LeBron James Says LeBron James is Humble

Cavs fans are burning his jersey.

Baby mama Savannah Brinson is unhappy with the move to Miami.

But in the latest issue of GQ, LeBron James says he has no regrets about signing as a free agent with the Heat this summer, nor about the ridiculous, self-centered way in which he announced that decision on an hour-long ESPN program.

In one of the funniest, least self-aware quotes ever uttered, the NBA star says he's "humble because I know my background, know what my mother went through. I never get too high on my stardom or what I can do. My mom always says, and my friends say, ‘You’re just a very low-maintenance guy.’”

Yes, the same man that took the unprecedented move of revealing his free agency destination on a televised special just referred to himself as "humble" and "low-maintenance." We'll give you a moment to stop laughing...

James also showed how ego-free he is by referring to himself in the third person during the interview and failing to understand why Cleveland fans might hold a grudge. Try not to vomit as you read these excerpts...

On his hatred for Cleveland: "Clevelanders, because they were the bigger-city kids when we were growing up, looked down on us... So we didn't actually like Cleveland. We hated Cleveland growing up. There's a lot of people in Cleveland we still hate to this day."

On fans that burned his jersey: "Maybe the ones burning my jersey were never LeBron fans anyway."

On Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, who wrote scathing email about him: “I don’t think he ever cared about LeBron. My mother  always told me: ‘You will see the light of people when they hit adversity. You’ll get a good sense of their character.’ Me and my family have seen the character of that man.”
