INDEPENDENCE, Ohio - LeBron James was in no mood to justify using consecutive off days for the Cleveland Cavaliers this week to fly to Miami and spend part of that time working out with his former Heat teammate Dwyane Wade.
"I don't care," James said after Cavs practice Thursday when asked about the perception of him spending time with a potential playoff foe during the season. One of James' trainers, David Alexander, posted a video of the pair in his Florida gym Wednesday.
The Cavs are currently the No. 1 seed in the East, the Heat are No. 4, meaning the two teams could meet in the conference semifinals should the standings hold and both teams advance out of the first round.
Much how James was irked by being asked about flying to attend Ohio State's national championship win over Oregon the night before a Cavs game last season, he had little interest in explaining his two-day trip to Miami.
"What do I go there for? Go there 'cause I want to," James said. "I would love to go to L.A., but I'll take 2½ [hour flight] over 4½. I've got a house in L.A. but it makes more sense for me to go South than go West. But I go because I want to."
