LeBron James relates to Brett Favre
"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."
James scored 38 points in a 118-90 win in his first game back in Cleveland on Thursday night despite intense scrutiny in the days leading up to the game and a rowdy crowd.
