Alright guys, haven’t switched everything over to the “new” site yet but I couldn’t leave you guys hanging with this one!
So LeBron decided to go back to Cleveland. Did I think he was going to leave? No. Did I want him to leave? No. Am I pissed? Actually, no. I’m leaving all stats out of this one. It’ll just really be what I think and how I feel. So here’s what’s going on.
Cleveland is a young team and right now LeBron is like a cradle robber. Andrew Wiggins just drafted, Kyrie Irving with only three years under his belt. I just didn’t think Bron would want to go into a team still trying to mold themselves so to speak. But then I thought about it, this would be a good opportunity for “teaching”. Kyrie and Andrew could learn a bit from Bron Bron. They can all compliment each other as well. And then if they get Kevin Love! Good Lord!
But Bron knows that it will be a process. He’s said that he knows he’s the “old head” and that they won’t get a ring in the upcoming season. But as long as he knows what it is what can we say. I think that the whole Miami coming out party thing a few years ago (the one with the “not one, not two, not three…” speech) tastes a bit bitter in his mouth now.
I also had to think about some of the things that LeBron said about leaving Miami. In a nutshell he said that 1) going back to the Cavs was like coming home from college. He loved Miami and playing there and he even got two rings but it’s nothing like coming home. Which leads me into 2) he wants to finish out where he started. He was born in Ohio. He grew up in Ohio. He started his basketball career in Ohio. So, back to Ohio he goes.
Everyone also talks about the open letter from Dan Gilbert and how LeBron shouldn’t have went back because of that. For me, Gilbert was bitter so he wrote in his little journal and then decided to make his journal public. Nobody cares about your personal feelings sir. Obviously LeBron doesn’t because he’s back.
I am a little sad he left Miami. Anyone that knows me knows that I don’t really have a favorite team. Just favorite players. We know I love LeBron (if this isn’t your first time here then you know that’s my dude). I also like D. Wade though. I like Mario Chalmers (inconsistent self) and Chris Bosh is a good player, he’s just weird. But I’m not mad at all that he went to Cleveland. I would have liked to see him and Shabazz Napier play together though.
Sorry this wasn’t so much of a rant guys. And no, I’m not going to be a Cleveland fan. We all know I have a baby crush on Kyrie (well maybe more than a baby crush) and I will watch the Cleveland games, but I will still be watching Miami.
Guess I’ll just leave it at – long live the King.
