LeBron on Gilbert's comments: "I absolutely know I made the right decision"

Jul 10, 2010, 11:47 AM EST

Man, is this going to get awkward.

At the press-conference… and I use that term loosely, to introduce LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh as the new Heat triumvirate yesterday, LeBron reacted to Gilbert’s diatribe comments in his letter to the fans of Cleveland (and subsequent interviews).

Courtesy of Heat blog Peninsula is Mightier on the scene (audio here):

“And to also hear my former owners’ comments, I absolutely know I made the right decision.”

Well, then.

This is an ugly, messy situation in which neither side is making things any easier. Gilbert’s ruining his respectability and looks petty and small, LeBron looks petty for responding to it. Wade has said he feels terrible for what he did to Cleveland, but at the same time, as long as he keeps making any statement or movement that drives the dagger deeper, those comments will be overridden. .

And so it goes. No amicable split, no chance of a future reunion. No quarter given, none taken.

And the people that really suffer from all this, the fans of the Cavs, get to wake every day with the latest reminder of what they consider is the biggest betrayal of all.

    Queen James has finally stepped up to the plate and struck out admiitting he can’t do it on his own and is willing to take a back seat to Wade to put a ring on his finger what a coward hope he never wins a ring or even gets to the finals he does’nt deserve it He has become the biggest tool in the N.B.A. He has shown his colors let him live with it the rest of his jaded playing days as well as the other two the three of you have set an example to fans everywhere and it is not a good one.
