The offseason has officially ended as training camps are about to begin. Teams are now finalizing their roster for training camps. LeBron James looks to continue his consecutive finals appearance while ignoring rumors about him heading to the Lakers next season. Dirk Nowitzki will also continue to start for the Dallas Mavericks next season despite his age. Here are a few more updates on LeBron and Dirk:

LeBron still mum on future after this season

Brian Windhorst of NBA ESPN has reported that LeBron still loves playing in Cleveland despite the departure of Kyrie Irving. He added that it would be unfair to the organization for him to be thinking of the offseason as early as now.

LeBron added that he would rather take care of those things once the offseason begins again. Coming into this season, LeBron is probably still going to be part of the MVP discussion as he has been nothing short of amazing the past few seasons.

LeBron James is still dubbed as the best NBA player in the world today and he still continues his excellent work ethic despite his aging body. Last season, The King still had a great season and was still in the conversation for league's Most Valuable Player [VIDEO]. He averaged 26.4 points, 0.6 blocks, 1.2 steals, 8.7 assists (career high), and 8.6 rebounds (career high) while shooting 54.8 percent from the field, 36.3 percent from the three-point line, and 67.4 percent from the field. Now that all the offseason drama has ended LeBron and his squad can now focus on once again making the NBA finals.
