Why King James Runs out of Cleveland

Phillip SmallCorrespondent IMay 27, 2009

LeBron James is on the verge of making Cleveland the next New York or Los Angeles.   He has the marketing ability to turn a dull city into a tourist attraction. 

That is, if he were to stay in Cleveland. I believe he will leave, and I will tell you why.

Earlier this season, many may have felt as though he was destined to re-sign with Cleveland. They ran through teams, ending with an impressive 65-15 regular season. 

However, lack of production from a supporting cast will chase James away. LeBron will be LeBron, but he cannot go out and expect to play the entire game and lead the team in every statistic night in and night out. 

Mo Williams and Delonte West have been alright compliments. Daniel Gibson averaged 7.8 in the regular season and 2.8 in the playoffs. Ben Wallace grabbed 6.5 rebounds in the regular season and 2.5 in the playoffs. 

The total average production from the Cavs been has ranged from 2.42 to 3.25 from the regular season to the playoffs. Both numbers are drastic lows for a team desperate to retain the biggest talent of the decade. 

Now that the playoffs are almost over for the Cleveland Cavaliers, James may be singing a tune in a new city if management does not show the desire to get him some help.
