Basketball superstar, LeBron James has expressed regret over the way he left the Cleveland Cavaliers to sign with the Miami Heat on television.
Before the decision LeBron was a popular player playing for a small market team with no superstars. After the decision he became one of the most hated players in the NBA.
USA Today reports:
On what he would do differently:
“If I could look back on it I would probably change a lot of it. The fact of having a whole TV special, and people getting the opportunity to watch me make a decision on where I wanted to play, I probably would change that. Because I can now look and see if the shoe was on the other foot and I was a fan, and I was very passionate about one player, and he decided to leave, I would be upset too about the way he handled it.”
How the hatred from fans affected him:
“It basically turned me into somebody I wasn’t. When you start to hear ‘the villain,’ now you have to be the villain. And I started to buy into it. I started to play the game of basketball at a level or in a mind state that I had never played at before. I mean angry. That’s mentally, and that’s not the way I play the game of basketball.”
