MIAMI, FL (TS) - Last month LeBron James made a decision that sent ramifications throughout the NBA; sending free agent players to different cities around the league, leaving fans jaded, an owner calling for James' head, and his home city destroyed.

It turns out, LeBron just wants to have "some fun."

"The thing people don't get about this thing with (Dwayne Wade), (Chris) Bosh, and me, is that we just want to have fun," said James at a charity function in Coral Gables, Florida. James continued, "I mean, winning would be great, but is that what it's really about? It isn't everything to me or the guys."

Cleveland fans went to the streets after James' decision to leave the Cavaliers, a mere 30 miles from his hometown of Akron, Ohio, for the bright lights of Miami. Basketball insiders believed his decision was rooted solely in his quest for a ring, something he was unable to do in his previous 7 NBA seasons with Cleveland.

"He's got to be joking. I mean, this is a business," said one league executive speaking on condition of anonimity. "Nothing came up about 'just having fun' when he paraded us through the offices of his joke or a marketing company," said a team personnel executive.

"How am I supposed to go along with the hype and create goals that are probably set a bit high and ridiculous anyways?," said James. Pressed further he had this to offer, "My mother always taught me that it isn't about winning, but how you play the game. If we win, then great, if we lose, we'll get (them) next time." "Do you think LeBron James cares about 73 wins (in a season)? There's more to life than that," contemplated James. 72 wins is the record set by the Michael Jordan led Chicago Bulls in the 1995-1996 NBA season.
