LeBron James on The Decision: ‘I would definitely change it’

Speaking to the media from the New Jersey area, LeBron James acknowledged that he may have erred in how he handled the announcement of his free agency decision.

“If I had to go back on it, I probably would have done it a little bit differently,” James said. “But I am happy with the decision that I made.” James was then asked if he would change his approach. “I mean, I don’t know,” he said. “But I would definitely change it.”

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Hallelujah. Praise the Lord. He finally gets it.

Yesterday, LeBron James came clean, admitting his one-hour television show known as The Decision was a flawed monstrosity.

In case you’ve been living in a cave: in July, James announced on national television he was leaving his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers and signing with the Miami Heat as a free agent.

There’s nothing wrong with swapping Cleveland for Miami. And there’s nothing wrong with swapping Jamario Moon and Candace Parker’s brother for Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade.

In fact, you and I would do the exact same thing.

So it’s not what James did, but how he did it. The superstar three-man, an Ohio native, broke up with the state that raised and supported him on national television.

His free agency became a reality show spectacle. And James, rightfully, took ‘heat’ (pun intended) from fans, media, and the general public.

Of course, this was just a quasi epiphany. While James publicly conceded he would change The Decision, he had no specifics on what he’d change.

Oh well, baby steps.
