How fast you think he would have been demonized in ohio? i dont think he could have walked around in that state freely...gilbert would have told the media quick i think it would have been worse than it is now.

You think it would have been worse? Interesting... I actually think it would have been better for Lebron... It would have given Cleveland a chance to get something in return for him. He probably still would have had "The Decision" but without Cleveland obviously.

A lot of the resentment toward Lebron was the way he seemed to pull the Cavs along by a string and kind of held them hostage when he was never going to stay in the first place. If he had let Gilbert know that he wasn't happy in Cleveland anymore, or that he wanted to move on respectfully, I think there would have been a lot less hate/drama that came out of this. I don't believe for a second that Lebron was considering staying in Cleveland once he became a FA. He was never gonna stay, but he didn't want to tell the Cavs, or he didn't know how. He probably should have in my opinion.

:facepalm: They did do a sign and trade. And no free agent's wanted to go to Cleveland regardless. Dan Gilbert is an idiot if he truly thought LeBron was coming back. If he was, the extension would have been signed. Once he became a FA that was it. Cleveland's only chance was if they were the only team in the picture. Once you throw 29 other cities into the mix, 27 of which are better than Cleveland (only Salt Lake City and OKC are worse), the Cavs had no chance. Gilbert should have seen the writing on the wall when LeBron repeatedly refused to commit to them. Anyone who was surprised he left Cleveland is an idiot. Sorry.

I think the thing that made Lebron James leave was that 2nd round playoff loss. He obviously gave up on his team and took his jersey off. However, up until that point, the guy gave it his all to win a championship in Cleveland.

Cavs couldnt have done anything after the playoff loss cause with the season over, Lebron James is a free agent and you cannot work a trade (even a draft-day trade) if you're a free agent.
