Everybody changes when they get money. It’s a fact. Everybody changes when you get older, get a job, change a job and build a family. It’s also a fact. The issue with change isn’t that people change but the people you leave behind don’t often like the fact that once you experienced success in life you aren’t acting like the same person without that experience.  These are often the bitter failures in life that are jealous of people they once associated with.

LeBron talked to CNN about changing for the better and the mentality of those people who don’t want to see people change and succeed in life.

“In the black community, we would rather see people stay at the same bottomless level they are, than see someone grow apart. We would rather stay together and both struggle, then one of us making it and us being happy for that person who made it.”

It’s a topic that plays a big part in the TV show he’s producing called “Survivor’s Remorse.”

Here’s more from the interview, with LeBron discussing racism and domestic violence.
