Say what you will about James and his decision, the only thing we know for sure is that he has left his kingdom and therefore surrendered his crown. This summer you're just Lebron James; nothing more, nothing less.
As a citizen I could give a rip about what James does. It's not like any of us are benefiting monetarily or otherwise from where he plays. But as a journalist and sports fan I have a huge issue with how James duped the city of Cleveland.
In the wake of the NBA's free-agent frenzy, Lebron's behavior just gave folks like me religion; a reason to devoutly root for the Heat's colossal failure.
Maybe LeBron James doesn't want to be the next Michael Jordan. Maybe he's content with winning a few championships with his friends in one of the coolest places in the country.

If anyone has stabbed the people of Ohio in the back, it's not LeBron James: it's Dan Gilbert. And if we didn't understand why LeBron would want to leave his home town of Cleveland yesterday, we certainly get it now. Talk about a bad sport.
On the day before all life in the sports universe as we know it stopped and lined up for their ticket to "Lebron Land", I read and listened to comment...
The loud and obnoxious Cleveland sport fans who feign hurt feelings from LeBron's foolish spectacle on ESPN speaks more about misplaced priorities than it does about character of a 25-year-old who wears shorts to work.
I was on a long drive last night and could not help but listen to the LeBron James media hype like every other basketball fan hoping they would get the prized free agent. Sure, if you get LeBron your team automatically becomes a contender.
