LeBron Covers GQ & Would Like To Play In Cleveland Again?!

 

LeBron is on the cover of the September issue of GQ Magazine. In the issue, he talks about Cavs owner Dan Gilbert's comments and letter, the possibility of playing in Cleveland again, and growing up hating Cleveland. Read on to find out what he said...

 

 

 

Here's some quotes from his cover story:

On Cavs Owner Dan Gilbert

LeBron: "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."

 

On growing up rooting for Chicago and Jordan

LeBron: "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."

 

On Charles Barkley's comments

LeBron: "Charles was probably trying to be funny. It wasn't funny to me."

 

On the possibility of playing again in Cleveland

LeBron: "If there was an opportunity for me to return and those fans welcome me back, that'd be a great story.  Maybe the ones burning my jersey were never LeBron fans anyway."

 

 I doubt the city of Cleveland will ever welcome LeBron back...

I don't understand why people

I don't understand why people take this whole Lebron thing so seriously.. Dude plays basketball.. he's not God.. He's just another man walking this earth like everyone else. Nothing new or amazing about that. All I'm saying is.. get over it.. who gives a flying fuck what team he plays for? It's just basketball www.yuregininsesi.com

I guess I just don't

I guess I just don't understand but just because he has fans of his work from a certain demographic does this mean he has to stay where he is not happy? I think LeBron following his own life dreams in the pursuit of happiness Should set a precident for all athletes. It is all strictly business, and money should never be anyone's sole motivator. Comrads and life style make for huge differences. If you were his fan you still should be....

I absolutely agree...and in

I absolutely agree...and in this case, money couldn't have been the motivator because he took a pay cut to go to Miami. Granted the whole "Decision" thing being televised may have been a bit much, but at the end of the day it is HIS decision and not anyone elses. I was a LeBron fan while he was in Cleveland and I'll continue to be a fan of his, he's a GREAT player! What I can't understand is why this is even still an issue...

WHAT! *rubs eyes* Did an NBA player just give a short and sweet interview? No rambling? No mumbling? Well at least he talked in 3rd person so i can be sure it's him! www.theblackcouple.com

It took a rape charge to humble a very self centered Kobe Bryant. I wonder what's going to happen to this clown? He's so child-like.

Lebron needs to have a

Lebron needs to have a conversation with O J, Mike Tyson, Michael Vick and Plaxico Burress, just to name a few, he thinks the NBA revolves around him. David Stern is only letting this drama last because of $$$$$$$$$$$$$, watch yourself Brother,there is a target on your back, and you are too stupid to realize it, keep clowning, there are other ballers that will keep the NBA strong (Kobe, Rose, Rhondo, Nora, Howard etc) as you self destruct.

It's sad that you are rooting

It's sad that you are rooting for this young man's demise at the expense of others .... hmmm & if you are black it's even more shameful. Compared to the others you listed .... his ego is not that big ... what he did was self-centered in many ways but ego tripping - I strongly doubt that - he seems to be more humble than the list above. That list is filled with arrogant men who learn lesson's the hard way & I think M.Vick has certainly learned his & I don't wish him anymore ill. Lift them up instead of tearing them down when they have self-destruct - we will all be in such a position at some point in life.

wow maybe he does not want to

wow maybe he does not want to be michael jordan cheating on his wife, having women have abortions, gambling habits etc etc. let's remeber jordan did not win without pippen, dennis rodman come on!!. maybe he did not want to be kobe, accused of paid off to be free!! selfish player who thinks the team won the championship because of him. kobe gets mvp look at the stats and than tell me he is a team player. maybe he did not want to be charles barkley remember barkley left to go on a champion team. Maybe he just wanted to be his own man!! not owned as the owner express as if he was a slave. maybe he wanted to be a part of a team the way it was like when bird had mchale and parish or magic had kareem, worthy, ac green, etc.. maybe he just wants to grow as a plyer and be his own man. I am sure he cares about what the haters thinks as he lives in a mansion, travels takes cares of his kids,do not have to be concerned with what you guys are doing with your lives!! Just maybe !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lebron is a dancer, not a baller. He dance to much on the sideline to ever win anything higher than MVP. A ring he will never have.

Lebron is just stating and he will make mistakes like all the others. We are talking about RINGS and being CHAMPIONS. And Lebron won't ever get mentioned in those categories on the COURT under another TOP PLAYER.

Lebron needs to stop being narcissistic.... Damn it, he speaks as if he's being told what to say.."Lebron has to say this, do that, think this"... Come ON! Speak in first person please!

Lebron is told what to say.

Lebron is told what to say. That Press Conference was the culmination of many days prep. Lebron is about as organic as a Nike Swoosh. His Brand took a hit big time and it will be interesting to see how this plays out in Miami. It just makes you appreciate true CHAMPIONS like Kobe and Jordan. They have the RINGS and the LEGACY that Lebron may never GET.

Lebron made a POOR DECISION

Lebron made a POOR DECISION and its HOW he made the decision that will reflect not only on him but the entire sport. People view him in a totally different light. And it's not what a true LEADER would do. I agree that Jordan did have a team as did Kobe...a Team of people that helped him. The difference is that Lebron gave up his role as a LEADER to play on D-Wade's Team. It's a Win Win for D-Wade and Chris Bosh. But Lebron was supposed to be the Next Jordan and he gave that up just to win and that is what people have a problem with. AND how he did it. And those are all valid reasons. You don't just do anything to win. And he removed himself from the Category that people like Kobe and Jordan are in. Those are the facts. He made a decision that was poor all the way around and for what? Just to win? Jordan was 100% correct in what he said. He would never do that.

What kind of decisions have u

What kind of decisions have u made in life? Who are u to say if Lebron made a poor or good decision surely if u had the choice to make a big decision like Lebron did u prolly would make a poor one too but sorry u are not that great of a person to have that choice! Bye hater

Sorry, but there is nothing

Sorry, but there is nothing great about Lebron. The decision to leave...who cares, it was the way he did it and with a press conference....he's a clown.

LEBRON "HATED" on his own

LEBRON "HATED" on his own LEGACY. He wanted to be a regular player as opposed to a LEADER. He was a man who was about to become KING. Now he is a subject of D-WADE's TEAM. This is great news for him and Miami. Chris Bosh even comes up. That SI cover said it all with D-WADE in Front and LEBRON JAMES behind him. He can look back on this as on of the worst decisions made in Sports History.
FURIOUS STYLE's picture

Not one game has been played

Not one game has been played yet you seem to know the outcome of his career. WOW!!! I cannot wait until they win their first ring so haters like you can shut up! If they do not win a ring this year it doesn't mean that they will never win one. LeBron is still going to be Lebron no matter what team he is on.
Anonymous's picture

It doesn't matter if they win

It doesn't matter if they win a ring two or three years from now. What matters is 2010-2011!! That's all people are looking at. If he doesn't win a ring THIS SEASON his career is going to take a big hit
IfThisIsIt's picture

WRONG. He's not going to be

WRONG. He's not going to be LEBRON of OLD. He's not on D-WADE's TEAM he's not the main man anymore. And If they win (which I highly doubt) the point is still valid that he left a position of leadership just to win. That's not what Champions do. And even "IF" he wins he won't ever Touch Kobe's record or Jordan's. NEVER! he does not have what it takes.

LeBron made the best decision

LeBron made the best decision for him. Damn! how long do people want him to keep losing? Face it, Cleveland had gotten much better but they weren't going to win a ring in the next 3 years with or without him. THats great some of you feel like he bailed. You all can stay with losers if you want, he wants to win. He rode it out with them long enough, time to move on and try something new because obviously, it wasn't working. And so what if Miami doesn't win a ring the very first season he plays for them, I bet they win one before Cleveland does! I dont think it shows a lack of dedication to Cleveland, I think it shows the young man is hungry and Cleveland is not feeding him! WHat a shame to be dogged for wanting to do better.

WRONG. Cleveland was great to

WRONG. Cleveland was great to him and it's HOW he made his decision that left a bad taste in their mouth. That PR FREAK Show was not needed. He should have been upfront and said he wanted to make a move and people would have respected that more. And Lebron has some Responsibility in WHY Cleveland did not win it's not just the people around him but his LEADERSHIP as well. Maybe the lesson here is that Lebron James is not a TEAM LEADER. He much rather play the back and win and when they win D-WADE will be spoken about in a way that Lebron James will not because guess what? It's D-WADE's team. This is what Jordan is talking about. He would never give up being Michael Jordan, Having a TEAM built up around him to play under ANY other Player. Nor Would Kobe. These men are LEADERS and people felt Lebron was as well and they were ALL wrong. If Lebron wants to play under another man....yes that is his choice people are just very surprised. And how he did was never before done in Sports. That is why Lebron is not KING JAMES anymore. He's just another player.
