Report: LeBron wouldn't commit to Cavs beyond this season when pressed by Gilbert

  Report: LeBron wouldn't commit to Cavs beyond this season when pressed by Gilbert LeBron James isn't making any promises about his future. The Cleveland Cavaliers icon, who can opt out of his contract following the season, declined to commit to his hometown squad beyond 2017-18 when asked by team owner Dan Gilbert this past summer, league sources told ESPN's Jackie MacMullan. At the time, the Cavs were exploring trades for Kyrie Irving after he requested to be moved so he could be a No. 1 option on another team rather than playing second fiddle to James. The point guard and his agent reportedly pressed Gilbert about James' future in Cleveland.

LeBron James was surprisingly light-hearted following his team's latest defeat.

The Cleveland Cavaliers relinquished a 22-point advantage to the Indiana Pacers on Friday, ultimately losing 97-95. The Cavs had an opportunity to take the lead late, but James stepped out of bounds, causing a turnover with two seconds remaining.

He owned up to the error after the loss - Cleveland's third straight and eighth in its last 11 contests - and even tossed in a joke.

James is referring to an incident two weeks ago when Milwaukee Bucks phenom Giannis Antetokounmpo got away with stepping out of bounds before converting on a game-winning dunk against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
