James, born and raised in Akron, Ohio joined the Miami Heat in 2010 after seven seasons with the Cavaliers. Lebron debunked any rumors of his departure from the Miami Heat as a result of the Heat’s inability to sign role players and attributed his decision to a desire to bring his hometown a championship:
When I left Cleveland, I was on a mission. I was seeking championships, and we won two. But Miami already knew that feeling. Our city hasn’t had that feeling in a long, long, long time. My goal is still to win as many titles as possible, no question. But what’s most important for me is bringing one trophy back to Northeast Ohio.
Following Lebron’s televised announcement on “The Decision” back in 2010, Cavs owners Dan Gilbert posted an angry letter on the team’s official site bashing James for his decision and promising the Cavs would win a championship before James. According to Lebron, he has forgiven Gilbert but does admit that due to the team’s youth, a championship soon should not be expected:
I’m not promising a championship. I know how hard that is to deliver. We’re not ready right now. No way. Of course, I want to win next year, but I’m realistic. It will be a long process, much longer than it was in 2010.
