I loved Lebron James. I only started watching basketball because of him.
He just turned his back on the best fanbase an athlete can ever have. He will go to Miami and maybe win some championships.... but those fans will
never love him like we did.
Ohio fans, in general, are absolutely crazy. They aren't the type of fans one would like to eternally tick off.
This whole thing was stupid. I lost a lot of respect for LeBron either way he went.
Even if he stayed, he turned his free agency into a media circus. He got his own show on ESPN for it, and ultimately, sold out the people that had his
back over all these years.
He lost his reset button. He could lose at the end of a season and his fans still had his back. We would have had his back even if he never won a
Chip. He did the one thing he could have done to lose that. Every game, every season, and every possession that doesn't work out for him, he will be
taking the blame and ridicule alone.
