LeBron James Comments on Whether He Owes It to Cleveland to Stay After This Season
- Updated: October 17, 2017
On Tuesday, GQ Magazine published an interview with Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James in which the publication named him the greatest living athlete on earth. In the interview, James discussed what he believes he owes the city of Cleveland and its fans.
“LeBron James owes nobody anything,” he said. “Nobody. When my mother told me I don’t owe her anything, from that point in time, I don’t owe anybody anything. But what I will give to the city of Cleveland is passion, commitment, and inspiration. As long as I put that jersey on, that’s what I represent. That’s why I’m there—to inspire that city. But I don’t owe anybody anything.”
His answer may come as somewhat of a surprise to fans, but it cannot be denied that his passion, commitment, and inspiration has been instrumental in turning the Cavaliers into a perennial contender in the NBA.
James himself took to social media to promote the featured article.
There is no doubting what James has done for the city of Cleveland. While his future with the Cavaliers is still unknown, we can be sure that he will continue to do all he can to bring another championship to The Land as long as he’s wearing the Wine and Gold.
