LeBron in better Cleveland days

I felt like I was witnessing a slave auction.

1800s slave auction where on a regular basis they attracted the crowds, the money and the media. The big boys with the big bread would be present ready to look, size up, negotiate and sign on dotted lines for the best man to get the job done for their name sake.

Same motive different day with a little role reversal on the side.

Notes from NBA TV’s Coverage of Decision 2010–Thursday, July 8, 2010: LeBron Bounces to South Beach

The fine print says 7 years in Cleveland, no rings

Listen, before this gets outta hand, how in the hell did LeBron James go from arguably the most loved basketball player in the NBA to its most hated mercenary? Writers/editors cut the bs and stop swinging on Cleveland’s jock. They are hurting enough and willfully exacerbating the city’s blistering pain shows just how coward and opportunistic a lot of you are.

This is a NBA Stickup: LeBron James to Join Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade As Members of the Miami Heat

Lakers, Celtics, Magic and whoever the hell else should forget about rings for a while

Cleveland cries as Miami’s salt water dries to a future ring shine…

The jack move…

LeBron will get booed unmercifully in practically every NBA city next season.

The egomaniac tag does not fit. LeBron will take less money than the Cleveland max. This is a NBA stickup. Miami still has a lot of work to do to field a team (Beasley will most likely be part of sign and Bosh trade) because of the CBA, but trust Pat Riley will get it done.

(Added two videos. I’ll have more on this after I complete the LeBron/Oscar Grant piece)
