LeBron James has come in for a lot of criticism recently for his attempts to establish a championship contending team in Cleveland.
Many so called experts have ripped into LeBron and the superstars that follow him, with the main points of concern being the willingness of players to team up, thus creating an unbalanced NBA.
Tried to recruit before
However, this is not the first time that LeBron has tried to go about recruiting superstars to the Cavs, but back during his first stint in Cleveland nobody wanted to play with the title virgin.
This revelation came from LeBron this past week, with the four-time NBA MVP revealing that he tried to get superstar ballers to Cleveland but that nobody wanted to come.
This summer, LeBron's presence managed to get Kevin Love on board from Minnesota Timberwolves via a trade, but back during his first stint in Cleveland, LeBron's reputation wasn't quite as huge.
"I recruited [before] I left here, but I just didn't win nothing so nobody wanted to play with me," James told Yahoo Sports. "I recruited. I recruited Michael Redd, I recruited Joe Johnson, I recruited Chris Bosh. I recruited a lot of guys. I just didn't win, and they didn't want to come to Cleveland. So, I guess me winning two championships, it helped out a lot."
