LeBron James looking forward to Cavs-Heat matchup

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - While in the midst of the second round LeBron James has his mind set on who he wants to play in the Eastern Conference Finals.

During Wednesday's shootaround a reporter asked the All-Star Forward if he's ever thought about the possibility of playing the Miami Heat.

The Cleveland Cavalier responded with an 'of course he has'.

""I think naturally of course. That's been since I've came back. It would be great to play against those guys in the postseason. Throughout my whole career, I've always wanted to go against [Dwyane] Wade in a playoff series," said James. "We've always talked about it even before we became teammates in '10. It's not been heavy on my mind but it's crossed my mind throughout my whole career."

But first the Cleveland Cavaliers have to get past the Atlanta Hawks. They play Wednesday night at 8 p.m. at the 'Q'.

It's Game 2 in a best-of-seven series. The Cavs, who have home court advantage, lead 1-0.
