On Thursday, free agent LeBron James will announce which team he will play for. This announcement will be on ESPN in primetime.
Why give this guy national exposure in the first place?
I'd like to know what LeBron has done lately.
When he asked for a player or players that would get the Cleveland Cavaliers over the hump to win an NBA title, management obliged. Getting Antwon Jamison wasn't going to get the Cavs deep in the playoffs this year. The franchise brought Shaquille O'Neal from Phoenix to deliver an NBA ring to the king.
Maybe Shaq's promise to the "King" didn't work. He said something almost identical in Phoenix. After that last one with Miami and the three with the Los Angeles Lakers, Shaq just didn't have it at his old age.
Before LeBron learns about being a champion, he has to first show some class. When Orlando put the Cavs out of the playoffs two years ago, LeBron didn't congratulate the Magic for beating them fair and square. That's the identity of a sore loser.
And who could forget him being dunked on by a college boy? LeBron's corporate daddies have some influence on where he'll play ball.
Like I said, who cares?
Remember, after LeBron's junior year in high school, he gave up football to focus on basketball. His mama didn't let him play football his senior year. He's a sissy!
So why does LeBron want to make this announcement in the New York area? Maybe he's going to sign with the Knicks. That team hasn't won anything significant since the 1970's.
I think LeBron should leave Cleveland. They haven't won a title in a long time. The Indians suck, the Browns suck, and the Cavs will suck if LeBron leaves. He's the only guy who ran the head coach and the general manager out of town.
I believe LeBron will help his next team get better, but it won't happen in the playoffs. They say Boston was too old, but they beat Cleveland. He'll be a rich man, but could be sitting at home watching the playoffs on TV.
So let's hear the announcement, LeBron. I wouldn't care if you signed with Sisters of the Poor. Chicago might not get him and neither will the Cavs.
I won't watch the announcement because I have better things to do.
