LeBron James, Mo Williams talk it out

Thumbnail image for mwilliams.jpgIn the wake of all the wailing and gnashing of teeth after LeBron James made his announcement about his talents, one set of tweets in particular stood out:

Cavaliers teammate Mo Williams — one of LeBron’s closer friends on the team — felt hurt and said so in his twitter account.

”We were so damn close. So damn close now we have taken leaps and bounds backwards.”

“The only thing, and I mean the only thing I disagree with is…. If he knew somewhere else was the destination. He should have spared cle.”

Sunday Williams was flying back into Cleveland for the Cavs Youth Fund Golf Classic when his flight was delayed. And while waiting he ran into LeBron James, and the two sat down and cleared the air, according to the Akron Beacon Journal.

”Part of me is still sour . . . but I wish him the best,” Williams said Monday between holes at the Cavaliers’ Youth Fund Golf Classic at Westfield Country Club. ”He’s got enough people rooting against him, he doesn’t need one more.”

”You’ve got a guy of his caliber, it’s safe to say going into a season we’re playing for a championship just by him suiting up,” Williams said. ”We’ve been playing for a championship the last couple years, and there’s no bone in my body that wants to go in another direction.”

Williams will be back in Cleveland this fall, where new coach Byron Scott will expect him to be aggressive in an up-tempo offense that he is installing. One that should fit Williams well.

    Mo Williams appears to be a class-act, while LBJ continues to be a complete and utter douche bag.

    Why youcall LBJ a doucebag? Cause he left Cleveland? LBJ was everyone’s hero until he decided to go somewhere else to play. If LBJ is a douchebag then you’re an hypocrite. And anyone who think a player is good as long as he plays for the team he used to is an hypocryte as well. A Free agent is that, Free to go whereever he wants, you just need to learn how sports work, you need to be a real businessman to understand that, but with this big issue people created about LBJ’s decision people just showed how ignorant they remain.

    Unfortunately, Maurice, if you would’ve showed up in the playoffs he wouldn’t have left.

    You’re an idiot. LBJ is a jerk. He was a jerk before he left Cleveland and he’s still a jerk now…Because he has talent you think he’s a great guy…He has always been a p*ick…

    As far as I seen LBJ made a lot if bad (maybe ignorant) decisions in his life, yes. But if you’re gonna call him something you need to call him whatever you want for whatever reason. In this article the writer didn’t mentioned what LBJ said or did, he only talked about Mo, but then out of nothing some retarted come out saying hecs a douchebag and praising Mo. WTF FOR?We don’t even know what LBJ said, and as far as we can see he sit and Talked to Mo which is good, cause he didn’t dodge the situation. I dint like OBJect arrogant attitude because of his XKingX gimmick, but the I have a reason to call him arrogant, not like some other moron above.
    Who said they are both douchebags definitely hit the spot, cause Mo accepted having hard feeling when he is player himself and he should know how this works.
