After The Victory, LeBron James offered The Apology and The Explanation for The Decision. It’s unclear what he’ll do for an encore if the Miami Heat win the NBA championship — wait, last night’s victory over the Boston Celtics clinched a series and not the title? — but there’s no reason to think about that just yet.
“To have this success so far in the postseason with one of your friends, it means a lot,” James said. “I apologize for the way it happened, but I knew that this opportunity was once in a lifetime and to be able to come down here and pair up with two guys and pair up with this organization — in order for me to move on in my career, that team that we just defeated — had to go through them at some point.”
