Lebron Sucessfully Burns Down The Building
I wrote an article a few days back titled, Lebron James: Burning Down the Building On His Way Out in which I talked about just a couple of the ramifications of 'The King's' big decision. Now that it's all said and done and Lebron has decided to join the Superfriends in Miami, fans are chiming in.
We've already had fans publicly burn their #23 swingman jerseys on ESPN. I mean, come on. I wear a L-XL... I would have gladly taken it off your hands.
Anyways check out this post from a frustrated casual fan. As a Bobcat fan who now has to deal with the Superfriends (I refuse to call them the Heat) I can relate to the Pistons analogy.
"I was already wearing thin on the entire league. But I'm officially done. It's a league dominated by teams with superstars. If you don't have one, then you're screwed. The balance is completely lop-sided and I can guarantee that the NBA lost a huge amount of fans tonight; me being one. Why would I ever want to see a Pistons game anymore knowing that they 100% have zero shot at coming away with anything? Or for that case, watch any team other than the Lakers, Celtics, or Heat?
I have never in my entire life seen a league as poorly run as this one. You have 30+ teams and only 2-3 have a legitimate shot at a title. You take away parody and you've lost the entire concept of team sports.
The entire superstar persona of the athletes in the NBA is enough to make me puke. I'm just glad this is over and I'm going on vacation in the middle of nowhere for a week. I would seriously go ape***** if I had to listen to any of this crap in the media this week.
F*** Stern. F*** LeBron. F*** anyhtign that has to do with the NBA. It may as well be the new WWE or WWF....or whatever the hell wrestling leagues are called these days.
I haven't posted on this message board in a while, so don't flame me for starting yet another cry baby thread. It just angers the crap out of me that this egotistical piece of crap is allowed to be bigger than the league itself. The long-term effects of this signing (and the two that coincide) could completely deteriorate the NBA...and it should."
