Before the Heat faced off against the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday, Lebron compared himself to a player who left Wisconsin for Minnesota.
We get more from ESPN True Hoop:
The Heat forward was asked before Miami played the Bucks on Monday night if he could relate to Brett Favre’s bitter departure from Wisconsin three seasons ago.
“Brett [had] great years here in Green Bay, and any time a great competitor like that leaves, no one wants to see that, but they’ve done a great job of regrouping with Aaron Rodgers and I believe that Cleveland will do the same,” James said.
Favre was traded to the New York Jets in 2008 after the Packers’ franchise grew tired of the three-time NFL MVP’s offseason indecision. James left Cleveland for Miami as a free agent this offseason in a one-hour TV special dubbed “The Decision.”
We’ll be keeping tabs just in case any cell-phone pictures come to light but for once a post about Brett Favre and Lebron James has a somewhat happy ending.
