When asked where he might play following next season, LeBron James gave an understandable answer. Im a winner; I want to win, James said in an exclusive interview with FOX Sports Lives Bill Reiter on Tuesday night. Im in a position right now where thats all I think about. Im very comfortable in my surroundings. I love my teammates, I love the organization in Miami. So I like where I am right now. James is coming off his second title with the Heat and fourth overall NBA MVP award. He can opt of his contract with following the season. He gave no clues about his plans -- or if he even has any. I have no idea, he said, when asked where he might sign next. I havent even begun to think about that. My focus right now is trying to win three championships. James, who wore a hat that read "Akron" for his interview, joined Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and the Heat following a much-publicized departure with the Cleveland Cavaliers in the summer of 2010 -- in which he announced his decision on a nationally televised show. It drew the ire of Cavs fans and critics, and James has said he learned from the decision. Ive changed, he said. Ive grown as a basketball player and as a man. When youve made mistakes, or done something that wasnt the best choice to make its how you come back from adversity, those pitfalls, that define who you are as a man. He added that hes not sure if Cavs fans have forgiven him. I know last time I played in Cleveland , a kid ran out on the floor who wanted to hug before arena security got there, James, smiling, told Reiter. But we cant sit here and ask everyone in Cleveland how they feel about LeBron James. But right now, who I am today, Im in a good place. As for personal goals, James said he hopes to be remembered as the greatest player ever when he retires. He listed his current top three as Michael Jordan, Julius Dr. J Erving and Larry Bird, before pausing to ask, Can I add a fourth? He did: Magic Johnson. I want to be the greatest of all time, he said. Thats my goal. When I hang up my jersey, whatever arena its in, you guys can say, Hes made a mark on this game. Twitter: @SamAmicoFSO
