The likelihood of LeBron James leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers shrunk once he won Game 7. Now, for the record, he says he doesn’t want to go anywhere else.

James has a player option for next season. Even if he declines that to prompt a new deal—he most likely will—he sounds like he’s not leaving Cleveland. Here’s what he told Cleveland.com:

“I love it here. I love being here. I love my teammates,” James told cleveland.com, moments before he boarded a float at The Q for the Cavs’ championship parade through downtown Cleveland. “Obviously my agent will take care of all the logistical things but, I’m happy. I’ve got no plans to go nowhere at this point.”

It was fun to imagine LeBron on the Clippers for a couple of days.
