INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- LeBron James called the entirety of an ESPN report that he would meet with the Golden State Warriors as a free agent this summer "nonsense," adding that any quote about his future that doesn't come from him is "not true."

"It's nonsense, and it's a non story," James said Friday after the Cavaliers' practice. "I think it's a discredit to what I'm trying to do here. It's a discredit to my teammates and the coaching staff here.

"My only focus right now is trying to figure out how we can become a championship-caliber team in these next few months." - CLICK HERE to read full story.
