If you're not an NBA Fan, might as well not read, just wanna blog a bit about LeBron James.
First off, I'm a Chicago Bulls fan and obviously would have been happy to have LeBron join the Bulls, but it's whatever.
The way in which he handled this entire situation as a selfish/arrogant/attention whore has just been laughable, it's really a joke how much attention this whole thing got and then LeBron deciding he has to announce his decision on a one-hour made for TV Special, "The Decision."
Meanwhile, guys like Kevin Durant and Kobe Bryant quietly sign extensions w/out any attention drawn to themselves, even Wade and Bosh announced together on sportscenter in a brief interview of their decision, but LeBron needed more, which is sad, in a way.
What makes this whole thing very sad is not that all that, though. The truly sad thing is that he's born and raised in Cleveland, he's a hero there, a legend, basically a God, "King James." And, rather than being a classy/mature individual who respects where they came from, he decided that he'd go on National TV to essentially stab his hometown in the back. In the interview he mentions that he didn't any teams before this that he didn't choose them, that he just called the Heat right before. Not only is that just a massive stab in the back to an entire city that he's heralded as a king, it's unprofessional for the 5 other teams who did everything that they could to lure them to their cities.
Anyways, before this gets too long, my final thoughts on LeBron is that we really found out what kind of competitor he is. He's obviously the type that wants to throw in the towel and join a "super team" that almost guarantees him a championship (and probably more), Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, none of those guys would have ever done something like this. The most insane thing of all is that as a 25 year old he's already taking the easy road, if he was 32, 33 years old I could maybe understand it a bit more. For instance when Malone and Gary Payton signed with the Lakers in 2000 or whatever to try and have one last chance at a title, that's understandable, guys who have worked hard their whole career and haven't gotten a title, that's fine.
But, LeBron, you proved you wanted the easy way out.
I'm a huge sports fan, just wanted to vent, haha. This is cool btw.
