lebron


I've never seen this type of narcissism in sports.

You'd think LeBron James was Michael Jordan, with ten championship rings.  The hype surrounding his choice of a new team and the hour long ESPN hype-fest earlier tonight was just unbelievable, considering James has done nothing in his career. At the high school level. Or the professional level. You wouldn't know it from his arrogance.

James' former boss, Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, agrees with me. From ESPN.com:
"In the letter posted on the Cavaliers' website Gilbert called the process on James' free agency "narcissistic, self-promotional build-up culminating with a national TV special of his 'decision' unlike anything ever 'witnessed' in the history of sports and probably the history of entertainment."
I'm glad Gilbert accused James of quitting in the playoffs, because he did.  The series against the Celtics was painful.

In the end, James chose warmer weather, lower tax Florida over cold ass, high tax Chicago and New York.  Sorry Cleveland.
