They go from having the best record in the league two years straight and led by a back-to-back MVP to a team with a new coach and having Antawn Jamison as their best player. That team will be lucky to win 40 games.

I remember reading a story about how the Cavs franchise nearly doubled in overall value (from roughly $300 to $600 million if I remember correctly) during the time LeBron James was a Cavalier. That value probably slipped right back to $300.

If they can't even keep LeBron, an Ohio native, who can they attract in the coming years? Chris Bosh already gave them a cold shoulder, and LeBron took far less money to head south.

That first home game for the Cleveland Cavaliers will be the most depressing NBA game ever.

Have some class man. They just lost their hometown franchise player and you're going to call out their franchise in the same night? This franchise will bounce back I really think they will. LeBron will regret leaving Cleveland and they will end up becoming a great team again.

They might as well pack up their bags and move to Seattle.

Question is will they start having a fire sale, shipping guys out for a rebuilding process?

lebron basically ripped off his pants and took a huge dump on the franchise. just sayin.

seriously, it will take years for them to get their roster up a playoff contender, let alone the status they achieved in the last 2 years. the contracts and lack of young talent is really gunna be a problem
