Long Lost Lebron

Ebay is showing record sales for #6 Miami Heat jersies. Meanwhile dumpsters in Cleveland are overflowing with #23 Cavalier jersies. If you haven’t heard about the biggest basketball news of the summer, Lebron James (aka. King James) was traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Miami Heat. There are a lot of mixed feelings about Lebron and his “decision”, but one thing is quite clear… what Lebron wants, Lebron gets.


The Decision

The DecisionThe Decision

ESPN made a huge event out of the rumors that Lebron wanted to be traded out of Cleveland. Almost every team in the NBA wanted Lebron too! ESPN broadcasted an entire 1 hour television special called “The Decision” where Lebron announced his decision to be traded. He said that he wanted to be traded to Miami because he feels that is the best place where he has the chance to win the championship.


Crying in Cleveland

Troubled TearsTroubled Tears

Obviously Cleveland wanted to keep Lebron as a Cavalier, but Lebron wanted out of Cleveland. Lebron has all the money in the world, he has won the League’s MVP twice, and now the only thing he has yet to accomplish is to win the NBA Championship. He just didn’t think he could do it in Cleveland. Cleveland fans are not happy. Many news cameras showed the fans crying when Lebron announced his plans to leave.


No Lesson in Losing

It may be totally fair for Lebron to choose to leave Cleveland and team up with a bunch of other superstars to try and dominate the NBA, but where is the honor in that? The legends of the game like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird learned from losing, enjoyed the challenge and found ways to win... it made them better players. They didn’t change teams to find the answer. Lebron lost a lot of respect by many of his peers when he abandoned the Cavs and his hometown state. Lebron was once considered to become one of the greatest, but now it's not looking that way.


"He'll never be Jordan," Charles Barkley told a radio station in Miami. "This (Lebron's Decision) clearly takes him out of the conversation. He can win as much as he wants to."


Spoiled Sell-Out

Terrifying TrioTerrifying Trio

Today there are very few players in the NBA that want to play for “their team”. They leave for more money and to try to stack a team full of superstars. It's especially hard on the fans who have to switch their cheers to boos. OMG think about all the Cleveland #23 jersies that are going to go into the garbage. There is even a huge list of videos on youtube of Cleveland fans burning their Lebron James memorabilia.


Cleveland would have done whatever they could to keep Lebron and their fans loved him too. And it was his hometown state. He could have brought them their first NBA championship. He turned into a humongous sell-out. Let’s talk about this NBA fans… what do you think? Write us what you think in the comments below…
