    Henry, you've got it all wrong.  You need to refer to yourself in the 3rd person!

    sequence of events- bronnie puts on an embarrassing media circus parade the likes of which we have only seen in tin pot media dictatorships like cuba or venezuela, or espn.  bronnie made an absolute farce of himself and his decision to leave cleveland.

    remember when durant twitted that he just signed an extension with OKC and was going back to sippin a soda and playing his vid game?  imminently more simple and classy.

    lebron did the elaborate circus and then gilbert sounded off.

    did you watch the east conf. finals?  games 5 and 6 in particular.  re-watch them at any cost if you were not paying attention.  lebron quit.  not just a little bit, but really hard.  it was a shocking embarrassment.

    gilbert deserves some of the blame because he did nothing but give lebron more and more slack hoping he would mature.  instead lebron got more and more yes men around him and got a bigger and bigger head and lost sight of the real goal- winning.  not money to local business and therefore i am a God, but winning.  that's all.

    I really think the way he left more to do with the criticism than the fact that he left.  LeBron hasn't taken the high road yet, and his actions were petty and he basically stuck it to the fans in Cleveland.  He comes across as having a tin ear when it comes to public relations, and image is everything in the NBA, especially for the guy that will be the most visible face of the league after the current crop of stars leave (KG, Kobe, etc).   

    Miami was able to clear the cap space to sign 3 good players and Riley deserves the credit.  If 3 (more like 2) superstar players and 1 pretty good big man want to play together and take a little less money for doing so, then I think the criticism is not as harsh and is unfounded.  When Barkley is ripping you for changing teams for the chance at a championship then that's akin to the kettle calling the pot black. 

    LeBron should just shut his mouth and play.  Let his play do the talking from hereon out.  he is losing the PR war.

    i agree that the decision was terrible...terrible for espn, terrible for lebron, and dreadfully awful for jim gray

    i wish that lebron's personality was more like durants...but its not...and now he plays for my team...what can you do? im sure there were a ton of celtics fans who hated seeing sheed in the green because of who he is and not what he added to the team

    the problem with lebron speaks to the overall culture around sports...more so than ever its all about "me" and this culture gets reinforced in the eyes of adoring fans who throw money at these athletes for doing nothing more than playing a game...and its only going to get worst...it is what it is and what can you do when these guys have no clue what the definition of the word "no" means?

    Lebron should get himself a new posse or "team" or handlers or whatever else the camp followers of modern celeb-athletes are called.

    Or maybe he can try being his own man.
