Anyone else think the "Decision" special on ESPN wasn't really LeBron's idea?
It seems like something his punk business managers (Mav Carter or whatever the f-ck his name is) pushed as a good idea.
Because he did not look comfortable or even all that happy to be doing that at all.
I think LeBron needs to cut that entourage off, he doesn't need them.
Are you kidding me?
Of course it was LeBron's idea. This kind of spectacle is exactly what he wanted and exactly what he has been building to FOR YEARS. He looked uncomfortable because he isn't confident enough in his intellect to sit and answer unscripted questions for long periods of time.
He always looks semi-uncomfortable with a camera on him, because he probably knows that he is going to mispronounce or misuse a word, due to his third grade-level grammar.
But, there is absolutely no doubt that this was James' idea.... This kind of attention wh0ring is right in his wheelhouse.
He is the first FA to handle things in such a public, callous way. Gilbert is obviously speaking openly when maybe the best thing would be to sleep on it and react in the morning, but he also speaks for a lot of people that are stunned by this 'decision.'
Make no mistake... LeBron 'went hard' on us before Gilbert fired back at him. This whole debacle which culminated in 'The Decision' was possibly the most pretentious, self-centered thing I have seen any sports figure do.
I think that sums it up.
The point is the WAY Lebron left.
He did not rip the bandaid off quickly.
NO, he dragged it out like torture... while self-promoting.
Indeed, he chose to self promote over the feelings of his greatest fans.
Why would he sign long term?! The franchise has been incompetent since day 1.
Again...you are talking about a franchise that has sold out for the last 5 years, appeared in 2 ECF, 1 NBA Finals, and has the best record in the league for 2 straight years. Take all the stabs at our city, our weather, and our lack of championships, but this is hardly an incompetent franchise.
the guy is pathetic and lost it. hard to believe he s a grown man. was he drunk. lol at cavs wining a chip before bron does with miami. retarded. must have been drunk seriously. what a bunch of losers.
