CLEVELAND -- LeBron James is back in Cleveland, which means the question had to be asked. Actually, the idea of James returning the Cavaliers someday probably didnt need to be brought up at all, but you knew someone would do it, anyway. Unlike two seasons ago -- when James hinted playing for the team that drafted him was a possibility -- he gave the politically correct response Wednesday. Right now, Im focused on right now, said James, in his third season with Miami and 10th overall. I dont really get involved in the road ahead of me. I kind of live in the moment. James was speaking prior to the Heats game against the Cavs. Miami entered the night winners of 23 straight. The Cavs, on the other hand, had lost three straight and would be without their injured starting backcourt of Kyrie Irving (shoulder) and Dion Waiters (knee). Outside of some strong praise of Irving, James didnt really address the Cavs much, either. I havent really paid much attention, he said. Ive kind of got my own thing going. James was gracious-but-direct with reporters, chatting with some Cleveland media members following the official interview session. He spoke of the Heats winning streak and whether hes having his best season, and even admitted he still has memories from his first seven years in Cleveland. Were not really talking about (the winning streak), James said. Were going about every game as if its its own. If we catch (the 1971-72 Lakers 33-game streak), itd be a remarkable accomplishment. But were not trying to catch it or saying its our goal. James, who won two of his three NBA MVPs with the Cavs, is averaging 26.7 points and shooting a career-high 56 percent from the field. He said hes moved on from his time in Cleveland (2003-10), and thinks perhaps Cleveland has done the same. I havent spent much time in Cleveland, other than the summer time back home, he said. Even being back home is kind of different. But I dont really know. Ive moved on, and theyve got some really good pieces here but I have no idea. Twitter: @SamAmicoFSO
