Cleveland, OH (92.3 The Fan) – Aside from Dan Gilbert's thank you letter to LeBron James late Sunday night, there hasn't been much public reaction from current Cavaliers players about James' decision after James agreed to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Cedi Osman broke that silcence with a heartfelt message Monday posted on his verified instagram account.

The picture he posted was of James leaping into Osmond's arms after hitting the game-winner against Indiana in Game 5 of the quarterfinals with the caption: 

"Some people bring out the worst in you, others bring out the best. And there are remarkably rare ones, who just bring out the most of everything that even you don't know that you have. They build you up. They make you feel alive. They make you feel strong. They make you feel indisputable. From the first moment we met, you’ve always been that rare one for me, King. I don’t believe in coincidences. I choose to believe my path crossed with you for a reason. And that reason will be uncovered as I continue to walk through. Please accept my highest gratitude for your support and appreciation for your inspiration. I’m truly blessed to have been surrounded by your charm."

Bazı insanlar doğanızdaki kötü tarafları ortaya çıkarır; bazıları ise içinizdeki iyiyi katlayarak yansıtmanızı sağlar. Ama bazı özel insanlar vardır ki, onların sayısı çok azdır, sahip olduğunuzun farkında bile olmadığınız yönlerinizi parlatmanızı sağlar. Sizi geliştirir, yaşadığınızı hissettirir ve güçlü olduğunuzu hatırlatır. Kral, ilk buluşmamızdan itibaren benim için eşsiz biri oldun. Biliyorum ve inaniyorum ki seninle yolumuz özel bir nedenle kesişti. Bu özel neden, hayatım boyunca benimle olmaya devam edecek. Verdiğin tüm destek için sana kalpten teşekkür ediyorum. Seninle geçirdiğim her dakika için minnetarım. Yolun açık olsun...

As a rookie, Osman averaged 3.9 points, 2.0 rebounds and 0.7 assists in 11.0 minutes but he can expect a bigger role with James now a Laker come next season.
