LeBron James sat down for a rare interview with CNN this week, where he discussed his return to Cleveland, reconciling with Cavs owner Dan Gilbert, and losing in the off-season.

Below are quotes from the interview:

On his return: "I had dreams of going back home, but I thought it was happen a lot later on in my career. Going back, having a couple more years left in my career, and kinda finishing it off that way. But, I didn't think it would happen this soon."

On talk with Dan Gilbert: It was a straight-forward conversation, no beating around the bush. He basically said, "No matter what decision you make, we wanted to clear the air to where we can-- if we see each other in public, we can always shake each other's hand and look at the fun times we had in Cleveland when we were together."

On his diet: I lost a few pounds. I haven't been in this weight class (laughs). I'm in the 250-ish range, a lot lighter than I've been playing at for the last few years. I feel good. 67 days. I'll tell ya what I couldn't have: no carbs, no sugar, no diary, no refined sugar... no nothing. Meat, fish, veggies, fruit -- that's it.
