In an interview with CNN, LeBron James said that if the Miami Heat had won a third consecutive title, there would have been a better chance he stayed in Miami instead of signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers as a free agent.

The Sun Sentinel provided an excerpt from the interview.

"It's a greater chance, for sure," James told CNN's Rachel Nichols. "I mean, it would be hard to leave back-to-back-to-back championships and try to go for four. But, obviously, you really can't live and think of what may have happened. For me, I've always been a person kind of live in the moment."

James and the Heat lost in the NBA Finals, 4-1, to the San Antonio Spurs.

James also said he understands how hard it is to win a championship, calling it the hardest thing he's ever done in his life.
