King James opened up to J.R. Moehringer about the possibility of playing again to his former team "Cleveland Cavaliers" in the future and not supporting his home team growing up.
On supporting Chicago and Jordan and not his home team growing up:
"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 playing for Cleveland again one day, “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.”
He also gave his reaction about his former boss Cavaliers' owner Dan Gilbert.
On Cavs owner Dan Gilbert: "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." He went on to say that Gilbert's post-Decision screed "made me feel more comfortable that I made the right decision."
