Great column by Bill Simmons on all of this, and I agree with most of his points. (long, by the way)

Not buying the Heat stuff at all, but we'll all find out very soon....

I refuse to give this attention whore any ratings by watching his self centered bullsh!t show. I'll go onto nba.com at 10pm to see where he ended up signing though.

Well sports in Cleveland are effectively murdered for awhile. At least the Knicks are getting something for Lee and still have cap space to get somebody else or wait for Carmelo next year.

Cleveland's best player is Delonte West. Chew on that. Does that team win 10 games next year?

Cleveland now has an f-ton of cap space to try and get someone...anyone...to come in and play. Their ceiling now has to be 30 games and a lottery pick if they fail to do so, and that city now has yet another kick to the balls of sports. Miami and Orlando now become your top two teams in the East, with Boston chipping in there depending on guts, heart, coaching, and how soon Perkins can come back.

If I'm Boston, Perkins is out for a while, and Wallace retires, I have to look at a Shaq-type player to play tough physical minutes. Shaq can single-cover Howard. I just don't know if even Boston has the firepower to stop Miami in a 7 game series.

Chicago, Milwaukee, and Atlanta are pretty much the second tier. Everything after that is wide open and depends on a lot of x-factors going through. But the teams that get rolled by the Florida teams are pretty much up in the air. Cleveland is out, Toronto is out, Indiana still sucks, and I think Washington is maybe one year away depending on how good Wall really is and what return you get from trading Arenas. The last two playoff spots will come down to the Knicks, Nets, Pistons, Sixers, and Bobcats, but you might as well pick it out of a hat, since they'll be out within four-six playoff games anyway.

Boston replaced the corpse of Sheed with Jermain O'Neal of all people. I'd rather have shaq for god's sake. O'Neal was just awful for Miami last year

LOL this is all so fun to just watch..... Check out this letter the Cavs' owner just sent out:

Dear Cleveland, All Of Northeast Ohio and Cleveland Cavaliers Supporters Wherever You May Be Tonight;

As you now know, our former hero, who grew up in the very region that he deserted this evening, is no longer a Cleveland Cavalier.

This was announced with a several day, narcissistic, self-promotional build-up culminating with a national TV special of his "decision" unlike anything ever "witnessed" in the history of sports and probably the history of entertainment.

Clearly, this is bitterly disappointing to all of us.

The good news is that the ownership team and the rest of the hard-working, loyal, and driven staff over here at your hometown Cavaliers have not betrayed you nor NEVER will betray you.

There is so much more to tell you about the events of the recent past and our more than exciting future. Over the next several days and weeks, we will be communicating much of that to you.

You simply don't deserve this kind of cowardly betrayal.

You have given so much and deserve so much more.

In the meantime, I want to make one statement to you tonight:

"I PERSONALLY GUARANTEE THAT THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS WILL WIN AN NBA CHAMPIONSHIP BEFORE THE SELF-TITLED FORMER ‘KING’ WINS ONE"

You can take it to the bank.

If you thought we were motivated before tonight to bring the hardware to Cleveland, I can tell you that this shameful display of selfishness and betrayal by one of our very own has shifted our "motivation" to previously unknown and previously never experienced levels.

Some people think they should go to heaven but NOT have to die to get there.

Sorry, but that's simply not how it works.

This shocking act of disloyalty from our home grown "chosen one" sends the exact opposite lesson of what we would want our children to learn. And "who" we would want them to grow-up to become.

But the good news is that this heartless and callous action can only serve as the antidote to the so-called "curse" on Cleveland, Ohio.

The self-declared former "King" will be taking the "curse" with him down south. And until he does "right" by Cleveland and Ohio, James (and the town where he plays) will unfortunately own this dreaded spell and bad karma.

Just watch.

Sleep well, Cleveland.

Tomorrow is a new and much brighter day....

I PROMISE you that our energy, focus, capital, knowledge and experience will be directed at one thing and one thing only:

DELIVERING YOU the championship you have long deserved and is long overdue....


Dan Gilbert
Majority Owner
Cleveland Cavaliers

LeBron James is an a$$hole. Sry, thought I'd drop in and say that. He gave up on that city. And of course he couldn't do it quietly. He had to drag Cleveland fans through the mud, while they waited on him. And he dragged them with him as went on National TV to publicly humiliate the City.

But thank you Lebron. The NBA is now a joke forever. The fake cap has made things stupid but now that teams can't even keep their own players and one team can sign 3 superstars in one offseason, the league is now 100 percent a joke.

PS: Can the man stop referring to himself in the 3rd person?

I used to really like LeBron James. He seemed different than the prototypical NBA superstar.

Past tense.
