Klutch Sports announced LeBron’s decision to opt out of the final year of his deal with the Cavs. This announcement triggered an avalanche of reactions, and both NBA fans and players expressed their opinion. Cavs reserve forward Cedi Osman shared a lengthy message to his former teammate.
“Some people bring out the worst in you, others bring out the best. And there are remarkably rare ones who just bring out the most of everything that even you don’t know that you have. They build you up. They make you feel alive. They make you feel strong. They make you feel indisputable. From the first moment we met, you’ve always been that rare one for me, King,” Osman said.
“I don’t believe in coincidences. I choose to believe my path crossed with you for a reason. And that reason will be uncovered as I continue to walk through. Please accept my highest gratitude for your support and appreciation for your inspiration. I’m truly blessed to have been surrounded by your charm,” Osman added in his touching message.
Osman likes being part of the Cleveland Cavaliers. He likes the organization, and respects the players. “For me it’s really amazing being on this team. We have great players, great coaches, this is a championship team. And from the first day when we came in as new players LeBron was saying we have to live as a champion from the first day. So, that’s how I’m doing,” he noted.
Kevin Love has to say pretty much the same about King James. “I know I said earlier, he never takes his foot off the gas. He continues to be a leader. He continues to be LeBron. A lot of times he is very vocal about it, and sometimes he just leads by example. But he’s the type of guy that he wakes up every day, punches the clock, puts in his time and we follow everything that he does,” Love said.
Love and Osman aren’t the only players who admire the big LeBron. His moving to LA is nothing but business. King James already said that Cleveland will always be his home.
