The Plain Dealer also reported that in the interview that airs Sunday on the Oprah Winfrey Network that James regretted the way he announced his departure from Cleveland for Miami.

He said that Gilbert's harsh words hurt his feelings because he felt he worked very hard as a Cavalier. 

So tell us, do you feel bad now?

WOW "wmfr", what did LeBron ever do to you for you to dislike him? And for the rest of you haters, if you were given the choice of going after something bigger & better for yourself & your family, some of you wouldn't care how you went about it either. Yes he could have made his move differently, but he didn't. Congrats, LeBron, for going after the dream you've had for years!

So I am a " hater " if I dislike an athlete? or is it if I don't afree with you Cee Jay I am a hater? I can care less if LBJ is here or plays in Germany, or the moon. I've never liked him and I have that right, I am not a sheep like some. I form my own opinions on people and do not like Lebron James. So go on and idiolize LBJ but learn to respect the opinions of others =-)

If you are a young contract worker with a family, making mediocre money for a fortune 10,000,000,000 company and your contract is up do you hang out hoping for a better contract and pray your company invests in better team players so your company's rankings improve? Or...since you are young, have a family to feed, and desire a better career and chance to advance with a company, do you go with a Fortune 500 company with profit sharing, better benefits, better management, bonuses and incredible team players?? Think about it...!! We still get his tax money here, he still invests in our kids and gives back to NE Ohio constantly through many charities and functions. Personally, I'm glad he left and got his ring. Dan Gilbert is just like the rest of the Cleveland team owners...CHEAP!! I don't see any of them even close to being champions because they won't invest in their players!!

I'm not sure Dan Gilbert became one of the most successful businessmen today by being cheap... Ahahaha. Dan Gilbert has built his businesses on loyalty, respect and great teamwork. All redeeming qualities of which Lebron James clearly lacks. Listen... It's not his fault he's got few inherently good qualities or morals.... You don't get "pairs" from apple trees GLORIA! Now there's a class act. If I had my choice... I would pick Dan Gilbert any day.... "a family to feed".... Haha! Lisa V must be a young naive recent college grad..... He took LESS money to go to Miami!! N
