*Despite speculation that LeBron James intends to move to Los Angeles and reside in his comfy $20.9 million home that he purchased last November, James, who can opt out of the final year of his contract and become a free agent this summer, said Wednesday that he wants to stay with the Cavaliers.

“I love it here in Cleveland. I have no intentions of leaving,” James told ESPN’s Dave McMenamin during the Cavaliers’ championship parade. “There are some technicalities to take care of I’ll leave up to my agent. That’s right from the horse’s mouth.”

After winning 2 rings with the Miami Heat, James returned to Cleveland last year and made good on his promise to bring the city its first championship title in 52 years. But according to published reports, including gossip blogger SandraRose.com, James registered his sons, LeBron Jr., 11, and Bryce, 9, in the Brentwood school district in Los Angeles County.

James was voted unanimous MVP of the Finals after averaging 29.7 points, 11.3 rebounds and 8.9 assists with an effective field goal percentage of 53.3. He became the third player to record a triple-double in Game 7 of the Finals, joining Jerry West in 1969 and James Worthy in ’88, per ESPN.com.

LeBron’s move to South Beach and the Miami Heat for the 2009-10 season was called a “cowardly betrayal” by Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert. Some fans even burned his Jersey in the streets. But the Akron native returned last season and led the Cavaliers to the NBA Finals, losing to the Warriors. He returned this season to defeat the Warriors, bringing the city its first title since the Browns won the NFL Championship in 1964.
