I must be in the wrong profession for I am not even a real sports fan to know that Cleveland was never a choice for Labron James. This man totally lost his confidence and could not even almost a buy a basket in those last two games of the NBA Finals, for he was beat down by the tabloid reports of his mother's relationship with one of his own teammates. There is no way in hell that Labron couils concentrate when he had to come and look a teammate and try to play everyday knowing he slept with his mother??? Labron James had to get the heck out of Cleveland for a fresh start and not having to deal with the everyday tabloid distractions.
Next, several hours BEFORE the prime time annoouncment by James, a whole number of media sources were reporting that some concierge somewhere had just booked 6 Florida beach houses for Labron James for "some kind of celebration" this weekend! Now what kind of celebration would he be having in Florida this weekend other than hios Florida announcement. So once this was reported hours earlier, the national media kept on with the "alleged" suspense that the announcement was going to be revealed during the prime time announcement.
I was already watching some other programs by the time Labron came on. Best wishes to Labron for he needed a fresh start away from Cleveland.
Watching the re-runs of the announcement I saw where he said thathe finally made his personal decision after talking with his mother. His mother probabaly apologized to him for her personal intimate relationships affect him and his game and knowing that the tabloids and TMZ's of the world would never let the issue rest so he would never have beenable tro get his game back in Cleveland.
Finally, just to show you just ONE example of what Labron would go through is this entry I pulled from my Facebook page -- "Delante West to LeBron's mom "baby he is gone, I thought he'd never leave, let's get back to business," is why Labron was not coming back to Cleveand. So the mainstream media of Clevelkand can than Labron for seven good years and wish him well and just know that the "TMZ" style reporting of Labron's intimate relationship with his teammate and others at the Championship Finals laid the ground work that despite the legendary like of Betty White (lol) Labron James was never thinking of Cleveland and knew he had to go in order to get him game back.
