08:14 AM ET 08.20 | The author of GQ's LeBron James piece has a little insight on how Jim Gray wound up hosting "The Decision." My God, he's one of the biggest idiots in the business. "LeBron's known him for a long time," [J.R.] Moehringer said. "Jim interviewed him when he was in high school. So there was a comfort factor. LeBron's known him since he was a kid. That counts for a lot with LeBron. Jim Gray was someone he trusted. It also was Jim Gray's idea. He proposed it to LeBron's people courtside at the NBA Finals. Since it was his idea, he was the man to do the interview. People have just dumped all kinds of abuse on Jim Gray, but I don't think anybody would have wanted to be in that director's chair. That was like being the captain on the Titanic."

I agree. And, now that I know Dan Gilbert never cared about LeBron, and DeLonte West didn't even care about Lebron's Mom, I'm ready for the next chapter. Dan Gilbert only paid Lebron $62 million dollars in salary over 7 years, he "earned" tens of millions more in endorsements, got to make all decisions, and was anointed by God as the Chosen One. Poor guy. I've never heard of anyone who has suffered like that in my life. Sob. Let's put Gilbert in prison.

Lebron is not a kid. He's freakin 25 even though he looks 40. It's about time he owns up to his stupidity instead of pointing fingers and looking for a way out. Face the funk like a man bro... talking like Gilbert doesn't care about you... of course he doesn't. You think Buss gives a **** about Kobe? But he's matured enough to separate friends, family and business. Grown up LeQuit.

And why will Laker or Cavs fans give a wreck. Lakers will destroy Miami if they met in the playoffs but I doubt that will happen as Boston and Orlando are waiting patiently for the honors of sending Lebron packing. As for Cleveland they are a lottery team. Matter of fact they have to be a lottery team so why will they want anything to do with the backstabbing traitor about to turn tragic hero?
