LeBron James apologizes for the way "The Decision" went down.

Posted by Matt Moore




In his post-game comments following the Heat's 97-87 win over the Celtics to win their series 4-1, LeBron James apologized for the way "The Decision" want down.  James told reporters that he was sorry for how the one-hour special occurred, but felt that teaming up with Bosh and Wade in Miami was necessary to get past the Celtics. As CBSSports.com's Ken Berger reports, James told reporters:
"I knew I had to go through Boston at some point. I went through a lot signing to be here and the way it panned out. I apologize for the way it happened, but I knew that this opportunity was once in a lifetime."
James will continue to receive condemnation over the event, for his attitude, approach, and behavior. But after the game, he spoke candidly to TNT's Craig Sager about how much of a demon the Celtics represented to him:
"First of all thanks to the Boston Celtics, coach Rivers, that coaching staff, those player, they make you fight for everything. You can never take a second off. "
James was tortured by the Celtics, who swooped in after his 2007 Finals run and took over the Eastern Conference. Their own version of the Big 3 raised the bar for rosters, leaving James frustrated with how his Cavaliers team compared. Right or wrong, James felt compelled to raise the talent around to him to a higher level. He did so, and on Tuesday night, that decision, "The Decision" proved to be the right one for his career agenda. 


How he did it was wrong. It was always wrong, and somewhere inside him, James knew that, despite refusing to apologize for it in Cleveland earlier this year. It may seem easy to apologize now that he's made the Conference Finals and gotten past the Celtics, but for someone who has made so many P.R. gaffes over the last year, it's a step in the right direction, this humilty. This is the LeBron James Reclamation Project now. It started with beating the Celitcs in Miami.  It will only truly end with a championship ring.

LeBron James apologizes for "The Decision"

Basketball was more fun to watch when the star players competed against each other and didnt team up.  I mean really. The Pacers and 76ers made the playoffs this year. What a waste. The difference in talent between Miami and Philly made for a joke of a playoff series. 
This old saw? I started watching ball in the 80s. Teams were stacked. And the sucky teams really sucked. The stacked teams like the Sixers, Lakers, Celtics, etc... had several stars and great role players. The teams were most certainly 'stacked'. The bad teams had one or two stars and benches not as deep...sound familiar?

At least in this era a team like the Sixers care enough to take the Heat to 5 or 6. The Pacers did the same. The freaking GRIZZLIES dang near swept a 1 seed and now are taking the Thunder to the brink! This has been great basketball.

I think the league does need to contract but let's just stop fooling ourselves into thinking that the reason 'the league sucks' is because all of the players are deciding to do something new. It's not new at all. It's the way the league has always been. I wasn't even watching basketball then and I bet back during the Celtics' famed run you had teams breaking their backs to stack up to beat them to break their streak.

Actually, Dwayne Wade won on his own. The only other "superstar" on that team was a very ineffective Shaq.


During the 2008-09 season, when they lost to the Magic 4-2, none of the Cavaliers players other than Lebron James had a player efficiency rating higher than 14.5.  The league AVERAGE is 15.

Wade's 2006 championship team had three players OTHER THAN WADE with at least a 15 PER.  Shaq (24.4), Jason Williams (15), and Alanzo Mourning (19.4). 

Like I said, NOBODY does it alone.

LeBron James apologizes for "The Decision"

Boston had won the regular season series 3-1.  Everyone had a great laugh at their expense after the first two games that were played in October and November of last year when the Heat had hardly played together while incorporating Dwyane Wade back. Yet this was supposed to mean the Heat couldn't beat the Celtics in the playoffs.

 

Too much veteran savviness. Too much postseason experience.

 

Well, after a soul-crushing 16-0 run in crunch time tonight led by none other than LeBron James, the Celtics are officially done for. 

 

No excuses, Celtics. You got beat down in 5 games. Forget the injuries or the refs. The better team won. End of story.

LeBron James apologizes for "The Decision"

First, even if the Heat win, it will be TAINTED! he is Robin to Batman. He is the new Scottie Pippen! Second, He is not a leader. I was hating when he was in C town and still do. What, You think we should like him? I root for my team, not individual players. those players whould crap on your head first chance they get. You think they care about you? Third, It's baskeball. Get real it means nothing in life. These guys think they arer important. Act like thye are "kings" most will be broke 5 years aftert they leave the NBA. You think LeQueer is going to help any of them? No way. So call me a hater I am. You go ahead and root for him. I'll call you a fool!
