In the world of basketball, there is not much that LeBron James hasn't already accomplished.

He's been to the playoffs for 12 straight years, the NBA Finals for the past six in a row, he was four MVP awards and three Finals MVP awards from his three NBA titles.

However, outside of his own game, his love for sports stretches far and wide.

After watching the Cleveland Indians' 5-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs in game two of the World Series, King James revealed what other events he has in his sights.

"I've been in the playoffs for 12 straight years, so the Kentucky Derby doesn't allow me as far as that," James said before Cleveland Cavaliers shootaround Friday.

Given how successful and busy James is, he concedes his goals may have to wait until he graces the hardwood for the final time.

"After I retire," James said. "Those are some of my (goals): couple football stadiums, college football stadiums I'd like to go to ... It has nothing to do about money and accessibility, it's about my schedule."

James later rattled off a handful of college stadiums that he wants to hit first: Notre Dame Stadium, Michigan Stadium (University of Michigan), Kyle Field (Texas A&M University), Ben Hill Griffin Stadium (University of Florida), Beaver Stadium (Penn State University), Neyland Stadium (University of Tennessee) and Doak Campbell Stadium (Florida State University). His top NFL targets are Lambeau Field (Green Bay Packers) and Soldier Field (Chicago Bears).

When asked by reporters if he ever wanted to "run with the Bulls," James had a comical answer.

"You're talking about (Dwyane) Wade?" James shot back when asked if he wanted to run with the bulls, connecting the question to the Chicago Bulls. "I was about to say, don't start that, man. No, I'm not running with no damn bulls. I'm not."
