Minutes after the Cavaliers were done throttling the Cleveland Cavaliers in LeBron Jame’s homecoming, James spoke to TNT’s Craig Sager and his relatively mild suit this time around. You can see the video below.
At one point James said he would “just try to continue the greatness for myself here in Miami and just try to get better every day.” That phrasing lit up twitter with people saying he sounding egotistical and selfish. He tweeted about the comment later.
Did a post game interview with Craig Sager and I mentioned “Greatness” and I didn’t mean my self individually, I meant to say US as a TEAM working towards “Greatness”. Anyways Great Team Win for US tonight!
Watch the whole interview (the comment in question is around the 1:15 mark) and decide for yourself.
