Brown: "LeBron has given me a lot of respect, and it hasn't gone by my ears and eyes. This young man has recognized me as a part of that family, and I'm so happy to go back and show my respect and to enjoy this and show how much we appreciate it and to wave to those fans."

Brown: "In the end, it's great to win this way. (Cleveland fans) could've easily given up and got on a criticism binge. But they stayed with the team and they stayed with the Browns and they've been rewarded. I think it's a great day for Cleveland. It's a great day for me."
