The reaction of Kobe and Nash are great! Even Meta has that "i give up" look http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nba--lebron-james-seizes-moment-to-shut-down-kobe-bryant--delivers-his-best-performance-of-season-104411013.html

We may have lost the battle......but not the war.
Sorry,suck at attatchments. Linked the article,hope that's ok.
I didn't downvote it, I actually upvoted it. Someone else dv'd it.
On topic: LMAO! Kobe is like, "Oh shhii.."
One reason to like LeBron: Buckeyes fan!
I have a question. If LeBron wanted to, would he still have eligibility to play for the Buckeyes?
I wish! But I don't think so because he has an agent.
Nobody kills the basket like LBJ. I predict he'll be a CAV again, and bring Cleveland a Championship.
"Your Mouth Keeps Signing Checks that Your Body Can't Cash"
That would be awesome.
The CHASE is on...
Yes, Cleveland fans need to get over it. What did they expect him to do - play his entire career for an organization that wouldn't pay for a championship? He just needs to get a couple more and then come home. Hopefully the Cav's brass will give him some help next time.
LeBron's college eligibility was blown before the end of his high school career. It took a lawsuit (which was dropped immediately after his final game) to allow him to play in the state tournament. OHSAA had discovered LeBron had already gotten money from future endorsement deals.
Forgot about that.
Not a smart comment, buddy. You can criticize all you want about the talent around him, but the Cavs had one of the highest payrolls when he was here. They did try.
Then they spent their money unwisely, "pal." Name an actual star on those teams besides LeBron. Then take a look at the groupings of stars on other teams building dynasties over the last four or five years. Had they gone after any one of the great big men who have moved in the last couple of years he would have stayed, IMO.
BTW, I never address anyone as "pal." It is as offensive and condescending as "buddy." I just did it this time to prove a point.
He is the best of all time when it is over. The stats will tell the story.
You're only proven my point. I agree the talent wasn't there, but you made a false statement and I called you out on it. Payroll was never an issue for Dan Gilbert.
Have a nice day, friend!
Few will acknowledge that just cause Jordan was the first international superstar. He will go down as one of the greats, but the leaving of Cleveland "waved bye, bye" to the G.O.A.T.
One more thing, they went hardcore after players, thru trades and free agents. Because it's Cleveland, they could never get free agents and unfortunately they didn't have the trade assets to make the big time trades. If you want to rip on their management, rip on their drafting of Luke Jackson and some of their other miserable picks.
I'm not a Heat or Cavs fan, but I've always liked Lebron. Anyone who wouldn't want him on their team is a crazy person. As for the "Decision" I can only speculate about all the motives for it, what I do know is it made a ton of money for children who need it, and that's all I really care about.
P.S. I really hope he NEVER ends up on the freakin' Lakers!

Can't just run around like a nut!
Clev was forking out the $$$$ - the offer they made and committment to organization was there -
they just fell short on the court and with getting a few players to Cleveland...
but it has nothing to do with the organization or ownership willing to pay or their commitment.
ownership - The Cleveland Clinic - and the entire business community was all in for Lebron.
how we forget the 60 win seasons or drive to the end.
