If LeBron does in fact leave Cleveland this season for a bigger market, what will be the reaction of the Cavaliers fans toward LeBron? Do you think they will resent him forever for leaving the city, or still love him because he is their "native son" and best player already in franchise history.

Hard to tell, really, but it's definitely an interesting question. It will be a really rough hit IMO, though, because I just can't imagine the Cavs without him. I mean, they won't even be close to competitive, I'd think. Take LeBron out of the equation... (well this is assuming no FA moves are made:)

Without Lebron, they are not better than the bulls, who were the 8th seed. So I doubt they are a playoff team.

And Shaq will not be on that team if LBJ doesn't return, and I'm sure Z will be done as well. All they will be left with is Mo, Moon, Parker, Varejo, Jameson, Hickson and about 11-14 million in cap space if they don't exercise West's 4.5 mil option. 7-10 in cap space if they do bring back West. Plus a very late 1st and 2nd rounder.

The ''bigger market'' would have nothing to do with it. Something called a cap.

People need to understand some things.

1. If Lebron goes to NY and sells 35billion jerseys he will not get that money.

2. His Nike Contract does not offer more money if he's in a bigger market.

3. Cleveland can pay him the most.

Its just hard to find a reason for him to leave. He owns NY, yet lives near his home city. He has the cake and eating it to you know.

Its funny, Lebron can really go to any team in the league he wants via sign and trade, regardless of cap space.

Obviously he can sign with the teams with the cap space, but say he wants to go elsewhere, all he has to do is tell cleveland, if you don't want me to simply walk with you getting nothing, sign and trade me to ......, otherwise I walk and you get nothing. And obviously the team he would go to would be losing quite a bit, but he could still make sure he goes to that team.

It is not just about the jerseys and his Nike contract... If he does go to NY, he will get more endorsement deals... That is also the reason why Ricky Rubio wants to play for a bigger city and Shaq bolted to LA...

So what you're saying is that RIGHT NOW, while LBJ is in cleveland, if he wanted an endorsement deal for certain companies, they would deny him because he is in Cleveland?

You have to understand, he could live in Anchorage, AK, and still get any endorsement deal he wants. It's his personal choice what deals he gets, not based on where he lives and plays.

Ricky Rubio is 1/100000th of what LBJ is, he needs those endorsement deals.

Magic had L.A. Mike had Chicago. Wilt and Shaq left for L.A. By staying in Cleveland he's hurting the League. Everyone Knows the NBA is better when the big Markets are contenders. The market will dictate what happens. Cleveland should be happy they wasted 7 of his seasons so far. 7 years and they're just now getting a decent team to surround him. Meanwhile the Knicks Nets and Bulls cleared cap space or built a decent team in 2years.

Shaq bolting to LA... You're just trying to be a wise ***... I know you get my point... It not just about going to clubs man!

You didn't make any mention of Shaq to LA in your previous post, so how was I supposed to know you meant LA. Seriously, go re-read it, and tell me how I'm being a wise-***.

And No, I truly don't get your point, unless your point is that Lebron can make a billion dollars by doing little things, meeting people, and that he doesn't care about basketball anymore.

His points is
Max Contract
Normal Endorsement deals
+minor nyc deals
+NYC connections surrounding him for long term money deals
= possible Billionaire

Honestly, point is, even if cleveland could offer him 50 mil more than anyone else, he'd make all that money before next years all star game in new york. So what if Nike wont give him more(which they probably will anyway) he'd get a **** load of major endorsement just for being in the big apple, he would be able to start his own clothing line, dont say he can do that in cleveland, nobody wants to buy those ugly *** L23 gym shirts with the crown on top, way ugly. being in New York opens opportunities for regular people, so imagine someone of Lebrons stature coming here. He'd be a mega star, right now he's the top name in b ball, which is fine and dandy, but if he really wants some true spotlight, and hopes to fulfill those millionaire dreams, he'll be in New York.

http://money.cnn.com/2007/11/28/news/newsmakers/lebron_james.fortune/index.htm

Lebron James owns a marketing agency based in Cleveland. Right now, his main clients are himself, John Wall and Ted Ginn Jr. If Lebron truly wants to be a billionaire, he needs to 1) win multiple NBA championships and 2) acquire more clients. In a bigger market such as New York, accomplishing his dream would be more feasible. If he could start a branch in New York City, I believe he would be able to acquire top entertainers as well as sports stars. Why? Because marketing agencies for top sports talents and entertainers in New York is a very competitive market. Also on the last page, it says 35 million people watched Jordan's last game while the most that ever watched Lebron James is 9 million. If he goes to a bigger, he would therefore be increasing the number of viewers, which means he is increasing his exposure. In Cleveland, he has not been able to attract the fair-weather fan in other cities like Houston, Los Angeles and even New York. If Lebron wants to be a world renowned athlete and a billionaire, I do not think think its feasible in the city of Cleveland. His roster is filled with roles and his two complementary stars are past their prime. They simply do not have the roster nor salary cap space currently to sustain their success. Other teams such as the Knicks could pair Lebron with a superstar and surround him with young talent. In some of these situations, it may take a year to for these rosters to reach their capabilities, but in 2 years these teams could guarantee Lebron with the best roster for the long haul, which Cleveland cannot simply guarantee. Therefore, it would only increase his popularity, exposure and NBA viewers, which means more money for Lebron.

1-Already a global icon, He can't make more in NYC regardless of what people say

2-He's a very loyal guy, this is very evident in his documentary.

3-He wants to be the guy that ends the drought of no titles in Cleveland...not to mention most of the NBAs greats stayed put for the most part.

No. Shaq's 20 million comes off the books at the end of this season. And if James leaves that means that's another what would have been max contract off the books.

I could be wrong, if James leaves Cleveland can offer two massive contracts, no? If you add two massive contracts to a team with Mo and Jamison-recent allstars, and a decent bench they are still a power in the east.

He aint going nowhere sorry. This is the best supporting cast around him that he has had so he cant complain there. Upper management really does make a move when they have to. We can offer him more money than anyone, and his Nike deal he just signed is a set amount wherever he plays. It sounds to me like this is a winning situation.

So Knicks fans yall can get Bosh or somebody else and stop photo shopping pics of Lebron in NY uniforms. Yall look desperate. Just watch the playoffs and enjoy history

Just because they have 2 massive contracts coming off the books doesn't mean they can offer 2 other max contracts. They are over the cap, next year without LBJ, they still have over 40 million committed, plus a 4.5 team option on west. If they pick that up, they are looking at around 8-12 in cap space, so not enough to offer a max to anyone.

If LeBron does in fact leave Cleveland this season for a bigger market, what will be the reaction of the Cavaliers fans toward LeBron? Do you think they will resent him forever for leaving the city, or still love him because he is their "native son" and best player already in franchise history.

The Cleveland fans will applaud him, no matter what, as long as he doesn't crap on his former team when/if he leaves.

The LeBron fans will just follow him wherever he goes.

Yes, I make a distinction between LeBron fans and Cleveland fans. They're not one and the same.

i hope lebron stays,
its one thing to sell out the city that drafted you, its another to sell out the city that raised you..

plus he has a good thing going now in clevland why leave a sure thing for somthing that is unknown. whos to say he goes to jersey or new york and they are contenders ? it takes the right players, coaches, team chemistry to be a contender... it took the cavs seven years to build the right team, whos to say it wont be another seven when he goes on to a rebuilding team.

Stupid question. Of course most of them will not take it easy and it would be like betraying the whole city. He would hated and all of his contributions will be forgotten to most people for this hate. At least I would have done the same thing and to be honest you can't blame them if they react that way.

Lebron James owns a marketing agency based in Cleveland. Right now, his main clients are himself, John Wall and Ted Ginn Jr. If Lebron truly wants to be a billionaire, he needs to 1) win multiple NBA championships and 2) acquire more clients. In a bigger market such as New York, accomplishing his dream would be more feasible. If he could start a branch in New York City, I believe he would be able to acquire top entertainers as well as sports stars. Why? Because marketing agencies for top sports talents and entertainers in New York is a very competitive market. Also on the last page, it says 35 million people watched Jordan's last game while the most that ever watched Lebron James is 9 million. If he goes to a bigger, he would therefore be increasing the number of viewers, which means he is increasing his exposure. In Cleveland, he has not been able to attract the fair-weather fan in other cities like Houston, Los Angeles and even New York. If Lebron wants to be a world renowned athlete and a billionaire, I do not think think its feasible in the city of Cleveland. His roster is filled with roles and his two complementary stars are past their prime. They simply do not have the roster nor salary cap space currently to sustain their success. Other teams such as the Knicks could pair Lebron with a superstar and surround him with young talent. In some of these situations, it may take a year to for these rosters to reach their capabilities, but in 2 years these teams could guarantee Lebron with the best roster for the long haul, which Cleveland cannot simply guarantee. Therefore, it would only increase his popularity, exposure and NBA viewers, which means more money for Lebron.

Words cant describe how sick i am of you. You come into our forum and talk about how Lebron should go to the knicks, then later after listening to us cavs fans chew you up and spit you out you said I dont think Lebron is coming to the knicks. Now your spreading your brain wash again. 35 million people watched Jordans last game because it was JORDANS LAST GAME. only 9 million people have watched Lebron because they can watch him whenever they want in the next 7-9 years. Once again the Cavs front office has shown it can surround Lebron with the players he needs, there are young guys on his team who can play, Mo williams is a sidekick who isnt past his prime, Jamison's contract will be expriring next year and who knows what he will do with that. Plus there are on National T.V. all the time, we get exposure. And of course Lebron's marketing agency isnt big yet, it has been around for 4-5 years, no company is HUGE by then, a business takes time to grow. Nike started in the trunk of a car and is in Oregon, not New York, not every company needs new york to survive. Businesses are in fact dying off left and right in New York because of your guy's taxes. Trump even insults New York publicly. New york isnt that great the city its argueably struggling more than ever. Lebron was born here his family is here, his history is here, hes not leaving, and he doesn't need the Knicks.
