Ever since the start of free agency in the NBA, the rampant speculation has been about LeBron James and if he will return to the Miami Heat or return to play for his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers.

With the rumors circulating that LeBron could in fact return to the Cavaliers, everyone is asking where he will go, even Derek Jeter, as a local Cleveland TV cameraman asked the New York Yankees captain and shortstop if he thought LeBron would be coming back to Cleveland, in which Jeter, like many others, was unsure.

Jeter and the Yankees are in town playing the Cleveland Indians for a three game series and thus, why the unknown cameraman asked Jeter about LeBron's free agent plans. The conversation between the Cleveland cameraman and Jeter was picked up on Sound Cloud and can be listened to here. James, who was the former number one overall pick of the Cavaliers in 2003 and lead them to the NBA Finals in 2007, left the Cavaliers to sign with the Miami Heat in 2010 and has won two NBA Championships with them in 2012 and 2013.

This past season, LeBron and the Heat lost the NBA Finals to the San Antonio Spurs in five games and opted out of his contract and thus, is a free agent again for the second time in his career.

Aside from being considered the best player in the NBA, LeBron James is also a well-known Yankees fan as well.
