During this sneak peak of Oprah with the Miami Heat's Lebron Jaames, Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade, James said that he was hurt by the letter Cleveland Cavs owner Dan Gilbert wrote following LBJ's "The Decision", when left Northeast Ohio for South Beach.
""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," James said.
While I am sure James was shocked when Gilbert went ham on him with the letter, James himself has to take some part of the Cavs owner's still ridicueld moment.
Just like Gilbert's letter was unprofessional, The fact that LBJ didn't call Gilbert to let him know he was leaving Cleveland was unprofessional as well, especially since Gilbert did a lot for James' family and freinds as well as spent money trying find players to help Lebron out on the court.
I know, this is the part will people say, King James didn't have any help, even though they had the best record in the league the final two years of LBJ's career in Cleveland.
During the time Lebron was in Cleveland, he did not recruit players like he did with the Heat and he kept signing short term deals. So if you were a free agent and you wanted to play with Lebron, you would probably pass on the Cavs because you had no idea if King James would stay or go after his three year contract ended.
To be honest, the only party that should really be hurt by this whole process are the fans of the Cleveland Cavaliers, who cheered Lebron with every powder toss and pre-game skits as well as supported him, even when he pounded the ball and he was forced to make a streaky outside shot or pass to an unsuspecting teammate.
The funny thing is that part of the reason why Lebron was able to win a ring with the Miami Heat was because he dribbled the ball and less and posted up more, moves that the Cavs wanted him to do but he hardly did in Cleveland.
Like Lebron, I am also from Akron.
The fact that I am critcizing him will probably get me run out of the town, but I have to be fair.
While I am glad that he was able to achieve his dream of a championship ring, Cavs fans are painfully going through another rebuild led by Kyrie Irving and Byron Scott.
So while, LBJ might be hurt by Dan Gilbert's half-cocked letter.
Cleveland fans are hurt that he never bothered to write them one before he left.
