LeBron James is just one month away from free agency, and speculation about his destination is running rampant. One rumor placed him in a package deal with Kentucky coach John Calipari, while President Obama and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg have both lobbied for King James' services. But it turns out his current team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, may have the best shot at holding on to him.
In an interview with Larry King, the CNN host asked James if the Cavs have an advantage at keeping him. The reining NBA MVP replied, "Oh, absolutely."
James later added that "this city, these fans, I mean, have given me a lot in these seven years."
Talk of LeBron's looming free agency has led to multiple fines in the past two weeks, with Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban ponying up $100,000 for violating the NBA's anti-tampering policies.
The full interview airs Friday at 9:00 PM ET on CNN.
