LeBron James' return to the Cleveland Cavaliers took the sports world by storm, but the three-time National Basketball Association champion initially was hesitant about the move. He wrote things like, "You simply don't deserve this kind of cowardly betrayal", and called James' decision to play for the Heat a "heartless and callous action".
"[Gilbert] completely bashed me and disrespected not only me as an individual but disrespected my name", James said. "And my name is not just myself". In an informal discussion in a barber shop that took place in February with Draymond Green on hand that aired on YouTube on Friday, James said his closest confidants - his mother and wife - were not supportive of returning to Cleveland. He had to then explain that his return would mean so much more than just playing for the Cavs again, and why the letter is small potatoes. "We ain't going back'". In the letter, Gilbert describes James' decision as cowardly and promises a championship in Cleveland before James gets one. It's all these kids, all these people that need inspiration and a way to get out.
James has addressed the letter in the past when he said he "met with Dan, face-to-face, man-to-man" and added that "we've talked it out".
