|LeBron James Was 'Hurt' By Dan Gilbert's Letter|
We all knew LeBron James took the criticism from the fallout of 'The Decision' in 2010 personally, and who could blame him really? The most harsh commentary came from his former employer Dan Gilbert, owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers, who penned a stinging letter blasting James and vowing that the Cavaliers would win a championship before their former star would. We now know how that worked out for them.
James, in an interview with mogul Oprah Winfrey, admitted that he was "hurt" by the comments made by Gilbert.
"It was hurtful because I know how much I put into that organization, and every night I'm out on the floor I tried to give it my all and I tried to bring a championship to that city every single night," said James, who didn't win a title with the Cavaliers from 2003-10, losing 4-0 to San Antonio in 2007 in their only Finals appearance. "But, at the same time, I understood that everyone has their opinion. Everybody has a right to say what they want to say and there's nothing I can do about that."
The interview will be aired over two nights in the US and also features his teammates Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.
