No doubt feeling magnanimous following his team’s victory over the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference semifinals, LeBron James of the Heat last night offered an apology of sorts to the city of Cleveland, its fans and his ex-teammates for “The Decision” to take his talents to South Beach in that self-aggrandizing spectacle on ESPN last July.
“I knew I had to go through Boston at some point. I went through a lot signing to be here and the way it panned out. I apologize for the way it happened, but I knew that this opportunity was once in a lifetime.”
I, I, I, I…
LeBron also commented to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, “As much as I loved my teammates back in Cleveland, as much as I loved home, I knew I couldn’t do it by myself against (the Celtics).”
Well, at least he admits he needs help.
