MANHATTAN — Maybe he’s just not that into us.

LeBron James said the Cleveland Cavaliers have the edge in signing him during an interview with Larry King, CNN reported Tuesday.

When King asked LeBron if he was leaning toward “the place you know best,” Lebron replied, “Absolutely."

"Because, you know, this city, these fans, I mean, have given me a lot in these seven years,” LeBron continued. “And, you know, for me, it's comfortable. So I've got a lot of memories here. And — and so it does have an edge.”

Speculation about where LeBron will end up has been rampant as he gets closer and closer to becoming a free agent, with President Obama suggesting he'd fit in well with the Chicago Bulls and Mayor Michael Bloomberg joining the chorus of New York City residents urging LeBron to join the Knicks.
