NBC’s Matt Lauer To Interview Lebron James For Thanksgiving Special
I would like to give thanks to Lebron myself.
His “Decision” making throughout the summer has guaranteed my Lil Princess will have a bountiful Christmas, so thank you King of South Beach.
Matt Lauer is hosting a NBC Thanksgiving special about the most interesting people in our nation and Lebron made the list. Here is a portion of that interview:
LAUER: …And the decision not to tell the Cleveland Cavaliers before you made the public decision?
LEBRON: I think maybe that coulda been handled a little bit different //I never regret anything I do //but when you look back on things, you could say “Well, maybe you change this or change that.”
RE: The messaging in his new Nike commercial:
LAUER: Should I be who YOU want me to be? That’s the message here. I mean when it comes right down to it, that’s the question you’re asking people. And the answer you’re giving is “No.”
LEBRON: You can’t live your life on someone else’s path. Just can’t do it. You never accomplish what you wanna accomplish in life.
LAUER: The other line in there that jumps out at me LeBron is “Should I believe that I’ve ruined my legacy?” Do you think you’ve damaged your legacy at all?
LeBron: Well, that’s pending. I got a lot of time
It isn’t normal for a person “not to have regrets”. When people say that I assume they are lying, because we all wish we could change some things even the rich and famous.
With athletes and entertainers, their egos are so big they just can’t admit when they are wrong.
Lebron knows deep down he could have handle the “Decision” better— his ego is just too massive to say it in public.
I do agree with him that his legacy is “pending”, because lot of chapters to be written in his book before it is all said and done. He needs to be careful, though, when he says he has a “lot of time”—that is the same thing Dan Marino said after he lost a Super Bowl in his 2nd year and he never got back.
Lebron needs to have more of a sense of urgency, because winning a title is not easy even if you are teamed up with the South Beach NWO.
