Nah he wasn't going anywhere with Cleveland
For the first time in my life -- I felt fear. And I was blinded by its brilliance. I believed fear to be a part of the chaos I abhor, but it was more controlling than all the willpower in the universe. And it would be mine.
Lebron being locked down by JJ barea and kid is ok tho? The dude choked, it was a horrible choke job. I hate it just as much as you probably do but im not going to blame wade for it. And stop calling him king james, it makes it har to take your posts seriously.
Depends if he could get a Bosh to his team.
Lebron was more comfortable in Cleveland because
1) He got all the credit for dragging inferior teams further than they should have gone and
2) He got no blame when they ultimately lost because his teams were not expected to win.
No lose situation.
Now, in Miami it's the exact opposite. Winning 55 games in the regular season won't cut it. The Heat are expected to win. There's a difference between being expected to lose (and excused when it happens) than it is to be expected to win (NO excuses). Whole different kind of pressure.
Statistically speaking, Lebron's having a career year. His team should be in 1st place. If he was in Cleveland right now, he'd be the toast of the league. "Too bad Lebron doesn't have the right cast or he'd win 8 titles straight!". Now all everyone cares about is how he does in the Finals. He has a contending team. No excuses. The Finals. That's the only thing that matters. He couldn't handle it last year. This year, the jury's still out.

Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.
In the very beginning when the entire city of Cleveland blew up, I thought he might of had second guesses. This until he realized he's much happier playing in Miami with even more media attention and many more chances at reaching more then one championship.
na hes having a blast in sobe lol.. there gonna get a ring just not alot of them like people thought maybe 1 or 2
Thanks 2 knicksr4real for holdn nycsports down with the hottest sig on psd!!!
No. Cleveland was never getting over the hump. The only reason he gets so much backlash is the WAY he left not that he left.
Well, I wouldn't have stayed in Cleveland if I were him. They were just running a piss-poor franchise, and I can't blame him for wanting to be competitive and win a championship. I don't think the way he left/the reason he went to Miami was right, and I'm sure he'd re-do it all if he had the chance.
Nice name for a thread title....troll
