Why do you think LeBron left a 60+ win team that made the Eastern Conf Finals and turned down 30 extra million on his contract???

Wade and Bosh? Pfft....

LeBron left because he saw the writing on the wall and that is, he would never win a title in Cleveland...

Hence, why he is in Miami...and who knows? Maybe he doesn't win one here, but I sure like his chances this season and for the next 4 beyond this one.

LeBron may be a fantastic player but he's a selfish pampered person. His demands on Cleveland had as much to destroy the team as anything. Demanding so many parking spaces depriving other players spouses etc etc. He is a poison who needs a strong handed coach that makes him become a team player on and off the court. Untill then I doubt if any team he is on will win anything. He is a selfish brat that isn't willing to do what it takes to be a winner. MJ, Scotty, Kobe, etc would have told LeBron where to get off. He's a cancerand you'll find that out in Miami.

The Cavs can rebuild a contender but it will take a few years through the draft. They spent too much on players to fit the team with LeBron on it to keep LeBron happy. By the way I find it repulsive and insulting that a Flordia and a Pittsburgh person (Probably a Steelers fan.) has the gall to come here and tell us this crap. I just don't know who you think you are to tell us Ohio people how to think. We are entitled to our opinions and anger so LIVE WITH IT!!!!

While I think that LeBron is immature in ways, in others he isn't...

Your analogy mentioning Kobe just basically took any valid argument you had and tossed it out the window.

Kobe has alienated many of his peers and was involved in a rape for god's sake...yet, you forget all of that because he won a few titles since then??

LeBron was an idiot for having that ESPN special...but in no way is he selfish on the court...his 7 assists per game proves that.

Now...I just read your 2nd post and find that even funnier.

I guess in Miami or in Pitt we are not allowed to have an opinion either??

Have your anger all you want, it is quite mis-directed...

What it shows is that Cleveland had a crap team...

My point, if LeBron left Miami right now(he cant), Miami would still be a 50+ win team.

Difference is, Riley knows how to coach and build winners...Dan Gilbert is a moron.

Live with that.

Dan Gilbert a moron? No. He is not the coach, gm or player. He is the owner.

What casual fans like yourself fail to realize is players/starters like Manny Harris, Ryan Hollins, Alonzo Gee, Ramon Sessions, Christian Eyenga, Joey Graham and others, were NOT on the last two 60+ win seasons. LeBron would not win many more games if this were the line-up. Also, what was the Cavs record prior to Mo Williams? Although that team was built around James, the Cavs organization is doing what it can to move forward.

Heatle fans also forget Big Z is a starter for the Heatles. There big winning streak didn't start until Big Z was inserted into the starting line-up. No Z is not THE player on the heat, but you have to give credit were credit is due and stop blaming the wrong people.
