Going to the Heat. What an asshole.

Kobe has become the lord's hand of judgment. Fuck LeBron.

It'd be awesome if they overran the cops and burned that shit down.

I agree with Justin, although I didn't watch the special. I was reading but the internets told me it was classless.

So what exactly did Lebron owe the city of Cleveland? It's his fault the city sucks?

Dan Gilbert? Are you kidding me? Talk about lack of class. Good luck getting a free agent now, jerkwagon.

I don't think he owed the city of Cleveland anything but I think he owed the Cavs something.

The least of which is not doing an hour long special on ESPN to fuel your narcissism and to kick them to the curb on national TV. I agree with Justin that the entire thing was classless.

They made all the moves over the past few years that LeBron wanted them to make, and in the end, he didn't lead the team. Basketball is a team game.

Now he is looking to go to Miami and buy a ring and avoid the heavy lifting that comes from being the #1 guy on the team. He is the #2 guy on Wade's team. We'll see how it goes with 3 guys who all want the ball all of the time. And see how their roster fills out with players willing to play at the league minimum.

I didn't watch the special, but I heard snippets on the radio. I don't know anyone who had a higher view of LeBron after the special than they did before the special.

Lebron owes Cleveland that boston series.

I can't say I blame him for leaving, if i were him i would've done the same thing, except I'd have gone to Chicago.

i think he pretty much cemented his legacy last night though.

he'll never even be close to mike and kobe.

more from Dan Gilbert:

Quote:
"He has gotten a free pass," Gilbert said in a phone interview with The AP. "People have covered up for [James] for way too long. Tonight we saw who he really is."

Gilbert said James quit on the Cavs during their second-round series against the Boston Celtics, who rallied from a 2-1 deficit to eliminate Cleveland.

"He quit," Gilbert said. "Not just in Game 5, but in Games 2, 4 and 6. Watch the tape. The Boston series was unlike anything in the history of sports for a superstar."

The Cavaliers were beaten by 32 points in Game 5. During the game, James appeared distracted and uninterested, often glaring at Cleveland's coaches as the Cavs tried to foul to get back into the game in the second half. James also made some puzzling postgame comments, saying he had "spoiled" people with his play over seven seasons.

Gilbert also said he believes James quit on the Cavs in Game 6 of their series in 2009 against Orlando.

"Go back and look at the tape," he said. "How many shots did he take?"

Gilbert, who has owned the Cavs for five years, said he was most disappointed by James' behavior in the months leading up to the superstar's announcement that he is going to Miami to play with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. Gilbert said James never returned a single phone message or text since the end of the season and that the Cavs were not informed of James' decision until he went on the air.

I really wanted to hear him announce he was going to play for NY, specifically THEEE HARLEM GLOBETROTTERS.

PS- I guess this means that he won't be trying out for the Browns but instead that enormous dago run Dolphins.

I love Gilbert's response. Cool dude. Only Death is real.

he left the team no cap space and no draft picks, due to decisions he signed off on

he made a promise to win a ring and failed ( and this year his uninspired play in the playoffs contributed greatly to this)

Dan Gilbert cost us free agents, Puh Leez. We couldnt get Bosh here with Lebron, we didnt have far to fall there

he didnt have the decency to make a call to the franchise

he made his decision to become a 3rd banana, in a hour long nationally televised special. He didnt sign up for rings, he signed up to have the pressure taken off his shoulders (which have the "chosen one" tatooed on them)

Dan Gilbert had to energize a deflated fanbase to sell tickets, and as a Clevelander im going to buy some

possibly the only guy who handled this situation worse than lebron.

he's owned the cavs for five years. why do you throw millions into a pro sports franchise and immediately give up all your power to a 20-year old kid?

look at the cavs rosters over the last 5 years. where is the the scottie pippen, the kareem, the shaq (not the old shaq), the kevin mchale/robert parish, the pau gasol even? big Z? anderson varejao? booby gibson? lebron was never given the team that he needed to win a championship. clearing shit with lebron or not, that's incompetent management from the front office. they couldn't make a move to be competitive with miami or chicago or even the knicks for god's sake because they're paying guys like varejao $50 million dollars over 6 years.

enjoy your cavs tickets. i'd advise buying seats for when the nets come to town. it should be a close game, and you might even win.

without Lebron committing we were screwed. The moves made were some of the most creative front office moves of the last decade

Pippen came through the draft (from Central Arkansas) its not as if he was surefire addition

The 80's celtics components were mainly drafted as well (we have no picks, we traded them to keep the "King" happy)

Gasol was traded to the lakers by Memphis GM Jerry West (wink, Wink)

Garnett was traded to the celtics by T wolves GM Mchale (wink, Wink)

We made the only moves we could to keep the chosen one happy, and now are left to pick up the pieces. The dude is only 25!!!

Gilbert has rallied the Cleveland fanbase, which was his only hope marketing wise, cuz we are SCREWED roster wise for a couple years to come

I'm not positive but I think Mchale and Parish were traded for not drafted. Maybe that douchebag Gilbert should take a look at Aurerbach to see how to put together a team.

This notion that Lebron owed the Cavs something is completely ridiculous. No athlete owes a franchise anything other than to play their best which Lebron did except for arguably one game in the playoffs last year. Actually, look at Lebron's numbers in that series and compare them to Bryant's in the finals. The Celts are a good defensive team. Difference is that Kobe isn't surrounded by a bunch of clowns.

Let's not forget how the the Cavs mailed it in the season before Lebron came out so they could draft him. Where were all the cries of loyalty and work ethic then?
