Ok it's actually funny that I'm writing this post because just a couple days ago I was like you all with the LBJ hate but now that the dust has settled I think it's time to get over Lebron sweepstakes and stop hatin!
The kid is 25 years old, is practiclly a billionaire, and had a decision to make. He owes nothing to the games past legends or the Bulls, the Knicks, the Nets, the Clips, or even the Cavs (ok maybe a little since he was born and raised there) but it's his and his decision only to make so who gives a damn how he makes it. I mean we all give a little damn because he's the best player right now and it effects alot where he ended up but can we really get on his case about it? 25 years old, rich as Daddy Warbucks and wants what everyone else wants - to win a ship or even better more than one.
If I were him, I would have made the same choice now that I think about it. Maybe if Bosh went to Chi-town that could have changed things, but playing with ur 2 olympic buddys down in a hot, mixed culture, lively environment sure beats playing in Cleveland with nobody or New Jersey with nobody or even New York with amare. It's unfair for teams like the Bulls and Knicks and even Cavs to even be pissed. Although I agree he handled the situation wrong, he didn't owe anything to anyone. The thing is everyone was drooling over him and cleared their teams for 2 years, launched huge campaigns to got there respective cities hopped up the lebron sweepstakes all the while salivating at the thought ofseeing him in their teams colors next year. However, this was going to happen wherever he went. 5 of the 6 teams would be furious he didnt go to them.
However this plays out I think it will be fun to watch the Heat next year. Should be a dynamic team if they can add a few pieces. Miami won the lottery and the other teams were just a couple numbers off. Tough luck on there part, but there's only one Lebron and he can go wherever the heck he wants. Glad Miami's in the east! but stop the hate, he's just a kid, let him play basketball wherever he wants!
