LeBron is a fool! All he did by going to Miami with Wade and Bosh is tell the world he's not as good as everyone thought he was and he needs not one but TWO other superstars to hope to accomplish anything in his career! You'll never see Kobe, Tim Duncan or any other TRUE superstar go play for someone else's team. Thats why D-Wade stayed because he is a true superstar..NOT LeBron. He tarnished his name and his word and although he may not care what anyone thinks of him or has to say about his "decision", he WILL care that this fiasco he put on will only hurt his brand and tarnish his legacy. Cleveland won't be as good a team without him as they were with him but I believe in the next couple years Dan Gilbert will put a championship caliber team back on the floor at The Q and LeBron will be just a memory!

Lebron was wrong, but Cleveland and that entire region is an armpit. The town and regions suck and they're not actually happening places.

Lebron did what any player with hopes of winning a championship would have done. It takes more than one player to win championships and Cleveland was not willing to build a team with enough talent to get the job done. Basketball is a team sport not a one man show. He may never win one but you have to put yourself in the best position possible if that is your goal. Cleveland fans should be mad at the organization for not building a team around him while he was there.

I've heard reports that Derrick Rose wasn't trying to help recruit LeBron for the Bulls,and that that seemed to shock LeBron. If it's true,it just goes to show that sometimes silence speaks louder than words.

LeBron will have to live with "the Mistake" that he and his possee called "the Decision" for the rest of his life.(You know,I was kinda' puzzled by the clothes he wore for the occasion: plaid shirt,blue jeans,hushpuppies. I expected him to be in a real fly suit,or something.) If things start going bad in Miami,for whatever reason,I think LeBron will end up feeling like the "prodical son" mentioned in the Holy Bible. But that doesn't mean I think he'll ever play pro ball in Cleveland again. And why should he? He deserves in to in a beautiful place like Florida,or California,or wherever,if he wants to. He's worked extremely hard,and he's earned that right.

LeBron,when are you going to marry that girl and stop stringing her along? Don't you trust her,and yourself,enough to,at least get a pre-nup and then marry her. It's wrong for you to be living with her and not be married to her.

If the Heat don't win the NBA championship NEXT YEAR,the whole sports world will look upon the Heat's acquisition of James,Bosh,and the others as a failure. And many are hoping that's what happens. The boo-birds will be EAGERLY awaiting LeBron when the Heat make it to the Cavs arena for the first time. And you know what? I'm actually expecting LeBron to respond to all of the boo-birds like a lion on a mission. Many recipients of boo-filled taunts in the past have responded with stats that give the impression that they had buckled under the pressure of being constantly jeered. I'm expecting LeBron to come to Cleveland and remind them why he is the defending two-time NBA MVP.

sorry LOL but what LEQUIT did was not what any player does, He LIED AND HE THREW THE GAME!!! he is a COWARD, he went on National Tele and ending up making a complete Idiot out of himself. Real and Loyal players do not Quit, OH and by the way , he had help, Plenty of help, it was LeQuit himself who chose to lose the ball numerous times and make it look like he was hurt, when if fact his plan was to LOSE.....watch the tapes!
