Lebron is hated because:

1) The decision

2) Taking the easy way out and colluding with two other superstars and heading to some team with an already established star and championship.

If he had gone to New York without the decision bullshit he wouldn't have been as hated. There are people that would hate Lebron no matter where he went but those people aren't reasonable to begin with. Imagine the insane amount of love he'd get in NY, he'd be a legend playing in front of packed houses every game instead of half empty arenas. The pressure to win in NY is huge, but the great players thrive on pressure.

My point is the decision is over and he is in Miami winning games while dummies like Simmons are worrying about how he would walk down the street in NY and how the crowd would go wild.

Once again, Simmons is a step or two ahead of all sportswriters out there.

Not unless they move MSG to Miami. Game's in South Beach.

I'm sure LeBron is kicking himself right now. Probably thinking, "Why was Walsh in that wheelchair? I would have signed with NY if he had just walked in the room!".

erm.. as a Heat fan, this is exactly what I'm afraid of. clearly lebron carried wade in some series and vice versa. I don't think Amare and Bron are the pressure-type players

Fixed that for you. Only thing LeBron is owning is a fishing license, as he will continue to get bounced out of the playoffs yearly until his pathetic excuse of a career is over.

LeBron should just pull a GOBB. Call it quits and sleep on the cum drenched couch in his mother's basement.
