This time last year, LeBron James made headlines by saying he only had “three very good friends” in the NBA – none of whom were Cleveland Cavaliers. If his long-shot dream eventually comes true, though, it’s fair to say that might no longer prove the case.
“I really hope that, before our career is over, we can all play together,” James said. “At least one, maybe one or two seasons—me, Melo, D-Wade, CP—we can get a year in. I would actually take a pay cut to do that.”
Maybe at the end of their careers, James said. Maybe sooner. One more ring chase, this time with everyone on board.
“It would be pretty cool,” James said. “I’ve definitely had thoughts about it.”
Before bounding away, he smiles and closes with a coy chirp: “We’ll see.”
