Lebron has no rings, so you act like he's the greatest of all time. And Cleveland didnt throw Dan Gilbert under the bus, Dan Gilbert did, but Brown did do some dumb things. Maybe we'll find someone who can win us a ring, obviously Lebron wasnt good enough.

And thanks for answering my questions, or not.


Nobody wants to come to Cleveland. Even your GM Danny Ferry bolted from town before the decision. Dan Gilbert is the problem, and until he sells the team, you guys wont be competitive or relevant to the NBA.

One has to question the motives of someone with no class, morals, or humility.

And I'm not talking about Lebron.

KT I agree with you on just about everything but the Kobe comment, there is no way Lebron is already better than Kobe. Not saying he can't, or won't but right now if the world ended. Kobe is a better player in the history of the NBA

Whats funny is last year you said Mike Brown wasn't good and he was one of the reasons Lebron and the Cavs kept having early exits in the playoffs despite having the best record in the league. Now you say he was wrongfully canned only because it makes your point better about the Cavs owner being a dick. I've never seen someone flip flop and make up stuff more than you. lol Lebron is not Ohio or Cleveland. Ohio is a football state. The Buckeyes mean way more to them than Lebron. The Browns and the Indians both mean way more to them than Lebron. It's kind of like us and the Hurricanes. I don't care about them and a ton of people around here didn't care about them but we all cheered like hell when they were in the finals just to have a pro team win one here but we would much rather have the Bobcats or Panthers win.

Nobody wants to come to Charlotte. Even Bernie Bickerstaff bolted from town before the decision. Bobcat Johnson is the problem, and until he sells the team, you guys wont be competitive or relevant to the NBA.


Truth.....?;)

Brown wasnt good and he was one of the reasons LeBron and the Cavs kept having early exits in the playoffs despite having the best record in the league. But no one screamed "loyalty" or "letting know in advance" then. It was business as usual. My point is that, I dont feel sorry for them because they did the same thing. Their owner was out tryna bring in Tom Izzo and lure him away from MSU all summer. Booted his GM out. This is business. Its not LeBron's fault he's not as good an exec as say a Pat Riley. Pat Riley isnt berating players publicly on ESPN. He's not giving emotional rants to incite racism and animosity towards his forward employees. He's alot classier than that. As for Cleveland, the fact they havent paid homage to LeBron and properly thanked him for the 7 years he gave them shows what kinda town they are. They would've never sniffed a Finals without him. You say its a football state, but damn man. What have the Browns done? The Bungles? The Indians? LeBron was everything to that state. Still is. They'll never get over him.

What, that he'll always be known as the founder of this venture and that you're one of his loyal customers? ;)

Conveniently left out the Buckeyes. Everyone of my friends and family were upset he left but were over it the next day. Lebron is not even close to everything in that state. Buckeyes football is what they all get up for. No one meets up to watch the Cavs. Even with Lebron we never talked Cavs. It's really not that important to them. You're going by the 3 redneck drunk guys, that the media went out searching for, burning that Lebron jersey. Im not sure where you get this info from but its wrong. Way wrong. Im sure some are really upset but its not in the numbers that you're talking about.

Man KT people love to gang up on you.

I have a question for all and any of you.... What do players of any sport owe fans/cities???

I understand that my views might not be the same as others but, I dont look for anything more than what the players are willing to give up. On or off the court.

I have never once heard LeBron say that he wanted to be the best player ever. I have heard ESPN, talk radio and people on here say that.

I have never heard Lebron refer to himself The King/Chosen one. I have heard ESPN, talk radio and people on here say that.

I have never heard LeBron say that he was better than Jordan/Kobe.. I have heard ESPN, talk radio and people on here say that.

I dont know what the big deal is with you people. He is just doing what he wants to do and I dont see the problem with anything that Bron did.

Cleveland didnt give Lebron a supporting cast so LeBron found his own in Miami. I dont see the problem here.

I agree with, but I think you are phrasing it wrong. I think the Media has turned Lebron into this polarizing figure, similar to The Golden Calf of Bristol. However, he did tattoo chosen on his back and refers to himself as kingjames on twitter. Now do I personally blame him for this? No, any other human being would have done the same thing had they received this much attention in their life since high school, and had such a successful career up to this point.

I also don't think most people have a problem with him leaving Cleveland it was just the manner he did it in. We as Americans love our superstars, because we want to be like them. We don't want them for the most part to be selfish because that is an aspect of our life we detest, and thus don't want our heroes to exemplify this characteristic. We demand them to be superhuman, because we view them as that. Once again, I think Lebron got bad advice on the "decision", and if he had to do it again I guarantee he would have done it differently. He is not a mean person, like some people make him out to be. He is just slightly misguided. And who wouldn't be had they had the same life as Lebron has had

like its been said in this thread, Cleveland just wanted a heads up, and instead of using so much time on Lebron, maybe they couldve pursued other players in free agency last year.

Also, in regards to Lebron right now compared to Kobe, you can't really compare the two because they're two different players. Kobe's more flashy and more of a step back, cross you over, pull the fade-away. Lebrons a power, drive it down the throat of the defense, slam it home, type guy. While they are very similar, you can't compare them and say which is better. Do I LIKE Kobe more? Sure, hes a play style I enjoy to watch. But thats not saying Lebron isn't a hell of a basketball player and athlete.

Wasn't Lebron given Jamison last year? What happened to that?
