LeBron Was Disappointed By Miami's Decision To Amnesty Mike Miller

The decision by the Miami Heat in the 2013 offseason to amnesty Mike Miller drew the ire of LeBron James.

The move saved the Heat money while taking away a key locker room guy and rotation player with big game experience.

"LeBron thought it was an unnecessary change," Miller told Northeast Ohio Media Group.

Miller signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers this offseason.

"I'm not saying I would have been a difference-maker," Miller said. "San Antonio was unbelievable last year and there are a lot of things that go into a season, but it was difficult for LeBron.

"It was difficult for all of us. It was difficult for me. I had to uproot my family and move again. It was tough. I think he was disappointed because he understands legacies and he understands what he wants to do in life. That's what makes him special."

LeBron Admits 'Greater Chance' He Stayed With Heat If They Won 13-14 Championship

LeBron James admitted in an interview with Rachel Nichols on CNN's "Unguarded" that he was more likely to stay with the Miami Heat if they had won the 2014 NBA title against the San Antonio Spurs.

James left the Heat to rejoin the Cleveland Cavaliers in July's free agency.

"It's a greater chance, for sure," James said. "It would be hard to leave back-to-back-to-back championships and try to go for four. But obviously you really can't live and think of what may have happened. I've always been a person kind of live in the moment."

James also discussed the conversation he had with Dan Gilbert before re-signing with Cleveland.

"It was a straightforward conversation. It was no beating around the bush," James said. "He basically said, 'No matter what decision you make, we wanted to clear the air to where if we see each other in public or we see each other wherever, if I'm competing against you, we can always shake each other's hands and look at the fun times that we had instead of focusing on the one night."
