I mean, I decided this morning I went day to day. I wake up one morning, it's this team. I wake up another morning, it's this team.
There was an error trying to load your rating for this title.
And it's a process that I felt it was I may feel like this is the best opportunity for me or not the best opportunity for me. But this morning I woke up, had a great conversation with my mom.
Once I had that conversation with her, I think I was set. The last time I changed my mind was probably in my dreams. And when I woke up this morning I knew it was the right decision. So does the team that you're going to, that you'll announce in a few minutes, do they know your decision? So the other five, on pins and needles, they don't know; they'll be listening to this? Who in this process, LeBron, have you taken advice from and who has had the biggest influence? I've taken a lot of advice from my friends and family.
LeBron James' decision: the transcript
My agent, Leon Rose, has been great. A lot of people that I look towards in a time of need or for advice, and ultimately they looked at me and said you ultimately have to live with your decision that you're going to make, and you have to do what's best for you, for your family and for you to ultimately be happy. I think the major factor and the major reason in my decision was the best opportunity for me to win and to win now and to win into the future also. And winning is a huge thing for me. Jim, you know ever since I was a rookie or even in high school, we always talked, that was the number one thing for me: Help my teammates get better and just wanting to win.
And I've done some great things in my seven years, and I want to continue to do that. How deep of an evaluation do you have to do to go through that to figure out tomorrow, next year and beyond, that equation, that winning? One thing that you can't control is you never know. You want to put yourself in the position where you feel that it's the best opportunity.
But saying I can win a championship next year or saying I can win it a year after, those are things that you don't know until you go out there and actually play the game. But you have to put yourself in the right position to be able to compete and also accomplish the goals that you set out for. Would you like to sleep on it a little longer, or are you ready to make this decision? You've had everybody else biting their nails.

So I guess it's time for them to stop chewing. The answer to the question everybody wants to know: LeBron, what's your decision? In this fall, this is very tough, in this fall I'm going to take my talents to South Beach and join the Miami Heat. Like I said before, I feel like it's going to give me the best opportunity to win and to win for multiple years, and not only just to win in the regular season or just to win five games in a row or three games in a row, I want to be able to win championships.
And I feel like I can compete down there. Well, I mean, I'm looking forward to it. To say it was always in my plans, I can't say it was always in my plans because I never thought it was possible. But the things that the Miami Heat franchise have done to be able to free up cap space and to be able to put themselves in a position this summer to have all three of us, it was hard to turn down.
Those are two great players, two of the greatest players we have in this game today. The three of you will share now the spotlight and the limelight. And in many ways you're going to Dwyane Wade's team. He's been in Miami. He's won a championship. How do you think you'll be able to fit in and possibly not be the headliner all the time? For me it's not about sharing. You know, it's about everybody having their own spotlight and then just doing what's best for the team.
You know, at this point D Wade, he's the unselfish guy here. To be able to have Chris Bosh and then LeBron James, to welcome us to his team, it's not about an individual here. Because if that was the case, D Wade wouldn't have asked us to join him, or we wouldn't have asked him if it was okay to come down there. It's not about individuals. It's about a team, and that's what this game is about.

I mean, it's heartfelt for me. You know, it's hard to explain, but at the same time my heart, in the seven years I gave to that franchise, to that city, it was everything. I mean, those 20, plus fans that came out every night we played, and they seen me grow from an 18 year old kid to a 25 year old man. And I never wanted to leave Cleveland. And my heart will always be around that area. But I also felt like this is the greatest challenge for me is to move on.
I don't even see it it's not like leaving Cleveland is the whole logistic of it; it's about joining forces with the other two guys that I feel like I respect their game the most. And I feel like we have a great chance of winning and winning for multiple years. Like I said before, this is a very emotional time for me.
I know it's emotional for the fans and also for the area. I read this book and Walsh's book - neither cover to cover but the parts I needed to read at the time. Walsh's book was more facts and statistics whereas this book was more of a guide for your thought process to help you arrive at your own personal decision. The author seems to have had a more difficult time as far as incontinence than I am I had the surgery about 6 weeks ago. If I recall he had the catheter for several weeks and then had to use a condom catheter for several months so reading that had me a little apprehensive.
But it just goes to show that everybody's response to treatment will be different. One thing I will caution everyone on is that once you hit the internet, there is a lot of "marketing" for the different forms of treatment. And also, like discussed in the book, once you start telling people, everybody had an uncle or cousin and this is what "they" did.
Don't rely on one book, don't get caught up with the marketing, and as another reviewer said, filter through the 'advice" of your well meaning friends and relatives. One con is that the book doesn't really get into the Cyberknife or Proton treatments specifically, he basically focuses on surgery vs external radiation vs internal radiation. My own urologist suggested I view the two as types of external radiation which they are and not necessarily as totally different forms of treatment.
My decision was my decision, yours will be yours based on your situation and your preferences.

This book will help you think about the things you need to be thinking about. One person found this helpful. I would recommend this book to anyone who has been diagnosed with prostate cancer or has a family history. Physicians typically do not have the time or ability to explain everything to us, the patient, as we do not have all the questions that need to be asked. Most Men are faced with an somewhat fast and overwhelming situation, once diagnosed.
This book really assisted me in making an "Informed" decision. By the end of my consultation with the oncologist we had both agreed that surgery was the answer for me and not radiation. The feeling of making a very informed decision is an incredible feeling, it felt like a heavy weight was lifted off my shoulders'. The day I had my surgery this month my younger brother was diagnosed with prostate cancer, the information I learned from Dr. McHough's book helped my brother make an informed decision, though I am still sending him a copy of this book. Its biographical and personal to McHugh so it There's levels this book is good.
Its biographical and personal to McHugh so it definitely doesn't come across academic.
You clearly get the message you need to pay attention to your cancer, and filter everyone's feedback about what to do with the particulars of your situation. That said, I found the writing style repetitive, even for a short book. McHugh did a great service in helping those of us who have been recently diagnosed with prostate cancer. To have a urologist's sincere and honest perspective on this was priceless. My criticisms which are negligible compared to what this book has to offer are- 1. No real discussion of the newer types of MRIs that are being done with high diagnostic value, or genetic testing of the unstained cells from the biopsy.
McHugh had his procedure eight years ago, so maybe this isn't as current as it could be. I found the last chapter long and not very necessary. The Kindle edition of this book was replete with typos.
The Decision - Wikipedia
With all that being said, I do feel this is an absolute must read for anyone who has been diagnosed with prostate cancer and needs perspective and direction. I liked this book. While there are certainly more technical books out there, this was a good balance of the technical and personal side of decision making. I will be interested in seeing the "5 years later" and "10 years later" editions to see how everything turns out. When I was diagnosed with prostate cancer I bought several books.
The value in McHugh's book is that he had the advantage of being not only a urologist, but also a prostate cancer patient. Walsh's book is like the Bible for prostate cancer information. It's big and full of useful information. Good luck with whatever procedure to you decide on. I choose surgery, and part of my decision was based on what I had learned from McHugh's book. If you're buying this book you are probably in a quandary as to what procedure to opt for. This book with be a big help in making that decision. Again all the best. This is one among many books helpful when you get a prostate cancer diagnosis.
After reading several books and speaking to many doctors we were able to make an informed decision. Since treatment procedures change so quickly, it's important to read newly published books sort Amazon's search results by publication date. And, in our experience, the more doctors we spoke with the more options and information we were able to gather. Larger hospitals in nearby cities offered options we had not heard elsewhere, were competitively priced, and covered by our insurance in all the same ways.
