I have no problem with LeBron choosing what he feels is the quickest way to an NBA championship...maybe Mr. Gilbert instead of playing the "Home Sweet Home" card you should have listened to what LeBron was clearing saying which is "give me some help".

Well said

Most idiots on here will still argue the opposite though
Shit replacement gm, rubbish coach byron scott... well done cavs

I hope Melo joins the knicks next year, Heat vs Knicks will be awesome to watch again then!!!

what are you on about. 60 win team two years in a row.

here are some stats for you son, ignorance is bliss as they say but let me burst your bubble
Varejao -
Big Z - no2 offensive rebounder in the league
Shaq - Top 5 center even at his age (even bynum and perkins got nothing on him, only dwight and yao)
Jamison - got him for nothing
Mo williams - offensive efficiency among PG's 5th, defensive efficiency 12th
bench - no 2 in the nba after the Magic


Now lets talk lakers

Besides Kobe and Pau, fisher was inconsistent besides games 3 and 7 in the finals

Artest was the same besides games 6 & 7

Odom had a bad series but still did his bits
the bench were in hibernation

If Lebron did not quit he could have been in the finals. He quit, the world knows and its not the cavs fault, its his as he bailed out on them.

Gilbert chose the 2nd option.
Yep!

Correct



Also, if the rest of the team was so great as you claim, and he "just gave up" where were they??!?

Thats right, they stood around like idiots that had no clue what was going on, normally ending in a turnover/ crap shot...

Word. He is now my favorite owner beating Mark Cuban (too bad Cuban denied saying "Your league is rigged" to Stern - which it is, otherwise he would still be GOAT owner).

Only problem is how he went about it. The one hour special was way too over the top! He should have at least said to the owner or gm or whoever at the cavs that he wouldnt be back though.. Although it was pretty obvious he wanted to go somewhere and win, and the cavs have no chance...

I remember watching the cavs when they had kemp, anderson, knight , big z etc, no way they had all these "loyal" fans then. Asswipes

Will all these loyal fans show up next season to all the home games still?? Lets be honest there crowd was always pretty quiet and shit anyway.


Very unprofessional from gilbert Im sure FA will be lining up to sign there!!! Good luck in the lottery next year loser....
if he shit all over his best player ever then who the hell would ever want to play for this prick.

Maybe not.

Then again, one would probably think twice about getting into a relationship with a girl who threatened to stab her last boyfriend when he broke up with her.

I mean being upset is one thing. Wishing voodoo curses and swearing to unleash a cavalcade of dirty secrets is quite another.

Lebron first tried to get Bosh to come to cleveland to play alongside lebron. I think Bosh did not want to go there and i dont blame him.. He also tried to get Bosh with him to Chicago.

I think Lebron made the right decision after exploring those options.
