Yahoo! Sports: “Actually, he’s not hiding at all. He’s not flying low to the ground and he’s not slumming. Short of zooming back to Los Angeles (hard to do on a burned bridge) or Miami (ditto), he’s signed with the most storied franchise this league has. One of the more popular, one of the most prominent and one of two that you last saw playing official hoops a month and a half ago. The Celtics.”
I love Shaq! Always have, probably always will. I hope Boston can pull off another championship, it would be nice to see the Big Aristotle win another ring, then ride off into the sunset.
Cleveland Cavaliers: “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.”
Wow, that pretty much sums it up. The man could’ve just said “Hey, I’m going to Miami”, and I would have had zero to say about it. I’m sure a lot of folks feel that way.
There were a few choice paragraphs from the article, but this one is pure gold.
“I PERSONALLY GUARANTEE THAT THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS WILL WIN AN NBA CHAMPIONSHIP BEFORE THE SELF-TITLED FORMER â€˜KINGâ€™ WINS ONE”
I hope Cleveland is able to pull that off. Go collect some talent and get to work.
Yahoo! Sports: “The Championship of Me comes crashing into a primetime cable infomercial that LeBron James(notes) and his cronies have been working to make happen for months, a slow, cynical churning of manufactured drama that sports has never witnessed. As historic monuments go, this is the Rushmore of basketball hubris and narcissism. The vacuous star for our vacuous times. All about â€˜Bron and all about nothing.”
I used to think this guy was all right. Now, now I think he’s pathetic.
