LeBron James' Legacy Is In Jeopardy

Everyone had been waiting for LeBron James' decision. There were sources that says he is staying in Cleveland, next day going to New York, next day going to Chicago, and then finally Miami.

In the beginning of the free agency, they said it was possible that LeBron James, D-Wade, and Chris Bosh would play together. But then, that possibility started to change continuing into the free agency. Now, it happens that all three are with the Miami Heat.

In my opinion, that I think LeBron James should have gone to the Chicago Bulls. Chicago already has a complete team. Okay, they might not have a D-Wade or Chris Bosh player, but they have players that are stars. Derrick Rose is on the rise with Joakim Noah and Luol Deng. Add to that, from free agency, Carlos Boozer.

LeBron James' legacy is now in jeopardy because he didn't stay with one team. I understand that he was with the Cavs for seven seasons, but I believe you have to stay with one team and build around that team.

He said he is doing what is best for him. Yes, going to the Miami Heat would help him get a ring, but it seems like he is self-centered. I respect LeBron James. Staying with Cleveland would have helped him—they just needed to add some players.

He gave up a lot of money from Cleveland to go to Heat for a ring.

Kobe Bryant never went to another team. He wanted to be traded, but he stayed with the team and now look at them. The Lakers build their whole team around Kobe and don't always go to him.

I mean, if LeBron would have gone to Chicago or Cleveland, there could have been a rivalry between Bulls and Heat. There still can be one, but it won't be the same. There are still the Celtics and Magic as contenders.

On top of his decision, having a show to announce he was leaving his faithful fans was a little too much. So, I'm still in shock with LeBron going to the Miami Heat.
