LeBron to leave Cleveland for Miami Heat



Published: Thu, July 8, 2010 @ 9:27 p.m.

LeBron James, the Akron native who thrilled Ohio basketball fans for most of his 25 years, is taking his show on the road.

James announced during a prime-time show on ESPN that he will suit up for the Miami Heat next season. He will join his former Olympic teammates Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, himself a recent Heat free agent recruit, in search of an NBA title.

James completed his seventh NBA season with the Cleveland Cavaliers with a 94-85 playoff loss to the Boston Celtics May 13.

James made the announcement toward the end of the 60-minute telecast.

--HE’S NOW CALLED “JESSE JAMES”-

LEBRON JAMES RODE INTO TOWN,
FROM HIGH SCHOOL, HE JUST CAME.

SAID HE LOVED OUR CITY,
WOULD BRING IT NBA FAME.

WAS NICKNAMED: “KING JAMES,”
HE CALLED HIMSELF IT, TOO.

OWNED THE WHOLE DARN CITY,
LIKE NO ONE ELSE WE KNEW.

HIS SHOOTING GUNS WERE BLAZING,
TO WATCH WE PAID BIG DOUGH.

BUT IN THE PLAYOFF PICTURE,
HIS CAVS HIT A NEW LOW.

LOOKED BAD IN THE FINALS,
SPURS WON 4 TO NONE.

THEN IT WAS ORANDO,
STOPPED OUR PLAYOFF RUN.

BUT BOSTON REALLY DID IT,
HUMILATION, SECOND TO NONE.

ROUTED TWICE IN CLEVELAND,
WAS EMBARRASSING, MY SON.

JAMES? HE TOOK IT LIGHTLY,
DIDN’T SEEM TO CARE.

NO ANGER AT HIS LOSING?
I THOUGHT THAT RATHER RARE.

NOW HE HEADS FOR MIAMI,
TO PLAY WITH TWO MORE STARS.

HANG AROUND THAT NIGHTLIFE,
CELEBRITIES AND BARS.

HERE, HIS STORY’S ENDED,
HE WALKED RIGHT OUT THE DOOR.

JAMES’ TOUR IS OVER,
LEAVING OUR TOWN SORE.

SO, IN THE FUTURE,
FOR US HE PLAYS NO GAMES.

THUS, A BRAND NEW NICKNAME,
HE’S NOW CALLED “JESSE JAMES.”

GOD BLESS

There's no "I" in team but there is an "m" and an "e", and its all about "me". Good luck winning in Miami, three stars and nine guys playing for league minimum. Won't be enough because Chris Bosh's true colors will show next season. (Hey, maybe he will do LeBron's mom, too!) He will be lucky if they get one championship.

Jim Gray should have asked him if he regrets giving up in Game 5 in their last series and if he would give up in Miami. Congrats, Lebron. You now share the pedestal with Artthur B. Modell! Hey, but before you leave, would you please take the knife out of Cleveland's back!

They say you are only as good as your last game. The Stanley Cup is in Chicago, the Lombardi Trophy in New Orleans. The Commissioner's Trophy in NYC.

Poor Willie is in the ICU. Big Ben is sitting for 4, possibly 6. Jeff Reed is one towel dispenser fight away from joining him. Lst year the Stillers couldn't even beat the Raiders. Sergei skated to Ottawa. Loved being on the Southside and cheering on the Habs.

I can't blame the guy for wanting to leave. Cleveland had plenty of chances to bring home a championship and they blew it every time. The guy wants a national title and you can't blame him for wanting to leave Cleveland. No one playing for the Cavs had more heart and wanted it more than LeBron. You guys are just mad because he left Ohio to move on to bigger and better things. Goodluck LeBron, bring home a ring.

wow, I really don't give a damn about basketball at all but I wanted to read what people were thinking about lebron leaving since it obviously is a news story. after coming in and reading the article and the comments I have come to one conclusion.

PENGUINBIRD HAS DEEP PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEMS.

Sports are a nice way to pass time and I am all about being a fan full of spirit when it comes to games and rivalries, but that guy just gives fans in general a bad name. hes the type of guy that no one, not even fans of his team, wants to sit near or talk sports with. I feel bad for anyone who knows this person. When the highlight of your day is something bad happening to another sports franchise or its fans, you really need to re evaluate your life. Half of the comments here are from this person. I can see maybe commenting on a story one or two times, but he is actually answering his own comments with comments! It's sad really.

And to prevent the accusations that I am a browns or cleveland fan, i can assure you that I am not.

as for lebron, at least I will be able to turn my tv or radio on now without hearing about him for a while. here's hoping he gets dan mariono'd for taking over the airwaves for so long.

gonchar went to ottawa, but penguins fans still like him and respect him. mario lemieux didn't draft a letter to fans condemning him for "turning his back" on them. there has never been loyalty in sports and there never will be. cleveland people need to get over it. it was his choice.

Im a Pens fan upset that Gonchar left but where we messed up was letting Scuderi and Gill leave prior to the previous season.
Im also a Lakers fan and this makes me happy because all this Miami publicity will just piss Kobe off and make him even more focused and the 3 peat will happen.
Cavs did everything to help LeBitch win and every trade and signing was authorized by him. Le Bitch quit in the Boston series because who his mother was sexing. Cavs tried to win while all these other teams depleted their roster to go after the free agents. Wade is the winner and LeBitch is trying to win in the Yankee fashion of plucking all the stars of the league.KOBE, MJ, BIRD, MAGIC, DUNCAN all had legitimate players with them but were the MAN and diddnt just quit because they were defeated.

The NBA has allowed free agency to determine which teams will be in the playoffs before season training even begins.
It is made up of stars with partially developed personal character who are treated like gods -- and so, it is being ignored by a large portion of sports fans.

Here's a guy who doesn't even let his employer know he is leaving -- behavior like a high school waitress at the local deli.

Why do you think he owes you anything. He gave Cleveland his best for 7 years. He scored 40+ points the majority of the games he played. How can anyone say he didn't try. He carried the Cav's. Some teammates they brought him. I love Shaq but he is a little old. Shame on his mom and teammate for distracting him from his goals. You don't mess with someone's mom. He deserves to go where he can get his ring. Thanks for the entertainment Labron.

woolyd,
You got it right. The Cavs organization and the NBA created a monster because nobody ever told him "NO". So, now we are seven years out and we get this childish, narcissistic behavior. He went from saying "we" in interviews, to "I", and last night to "Lebron James" , in the third person, when talking about himself. Everything you EVER needed to know about LeBron was on display when he wore the Yankees hat to Jacobs Field During the Indians/Yankees playoff game. He may be a great talent but we all know exactly what he is. The comment about not sharing the spotlight but each player having their own spotlight was priceless!

I don't see why people are making a big deal about this he was with them for how many years? But they never got any rings. This is his decision why do people feel like he should be obligated to inform everyone in a conference like this is so serious?

The way how I see it he was let down for 7 years no rings. And his pay could be alot more with another team he stuck in there this long it's time for him to move on and do what is best for him. People need to get over themselves it's his business.

Really??? Surprised Lebron left?? Question his loyalty?? Stabbing Cleveland in the back??

Have you watched the last seven years this guy played? Did you ever go to the games before Lebron was drafted? I was at the "Gund" arena before Lebron showed up at basketball games. I remember sitting in some company seats on the parque floor because no one else in the entire company wanted to go see the Cavs. They were horrible. I also remember sitting on the floor and hearing people have conversation in the upper deck of the arena!!! Lebron brought the Cavs back and sold the arena out for seven years!! He took the team further than any Cavs team went since the days of Jordan beating them in the 80's - 90's at Richfield Colliseum.

The Cavs would have multiple championships right now if they would have brought in some talent to support Lebron. Look at the team. Mo Williams - One of the most overpaid, over hyped Cavs player. Shaq - Way to late in his carreer and you really thought this would be the answer to the Cavs problems. Z - I love the guy for being there through the dark times and he was a decent player but absolutely not a Hall of famer by any means. If you look at the team currently, half of the players would not even be starters on any other basketball team let alone be bench players. Lebron was a one man show and elevated his teammates to play better and harder knowing no one was a star to compliment his talents. No Pippen and Jordan. No Majic and Kareem. Etc...

I would have loved to have seen a Championship be brought to Cleveland and to know how much the Cavs would have like to have won one. I always look at this comparison. Does Lebron want to be another Dan Marino (sorry for the football reference)? Marino is a Hall of Famer who had a ton of records at one time, but no Super bowl rings. I am 100% positive if he was asked if he would give up the records for a ring, he would say yes!! Just remember, records will fall but jewelry is forever in sports!! Lebron does not want to be another Dan Marino!! One of the best players to ever play the game with no championships.

Good Luck Lebron!! You will be missed!!

"This is his decision why do people feel like he should be obligated to inform everyone in a conference like this is so serious?"

Because that is not the way to go about making a free agent decision. Like every other player you inform teams that pursued you of your choice ahead of time, have a press conference at the teams building and move on. You don't go on national TV and make all the other teams that courted you wait for your answer in the national spotlight. All that was about was ego and that is very wrong. Very low class. And shallow, especially to the fans of Cleveland.

The biggest problem with players coming directly from high school to the pros is they deprive themselves of playing for truly great coaches. Watching that BS last night showed just how smart LBJ actually is and what his brand should be worth.

36atowngrad(21 comments)posted 3 years, 9 months ago

Why does everyone keep saying in some form or another that he was in Cleveland for 7-years, gave it his all and never won a ring?

Some people compared him to Michael Jordan, however the major differences are:
1. MJ waited for the right team to be built around him and never gave up on the Bulls even though they were bounced from the playoffs a few times. MJ always stayed true to his team and he proved the old saying "good things come to those who wait."
2. MJ never blatently gave up or quit playing during a playoff game (even when he was hurting) and always wanted the ball, as a great player does, or "closer" as alot of people call them.
3. MJ played in the NBA for 8-years with the Bulls before winning his first championship in the NBA. Before the NBA MJ played college ball with North Carolina for 3-years while Lebron came to the NBA right from high school. Given that comparison, it had taken "the greatest basketball player of all time" essentially 11-years to win an NBA championship after coming out of high school. LeBron is 7-years out of high school and does not have a title.

LeBron is a great basketball player with incredible talent but, in so many words, has placed himself into the category of a complimentary player now that he is going to play alongside a "closer" like Wade has proven to be.

Since he has made his rediculous "decision" on national TV he has proven to me that he will never compare to MJ since he has pretty much admitted that he needs to compliment other players to TRY and win a championship rather than taking the ball when the game counts and do it on his own like so many true greats before him have done. I know that MJ was his favorite player, as was mine growing up, but he has really proved to everyone that he did not deserve to wear No.23 on his back.

Personally, I feel that LeBron, Wade and Bosh had this free agency year set up from the time they all played in the Olympics together (maybe even when they came into the league the same year, but that is a stretch) and they all knew what was to transpire in 2010 due to some sort of collusion.

The signs may point towards the previous statement; he signed his extension in 2006 to play thorugh 2010 with a player option for 2011, Bosh's statement on the picture of him and Wade that someone is missing, did he give up in the playoffs trying to make the fans in Cleveland turn on him or lose faith so that his "legacy", that he has truely tarnished, would remain in tact when he signed with another team and using the fans reactions to him as an excuse that he let the city down?

Because of his "decision" LeBron is and will remain a good basketball player but he will never be remembered or referred to as an MJ, Isaiah Thomas, Bird, Magic, etc. He will be remembered as the modern day Scottie Pippen that had to supplement other key players just to TRY and win a championship that may or may not happen with the Heat.

ATOWNGRAD the comment about Pippen was well misinformed. Pippen was the best defender on the Bulls teams, led them in assists, and always played defense on the other teams best player. Also had it not been for a bad call (or several) in the 1994 Knicks series he would have led them to the Finals and maybe a 8 year reign.

It's time to move on after LeStab!
I don't know what Dan Gilbert thinks he can accomplish now, that he couldn't accomplish with Lebron. And if Boston couldn't do it with 4 (u forgot Rondo!!), who were all selfless, how can Miami do it with 2 (3??) overtly selfish players. I see the Lakers winning in 2010-11, and depending on Bynum...who knows how many more!!.
And it doesn't even matter what happens here in Cleveland, Miami or LA. What LeStab did to Cleveland and NE Ohio with that one hour, acid in the wound diatribe, was the most classless thing any NE Ohio athlete has ever done to this area.
When I heard that there was going to be a one hour special, I 'knew' he was staying. No one would humiliate their hometown on national TV for one hour, just to kick 'em in the groin, for the whole nation to see, in addition to Europe, who is NBA crazy!! No sir, no hometown hero would put his hometown to public ridicule for the whole planet to see.
This was going to be an Ohio love fest for the whole planet to see, and we were all going to have a "Lebron, we'll never forget you for not forgetting us." the very next day. And we would have all been tripping over ourselves to make sure we could reciprocate our love to Lebron.
Well, beyond a shadow of doubt, I'm very confident that we should have no trouble, absolutely no trouble at all, in reciprocating our love to LeStab!

It amazes me how everyone who used to worship Lebron having so much anger and nasty things to say about him now. He left because he had to what's needed for him to further his career as many of you have done. He gave Cleveland 7 years and they did nothing to add support to his kingdom as you all call it. The next time an interesting or lucrative decision come across you concerning your job or your family sit back and remember all of the hypocritical things that you are on here saying because I will be assuming that you turn down a promotion or advancement b/c you supposedly love your job so much or you don't want to stir up bad blood.

@ SLoppyk, way to drop some knowledge on those idiots who are on here bashing Lebron. He brought Cleveland back to a city that was dwindling and a place where many shied away from until his presence. He made businesses wake up from almost having to close their doors to places where you had to make reservations to even enter the joint. I guess they are all a little salty right now b/c now that Lebron has left the city things won't come as easy as it was. I will follow him to whatever team he plays for b/c I am not a Cavalier fan and never was; I am a Lebron James fan. Get your ring Lebron b/c it is due to you and I have faith in you b/c you have the talent to get it regardless of what these HATERS on here have to say. It amazes me how half of you probably never even attended a Cleveland Cavalier game yet you have so much to get on here and say. I attended several games at the Gund Arena and to see him play was always a treat. He single hand held that team down on his own many a games. If you are so mad at him leaving than why don't all you great people get out there and play for the CAVS yourself? No, I guess would be asking too much being that most of you sit with a can of beer shouting at the TV all day not healthy enough to step on a court; let alone run down one and attempt to shoot a ball through the air.

No one is criticizing LeBron for leaving, not sure where you people get that idea from, but it was in the way he left. You just don't do that to a city. And not just Cleveland, but Chicago and New York also. You do what every other free agent does. You notify the teams that are pursuing you of your decision and you hold a press conference at the new teams site. Thats all. You don't dog a whole city or in this case cities on National TV in front of millions of viewers. That was low class and shows what LeBron is all about. A 25 year old with a huge ego. I'm not a basketball fan but a sports fan and that was wrong. And speaking of a sports fan, if he wants to be a leader then he should have stayed with Cleveland or went to New York or Chicago and show his leadership to lead a team to a championship, but he is now a follower riding behind Dwayne Wade. He'll never be a leader.
And BTW if he you think he lost a bunch of money by going to Miami your sadly mistaken, once he changes his address to a Florida resident, then his salary and endorsements won't have any taxes with it and that is a huge savings.

I still think people would be mad no matter how he told people of his decision. Just look at some people who said how Lebron will never be on a team and win a ring ever in his lifetime.

Alot of other teams have people on the team to really backthem up unlike Lebron on the cavs they kepted on messing up. They could of been had rings but the team would keep choking up. People love comparing him to Miceal Jordan but even Micheal team backed him up.

But overall I wish Lebron James well and I hope the cavs get things together oneday.

Taxes are going up via the upcoming expiring tax cuts that were implemented during the previous administration - a very slick way to increase tax revenue.
And no, the wealthy were not the only ones who benefited from these tax cuts.
Not that it effected myself, but Obama slapped a 10% tax on suntan booth users to help cover Obamacare.

If you want to see what "free" health care is going to cost in the future, take a trip to Canada and notice how much more consumer products cost. I've seen this first hand since I visit Ontario and Quebec regularly on business. For example, $10.50 for a six pack of Budweiser in Ontario. Many Canadians close to the U.S. border will buy their goods in the U.S. and pay Canada import taxes, and still come out ahead.

He did not mention Hawaii's universal health care system, nor did he receive it free - he is not an employee in the State of Hawaii.

Judging by his statement, it sure didn't sound like he was endorsing universal health care.

JAMISON- ALWAYS BEST PLAYER ON AWFUL TEAM-NO DEFENSE,
VAREJO- AWFUL-NO TALENT
BIG Z- NOTHING TO SAY
BOOBIE-PLEASE
MO WILLIAMS- NO PRESENCE IN PLAYOFFS
DELONTE- TOO BUSY WITH LBJ'S MOM
HICKSON- NOT ENOUGH TIME- MIKE BROWNS FAULT
MOON- NOT ENOUGHT TIME-MIKE BROWNS FAULT

JORDAN DIDNT WIN UNTIL PIPPEN
JAMES WOULD NEVER WIN IN CLEVELAND-NOBODY WANTS TO COME TO CLEAVELAND- JAMES GAVE 7 YEARS- HE DOESNT OWE ANYONE ANYTHING. IT IS A BUSINESS DONT TAKE IT PERSONAL

@snyder....let me break it down to you, cause you just don't get it.....like other folks on here and other websites.

-MJ was drafted in 1984
-Pippen/Grant were drafted in 1987
-Chicago Bulls first title, 1991

I'm so tired of people complaining about LeQUITs supporting cast already. MJ, Pippen, Grant played TOGETHER for 4 years before they won the first one. That would be called CONTINUITY. Something LeCHOKE wouldn't give Cleveland because they were always trying to PLEASE him. Always trying to get his side kick. You expect your STAR player to take control while the team is gelling. That's what MJ did for 4 years, with consecutive conference final losses against the Pistons. He didn't QUIT, GIVE UP, LEAVE....he knew they would grow as a team. Unlike LeTRAITOR, who did QUIT, GIVE UP and LEAVE. Just shows that he's not a leader, a go to guy, a killer (unlike Jordan, Bryant, Bird, Magic, etc).

In the end, LeCANTGETITDONE would never commit to Cleveland and try to draw in some better NAMED players. And without the STAR's long-term commitment; why would anyone want to play in Cleveland???

RLMFAO....I THINK IF SOME OF YOU DROPPED YOUR CELL PHONE IN THE TOILET YOU WOULD BLAME THAT ON OBAMA TOO. WHAT DOES OBAMA HAVE TO DO WITH LEBRON LEAVING THE CAVS? THIS HAS BECAME TOO FUNNY BUT PREDICTABLE B/C THERE ARE SOME REALLY SMALL MINDED PPL ON THIS FORUM WHO CAN'T GET ON TO ANOTHER LEVEL W/OUT STILL BEING DISAPPOINTED THAT OBAMA IS THE PRESIDENT. YOU REALLY NEED TO GET OVER IT AND GET YOURSELF A LIFE LIKE WE ALL HAD TO DO WHEN WHATSY FACE WAS IN OFFICE BEFORE HIM. OHIO IS REALLY A SAD PLACE AND I DON'T BLAME LEBRON FOR LEAVING THAT CRAZY PLACE JUDGING BY THE CRAZINESS DISPLAYED ON HERE.

Typing in all caps doesn't get your point across any better.

Dimocrats seem to yell a great deal, hence the all caps. It was OK to Blame evrything possible on George Bush though!!!! To get back on topic, I no longer give a damn about LeGone James and his 3 ring circus. It is time to move on and forget about a Michael Jordan wannabee who never will!

It is not the move, it was the Circus atmosphere that he created and he did not have to diss Cleveland./

Ok now Illgauska or whatever his name is left the Cazvs and went back to Miami too. What does that have to say for the Cavs team? Obviously he thought Lebron was right for leaving and unlike some on here not mad b/c he understood the situation that they played for a team that is going nowhere no time soon. Blame the managers and the owners for the mess of a team that they created by making much money off of Lebron but being cheap and not spending it to build a better team around him. You are really about to get mad when the Cavs leave Cleveland altogether. To be honest, Cleveland was going broke trying to pay Lebron in the first place so he did them a favor.
