LeBron James said he believes he’s the best player in the NBA.
He said he’s ready to take over the Cavaliers, and he says he wants to win.
James is a free agent after this season and he spoke to ESPN’s Adam Schefter about what’s next for him.
He’s coming off of a year that was so successful for him and the Cavaliers.
James told Schefter he is ready to put his “fear of losing” aside and be the greatest player in basketball.
“The fear of losing is a thing that I’m very aware of, because I’m not a big fan of losing, so it’s going to be hard for me to not be a part of a team that’s going nowhere, because it’s a big team,” he said.
James was asked about his future after this year, which saw him win three championships.
He also mentioned that he’s going through the offseason and looking at a few different options.
James said the Cavs are the team he would have wanted to win the title with, but the team that is currently in the mix is the New York Knicks.
“We’ve got some good players and a lot of pieces that we need to be in the right position to win,” he added.
“I think we’re a team with a lot to offer.
We’ve got a lot on the line, and it’s not about who’s better or who’s not, it’s about what we have and what we need.”
James said he wants the Cavs to be successful this year and he has no hesitation saying he wants a championship.
