On the day when LeBron James finally admitted to regretting "The Decision" and when his Miami Heat punished the New Jersey Nets at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, a meeting of two great athletes -- both highly respected in their sports -- occurrred.
Thierry Henry, French striker for the New York Red Bulls, and LeBron met after the game to talk basketball and soccer.
Thierry stayed home with a knee injury while the Red Bulls played the San Jose Earthquakes. He's also trying to get ready for the second leg of the home-and-home series, which will resume at Red Bulls Arena in Harrison, NJ.
LeBron, who finally talked about his infamous "The Decision," said the following to ESPN.com: "If I had to go back on it, I probably would do it a little bit different. But I'm happy with the decision I made. There's always going to be a misunderstanding. I don't know what I would [have done], but I definitely would have changed it."
The two met after the game and snapped a shot (see above).
