This wasn't even a decision I had to make, I didn't even have to think about this. I will be taking the talents of the athlete/ team/ sport that ESPN has made us hate this year to LeBron James. The Decision I made was the easiest one that I had to make.
It was even easier than putting Wade, Bosh, and James on the same team and saying we are going to win seven championships. The build-up to, the actual event, and the fallout of the decision made us all hate an athlete in a way that hasn't been done in a while.
I am not going to say what LeBron James did was right. He should have told Dan Gilbert that he was leaving. And say what you want to about the actual show, butt the actual show raised over $2.5 million dollars for charity. That is a case in which we are all winners. And the bottom line is, regardless of the fact that you hated the decision and everything about it, you still watched it, and the TV ratings show that.
You watched it because it was Breaking News that is as live as it gets. Could LeBron have handled it differently? Sure, but ESPN is the biggest culprit in making us hate the LeBrontourage.
But it doesn't end there, LeBron, stop talking, we will all start to listen to you and respect you once you get the only thing that will judge you in the end. That, is championship rings. Jordan has 6, Kobe has 5, you have 0. Fix that, and you'll be respected.That is something that ESPN has done right.
And everyone get over yourselves, the only games that matter are in April, May, and June in the NBA's second season. Who cares what a team looks like right now? They will all be completely different teams by that time.
