The problem with the LeBron “Decision”

Подарък иконатрапезни масиSince there haven’t been enough opinions shared about this topic, I’ll go ahead and add my own. This whole LeBron situation has disgusted me since he gave up in game 6 vs. the Celtics. I used to be a fan. I used to love watching the guy. Now I can’t stand him. I’m sure that will change over time, but this entire situation has just been a magnification of everything that is wrong with professional sports and its divas, and it is all embodied in a single player.

For the record, I have no problem with him going to the Heat. In fact, if you took out the way it was handled I would have applauded him, Dwyane, and Bosh for getting together and deciding to try and win a championship together. I’ve always thought it would be awesome if a few superstars got together to do this.

Here are my real problems with the situation:

    As I told a friend of mine last night, these were not the actions of a confident man. The monumental sorriness of this whole week has, very surprisingly, exposed LeBron as someone who needs a lot of attention and security. Strange.

    I don’t begrudge him wanting to win – the flip side of this is that he’s taking less money to go somewhere he thinks he can do so (until we know the contract terms, we can’t evaluate the tax impact). I don’t begrudge him leaving Cleveland, despite his deep ties to the region. As you made clear, he just did it in about the worst way possible.
