LeBron...Not a Cool Move

Ok so I'm a Knicks fan. And LeBron is my favorite player. So you can see how him joining the Knicks' biggest rival is an issue here. But there's more to it than that. Let's make a list.

1. You wanted to be put in the same breath as Michael Jordan? Try again buddy. Unless you average over 30 ppg for the next 10 seasons or a triple double, there's NO way you can be considered the greatest after joining Wade and Bosh...both of whom are in their prime.

2. You're 25 years old. You have time to win a ring for Cleveland. Why throw in the towel now?

3. The city of Cleveland (not just the team) may not bounce back from this for a long time. It shows with Dan Gilbert's response, which was highly unprofessional. Sure, LeBron you didn't owe Cleveland a ring, but you owe them a better departure than that. An hour long special on ESPN was a bit much. We respect the charity donation, but you could use other sponsorship money to do that.

4. Since when did the best player in the league joined someone else's team? Since when did two of the top 5 players in the league and one of the top 5 power forwards decide to join forces? What the heck is going on here. You're supposed to battle it out against each other, not join the beautiful weather and women of South Beach. That's not what MJ, Magic, Bird, or heck even Kevin Durant did.

I wish the best for you LeBron, but c'mon man. Let me know your thoughts.
