Random Thoughts

About the Lebron James Debacle and other things NBA...

1. To all of the people who are so up in arms because Lebron left Cleveland for Miami, don't you change jobs at some time or other? What's the difference?

2. Lebron went from being a media darling to being the third most hated man in pro-sports (with Tiger Woods and Mike Vick holding the #1 and #2 spots), proof positive that you either die a hero or you live long enough to become a villian.

3. Is there this much consternation over any of the other free agents (operative word, "free") who have chosen to go to other basketball teams?

4. Having a one-hour ESPN Special and then creating a media circus around your "decision" was not the best PR idea.

5. Donating 2.5 Million to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland isn't either. It's not going to clean this up.

6. While I can somewhat understand fans booing Lebron in Cleveland, why were New York fans booing him at Carmelo Anthony's wedding?

7. I'm not going to annoint Miami the next NBA Champions... these three guys haven't played together yet. People annointed the Cleveland Cavs the next NBA champions at the beginning of this year's playoffs and you see what happened.

8. Where is Allen Iverson when you need him?

9. Mike Brown and Danny Ferry got a raw deal, who speaks for them?

10. Somewhere, Kobe Bryant is laughing!

LBJ created this monster..He knew three months ago that he was going to Miami..He created this media circus and now he has to live with the fallout!

Rich Fitzgerald said...

Kobe is definitely laughing...as he gazes down at his new hand hardware.

The fans of NY are mad that LeBron didn't choose the Knicks. -- Oh well.

The whole thing was handled wrong. I mean really Lebron thinks he's just that fly to hold an one hour press conference? GTFOH! Glad he gave that money to charity but I heard it went to the Boys and Girls Club of Grenwich Conn. Umm why does one of the wealthiest clubs need that money. And why was the press conference in Grenwich anyway? WTF! There was soo much wrong in all this.
Hell, I live in NYC and never thought he was coming. The Knicks SUCK! He does have an option to leave MIA after two years just in time for when the NETS move to Brooklyn and into the new stadium. I think it's a real possibility that he comes to BK especially if he won a title in MIA and his relationship to Hova! But if he doesn't who the hell cares! It's business. If he wasn't performing up to par his ass would have been traded! He did what was best for him and there's NOTHING wrong with that! *Drops the mic*
