Lebron James is not stupid. But leaving the Miami Heat is the King's dumbest decision. It's worse than "the Decision" in 2010, when he moved to the Magic City. He's giving up living in paradise, residing in a state with no income tax, and playing for the most stable, most competitive organization next to the San Antonio Spurs. By going back to Cleveland, LeBron is essentially bowing down to Dan Gilbert, the Cavaliers' owner, who doesn't value James as the league's greatest player other than using him to increase the value of the franchise and sell out Quicken Loans Arena. In fact, Gilbert is the worst NBA owner next to Donald Sterling. When LeBron left via free agency four years ago, Gilbert acted like a plantation owner angry that his top slave had been freed. Now Gilbert wants to pretend he never dissed LeBron. Shortly before re-signing the NBA's reigning king, the Cavaliers removed from their website the letter Gilbert wrote ripping LeBron's character and integrity. Though returning home might seem lik ...
Don't expect a nasty goodbye letter from the Miami Heat. They have way too much class to do something like that. Dan Gilbert does not deserve Lebron.
Alright, so here it is… 14 years ago, sometime during the fall of 2000, I became a huge Dwyane Wade fan. During the fall Marquette basketball banquet I saw Dwyane Wade (who would be ineligible for his Freshman year at MU) practice. We ain’t talking about a game, I’m talking about a practice. After this practice, I thought to myself “I think this guy is going to be good.” So I chose to make my AOL Instant Messenger name “DwyaneWade” (spelled correctly “Dwy”…). So yes, for an entire year my AIM name was named after a player that sat on Marquette’s bench in a suit. On June 26th, 2003 I became a Miami Heat fan. As a diehard Marquette basketball fan, I became an NBA fan to follow the greatest player to ever play college basketball in the state of Wisconsin, Dwyane Wade. I have long told people that if D-Wade played for the Charlotte Bobcats, that I would be all about the Bobcats, or if the Grizzlies go back to Vancouver and sign Wade, I’d be ready to cheer them on. If Dwyane plays bask ...
Lebron James to Cleveland. Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert just put out this message to Miami Heat fans all across the country. "Please form a single-file line to board the Cavalier bandwagon on the corner of "These *** ain't loyal" and "I've Always Been A Heat Fan"
As a Miami Heat fan the last 4 years has been a great ride and I appreciate LeBron bringing two more championships to the Heat legacy. Deep down though I always knew the King was a Queen and would eventually give in to what the ESPN and public opinion fake sports narrative demanded that you do. Go home Queen James, make everyone happy and look forward to all the *** to mouth Dan Gilbert has planned for you over the next 4 years before you opt out yet again to go chase rings somewhere else.
Four years ago, Cleveland Cavalier fans, players, employees and owners witnessed Lebron James announce his decision to leave the team on national television. For most, there was no warning or even hint of his departure. Even the Cavaliers' ownership group found out a mere five minutes before James went on live TV. Naturally, the response wasn't a positive one. Cameras were rolling all across bars and restaurants in Northeast Ohio. When James let the words "South Beach" cross his lips, the result was a collective mixture of groans, yells and utter disbelief. Jerseys were doused with lighter fluid and set ablaze, fans cursed his name and Cavaliers' majority owner Dan Gilbert described the decision as a "shocking act of disloyalty" in his now infamous letter. That night in Cleveland, bridges, along with jerseys, were burned. Or so we thought. Now, just four short years after James left the Cavaliers heartbroken and without an identity, rumors have swirled about a possible return. The Cavs brass have already ...
Daily Dose of FOUR (4) Comic Strips .. AN OBSERVATION ~ Andy Borowitz (It’s Satire Folks!) LEBRON TO ANNOUNCE DECISION AT United Nations NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—N.B.A. superstar Lebron James said Tuesday morning that he would announce the name of the team that he is signing with on Thursday at a special session of the United Nations General Assembly to be convened especially for that purpose. “This decision affects everyone on the planet,” James said. “I want to let all the nations on Earth know at the same time.” An emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council on Tuesday was deadlocked on the issue, with seven members wanting James to remain in Miami, seven others hoping for a return to Cleveland, and Lithuania abstaining. The Miami Heat president, Pat Riley, and the Cleveland Cavaliers owner, Dan Gilbert, both confirmed that they would be in the audience at the United Nations to hear James announce his decision. “I’m not going to lie: I wish he’d tell me in advance,” Riley s ...

Congrats to the Miami Heat! Their defense was great, their role players played great, they hit their free throws... Hard to beat a team that's running on all cylinders like that. With that being said, GO SPURS!
Just want the world to know I hate the Miami Heat.
A good majority of "Miami Heat fans" aren't Miami Heat fans. They are bandwagon Lebron James or Dwayne Wade fans. You realize how CORNY it is to just pick one of the best players in the world and ride their jock? So whenever LBJ or D-Wade retires, youre just gonna pick another superstar to keep your NBA man crush alive??? Basketball is a TEAM sport. So pick a TEAM to cheer for!
We hesitate even giving rumor-mongering like this a bigger forum, considering that this is clearly what the author was after all along, but it's a Wednesday and it's January and no player from Tuesday night's NBA action checked into a game wearing his shorts on backwards. So we're going to pass along the "report," from Fox Sports' Sam Amico, that Lebron James might consider rejoining the Cleveland Cavaliers someday. Not as his career winds down, mind you. And not assuming nemesis and Cleveland owner Dan Gilbert sells the Cavaliers, or the young team puts together two or three more studs via the draft and free agency and starts spitting out 60 wins again. No, Amico is quoting unnamed sources and telling you that James (frustrated at the Pat Riley-ness of the Miami Heat) would consider going to Cleveland at age 29 when his contract runs out with the Heat. Because these sources know exactly what James will be considering some 30 months from now. It's a delightful read. Here's a quote: Now, there is talk that ...
Today's thought...The Decision. Two years ago, Lebron James made a decision that had rippling effects for a lot of people. He had the option to stay with his hometown team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, where the team would have paid him anything he wanted and get the necessary players around him to contend for a championship. The catch here was that as much as LeBron wanted to stay at home and win the NBA Championship, he realized that he had gone as far as he could with the Cavaliers, and that in order for him to get better and achieve his ultimate goal, he needed to make changes. On national television, Lebron announced to the world that he would be taking his talents to "South Beach" a.k.a. Miami Heat. Among a city who burned his jerseys and most of the world who put him down for joining up with his best friends in Miami was the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Dan Gilbert, who perhaps was the biggest critic of his then former employee. Gilbert took to the media with negative comments and even mentioned t ...
Dan Gilbert would probably trade Kyrie Irving and some smallpox blankets to Miami Heat if he thought it could bring Lebron down.
In 2010, Lebron James announced that he was leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Miami Heat. Immediately following the announcement, Dan Gilbert, the owne...
Great quote from a letter written by Dan Gilbert after Lebron James moved to the Miami Heat: "In the letter, Gilbert wrote, 'I personally guarantee that the Cleveland Cavaliers will win an NBA championship before the self-titled former 'King' wins one. You can take it to the bank." That, obviously, did not happen." I guess he picked the wrong bank to take that promise to.
As soon as Lebron James announced his "decision" to join the Miami Heat, Cleveland Cavaliers majority owner Dan Gilbert posted a very nasty open letter to Ca...
Cleveland Cavs gone win a championship before the Miami Heat oh ok Dan Gilbert cavs didnt even make the playoffs in the near future .
I believe that THE BIGGEST BUTTHOLE is Dan Gilbert, the Owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers. 2 Summers ago, he said that the Cavs would win a Championship before LeBron would. THAT BIG DUMMY LIED, HE'S A LIAR! Last Summer the Dallas Mavericks won the 2011 NBA Championship, this Summer in the 2012 NBA Finals, it was the Miami Heat. And who was on the Miami Heat weraring it was Lebron James! HE WAS THE 2012 NBA FINALS MVP!
Remember that time the jilted owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers guaranteed -- in comic sans font -- that his team would win an NBA championship before Lebron James and the Miami Heat? Well, Dan Gilbert was wrong.
