NBC'S "PEOPLE OF THE YEAR" WITH MATT LAUER TO AIR ON THURSDAY, NOV. 25 AT 9PM

FROM HOT-BUTTON ISSUES TO THE HOTTEST CELEBRITIES, MATT LAUER SITS DOWN WITH SOME OF THE MOST TALKED ABOUT PEOPLE OF 2010 FOR HIS THANKSGIVING "PEOPLE OF THE YEAR" PRIMETIME SPECIAL ON THURSDAY, NOV. 25 AT 9PM/ET

(NEW YORK) - November 19, 2010 - With the new year just weeks away, NBC takes a look at what made 2010 a year filled with world-wide inspiration and outrage, and how the glory of celebrity reached new heights with reality star sensations. Chilean Miner rescuer Brandon Fisher, "Hero Dad" James Jones, Mosque developer Sharif el-Gamal, LeBron James, Kim Kardashian, and Justin Timberlake all sit down with Matt Lauer for his annual Thanksgiving primetime special, "People of the Year" on Thursday, Nov. 25 at 9PM/ET, and speak out candidly about why this was their year. In addition, the special includes a special holiday tribute performance by singing sensation, Susan Boyle.

Below are excerpts from Lauer's interview with LeBron James. If used, please note the mandatory credit: "In an interview airing November 25 on NBC's 'People of the Year' at 9 PM/ET."

RE: Not telling the Cleveland Cavaliers his decision before his infamous ESPN special:

LAUER: ...And the decision not to tell the Cleveland Cavaliers before you made the public decision?

LEBRON: I think maybe that coulda been handled a little bit different //I never regret anything I do //but when you look back on things, you could say "Well, maybe you change this or change that."

***

RE: The messaging in his new Nike commercial:

LAUER: Should I be who YOU want me to be? That's the message here. I mean when it comes right down to it, that's the question you're asking people. And the answer you're giving is "No."

LEBRON: You can't live your life on someone else's path. Just can't do it. You never accomplish what you wanna accomplish in life.

LAUER: The other line in there that jumps out at me LeBron is "Should I believe that I've ruined my legacy?" Do you think you've damaged your legacy at all?

LeBron: Well, that's pending. I got a lot of time

David Corvo is the executive producer of "People of the Year."
