Especially after some in the media have made it seem that it was a guarantee these last couple years?

I can guarantee you that Lebron James will go to the Knicks.

How confident.

Like never posting in this section again confident?

Mind you I don't give a **** where he goes.

I won't.

I want to see him in NY, sure, but it's always a good thing for a city to have a lasting icon. I always like it when iconic players resign with their teams rather than forgoing loyalty and signing all over the place. Kind of the reason why I have more respect for Kobe than I do for Shaq.

I wouldnt hate him. You cant hate anyone for something like that.

I think Cavs fans will most likely boo if he leaves

I don't think the Knicks gave themselves a chance. They just needed to put together a decent roster for him to play with. Their cupboard is pretty bare, even with Amare on board.

He has no loyalty to NY. He said he loved the city, but I'm sure LeBron loves many cities. To get mad at someone for not signing with them is ridiculous.

Cavs > Knicks.

Your roster is horrible.

The only city that can really be mad if LeBron signs elsewhere is Cleveland. It's where he is from, it's the team that drafted him, yadda yadda.

He hasn't strung anyone much less an entire city. He said he loved the city, which he obviously does, but has never said he would play there.

And to truly believe the Cavaliers "suck" is foolish - at this point, they have far more to offer LeBron then the Knicks do.

If LeBron had signed with the Heat without the ESPN special, I probably would be far less angry, but the way he went about his business was immature, thoughtless and arrogant. These were people that had paid his salary and made him into this Messianic figure. His leaving wasn't going to sit well with those fans regardless, but had he just signed a contract behind closed doors and then held a presser where he explained that "Hey Cleveland, thanks for the years of support. I'm going to move on because the front office failed me/I made a pact to play with my best friends and Miami was the only place I could do it/whatever", I myself would have respected him for it.

The truth is, the act of taking a paycut to win a title is noble.

The truth is, LeBron James is still probably the best player on that team.

The truth is, Miami is still a favorite to win that division and is still a team that has a great chance to win a title (although as they're constructed now, a grizzled, hard PF would eat Bosh alive and any team with a decent PG could be a nightmare for them).

But the truth is, he handled the situation with such clumsiness, ignorance and downright unprofessionalism that it's hard to want to find any objective positives in this deal for him or for the Heat. He punched Cleveland (the fans, not Dan Gilbert or the Cavs organization... I feel no sympathy for greedy owners and clueless GMs) square in the collective testes. So yeah, I was probably way, way, way tougher on him than I objectively should have, but I'm not a journalist. I'm a message board poster. And I'll still never root for him again as long as I watch the NBA.

Still though, the idiot Knicks fans who crowded outside Carmelo Anthony's wedding just to boo him? **** them. Hard. In the ass. They need to get a life. Oh, boo hoo, LeBron didn't choose New York. You're not entitled. You don't get to feel the same way Cavs fans do. And whether they were Knicks or Cavs fans... you don't **** with a guy's wedding, especially a guy who had nothing to do with the whole ordeal at all.
