I think so too, but I also take issue with that. When you have to opportunity to raise a lot of money for the Boys and Girls Club (something he had done many times before), why would you not do it? But I guess all these Cavs fans would rather not have to hear LeBron say it live than give money to charity...
Dude, there's no way around it. The way he handled his move to Miami was tacky, self-centered, and classless, regardless of whether or not any money went to charity. If the guy was dying to help out a good cause, there were plenty of better ways he could have done it. And I would be pretty upset if I was a Cavs fan, too.
The only thing that upset me about The Decision was how they kept insisting "LeBron will announce within the first 10 minutes" beforehand but it actually took like a half hour. The way Cleveland fans, Cavaliers ownership, and the national sports media (on behalf of the poor, aggrieved, horrifically victimized Cleveland fans of course) reacted afterwards was beyond absurd.
Cool story bro. If you can't understand why Cavs fans were a little perturbed, you're probably an idiot.
roi being on topic.
I can understand Cavs fans being upset that the only reason their team was even slightly decent (let alone a perennial contender) decided to leave.
I can't understand the Cavs owner writing the absurdly childish and hateful letter that he did.
I can't understand Cavs fans constantly talking about "F that guy, he never did shit for us."
I can't understand Cavs fans burning his jersey in the street and having a riot over the whole affair.
I can't understand the national media burying and vilifying him for months after the fact.
I can't understand everyone who underrates his basketball ability or spews dumb nonsense like "This proves that he doesn't have killer instinct/that he isn't an alpha dog," or the absurd overrating/revisionist history of Kobe Bryant that has come out of this.
