INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) -Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert says the speculation that LeBron James will leave Cleveland in two years is out of line and ``an insult to the city.''
Gilbert says it's nothing more than conjecture from bored sports reporters.
He says James has given no indication that he plans to leave for New York after his contract expires in 2010.
Gilbert spoke to the media Thursday at the Cavaliers' practice facility. He says the Cavs can compete for a championship the next two seasons and that worrying about a contract extension for James is two summers away.
