King James left Cleveland on a bad note, to say the least.
James promised them a championship and left Ohio without providing one.
Now with speculation that he quit during the Celtics series, rumors that he had been negotiating with the Heat for years and the taking down of his banner on the arena, James's legacy in Cleveland will be that of a traitor.
This move has earned him a top five spot in sport betrayals.

Head coach Bill Parcells led the New York Giants to two Super Bowl wins in five seasons.
After the 1990 Super Bowl win, Parcels retired from football—or so we thought.

After being an integral part of the triumphant 3-0 comeback against the Yankees in 2004 and helping Boston break its 86 year championship drought, Johnny Damon went to the Bronx.
