Lebron had been with Cleveland for 7 years allowing those fans to line his pockets with millions of dollars and dreams of a promised championship.
Lebron was going to make million regardless of who drafted him, he owned the fans nothing more than the 7 years he gave them, and he earned ever single dime he made.
I fail to see how a kid coming out of college who has earned nothing
choosing and picking where he will play in the NBA is somehow less ridiculous. Lebron earned his right to play wherever he wanted, Magic didn't.
Personally, I really don't see a problem with either scenario. Just a bunch of juvenile "fans" who can't separate basketball from bullshit drama. You'd think this shit was the WWE.
