08:08 AM ET 10.19 | LeBron in Los Angeles? [James] understands why there's already speculation that he could opt out of his contract with the Miami Heat after two more seasons, but the NBA's reigning MVP doesn't want any part of the discussion. Responding to an ESPN.com report on Thursday that teams such as the Los Angeles Lakers already are plotting for the next time he potentially can become a free agent, James said his only focus is on helping the Heat defend their title. "I'm here, and this is what it's all about," James said after the Heat's 105-78 preseason win over the Detroit Pistons on Thursday. "I'm preparing for this season, preparing to defend our title and that's it. This is where ... I'm here now."

The place to start is to sign Delonte. When Gloria comes Lebron follows. It's that simple!

On the other hand maybe Dwight will want to go back to Florida. Makes as much sense.
