And yet Cleveland had the best record in the NBA in both 2009 and 2010 despite surrounding LeBron 'with garbage'.
I'm not a Cleveland fan. I'm not an NBA fan. Heck I'm not really even a basketball fan anymore - I have gravitated towards sports where scoring is an actual accomplishment.
I defend LeBron's right to leave Cleveland for Miami, regardless of his reasons. What I can't defend is the way he did it. He strung the Cleveland franchise along - handcuffing them until he announced his decision. And then putting a spotlight on 'the decision' was absolute classless. The live TV coverage of the Cleveland fans having the rug pulled out from under them was truly sad. Did he not understand that would happen? Did he not care?
When LeBron realizes the entire world does not revolve around him he might be able to start rebuilding his legacy.
