LeBron James on Fan Anger: ‘You Have to Get Over it’

by October 22, 2010

James understands the pain and hurt that fans feel when their favorite players leave, but says they gotta let it go. ESPN has the quotes: “James said Thursday he can relate to why many fans, especially from his home state, continue to be angry at him. But he also said people upset with his decision to sign with the Heat need to move on. ‘If I was a fan and I was on the outside looking in, I could be upset a little bit if one of my favorite players left,’ James said. ‘Or if I felt like he betrayed us or whatever the case may be. But you have to get over it.’ James later tweeted that he was not speaking specifically to Cavaliers’ fans: ‘Let’s clear this up! I never said to the Cavs fans to ‘get over it.’ I’ve never and will never say anything bad about them. 7 years of joy!'”
