What to think about LeBron James returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers and their owner, Dan Gilbert, who didn’t exactly endear himself to the King when he left the City by the Lake for sunshine in Miami?
How about this — take him for his word?
I remember I wasn’t exactly happy with LeBron leaving in the first place — even though I am not endeared by the Cavaliers, I don’t hate them — because I thought/hoped he might end up with my beloved Los Angeles Lakers — despite the selfishness of one Kobe Bryant.
My thoughts evolved on the matter over the years as I’ve gotten into my golden years — OK; not so golden years! I don’t think I hated LeBron as much as I hated what is happening throughout major pro sports with the money and such.
I am like a man trying to hold back the flood with a sponge!
I didn’t understand the hatred for the man for making an honest mistake in how his First Decision was presented; we are all human and he profusely apologized for how he did it.
I took him for his words — eventually.
