It’s kind of a bittersweet moment right now, sitting here in my school that I’m opening around these kids, around this community and then at the same time, making a switch to the other coast, being a part of the Lakers now,” James told ESPN’s Rachel Nichols as part of a wide-ranging sit-down interview.
“It’s always a tough decision when you leave home or you leave an organization that you’ve been with for multiple years. It was tough to leave the first time I left, [it was tough] when I left Miami and I’m leaving Cleveland once again, it’s definitely tough but it’s a decision that’s best for me and my family, and I think both sides feel great and appreciative of the moments and the time we have spent together.”
