Lebron Left Cleveland... And?

Updated on July 9, 2010


So all sports fans know that last night, in a horribly embarrassing fashion (to Ohio fans) Lebron went to the Miami Heat. I will admit, I was mad, hurt, frustrated and above all crushed. I said thing I should have not said, God please forgive me of that. But it’s the reality. He feels he can not win a ring by himself. He’s tried for 7 years. Does that make him a coward? No. Am I grateful for the money, fans, ect. He brought to Cleveland? Yes. Am I shocked he left? I was, but not anymore. I don’t know Lebron, I’m not his friend, and I don’t know how he is in real life… But I know winning a ring is more important then keeping promises and loyalty. When you hear Basketball, Football & Baseball, you think of rings, championships and winning. I can’t fault him for wanted to win. He didn’t think he can do it in Cleveland, by himself. Would the fans have wanted him to stay and not win anything? That’s just being a poor sport. He was the reason I started liking Basketball but he won’t be the reason I stop. People all across Ohio are burning or have burned his jersey, merchandise, shirts and even shoes. I’m sure as Cleveland feels betrayed, he does as well. I don’t care that he left. The way he left was wrong and just ignorant but that was his chose. People need to remember, his skill never lead him to grow up. He’s still a 14 year old in a man’s body. No one will know what its like to be Lebron James, only Lebron and God. I am a fan of the Cavs, not Lebron. It took him leaving for me to realize that. For a long time I supported Lebron and the Cavs. I wasn’t a real fan of Cleveland. I was more a less riding the gravy train Lebron created. Not anymore. I am a Cleveland Cavaliers fan. Win or lose rings or no rings: Lebron or no Lebron. What Cleveland fans should focus on is that WE made the Cavaliers, not Lebron. He is gone. The Cleveland Cavaliers still remain. I will never understand what its like to be and NBA all-star and honestly I don’t want to know. The things I hear, the pressure they go through, they can keep it. I am happily a Cavs fan and that’s that. Chicago shouldn’t be mad, New York shouldn’t be mad… He is one person. To think just because of getting one person to come to your team, it will change everything, is foolish. Cleveland proved that. It doesn’t take a player or two to win, it takes a TEAM. Will the Heat dominate the NBA? People are saying they will now, but no one knows for sure. Skill levels of players change every year, every team they join, and every game the play. Lebron went to the Heat simply because he has his greatest chance of getting a ring. I can’t fault him for that at all. I’m not a fan of his no longer because he simply isn’t on my team. I still admire his skill but I don’t admire him as a player. He will always be one of the greats no matter what team he is on. Cleveland really needs to let go and rebuild. He promised something he couldn’t give us; he went back on his word. It took him 7 years to realize that he was going to break a lot of hearts but that’s the reality of being a die hard fan of “player” not a team.


My advice to Lebron:

Don’t ever make another promise you can’t keep. Don’t rely on yourself so much that you ultimately crush thousands of hopes and dreams. And because there are a lot of people who will call you names and burn your jersey; you mise well move to Florida. People aren’t going to understand you, most never will. Focus on your family and what’s best for YOU. Above all, I hope God is in your heart as He is in mine.


My advice to Cleveland:

Don’t be a “fair-weather” fan. Don’t let one person leaving ruin you love for basketball. Win or lose, be a fan. Support Cleveland, if not, more now then ever. We lost a great player but that doesn’t mean we can not do great things with our sports teams. After all, it is the CLEVELAND CAVALIERS. Not Lebron’s team. Be a true blue fan. Don’t be a fan only because we had a great team. Lakers fans will always be Lakers fans, Kobe or no Kobe. Bulls fans will always be Bulls fans, even with Michal Jordan clearly gone. Get your anger out now and focus on supporting a team not a player.


Lebron left Cleveland… And?
