He broke the heart of Ohio and then bounced down to Miami. LeBron gave an exclusive interview to GQ where he talks about his decision to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers and the backlash. In the magazine he says he can imagine playing for Cleveland again and that the fans who burned his jerseys were probably “never LeBron fans anyway.” It’s kind of annoying how he refers to himself in the third person, but I’ll let that slide. Check out his pecs…err..pics!
Some other highlights are his thoughts on Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, who you remember wrote that nasty little break up letter about him. “I don’t think he ever cared about LeBron. My mother always told me: ‘You will see the light of people when they hit adversity. You’ll get a good sense of their character.’ Me and my family have seen the character of that man.” They both sound like butthurt teenagers. James also explains how as a native of Ohio, he was able to cheer for the Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan, “It’s not far, but it is far. And Clevelanders, because they were the bigger-city kids when we were growing up, looked down on us.… So we didn’t actually like Cleveland. We hated Cleveland growing up. There’s a lot of people in Cleveland we still hate to this day.” (Hey, LeBron? You’re NOT HELPING the situation with comments like that, FYI.)
Yeah, he’s never going to be allowed back into Cleveland. Cavs fans weren’t the only ones unhappy with his move to Miami. His longtime girlfriend, and mother to his two adorable sons, Savannah Brinson told Harper’s Bazaar that she’s not a fan of the city. “Personally, Miami was not my favorite place. Vacationing there is great: You go for three days and get some sun, and it’s time to go home. It will definitely be an adjustment, but we’ll make it. We’re not complaining. Whatever LeBron felt was comfortable, I’m with him. I just love him so much. We’re soul mates.”
I hope it does work out for Bron Bron and his family in Miami. If not, there’s always the Knicks!
