In an interview with HoopsHype, LeBron discussed the 2010-11 Miami Heat, working with Hakeem Olajuwon on his post game, the fans in Cleveland and more.
Here’s what he had to say about the 2012 Olympics:
What about the Olympics next year? You don’t want to commit yet?
LJ: I’m committed. I can’t wait for it – to have an opportunity to go to London and defend our gold medal from Beijing. It’s going to be great. I’ve always loved the Olympics just to be around the athletes from all over the world. Not only in my country but to see all of the athletes, it’s so fun… I have a great deal respect for all other athletes that are competing as well.
Later, he was asked about the MVP award.
Did you think you have a real shot at winning the MVP last season?
LJ: Just the thing I did. The change from Cleveland to Miami wasn’t going to allow me to win the MVP.
No matter what.
LJ: No matter. It didn’t matter.
What about next season?
LJ: I got a chance. But they made me take a year off.
It’s interesting that he blames The Decision for not winning the MVP award.
