Wow really hope u believe this because this was an interview of him thanking all those people and not saying *** them. If ur gonna bash that phony atleast tell the truth.

I've actually calmed down. What Lebron did was kinda mean, but you can't deny his will to get a ring.

As much as Art Model is still hated (He moved the Browns/Ravens how many years ago?) in N.E. Ohio, Lebron has topped it. Lebron will have to realize he will be hated for the rest of his life by some people for running out. No excuses will EVER make it up to die hard fans.

WHO CARES?

LeBron is LeGone...get over it Cleveland...

Consider yourselves lucky for having the pick the year he came out and making your teams enjoyable to watch for the last 7yrs.

If you want to be mad at someone, be mad at Cavs ownership...

It was those execs who could not put a championship team around him while Miami did it around Wade with Shaq.

Now, Miami will be a dominant team for the next 5yrs and you guys will pretty much be a 42-42 club hoping for a playoff seed.

Wow another florida person jumping on the heat bandwagon and defending james. I live in tampa and have seen so many people jump from orlando to the heat and alot that that hated james now love him. Anybody reading this dont really take people from this state seriously because thier not raelly big sports fans accept if thier team is a winner. Heck the rays are the top of the american league and still cant sell out half of a game.

I think some of the "Blame the owner" talk is overblown. They didn't win a championship yet, but they were pretty close and its not like the owner wasn't trying to put pieces around him. He was making pretty big changes each of the last 2 seasons to add talent to the team and paying a lot of money for it. It just happened that the bigger moves Gilbert made didn't work out. For whatever reason, Mo Williams and Antawn Jamison disappeared in the playoffs, but it doesn't change that they are both very good players. Shaq wasn't used very well, but he was still effective enough to make a contribution. It didn't work out, but its not like they weren't trying and there really was no reason to think management wasn't going to continue to add big name players and do whats necessary to win.

If you could get rid of Mike Brown sooner, play a faster pace, and get a coach to tell Lebron what the team is going to do instead of Lebron telling the coach what the team is going to do then I think the Cavs would have had a much better chance for a championship.

You don't just win championships because the owner spends a certain dollar amount and then everybody else rolls over and plays dead and doesn't compete. After you have the talent, you still have to develop chemistry and work hard to beat the other teams. It seems like people just wanted to give LBJ and the Cavs the championship.

If Lebron was as good as his hype (or even close to it) he had enough talent on his previous Cavs teams, but for whatever reason, be it chemistry or lack of clutchness or poor coaching or whatever reason they didn't get it done. I personally would not accept it being the owner's fault or the talent level of the team that prevented them from winning the championship.

All you Florida people telling us Ohioans how to get over it is funny. How would you have felt if Dan Marino and Don Shula had come to Cleveland? I'm not as naieve as you are, I know what you would have felt and done. So our feelings of betrayal will go on no matter what you say. Maybe forever!!! Honor knows no time limit. A traitor is a traitor even if he defects again. Ask Oswald.
