During last year's NBA Finals, LeBron James revealed he had a "secret motivation" driving him to win a championship in Cleveland. He wouldn't reveal until he actually won.
Now that he has, James finally revealed it, and it looks like it is about James' former boss in Miami, Pat Riley.
“[James] told me that when he left Miami and people who he thought he had strong, trusting relationships with – he said, I’m not going to name names, but someone told me that ‘you’re making the biggest mistake of your career.’
“And he said it really hurt him. Basically, he felt taken for granted. ‘Look, I just gave you four years of my prime, and you’re not going to be comfortable with my decision and root me on? You’re going to make me feel bad going out the door?’”
It definitely can't be Dwyane Wade or Chris Bosh telling James this. Heck, not even Mario Chalmers either. It can't be owner Micky Arison either, who congratulated James on winning his third ring.
All signs point to Riley, as he and James looked like they ended on bad terms. Riley did sneakily call out James after the Heat's 2014 NBA Finals loss to the San Antonio Spurs.
My money's on Riley with this quote. What do you think?
