm trying to do here", James said.

LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers yells at Draymond Green #23 of the Golden State Warriors in Game 5 of the 2017 NBA Finals at ORACLE Arena on June 12, 2017 in Oakland, California. "If it's not from me, it's not true".

He continued, "I don't give a damn how close they are [as a source], I don't care if it's my kids, or my wife or whatever".

If he were, say, the general manager of the Warriors, though, he could get into a lot more trouble for saying anything about the possibilities of James joining the team.

James said his only focus is on the Cleveland Cavaliers. "And I will not handle it right now". And especially when the Warriors would then become the favorites to add literally every single veteran free agent willing to take league minimum just for a chance to win. "I never said I would sit down with Golden State or sit down with anybody". With Golden State, an ultra-aggressive general manager in Bob Myers, the ownership group as a whole and coach Steve Kerr are the epitome of that. The current iteration of the Warriors already has the highest payroll in the league, and would need to make some changes to fit James and his maximum salary. Everything else. if it's not about this team, if you want to ask me about this team, I can answer it good, bad or ugly.

That's months away and James is certain there will be other stories linking him to other teams.
