No one enjoys discussing the summer of 2010 more than its biggest fish: LeBron James. He revels in the added attention it brings him, and loves messing with the press about it.

In town to play against the Nets, James was at it again. The AP reports:

James raised the possibility Sunday of the MVP candidates playing together somewhere after he was asked a question about the friendly rivalry between the U.S. Olympic teammates.

James was asked if he’d prefer they both stay in the same conference, so they could play against each other more often, or end up in different conferences, so they could compete against each other for championships.

“I don’t know, it doesn’t matter,” James said before the Cavaliers’ game against the Nets. “Whatever happens, we’ll go against each other, and maybe we’ll go against each other in practice. I don’t know, that’d be fun, wouldn’t it?”

James, of course, was just kidding around and proving yet again just how pointless this type of speculation is. Which, naturally, will only make things worse going forward. Nice.
