LeBron has something to say

... which is, "I have nothing to say."

He put out the word the other night that he's not answering any more questions this season about his impending free agency. Then he immediately went to Miami and had to answer some more questions about his impending free agency.

OK, so he didn't exactly answer the questions. Not even when someone asked him if (hint, hint) warm weather mattered to him.

"Nah, nah," James said.

I'm surprised, the way this is going, that there wasn't a story in the Miami papers the next day that went something like this ...

MIAMI -- LeBron James issued a lukewarm denial last night when asked if warm weather will matter to him when the impending free agent begins looking for a new home next year.

"Y'know, he said 'Nah, nah', but who knows what that means," said Heat guard and LeBron pal Dwyane Wade. "I know I've said 'Nah, nah,' at the dinner table when someone asked if I wanted seconds on pie, but later on I changed my mind and had some more pie.

"So, yeah, LeBron's saying 'Nah, nah,' now, but maybe in February when there's six feet of snow in his driveway and his car won't start because it's 10 frickin' degrees below zero, he'll change his mind, too. Maybe he'll say to heck with Cleveland and to heck with New York, even though the Yankees are there, and decide he wouldn't mind living in a nice warm place, like Miami, for instance, where he doesn't have to scrape ice off his (bleepin') windshield until the middle of May."
