LeBron James was asked if he would stay in his hometown of Miami if he won a title, and he didn’t mince words.
“If I get to do it, then I’m gonna be in my hometown, and I’m going to be in Miami,” James said.
He added that he would be the last to leave if the Heat win their first title since 2004.
In the last two seasons, the Heat have gone from one title to another and the team is in a very different place now than they were a few years ago.
James and the Heat will have a lot of money and resources, which could help them get back to the playoffs this year.
The Heat are set to spend a lot on a new arena, and the only real way to keep the franchise in Miami is by winning a championship.
If the Heat can win their second title in three years, that could be the biggest reason to stay.
