LeBron James sat down with Rachel Nichols of CNN, formerly of ESPN, to talk about winning his second NBA Finals. He is making sure to slow down and enjoy this one because he knows now how quickly it goes away.
“Last year the time went by so fast,” LeBron James said. “It’s gone, it’s gone like that. I’m going to make sure I take full advantage of this one.”
James also said that this one was tougher to win than last years.
“This one right here was definitely tougher. I don’t know if it was trying to repeat. I’ll tell you one thing I love the feeling of winning.”
To motivate himself during the NBA Finals he watches videos of Michael Jordan’s title runs with the Bulls.
She asked a question that has been at the center of many LeBron James rumors. That he could return to Cleveland and try to win an NBA Title in his hometown. She also asked how will he handle it, after many people say he mishandled the announcement that he was going to Miami and leaving Cleveland.
“I don’t know. I haven’t even really thought about it. So when that time comes I’ll approach it like a professional,” James said. “You learn from your mistakes, and that’s something I’ve been able to do and something I’ve live with… if I’m in that position again I’ll be able to handle it much better.”
