The LeBron James free agency saga is over. He announced to 10 million viewers that he is taking his talents to the Miami Heat .

Case closed? Yes, as far as free agency goes. But the talking continues.

Several remarks towards King James and his decision have been made. Mostly because he jumped ship in Cleveland . But should these remarks have been made?

Dan Gilbert, shortly after LeBron made his decision, is quoted in saying to fans on the Cavs website that "He quit. Not just in Game 5, but in Games 2, 4 and 6. Watch the tape. The Boston series was unlike anything in the history of sports for a superstar.”

Gilbert, obviously angry with James' decision, relieved some of that anger publicly. LeBron didn't quit. He just couldn't do it on his own.

But it didn't stop there.

Rev. Jesse Jackson claimed Gilbert sees LeBron as a "runaway slave". Now, the race card comes in. This statement is ridiculous. LeBron does not need Jesse Jackson to defend him. His talent on and off the court takes care of that.

These morons need to stop talking. Both sides said stupid things. Now, it's time to let LeBron go play his game and worry about other issues.
