    FYI, NBA.com has summer league free trial today. So you can watch all today's games free, or you can watch past games.

    He used Miami to get championships and Miami used him to get championships. He took less money to get those championships and Mickey Arison paid a bunch of luxury tax to get those championships.

    Again, resisting the urge to be bitter about this. The reason I don't think he calls to Heat to warn them about this beforehand is probably because he knew they'd be bitter and didn't want them letting the cat out of the bag.

    And to be honest he may have words with Rich Paul about not giving the Heat the same courtesy call he gave Dan Gilbert (which reportedly came minutes before the SI piece went out).

    Regardless, we've got to get up off the mat.

    I know it's chaos now, but we can still sign Bosh. the max here is a lot more than Houston. He already won two rings. He can be a legend and hero here or he can be somebody else's third wheel.

    Then we still have a ton of money to spend. Compete for Deng/Ariza/Isiah Thomas. Maybe make an offer for Monroe.

    Fight.

    Great? All of his numbers were down, he was good but not max player good. No team in the league would even consider him a max player right now. I don't want to to turn this into a pissing contest about Wade, he's a great player but his career is probably at that point where he projects down its just the way it is.

    Windy is retracting..and saying that Lebron called Micky and Pat a few minutes before his essay posted on SI.

    Told them that he was leaving, and to log onto SI to read an essay he wrote.

    Brian Windhorst just corrected himself. LeBron James personally spoke on the phone with Pat Riley and Mickey Arison before the essay posted.

    Does Miami hang LeBron from the rafters? If not, then what about his jersey?

    I wonder how long LeBron knew he was coming to Cleveland. Gilbert meeting was a week ago. Seems like a lot of little things point to this being a decision that has been made for some time.

    This feels a lot more like the original Decision that anyone wants to admit.

    Apparently Rich Paul phoned up Dan Gilbert to inform him that LeBron is a Cavalier, and simultaneously LeBron himself called Pat Riley and Mickey Arison.

    Not asking for you to apologize, you feel how you feel, you say what you want, but as an outsider, reading some of your posts not just in this thread, you just come off like you're always angry. I personally don't care, just making you aware of how some might see you.

    If Riley isn't working a S&T to get Bosh max salary/contract and get back a player like Kevin Love, then he's lost in his own head. Like he's been all offseason, thinking that signing two donuts and a cup of coffee would be the changes LeBron wanted to see.

    That, and offering up same for Wade to wherever for whomever, to get him max money as well.

    Get some better players; pay off your guys who sacrificed money and stature.

    Best of luck LeBron. Thanks for the 4 years of amazing, exciting basketball and the belief we could win every single night. That was the best sports run of my life. I'm excited for what we will look like next year. He was a free agent. It happened. Oh well. Im upset, but at least he didn't force a trade out. I know I won't boo LeBron and wouldn't trade these heat teams for anything. That being said, I hope we **** all over Cleveland for for a years to come. Can't stand Gilbert, Verajao, or those losers that burned his jersey years back.

    100% agreed.

    We appreciate Shaq's contributions to our championship too, but he's never getting a banner.

    It's why I don't understand Bosh's rush to go to Houston to be a third wheel again.

    Stay here, bank an extra $30 million and be a legend/hero/icon.

    Maybe because he has a better shot of a title in Houston? I personally think (again, assuming Parsons is retained) that even if Lebron stayed in Miami, Bosh fits better in Houston than he did in Miami.

    Also, Bosh could be a legend/hero/icon in Houston as well. He is from Texas, and whomever could get Houston back to the Dream years would be revered (not to mention I think the Houston market is bigger than Miami's if I recall correctly).

    Bosh will be getting that Chinese money if he comes to Houston. Our players, even the role players, are getting deals from Chinese companies. The power of Yao Ming.

    you can't do that Nabo. Love is under contract, and Bosh is an UFA. Bosh has to WANT to go to Minnesota. No chance whatsoever.

    There was another video of a reporter in Miami on the air and a car drove by and the dude was yelling "**** LeBron" at her....

    I mean Miami has been classy for the most part but there are def *******s everywhere you go...

    hence this crap too, should have been arrested, how they not see who did this!?
