MIAMI -- LeBron James has this summer on his mind, and is already starting to plan for next season. Youth Ducks Jerseys . The summer of 2014, that can wait. James said Tuesday that he is not thinking about the possibility of becoming a free agent in 12 months, though he did acknowledge that the prospects of competing with Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Erik Spoelstra and Pat Riley for several more championships with the Miami Heat is more than a tiny bit intriguing. "Thats the goal," James said. "Thats the ultimate finish. And we all hope that can happen, obviously." James final interview session of this season revealed plenty in 17 minutes, including that hes already feeling an itch to get back on the basketball court after just a few days off, that hell stop at nothing to give longtime girlfriend Savannah Brinson anything she wants on their wedding day in a couple months, and that hes making no secret of his hope that the Heat bring back at least the majority of this years championship roster. The most interesting news, however, was when he spoke of his short- and long-term plans. First, hes vowing to come back better next season, which is no small promise from someone with four MVP awards, two Finals MVP awards and who carries the tag of "best player in the world." And then next summer, it certainly sounds as if hes going to give the prospects of staying in Miami a good, long look. "This is what we came here for, so that would be the ultimate," James said. "But you can never ... I dont know, life changes, things happen, and we have to be prepared for that. But this is what we all want to be here for, thats to be able to compete for a championship each and every year. And if we can do that, then itd be awesome." James scored 37 points in Game 7 of the NBA Finals against the San Antonio Spurs, carrying the Heat to their second straight championship in a season where he picked up his fourth MVP award. Hes gotten to the championship series in all three of his seasons with Miami, falling to Dallas in 2011, then beating Oklahoma City last season and the Spurs this year. The team gathered for physicals and a quick meeting on Tuesday, and now begins the process of scattering for vacation and other business. James will make his annual trip with Nike to China next month, not long after Wade does some business there. And already, James sounds like hes missing the group that he spent the past nine months with. "Its like, Damn, I wish we could come back in the locker room, have another practice, take another flight, have another bus ride with those 15 guys," James said. "Thats what its all about. You miss the guys throughout the summer. I know my family probably doesnt want to hear that, but its the truth." It was not a Finals without speed bumps for James, who failed to score 20 points in any of the first three games against the Spurs. And after Miami lost Game 5 in San Antonio, James had to prepare without one of his most faithful sounding boards. Maverick Carter, James longtime friend and perhaps his most trusted confidant, wouldnt talk with him for days after Game 5, other than challenging him by saying that great players have to be great in the biggest moments. James responded with 32 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists in Game 6, then the 37-point outburst in Game 7. "Thats why I like the guys around me, off the court," James said. "Its not just a bed of roses with us. Theyve been around me too long to allow me to be careless or not stepping up to the plate at the highest level, not in basketball but in everything." The Heat are expected to announce by Sunday that they will pick up an option on point guard Mario Chalmers, one of three potentially departing players -- Ray Allen and Chris Andersen being the others -- identified by James on Tuesday as being "huge parts of our team." James, who was completely exhausted after Game 7, said hes already feeling rejuvenated physically and is eager to get back to work, which may not be great news for opponents. "Im going to come back a better player," James said, "because I owe it to my teammates. ... Im obsessed with success." James said he hasnt taken much of a look at who might be available for Miami this summer in free agency yet, in part because the season just ended and in part because he thinks the current Heat roster, if brought back essentially intact, would be good enough to contend for the title in 2014. If Riley, Spoelstra, managing general partner Micky Arison and salary-cap guru Andy Elisburg find a way to improve the roster, then James -- who plays just about every position on offence and defends them all on defence -- certainly wouldnt complain. Still, it says something that hes not demanding upgrades, either. "My mindset is at a point where there is no relief," James said. "I love the burden. I love what I have to do for this team to win. If it happens and we get someone who relieves something from me as far as a big or a wing guy or something, then itd be good for our team. But Im not going up to those guys or approaching this summer saying I need help. Im coming back saying if we come back with this roster, were going to compete for a championship." The way he sees it, if he gets better and the Heat get healthier and other players find ways to improve, then he likes his chances next year. "This year coming, which will be here soon, thats our focus," James said. "Our focus is on how were going to get better this year coming up, and how were going to prepare to be better with all these other teams getting better, to be able to keep that trophy here." So he gets one ring when next season starts, and another a couple months beforehand, when he and Brinson finally tie the knot. Hes let his fiancee do most of the planning, though James has been involved in some decisions. His approach has been steadfast since proposing shortly after the clock struck midnight and the calendar flipped to Jan. 1, 2012 -- its her day. "Im involved enough to where everythings going to go right," James said. "The most important person is Savannah. Shes happy, then Im happy. Thats all that matters. I dont really care about nothing else. I dont really care about nobody else there on that day besides her." Then comes a new season -- and the same questions he heard going into his infamous Decision summer of 2010, when he left Cleveland for Miami. "Ive been in this position before," James said. "Ive heard it before. It cant get any worse than my season before I became a free agent in 2010." White Ducks Jerseys . Any real chance at payback wont come until the playoff. Still, Pittsburgh knows its taut 3-2 win over the Bruins on Wednesday night is a pretty good place to start laying the groundwork. "They are a very good defensive team," Penguins forward Brandon Sutter said. Adidas Ducks Jerseys .C. United of Major League Soccer.

After taking two big hits this week -- losing at home and dropping back-to-back games for the first time all season -- Indiana struck back by playing its most complete game of the year. SAO PAULO -- Lewis Hamilton won Sundays rain-delayed Brazil Grand Prix at Interlagos, and Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg again settled for second. Its the third straight race that Rosberg has been the runner-up behind Hamilton.Is Rosberg frustrated? Not likely.If he finishes second again to Hamilton in the season finale on Nov. 27 in Abu Dhabi -- or even third -it will be enough to bring him his first drivers title.I can live with second today, Rosberg said, ceding the stage again to the Englishman, whose victory was his first in Brazil after failing in nine other attempts. I was hoping for the win, but second is OK.The German, whose father Keke Rosberg won the title 34 years ago, still leads the overall season standings with 367 points to 355 for Hamilton.Drivers get 25 points for a victory, 18 for second, 15 for third, and 12 for fourth. The awards go all the way to 1 point for 10th place.Sundays race was stopped twice by crashes in driving rain during the first 28 of 71 laps. All but a half-dozen of the early laps were run behind a safety car with drivers struggling to see through tire spray and struggling to avoid hydroplaning in standing water.The second half was less eventful, but still was slowed by another crash and another spell under the safety car.Hamilton, the three-time series champion, said it looked tougher than it actually was.This was one of the easier ones, he said of his victory.Hamilton said he was in the zone for the entire race, despite the stops and starts.I was chilling up front, Hamilton said. When it rains, its usually a good day for me.Im hunting, he added. All I can do is what Im doing now. Abu Dhabi is usually a good track for me.The victory was the 52nd of Hamiltons career, pushing him to No. 2 ahead of Alain Prost with 51. Michael Schumacher leads with 91.The race was run behind a safety car for the first seven laps with raining pounding down and drivers trying to navigate through spray and puddles.It didnt take long for prooblems to arise as soon as the safety car pulled off. Ducks Jerseys For Sale. .On the 13th lap Marcus Ericsson of Sauber went into a spin and crashed, forcing the safety car to come out again.The safety car stayed on until the 20th lap. But just seconds after it pulled off and racing resumed, Kimi Raikkonen of Ferrari lost control in a spin. This time the race was stopped under a red flag.Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel, talking on his radio, said conditions were too dangerous. He suggested the crashes could have been worse under the treacherous conditions.We need to stop the race, he said. It doesnt work. How many people do you want to crash?Hamilton led through the first 20 laps, followed by Rosberg, Max Verstappen of Red Bull, which was the final finish.The race resumed after a 30-minute delay. But again it didnt last long. After eight laps, officials stopped the race under a red flag, seeming to anger Hamilton.Its not even that wet now, he said on the radio, adding these were normal wet conditions.Brazilian fans seemed to agree, with thousands in the stands giving the thumbs-down sign as the race was stopped again.The race resumed after another 20-minute stoppage, which Rosberg said he filled by eating some spaghetti.Compared to the first third, the second two-thirds was tense but smoother as the rain kept coming.The safety car appeared for the final time on the 48th lap in a crash by hometown hero Felipe Massa.Massa, who is leaving F1 at the end of the season, walked off the track with a Brazilian flag wrapped around his shoulders in his final race at home.Im leaving with my head up and my heart aching, Massa said afterward in the paddock, in tears and embraced by wife Anna Raffaela and young son Felipinho.---Stephen Wade on Twitter: http://twitter.com/StephenWadeAP .
