Default LBJ Opens up to Rachel Nichols

http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=7322249

Sorry if this was posted earlier. This interview is kind of a wow! Tired of playing the villain...sorry for the way he left...wants to have fun again. Someone does not like being hated.

I think it's funny people a month or two ago were like "I like him embracing the "villain" role." Now he's totally shying away from it and wants to be liked.

LeBron's ego since about grade 11 was built around being 'the chosen one', being that global icon, 'the first billionaire athlete'. LeBron cannot be the player he is if he continues to be hated by large segments of fans and doesn't live up to the expectations of the first billionaire athlete or global icon. I think his confidence would be shattered and his will to compete would be destroyed and he would become very limited as a result.

It's kind of sad really if that happens. He has the talent to be something really special.

So kind of like how he played in the Finals, again?

Also... I totally read the headline as LBG Opens up Rachel Nichols and figured it was going to be about him plowing her.

Cool interview. I, for one, could care less about Lebron as a "hero' or "villain". All the soap opera, extra curricular garbage is pretty meaningless to me. I just like to see him play the game to the best of his abilities.

Good for him. I think LeBron is being more honest and is starting to admit he made mistakes. The fans will embrace him again in a season or two.

Not quite blonde, is she? More of a dirty blonde.

Well maybe he wouldn't be so hated if he just shut his mouth and played basketball.

+1, LeBron needs to shut up and stay off Twitter, people aren't going to care about that football stuff, or buddy buddy stuff with other players. Shut up and win games.

Side note: I am disappointed that LeBron's return to Cleveland isn't even on NBATV. Even if it's not that big of a deal this year.

Whatever.... he acts like he wasnt an a** in Cleveland. He was a douche before the "decision" and he will be one after the "decision"

Side note: What the F*** did he do to his hairline??? Its growing back for some reason.. putting his money to good use I see

I heard he also went to Germany, and got the same treatment Kobe had for his knees, for his hairline.

Funny thing, i was watching the video and it stopped, "lost connection with the server", one could say the video "choked", Lebron is cursed.
