CP wrote:Reason it rang true for me was that he, like James now, claimed the move was about "winning", which was not really true. It was about the extra guaranteed money, just like James' move was done so that Wade can carry him to some titles. Entirely their right to move on, just don't blow smoke up our asses about it.


But isn't being D Wades caddy as he gets another title, a version of 'winning'?

It is in the same way that Canada won WWII. They were on the winning side but...

Oh, I agree completely. A Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, or Larry Bird would not dot this. Hell, an Elgin Baylor, Jerry West, Julius Erving or Walt Frazier wouldn't do it either.

But I can see MeBron's rationalization that watching a real alpha dog in D.Wade win a championship is 'winning'

Dear fellow Cav's Fans in N.E. Ohio,

I heard that the tool formerly known as the "King" is in Akron and worked-out at SV/SM's today? Is that true? If so, how is that possible?

The Cleveland/Akron I remember would never tolerate a scumbag of Lebron's magnitude to roam freely after such a heinous act. I'm glad no one has tried to physically attack him but I hope the locals make it extremely unpleasant for him and that he is given the "full Cleveland" in terms of verbal expressions and special sauces at the local restaurants.

Until he fully understands how wrong his actions are, apologizes for them and somehow makes amends he should never feel comfortable in N.E. Ohio in my opinion.

Even Modell knew he wasn't welcomed anymore and respected that and got the hell out to never return. Lebron is such an egomaniac he either doesn't understand or thinks he is above it. I really hope the great people of N.E. Ohio set him straight on this.

half the treatment afforded to visiting Steeler fans after the Browns/Steelers game and/or anything that doesn't get you thrown in jail would be great in my opinion. I guess castration, lynching, crucifiction and stoning would be a bit over the top.

Unless you are extremely fast I wouldn't suggest any sort of physical violence!!! Even if you are, probably not a good idea.

Well, yeah, it's over the top if we do ALL of those. We'll probably have to just pick 1 or 2 of them.

Castration is out. He kind of already did that himself last week.
