Jones has openly pondered retirement in the past. Most of the talk was previously due to his recurring foot issues, but with those problems in the rear-view mirror, he is now focused on a goal of playing 15 seasons and then walking away from the game for good. “I feel great right now,” James told Basketball Insiders. “This is [year] 14 for me. I’ve always said if I get to 15, that’ll be the point where [I retire]. For me, as a kid who just dreamed of making it to the NBA and hoping to play for a couple years, to be able to say I played 15 seasons in the NBA, that’s a personal milestone. That would give me great personal satisfaction. “I’ve always said that when I feel my teammates aren’t challenged by my presence, then that would be an external sign to leave. The way I’m rolling and feeling now, I don’t think that will be an issue. I won’t have to walk away from the game. I think 15 years will be plenty for me.”
But now, the Cavs are the NBA champions, and the Indians are two wins away from the World Series — they haven’t won it since 1948. There is a new tale to be told. (Though it still excludes the Browns, at least for a while.) “I think for a long time, people just felt that Cleveland players really didn’t care about the legacy, and that the players never really embodied or embraced that burden. And we did,” forward James Jones said. “This team, that’s all we talked about. That’s all we talk about, being the group to change that narrative, being the group that redefines Cleveland professional sports history.”

James Jones: Chris Bosh will play again

Jones says he has talked with Bosh since the failed physical and is totally confident the 11-time All-Star will eventually be cleared to play the game he loves at a high level. “Chris will play again,” Jones confidently told Basketball Insiders. “I’ve always said there’s something about that group in Miami. Every single guy down there, in a unique fashion, had overbearing, overwhelming desire to succeed. We did some special things down there namely because those guys (Wade and Bosh) willed their way to it.

“From a health perspective, I know [Chris] will do everything in his power and medicine these days is amazing. He’ll find a way to get back. No way will he allow the game to be taken away from him for a medical reason. But like always, he’s methodical, he’s very very patient and he’ll figure it out. We’re all pulling for him because this is a brotherhood. Not only because this is the NBA but by playing on a team like that, it’s a brotherhood, and you always want to see your brother’s dreams and legacies fulfilled.”
LeBron James, Cleveland Cavaliers teammate James Jones and Los Angeles Clippers star Chris Paul have been served with notices of deposition in former NBA Player’s Union executive director Billy Hunter’s wrongful termination lawsuit against the NBPA, sources said Thursday. Paul operates as union president, James as vice president and Jones as secretary treasurer. Hunter is suing the NBPA for $10.5 million in addition to attorney’s fees, for compensation he did not receive after his ouster in February 2013.

In addition to the deposition notices served by Hunter’s legal team, California Superior Court judge Judge Huey Cotton has ordered the NBPA to turn over the documents regarding an investigation conducted by law firm Paul Weiss into Hunter’s reign as executive director, a review that preceded Hunter’s ouster. According to a Sports Business Daily report, Cotton has also ordered the union to pay $30,550 in sanctions for failing to comply with a previous order to turn over documents.

The 2016 NBA Champion Cleveland Cavaliers have re-signed guard/forward James Jones, Cavaliers General Manager David Griffin announced on Wednesday, August 3rd from Cleveland Clinic Courts. “We’re very happy to have James back with the Cavaliers,” said Griffin. “He is a Champion in every sense of the word and his leadership and professionalism over the last two years have translated with our team in many different ways that have helped us reach our goals. ‘Champ’ delivers a clear reflection of what success at the highest level should embody and his contributions and commitment to our team are something we need and appreciate greatly.”
