I hate your stinking guts; you make me vomit. You’re scuuuum between my toes.
Love, The city of Cleveland
For so long Squire James has preached the value of loyalty. He has said over and over – and, in fact, claimed to be “loyal” again on Thursday night – that the word is the most important thing to him. He promised to bring a championship to the city of Cleveland and vowed to never give up until his goal was reached.
With Thursday night’s decision, James shocked the city of Cleveland and exposed himself as a quitter, a liar, a traitor and just another arrogant, egotistical athlete. He then proceeded to thank the entire Cleveland organization and fan base for allowing him the opportunity to “share his talents” with the franchise for the last seven years. And to that, I say Thanks for nothing, LeCoward.
Yes, he has provided the franchise with highlight after highlight, dunk after dunk. But with the same end result: loss after loss. He’s a winner; not a champion. And his legacy will be forever tarnished – in Cleveland and throughout the NBA. He preaches team over individual. Yet he thrusts himself into the spotlight whenever he gets an opportunity and makes everything about LeBron.
He took the easy way out. And, for that, his legacy will forever be tarnished. Farewell, LeBron.
Stay tuned for Patrick Allen’s take on this decision. I’m at a loss for words tonight.
