The Departed




WE ONCE BORE WITNESS TO SOMETHING PHENOMENAL


WE BELIEVED IN DESTINY


OUR TIME HAD FINALLY COME


OUR TIME...IS UP


I'VE COACHED MY KIDS INTO BELIEVING THAT THERE IS NO "I" IN TEAM.


ITS ALL ABOUT THE MINDSET, AND SETTING GOALS IN WHICH TO STRIVE FOR


ITS ABOUT LOYALTY


APPARENTLY "I" WAS MISTAKEN

Yeah - I'm from Canada, but was still disappointed to see the move. 'We' lost Chris Bosh to the same team. :(

*sigh* LeBron James should have stuck with Cleveland.

Love this post. This is why I still love college basketball more than the NBA - - because the team is still the focus.

I don't really follow basketball-I used to be a football fanatic. I'd watch with my mom (who was a college b-ball fanatic). Then, life happened and I got out of the habit of watching for many years. In recent years, I've tried to get back into watching, but there doesn't seem to be any team loyalty. It's all about chasing the money...and individual fame...

I don't know much about sports, but this doesn't sound like good news. Sorry.

There will always be hotdogs, after glory and money. But team players nuture friendships that last longer than fast-evaporating money.

I mourn with you but the true spirit of sports die when money becomes involved.

Thanks for the nice words on my blog. They, too, came at a time when they were needed, Roland

Thanks for your comments following my emotional rant.
While I've hinted of it at times, but have purposely refused to make light of it, professional athletics is unfortunately a passion of mine...or perhaps a curse.
We live an hour south of Cleveland, and have enjoyed watching LBJ since his childhood days at Akron. To leave a storybook romance that we've created for him here, where he was born and raised, proves beyond reasonable doubt, that professional sports has sunk to a new low.
It's sad, really. We place these athletes on a podium, allow them limitless power, and in turn they spurn our trust at a moment's notice.
...pathetic

I didn't have a problem with his decision to go to Miami. In many ways he did the opposite of what greedy, all-about-me stars have done recently. Instead of taking the money, he chose to play somewhere he thinks he has a better chance of winning. Instead of going where he would be "the man," he appears willing to share the spotlight.

That said, the way he did it was classless and juvenile. You don't throw your home town under the bus like that by embarrassing the team on national TV. And you don't refuse to return calls and texts from an owner who bent over backwards to accommodate your every whim. And you don't do all of this in front of a gymful of kids.

The guy turned himself into the NBA's villain by his actions and I don't see how he keeps an office, much less a home, in the Cleveland area. But that's the kind of decision you make when you surround yourself with yes-man high school dropouts.

And I'll talk sports anytime.
