  • Hey, LeBron, can you take us through your day leading up to the game today and what you were not able to do that you would normally do in a in a game back in Cleveland?

  • And what were some of the things that you mean?

  • Obviously mention your mom, but the things you were able to do that well besides not being able to stay in my own home, Um, that's the only thing that was different.

  • But I treated just like a world game.

  • Um, you know, woke up, um, went got treatment early ice down.

  • I'm started to prepare for the game.

  • We had our team meeting, um, a breakfast.

  • And then I took my nap.

  • Pregame that on got up something.

  • I got up.

  • I started, started preparing for the game a little bit and then put the film down.

  • Then I started watching Frank Sinatra documentary, um, finished that first episode, and then I got dressed and came to the renting started Prepared for the game.

  • So a normal game day routine for me, probably besides the documentary.

  • But I had a little bit more time because it's eight o'clock games, so I got an opportunity.

  • Watch.

  • It's not your doctor.

  • A little bit.

  • Oh, LeBron.

  • At the end of the third quarter, um, you missed a shot on duh.

  • Looked like you're having an interaction with somebody on the on the sideline across from Cleveland.

  • Bench was wondering who that was that someone you know.

  • And if that added a little fuel to the fire, having having someone sit in their lives, there's someone I know for sure, And, um, I felt like it was just a little bit too excited about seeing me missed.

  • And, uh, you know, So that's what that's what happened.

  • Anything else on that are He knows who he is, or e I know is, um you know, he's part of front office group, uh, you know, But, you know, it was really excited about about me missing, you know, that shot a little bit mawr extra then I would have liked, but, you know, he got a roof for him and for his team, obviously.

  • And he was, you know, showcase status.

  • So, you know, I knew I had another quarter on the fourth quarter.

  • Is my favorite, Jason Lloyd.

  • Wow.

  • So many ways to go after that one.

  • But it's been this happened twice.

  • Now, where you leave in the wheels, they have to put the wheels back on the organization, and they re build this thing over a couple of years.

  • Do you pay closer attention to them than you do any other teams?

  • Because it's hometown are they just wanted 29 a site on the nights when you're not playing them.

  • Do you watch them at all during the season?

  • Yeah.

  • Yeah.

  • I still watching because I still got a couple teammates from the team on, uh, like a little brother.

  • Minds on the team is well in hand.

  • Darius Garland.

  • Obviously, Kevin still here?

  • You know, Jedi is one of my obviously.

  • You guys know my relationship with God.

  • I love that kid so much.

  • You know, I got the opportunity play with Larry Jr as well, um, S O and then the staff.

  • Besides, you know, I didn't play for, you know, for Coach J B.

  • But a lot of their staff members were still over there a swell that I spent a lot of years with, um, and pride.

  • I call him the greatest equipment guy in the in the world.

  • You know, Mark Cashman, aca Cobra.

  • Uh, he's phenomenal.

  • Love that guy s Oh, you know, I do a place, you know, it's always play a coach attention to what's going on.

  • And I think, you know, J B has done a hell of a job and, you know, they've been drafted well and made a couple trades.

  • But, you know, you could tell that team is improving.

  • They got some some young guards that's very dynamic and column and Darius and, you know, you know, the rest of they could build around, so I got some very young pieces that they can you know, but their future behind.

  • So we'll see what happens.

  • Can you give us the initials of who of the front office guy?

  • No.

  • Now, can you give us one of the e housing like that?

  • And is this just one step in the vision?

  • I mean, are you their soul?

  • You know, Is it Is there more to come?

  • Uh, well, I mean, obviously, this is a huge project for us on us taking this building over such a prestige building such a monumental building in our hometown of Akron, Ohio.

  • Um, first of all way even.

  • Thank you know, everyone has been in part, is allowing us to take that over and do we want to do to it, But it's just about continue to change lives and power.

  • Families and power kids and, um, give them a support system that they once believed there wasn't there.

  • So for us to be over, take over this building.

  • And we're gonna outfitted with so many different, you know, avenues for us to continue to build our families continue to build our legacy through our kids and through our families.

  • But, you know, we want to make sure we get this right.

  • We've done some things, you know, way have.

  • Right?

  • Miss my kids.

  • The last two.

  • Chris Fodor.

  • Hey, Lebron, Good to see you again.

  • Um, obviously you've done the homecoming, the return thing.

  • But when you come back to Cleveland at this point in your career, do you still get those added emotions because of everything that goes into it?

  • Absolutely.

  • I mean, I've been early 18 years, and I spent 11 years out of that.

  • I'm here.

  • I'm seven and then four on, uh, to know what happened before I got here in 2003 to see the franchise and the sea.

  • You know, the type of conditions that was in for us to just build and build and build and build and build all the way to 2016 till we was able to deliver a championship to the city, To this franchise, It's something I will always remember.

  • It's a lot of things that you're gonna forget throughout your life.

  • Old age or moment.

  • Wasn't his great or, you know, you've had so many other great moments.

  • Um, but the moment that I spent here in the championship that we had a 16 and you know, being drive here, there was just moments I want I will never forget.

  • So, um, I would be unhuman, Um, even though you guys probably think I am on human the way I play the game.

  • But, um, emotionally, uh, you know, it's still there.

  • Always.

  • And then was there something that said front office member said to you that really struck a nerve.

  • Now he didn't say a word.

  • I told you he was just a little bit too excited about me missing that shot it.

  • It's a million cameras, and he's and he's, uh, he's a range.

  • What are you focusing on in your game right now?

  • What are you tinkering with or working to get better?

  • Um, you know, right now, it's all about rhythm, um, and continue to work on my conditioning.

  • Obviously, after the short off season, I didn't get an opportunity to really dive into the lab like I've I've grown accustomed to over my career when I could break down a lot of film and then break down areas where I know I need to get better at, um, I didn't have much time, obviously, because of the quick restart, I didn't have much time to do that.

  • So, you know, working myself back in thio rhythm, working myself back into, You know, the best condition I could be in for a long hard What I'm really thinking about right now and also just keeping my mind sharp was very challenging.

  • You know, when you do what we did in the bubble, then come right back to it.

  • You know, 61 or 71 days later, 71 day.

  • I think there's something.

  • Um it was just, you know, you didn't even get an opportunity to kind of, like, let your mind just just can't even just, like, relax or just let my mind just go elsewhere.

  • Back of my mind.

  • You know, once they set that date for December 1st, my mind was already had to think about basketball.
