    The year before LeBron's rookie season, The Cavs ranked dead last in the league in attendance.

    During LeBron's 7 years there, they sold out most games.

    I don't know what you think LeBron owes you or Dan Gilbert.

    -----

    Greatest accomplishments of the star-studded supporting cast LeBron had in Cleveland.

    Jamario Moon - 4 year career. Former Harlem Globetrotter.

    Anthony Parker - 4 year career. MVP of the Israeli pro league.

    Antawn Jamison - 11 year career. 2-time All Star. Sixth Man of The Year Award.

    Mo Williams - 5 year career. LeBron sidekick. Attended an All Star game as a replacement for Chris Bosh.

    Shaq - Old. Respected for past glory tho.

    None of LeBron's teamates will make an All Star team again in their careers.

    How many did Pippen make? How many did Gasol make? Rodman? Lakers' Shaq?

    The claim that LeBron prevented Cleveland from bringing in players is preposterous. Why, because he wouldn't commit to the team long-term? Yet you, Dex Lewis, were absolutely certain LeBron would stay in Cleveland 5 days ago. Now yet again you claim to have first hand knowledge of the Cavs' front office inner workings. After the ESPN special did Danny Ferry call you up and complain about how LeBron tied his hands? LOL fuck outta here

    LeBron gave them an ultimatum to get good players around him to win a title or he's gone. Now he's gone.

    Was the team limited with their money? Yes. Did they make poor moves with the limited money they had? Yes.

    Yes.

    He wanted Jamison, Hughes, Shaq, etc.

    I thought they brought in good people to play with him, not their fault it didn't work. They probably took too much advice from him, he's not a GM. Should have left it to the GM and let him stick it out.

    Yea because former first round bust Danny Ferry knows more about basketball and who LeBron James would play well with more than LeBron James....?

    Think.

    edit* Star players on EVERY team in the NBA are consulted about moves. They're the ones on the court. But they still don't do the GM's job for them. Ultimately the GM is responsible for who he brings in, and the GM knows it. Ferry isn't blaming LeBron for his moves.

    Your argument is ridiculous.

    That's rediculous. A Gm is a GM, a player is just a spoiled brat. Not even Michael Jordan had that much pull with who he was given, he seemingly made do with who they gave him. I don't know if LeBron was a cry baby but his fans make him seem that way.

    You don't know what you're talking about. Jordan was consulted on personel moves all the time.

    I don't know if the males in the Cavs' front office were bitches but their fans make them seem that way.

    He wanted Amare this year and they gave him Jamison. That's like expecting an Infiniti but you got a Daewoo instead.

    So because he wanted Amare, the suns should have traded him because Lebron wanted him? There is more in play that just what he wants. Are you crazy? Did Amare even want to go there?

    The point is LeBron didn't get what he wanted. Bottom line. (You argued LeBron had too much power, remember?)

    And guess what - he manned up and fulfilled his contract anyway.

    He didn't complain in the press. He didn't burn Dan Gilbert's or Danny Ferry's picture.

    No - he simply honored his contract and won 2 MVP's back-to-back AFTER taking the Cavs to their first Finals ever.

    Now that LeBron's a FREE-agent, he finally has the power within himself to get what he wants.

    Being FREE, he went out and did what he wanted, what was best for him.

    America's based on the idea of freedom.

    Instead of burning his jersey and trashing him online, Cavs' fans should demand the removal of all the banners LeBron hung in the rafters for them.

    Hope this doesn't happen -

    These three guys just took the arms race started by Boston in the summer of '07 to a whole new level.

    In nuclear war, we all lose.

    They'll blow up the league.

    Eh, Lebron bolted because he wanted to play else where. He can't blame the team nor can they blame him. They should just both move on.
