I suspect it will mean quite a bit to the Heat fans if he wins one in Miami. It will mean a lot to the organization, the city, the fans, his family, his team mates, etc. It just won't mean much to Cleveland.
The last year has revealed much more about NBA fans than it has about LeBron IMO.
/realize I am **way** in the minority on this one.
Heat fans? Yes, I'm sure both of them will be very happy
That was just another kick to the groin...he leaves a town with a sports fever and joins the Heat, which very well may have the worst fans in the league and maybe all of pro sports. This is not just hyperbole either....awful attendence in recent years despite a title in 2006 and Wade.
And even in these playoffs, they were giving away free food to anyone who arrived in their seat for tip off and sent instructional videos to fans on how to cheer properly...you should watch it, it's pretty funny.
No one in Miami cares....all reports were that that arena was more or less dead and compared to the other teams in the playoffs it was a morgue.
But like Lebron said after the series, he gets to wake up tomorrow and go back to his life and all of his critics have to wake up and go back to theirs.
