For GOD sakes he's just a pro athlete, not someone who can make a difference in this world.
Quit burning up ink and celluloid to report on something this trivial!!!!

Consider the fact that LeBron James is a major entertainment venue. Not the Cavs, LeBron. The Q is virtually sold out every night the Cavs play. That brings thousands of people to downtown Cleveland. Those people spend money on parking, gas, food and post game entertainment. The city of Cleveland can actually trace in increase in tax revenue generated during the Cavs games in the downtown area. It's estimated that LeBron generates over $100,000,000 in revenue for area businesses. That doesn't include the taxes he pays or the money he spends as a consumer.

Then you have his charitable works. LeBron pours millions of dollars into a variety of causes in the Cleveland/Akron area.

You ask who cares? I'd say more people than you could imagine.

"4th, Get an athletic, physical 5 post player. He has not had one."

Yeah, because the league is just teaming with players that fit this profile and teams that want to deal them. Not to mention the fact that NOBODY ever goes to Cleveland in any sport at anytime until they are completely washed up. Sheeeeeeesh!!!

Jordan(with an a not an o) didn't win those championships by himself. He had Pippen, Kerr, Cartwright, Stacy King, Hodges to help him with that. No one "star" can win a championship by themselves. Kobe Bryant found this out as soon as Shaq left the Lakers. Educate yourself a little more before you speak.
Educate yourself ahole, none of those guys were A listers or won champs other places either.
