I have to be the first to admit that I was a Lebron James fan when he first entered the league. Granted I never liked to see him come to Indianapolis because it was usually an ugly display by my Pacers, but none the less he is a great player. He came into the league right out of high school and played with the big boys. Yes he did have a small learning curve, but it was minimum compared to many new professionals and he was only 18. Impressive to say the least as he lead a bad excuse of a NBA team to a consistent contender. He was the leader of the team for seven years, being a mature, hard-working player. Then when the contract in Cleveland was up he got with his buddies and acted like a 18 year old, but he is now 26.
Leborn, Miami, and the rest of the world, Cleveland has the right to be mad. Leborn gave up last year in the playoffs. Then he gave no clues as to where he was looking to play this year. Finally he made a huge display on national T.V. proclaiming he was leaving Cleveland and "heading to South Beach." The problem is not that he moved to Miami to make a super team, the problem was the way he did it.
"When things get difficult, Leborn, you run...that's your legacy" Ouch!
