There is a sentiment that Lebron is letting cleveland down if he leaves. Id like to know what family in cleveland fed, clothed and sheltered this man when he was homeless. or if the cavs gave him a shot when no one else would.

Because it seems to me, cleveland got lucky in the draft (most teams with the worst record dont get the first pick) and got the hometown guy. now he wants to leave. simple. he doesnt like the organization and lets face it, who ever founded the city didnt pick the best spot on the map.

So why does he owe anyone? because they went to the game and bought his jersey?

Lebron gets loved and hated on too much. And because of that, most can't see it for what it is.

And all this talk about the economy revolving around him is a little sad. Really? so if cleveland doesnt land james in 03, theyd have been screwed? i mean one person? thats all you have to offer?
Ive been hearing OSU fans talk crap for years on how great ohio is, and no one can produce anything of value other than lebron? it cant be that lame.

And more importantly, the fans who watched him play in AAU, then in high school and then paid to see him play for his hometown team, would be devastated and the team would be in ruins for years.

Well lets see, starters they gave him an education through High School. I know he oviously has God given talent, but don't tell me a coach or teacher along the way didn't teach him something or give him good advice. He got the chance to and did make alot of money. Yes he could have done it any where but he did it there. He was drated out og High School, people being watching him for a long time, local must have alerted the rest of the country to him through there coverage.

I dont live there but I bet his treated like everybody's best freind every where he goes. Yes Cleveland got lucky and got the first pick, but who was more lucky the first pick that year was him or Cleveland. Kobe was drafted out of high school also, he has said the worest thing about being drafted out of High School was being alone. He had no extended family or friends near him. He was 18 and had nothing in common with his teammates. Most that weren't married and had no kids would go to bars and other places he couldn't go when thet had days off. The older players where married with kids and didn't have time to hang out with an 18 year old. He really hated the road because he would sit in hotel room playing Nintendo while the team hit the bars. Kobe has said it has made it hard for him to make life long male friends, and he has few. He complained because the media he also was more isolated at a time when people his age where learning to deal with poeple in th real world. LeBron got to live very close to where he grew up and avoid alot of lonelyness. Cleveland would just get a big 7 year tease out of winning the lottery, LeBron got a stable home life at 18, who really was the luckest here and the Cavs did everything they could for him to have that.

He don't have to sign there but he does owe them.

He doesn't owe them anything at all. There is a reason Cle sucks. Look at the contracts they have. Their team is more than twice as valuable than it was before he got there and they surrounded him with a terrible coach and bad management.

The 2 best options are Chi and Heat.. But if I were Lebron I'd play in the d league before I played with that d****bag, backstabbing Boozer lol I say that and I'm not even a Cle fan.

Heatcheck
07-08-2010, 06:03 PM
first off, the city of cleveland didnt give him an education, thats the just the system, it happends with kids all over the country, whether they become pro athletes or not.

second, everything u named, watching him on tv, buying shoes going to games, u did that out of ENJOYMENT, he was representing your city and state, dont act like cleveland sacrificed hours in front of the tv and dollars on games and jerseys to see him succeed. they helped each other. He played and represented the city of cleveland and was great, so everybody rooted for him and he was compensated. THATS IT.

Now he doesnt have to be there and he wants to leave.

stawka
07-08-2010, 06:08 PM
He owes nothing to the whole of the NBA for that matter, BUT it would e in his best interest to remain a Cav. 2 titles as THE man on the Cavs, is better than 4 titles on someone elses team.

Ask Kobe if his last 2 titles are better than his first 3. Legacy is what counts, and that's what he deserves. He could be in the top 3 players of all time, but this could really hurt

07-08-2010, 06:10 PM
The Cavs have played in a finals, and just came off of back to back 60 win seasons, and yet they always fall short in the playoffs. Hmmmm....I wonder what the problem was. Was it talent, or simple coaching? They've had a lot of success but come up just short. So if he leaves Cleveland now after they just got a hell of a coach in Byron Scott, with the opportunity to target a couple more of his buddies in a year, then YES.....he's a pure dildo. This would not be like KG leaving Minnesota or Bosh leaving Toronto. It would be a whole new type of deal. The opportunity for him to achieve his goal of being THE guy in his hometown and winning a ring is right here in front of him. They just got a REAL coach, not some 2nd rate scrub who couldn't make big game coaching decisions to save his life. And guys like Chris Paul and maybe even Carmelo will more than likely be available in another year. The choice is his, but if he skips out now, he'll lose major credibility and hurt his image/reputation. Is it fair? Maybe, maybe not. But it's still the way it's gonna be. I hope he makes the RIGHT decision.

07-08-2010, 06:10 PM
You would think he would have a little more loyalty. This is a guy who has 330 tattooed on his arm. That is Akron's area code. And while Akron may not be Cleveland, it is still Cavs country. So I don't know how I would feel about a guy who felt so strongly about his hometown that he put it permanently on his body, only to turn his back on them.

loyalty? instead of jumping on lebron, why not seek out the owner, the GM, who surrounded him with steaming piles of doo doo, and just because lebron can turn ordinary players into all stars it doesnt mean he likes carrying their ***. IMO Ferry and Co should have said **** the cap and went for it, instead of overspending on varajao and deceiving yourself mo williams is an elite PG, actually sought out elite level talent. maybe today wouldnt be so somber in cleveland. lebron brought that city back to the front pages, what the hell was going on prior? IMHO cleveland brass is dumb as doornails for not seeking out and participating in a sign and trade. think about the offers for the games best (arguably) player. sad situation and i feel for the fans, but its a give and take relationship, if lebron would have been hurt, or stinking up the joint im sure those fans would be just as quick to crucify him.

Plus I like Wade, Lebron, and Bosh too much to hate, especially Wade.

he filled the stand for SEVEN SEASONSSS. do you UNDERSTAND how much revenue that is?

I agree completely!!! The organization owes Lebron more than he owes them. (I don't have the numbers, but everyone knows the value of the franchise has skyrocketed since he's been playing there). I've never really been a real fan of his, but during his time with the Cavs he gave the team everything he had. What came out of it? A couple MVP's and nothing else. With all the hype he had coming out of high school (not to mention his talent, lol) the endorsements would have come no matter where he was playing. What he wants is a championship, and this summer he has the chance/right to choose where he wants to play to have the best shot at that goal. As a Heat fan I obviously hope that he signs with Miami, but honestly I still feel like he'll stay in Cleveland. And not because he owes them anything.

edit: Just to clarify, I completely disagree with the way he's handled this free agency, especially if he leaves.

Personally if LeBron comes to Miami, people can hate all they want. For once I can sit out on the hating and just bask in the glory of the Miami Thrice.

And I kind of agree with Sixerlover's "Bron will have a KG-esque change" theory.

I'm not sure it would be as unfair as people think. LeBron is unarguably the best small forward in the league, but also hasn't won **** to show for it. I think Durant will be as good if not better than him in a few years. Kobe IMO is still better than Wade, and Wade is injury-prone and deep into his prime. Bosh is a top 5 PF who will be a great complimentary player, like a Gasol.

Does everybody hate the Lakers for having the stacked team they have? Chicago would be pretty stacked too you know, so would everybody suddenly hate Chicago as well? You know you should unless you are a hypocrit.

It appears PSD is just full of pityfull jealous crybabies who have to feed of hating on something associated with "popular & succesful" in order to get by during the day. It is really pretty fething sad :pity:

Question doesn't make much sense.
If anything, I'd say LeBron doesn't 'deserve' the fans he has.
When homeless men stand outside of the arena holding up 'We love LeBron' signs, and he is too blind to see what he has right there in Cleveland, then forget it. My respect for that man is gone. Not all of it; but most. They WORSHIP him for God's sake. It's all whatever; I was never a fan of the guy anyway. I think a few people try to stick up for him, but time and time again, he shows us why we shouldn't. Get ready for his hour long TV-show on where he's going! Should be a boat-load of LeBron promoting to say the least!

If he ends up in Chicago I dont think Chi Town would be hated cuz Noah is a fan favorite and tells it how it is, Rose is humble as they come him and Durant are the same type of person and besides Lebron there isnt that much EGO on the Bulls team as the Heat. Rose and Noah arent no Wade and Bosh and Boozer is a nice guy as well all the spotlight would be on Lebron in Chicago.

Rose and Noah arent no Wade and Bosh and Boozer is a nice guy as well all the spotlight would be on Lebron in Chicago.

Well one thing is for sure, they could all say goodbye to their endorsements. What non-local company would want to invest in their image if they are some of the most hated athletes.

For me, it would ruin the NBA. I would watch my Cavs still, but I would not watch a game if they were not in it. I definately would not watch any Heat games. That being said I would have two favorites teams from then on, the Cavs and whoever the Heat play that night.

Of course they'll be hated. But I think somehow Wade will turn out like Ray Allen in the sense that people will still greatly admire and like him. Bron will have a KG-esque change. People loved KG in Minny, and HATED him in Boston.

Agreed, people will always love Wade.

Because Wade & Bosh are not humble, but rose & Noah are. Are you kidding me :confused:

If it does happen tonight, then in terms of just the eastern conference I still think the competition between the Heat, Celtics, Magic, and Bulls would be intense.

And if you add in the western conference then I think there is still good competition with the Lakers, Nuggets, Thunder, and Mavericks.

(note: I'm just thinking on the fly so I might even forget some teams in either conference.)


But how is this so different than what the Celtics did when they retained Pierce (keeping Wade) and then adding Garnett and Allen (Bosh and James).
They stacked their team in one offseason, just as the Heat would be this season.

A lot of people are hating on Amare as well. Out of the group of players mentioned here Lebron apparently is the most hated hands down, but judging by what I have been reading @ PSD these past years Amare definitely is second.

I rarely see any Bosh hate, and Wade has gotten some be cause he actually accomplished something certain people are jealous about. Melo would be in the same boat if he was on one of the teams with large fan bases instead of the insignificant Nuggets franchise.

Fact remains that you implicate that Lebron & Rose & Noah don't deserve hate, but that Miami with Lebron & Wade & Bosh do, so if we keep Lebron out of this that means that Wade and Bosh deserve more hate than Rose and Noah.

So I ask again why that is so, according to you? Why does anybody necessarily have to deserve hate in the first place. It just shows a certain way of thinking to always be focussed on finding something or someone who has to be hated. If nobody is being hated upon, then what is there left for us to do on the internet huh :rolleyes:

Most of the comments I have read from Raptors fans about Bosh are very classy btw, they don't seem to hate him at all.

And you people need to stop with the little remarks about Miami fans. The fans you are talking to here are the fans who are always there, so what exactly is wrong with them?

first off, the city of cleveland didnt give him an education, thats the just the system, it happends with kids all over the country, whether they become pro athletes or not.

second, everything u named, watching him on tv, buying shoes going to games, u did that out of ENJOYMENT, he was representing your city and state, dont act like cleveland sacrificed hours in front of the tv and dollars on games and jerseys to see him succeed. they helped each other. He played and represented the city of cleveland and was great, so everybody rooted for him and he was compensated. THATS IT.

Now he doesnt have to be there and he wants to leave.

Yes the city did give him an Educstion son, System or not. He did not pay for it many people with out kids pay tax for him.Plus there is much more to it the books, not to degrade you but I can tell by your comment you are younger.

That community protected and allowed him to become himself, most people in his shoes don't get to do that. Watching tv buying jersey's helped each other out thats it, not even close man. I'm a Bulls fan anyway, I want him on Bulls. But question was does he owe Clev, and yes he does. If he leaves Clev hope he keeps up the same level of Charity involvment there. That is where he truely owes them.

All this talk that he will never be considered one of the greats if he does go to Miami is even more bull. If that Heat team go on to win like 4-6 championships in a row they would be considered one of the best teams ever and who do you think would be there to bask in all the glory?

Because it seems to me, cleveland got lucky in the draft (most teams with the worst record dont get the first pick) and got the hometown guy. Now he wants to leave. Simple. He doesnt like the organization and lets face it, who ever founded the city didnt pick the best spot on the map.

So why does he owe anyone? Because they went to the game and bought his jersey?

If Lebron signs with the Miami Heat tonight, he cements his status as the ultimate villain.

By leaving Cleveland, he instantly crushes the heart of an entire city and state. They have nothing else to rally around. Sure, they will eventually recover, but things will never be the same.

Itís like Lebron is leaving his loyal wife of seven years for some hot girl he met in Miami Beach. It seems like a tempting idea at this time, but what he doesnít realize is that his actions would certainly devastate the spirits of those who unconditionally stuck by him for so long.

Besides the effect on Cleveland, Lebron himself would surely come to regret his decision down the road. Sure, heíll have fun fooling around in Miami, but it will never be as meaningful as his time playing in Cleveland. Wouldnít a championship in Cleveland be the ultimate victory for Lebron? Compare that to a championship in Miami, one which is pre-programmed to occur.

If Lebron were to leave Cleveland for New York, perhaps that would be the lesser of two evils. It wonít cure Clevelandís heart break, but it would at least resuscitate New York basketball from a 10 year coma. The problem is New York falls in between the forces of self-control and temptation. If Lebron is loyal, he stays in Cleveland, if he falls to temptation, he will fall all the way to Miami.

Why Miami? Lebron would be joining Wade and Bosh in Vegas if they had a team. Miami is a city of excess: crazy parties, excessive luxuries, exotic women, etc; the opposite of Cleveland, NY falls somewhere in between. (Donít think Lebron isnít tempted.) Miami already has Wade and Bosh. They certainly donít need Lebron. They want Lebron. They donít care if it ruins the competitive nature of the game.

In a world where a role model and champion like Tiger Woods can be tempted to cheat on his loyal wife, all but destroying his legacy in the process, expect no different from Lebron. He's an egomaniac. Why else would he agree to hold a special event for the culmination of his free agency? That tells you automatically that he's leaving Cleveland. (Did Kevin Durant hold a special event to announce his resigning with OKC?)

Of course Lebron will try to control the damage by delivering his speech at the Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich, CT. But look at the message he's delivering to these kids! Forget about loyalty! Pursue temptation!

But I honestly don't expect any level of success from the Miami Threesome. Look at all the athletes who left their wives or left their loyal homes and eventually lost their success. Being with your friends in the city of Miami will ultimately serve as a distraction from the game for Lebron.

So for all those Cavaliers and Knicks fans that will undoubtedly be let down this evening, take comfort in knowing that in choosing Miami, Lebron reveals himself to be the ultimate villain.

The forces of good will rally. And in the end, evil will be defeated.

I wouldn't look at Miami as the enemy, unless the three got arrogant, and annoying. I would pull for them over the Lakers for instance, but I think just adding those three, and then trying to fill out the roster with the lockout looming will be harder than most people think it will be.

Really? I selected no because they have too much to prove. This does not guarantee an NBA Championship at ALL! Who's coming off the bench? Who is their center? How much can they add with less than 2 million in cap space? Celts had the Big 3 along with role players and 2 other players to fill in the starting 5. I just don't see how amazing some people might believe this is. I see 3 players, who are the other 9 players?

And this is a problem because....? :rolleyes: (also ur post kinda sounds like a televangelist...)

Lol. I'm not a televangelist. I do believe in God. But I'm not religious.

Also, if you don't realize the problem here, I feel bad for you.

But I'll give you a review:

People will hate them, just as they do with the NYY in MLB.

If QUEEN JAMES goes to Miami the pressure to win a title will ruin all of those superstars if they dont win. His legacy will be dead. I really want him to go to MIAMI and not win a title then we would all know that he will never be the greatest player of all time or even of this time!

If anyone owes anyone, Ohio owes LeBronze, ahem, I mean Lebron. Some people on here act like he wouldn't have flourished on another team. Big up to LeBronze if he leaves the Cavs. And I'm sorry but I feel like LeBronze f'ed himself out of championships. That young man should not be taking as many long jumpers as he did. And the fact that he started and finished every play on offense is unnecessary. It's all about team work, ask Kobe or Pierce how they won their recent championships... Good D and teamwork... NOT shooting 40 ft jumpers
