No I had not read your post at the time.....So are you saying that you have spent enough time with LBJ to say without a doubt that he is a "he's a narcissist who truly believes he's above everyone else. He's arrogant, when he was here...he was rude to fans and anyone who was "below him". He also quit on his team when he knew he was leaving...what kind of person does that? " The "fans" burned his jersey and the very owner of the team berated him publicly (and never apologized publicly) for the guy for basically going to work for another company after he had fulfilled his obligation. Dan Gilbert was extra petty because he I a business owner and Lebron brought him millions of dollars in revenue and net worth of the team, but then he acted like a 13 year old kid getting his heart broken when one of his employees left.
If you had to interact with hundreds of people on the daily do you think that is fair to say that not every one of them is going to come out of it thinking that you are just the greatest guy. The Man is human and is stretched in 1 million different directions on the daily and this is something none of us can comprehend. You can't make everyone happy, just ask any public figure.
Cleveland is lucky that Lebron is the bigger Man because no one outside of Cleveland would have blamed him for never putting on a Cleveland jersey ever again after those remarks 4 years ago from the owner that were left on the teams website until just a few days ago. The Cavs are instantly worth 300 million more right now and if a title is won probably 500 million. Cleveland's economy is going to benefit greatly from LBJ being there but fortunately Cleveland he loves his home just as much as you.
When Jordan left the Bulls to go play baseball the next year they one 55 games, a fall off of just 2 games from the championship season prior and still made the playoffs and won a series. The year after LBJ left the Cavs their record was 61 and 21. The very next year they went 19 and 63. Explain that......
