LeBron James sure isn't trying to hide the toll a loss in the NBA Finals took on his mind.
During a recent radio interview, James admitted that he didn't sleep much following the Game 6 loss to the Dallas Mavericks.
"It took me about two or three weeks before I started to relax and started to move on just a little bit," he said on 790 The Ticket in Miami. "You definitely didn't want to be around me the first couple of weeks after the Finals. I kinda sheltered myself and covered myself away from everybody and it just gave me time to just sit back and think about ways I could become a better person, better man, and better basketball player. I was devastated. I've had a few low points in my life and that was definitely one of them."
James was also asked if he would do anything differently if he could replay that seven-game series against the Mavericks, and surprisingly he said that he would.
"I would do everything differently to see if we could change the outcome," he said. "But you learn from those experiences and at the end of the day they have to help you get better for the next opportunity."

Kenny and Doc look down the barrel of a gun as they discuss the top stories of 2011, including Tim Tebow, LeBron James, and that unspeakable college football thing.
MIAMI (AP) -- LeBron James was the first one on the floor, swishing the first shot he took. Dwyane Wade arrived with a candy cane behind his right ear. Chris Bosh gestured to the fans with his usual intensity.
Miami's stars gave fans what they wanted Thursday night.
But a Heat rookie might have provided the biggest surprise.

When LeBron James talks about the great things that happened for him in the Chicago of his youth (going to Tim Grover's gym, meeting Michael Jordan and Jay-Z), that's a shoutout to William Wesley without saying the words "William Wesley," which William Wesley would not like.

At various times during Monday’s media day, Heat players were asked about Chris Paul’s impending move to the Clippers, as well as the Clippers’ failed bid to land Paul.
It also was a day when Heat players were united in their desire to add Chauncey Billups, only to learn before they left AmericanAirlines Arena that Billups had unexpectedly been claimed off waivers by the guard...
