LeBron James

SHAME ON LEBRON JAMES…
SHAME ON THE MIAMI HEAT…
SHAME ON THE NBA…
LASTNIGHT ON NATIONAL TELEVISON LEBRON JAMES PREFORMED ONE OF THE WORST “DOG AND PONY” ACTS IN THE HISTORY OF PROFESSIONAL SPORTS…
HE ANNOUNCED THAT HE WAS JOINING HIS FRIENDS DWAYNE WADE AND CHRIS BOSH IN MIAMI…
IN DOING SO HE TURNED HIS BACK ON THE CITY OF CLEVELAND…AND THE FANS THAT HAVE SUPPORTED HIM FOR THE LAST 7 YEARS…
YOU MIGHT THINK SOME ONE WHO GREW UP IN AKRON OHIO WOULD FEEL SOME KIND OF LOYALITY TO THOSE PEOPLE…
YOU WOULD BE WRONG!!!
IN HIS WORDS…”I WANTED TO DO WHAT WAS BEST FOR LEBRON JAMES”…
AFTER MAKING HIS ANNOUNCEMENT ON ESPN…JAMES JUMPED ONTO A PRIVATE JET AND FLEW TO MIAMI…
IN THE MEANTIME…THE FANS BACK IN CLEVELAND SPILLED OUT INTO THE STREETS AND SET FIRE TO HIS NUMBER 23 JERSEY…
TO UNDERSTAND THIS KIND OF ANGRY AND FRUSTRATION…SIMPLY THINK BACK 9 YEARS…TO THE DAY THE VANCOUVER GRIZZLIES PACKED THEIR BAGS AND LEFT FOR MEMPHIS…
SADLY…THERE ARE NOW TWO NBA’S…
THE ELITE…WHICH INCLUDE…THE LAKERS…THE CELTICS…THE MAGIC…THE SPURS…AND NOW THE HEAT…
AND THE “NOT READY FOR NETWORK TELEVISION PLAYERS”…WHICH INCLUDES…PRETTY MUCH THE REST OF THE LEAGUE…
ONE LOOK AT THE ATTENDANCE NUMBERS…AND YOU CAN SEE THE TROUBLE THE NBA IS IN…
LAST SEASON ONLY 4 TEAMS SOLD OUT EVERY GAME…
COMPARE THAT WITH THE NHL…WHICH HAD 11 TEAMS SELL OUT EVERY NIGHT…
THE DIFFERENCE IS ONE WORD…”PARITY”…
ACCORDING TO COMMISSIONER DAVID STERN…LAST SEASON…THE NBA LOST $400 MILLION DOLLARS…
THAT DESPITE THE FACT THE LEAGUE GENERATES ALMOST A BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR IN NATIONAL TELEVSION CONTRACTS…
THE CURRENT COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AGREEMENT RUNS OUT NEXT SUMMER…AND MOST EXPECT A LOCK OUT…
THE OWNERS MUST REGAIN CONTROL OF THEIR BUSINESS…AND GIVE THE FANS THE MOST IMPORTANT GIFT OF ALL…”HOPE”…
WHAT LEBRON JAMES DID LASTNIGHT…MAYBE…”WHAT IS “BEST” FOR LEBRON JAMES”…
BUT MORE UNFORTUNATELY…IT REPRESENTS WHAT IS…“THE WORST”…IN PROFESSIONAL SPORTS…
