The league MVP and leading scorer in the NBA Finals, yeah he sure does suck. LMFAO. The only thing that sucks about LeBron is that he had to waste the 1st few years of his career playing for a loser team in a loser town full of bitter losers.

No championship ring, quit every time he had a chance to move Cleveland to a championship, dogged it against Boston in his last year with Cleveland, scheduled a huge hour-long TV show to tell Cleveland fans they're screwed, failed to win last year with his "South Beach Dream Team," need I go on?

He sucks. YOU suck for defending Le Quitter.

He's 2 games away from winning it all. Where's YOUR team at? Oh yeah, watching the Finals on TV just like you.

Let the bitter envy go, man. Cleveland ownership screwed its fans, not Lebron, by failing to spend $$$ to build a team around him.

Do you not get this, or what, dumbass? He QUIT...left Cleveland and its fans...went somewhere else and rubbed it in their faces. That's good with you? Good - then don't complain when he does it to you, furball.

Cleveland had a good team around him, he couldn't lead it. He QUIT.

Stupid f'in sheep, blaming Lebron when it was Cleveland ownership that was at fault for not building a championship team around him. Lebron unselfishly went to where he was most likely to win a championship. He didn't go to where he would earn the most money or where he would own the spotlight. That's being conceited to you?

If he wants to leave here in a few years, so be it. The Heat has a real owner who's dedicated to winning. That's all that's really needed. Lebron ain't the 1st superstar to grace the Heat roster, and he won't be the last. But he probably won't be leaving anytime soon because currently the Heat are his best shot at a ring. That is what Lebron's all about. His actions prove that. Cleveland ownership's actions prove they're in it only for the $$$. Cleveland fans prove they're bitter fucktards.

There were so many factors in why LBJ left the Cavs. Yes, management was at fault but only to a point. Nobody wanted to live and play ball in Cleveland. It's a sad but true reality. The weather sucks and so does the market there and there's a bad aura concerning Cleveland's professional sports.

I understand the heartache and bitterness Cavs fans have toward LBJ and I agree that LBJ could and should have never had his "decision" on ESPN for all to see but, he did give Cleveland bball fans a lot to cheer for by giving them a trip to the Finals, best record in the league for 2 seasons(?) and playoff appearances basically every year LBJ was there. And oh yea, just having arguably the best current player in the league in a Cavs jersey for several years.

@ "Ohio sucks it"- Who wouldn't want to play their ball in South Beach under Riley? You have 2 choices, Cleveland or Miami. 99.99/100 you're choosin Miami...Go easy on the Cavs fans.

No, I won't go easy on them. They deserve all of it for villifying someone who chased after not money or self glory but a team championship. They act as if they owned him--yes, as if he were a runaway slave. Even you can understand why he left. And you surely don't have to explain how Ohio sucks to me as I used to live there and know firsthand. I have relatives still in the Cleveland area and they act as if Lebron shot their dog and spit on their momma. Get real children.

And "The Decision" was done for charity (and yes ESPN ate it up too for their own purposes). It celebnrated his joining the Heat, it was not a screw Cleveland fans festival.

Shaq also came to Miami with much fanfare and left in a fury of insults. Yet Heat fans got over it as ownership stepped up and put together a new team for runs at the Finals.

Total bullshit of the kind I'd expect from a South Beach cross-dresser. All lies, of course. Stop talking out of your ass, if you're capable.

If he cared about a championship, he wouldn't have quit on Cleveland ON THE COURT, douchebag. He'd have LED THEM TO A CHAMPIONSHIP. Instead, he made a huge 'in your face' fuss out of leaving. We'll ALWAYS hate him for that, and he DESERVES hatred.

Second, the slave comment was ridiculous, offensive, and out of line. Apologize for it, worm.

Be that as it may, LBJ was born and raised there and he had the pulse of the city and he knew what it would do to all his witnesses and he still did it anyway. Like it or not, it still came off to the majority of people as rubbing it in the face of Dan Gilbert and the Cavs. I personally think it was classless on LBJ's part.

Yes, Laker fans(as I am one of them)put it behind them fairly quickly but Shaq left for much different reasons AND very importantly, he was never LA's native son like LBJ was to Cleveland. He and Kobe were having so many on and off the court problems plus Detroit just got through taking apart the LA dream team in the Finals in part due to Shaq and Kobe's feuding so many of us were sad yet relieved and ready to move forward without the Diesel.

You shouldn't hate LBJ. You guys need to accept the fact that while was and is arguably the best player in the NBA he is ONLY ONE MAN. Even his Airness needed Pippen and a solid supporting cast and LBJ DIDN'T have that. EVER. Moe Williams was the closest to "help" but even he faded in the big moments as he does to this day for the Clippers. He's not big time and LBJ needed another big time player to take some pressure off him.

I know he was Cleveland's messiah and all of that but you guys had unreal expectations of LBJ even though he did more than any one man could ever do all by himself. He put the Cavs on his back and carried them year in and year out only for you to now crucify him after all he's done for the Cavs especially, the state of Ohio and the NBA. Harvey, you're hanging on too tight man. It's ridiculous.

Consider yourselves fortunate he didn't pull an Eli Manning on draft day and refuse to play for the team that drafted him. It was always to be that the Cavs would never be able to build around LBJ to keep him there. The writing was clearly on the walls 2-3 years before his contract ran out and it was constantly being talked about. It wasn't as if it was sudden or anything. You had ample time to prepare and come to grips and accept Cleveland for what it is and moreso what it isn't. The market is always wanting and nobody wants to be in Cleveland especially pro athletes. Facts are facts. I'm sorry but you really do need to move on and support LeBron considering he actually gave you guys something to cheer about for a long time. That's priceless my friend, especially in Cleveland.

I read that wrong earlier but it's basically still the same thing that happened in LA. Shaq at that point had become a mercenary for hire and Miami was clearly happy to be rid of him but still, you can't compare Shaq/LA, Shaq/Miami to LBJ and Cleveland.

Oh, please...didn't have a team around him? That's just bullshit. Williams, Ilgauskas, West, Jamison, Varejao, even Shaq at one point were brought in to form a team around LeBron. He failed and quit, most notably in his lst playoffs for Cleveland against Boston.

Your hatred for Cleveland is not only amusing, it pretty much invalidates what you say. It's not about LeBron at all to people like you and your little buddy here, it's about trashing Cleveland.

Cleveland is a city that's had plenty of sports success in the three major sports played there, and will have more despite the hatred and naysaying of losers like you.

Get bent.

Wow. You're right to feel this way about Harvy Ohio. Maaan o man.

Harv, the players you mentioned on LBJ's old "team" would have almost NO chance being in the starting 5 on any other team in the NBA let alone a perennial playoff team and here you are saying LBJ with those same nobody's who LBJ carried should've wrapped up a ring or two or 3 and you say my points are not valid? And Shaq was a non factor and waay past his prime in Cleveland. He is not even worth mentioning and for you to pull that out says it all.

I don't hate Cleveland at all. I've never been there to make that personal judgement. I just know from hearing and reading what professional sports experts and athletes say about Cleveland and it's inability to attract top talent and if they actually did attract, their inability to keep them happy there.

I have 0 hate for Cleveland's pro sports as I dont care for baseball, my Bulls with Jordan kept whacking the Cavs relentlessly and my NFL team is in the NFC west.

I'm just saying your hatred towards LBJ is totally misguided and your tone to people who sympathize with you is unwarranted and unnecessary. Let it go before you get anymore bent pal.
