haas you are part of exactly what is wrong with this whole situation, who cares? You do enough to plant your little nose pickers down on mommy and daddy's computer. If an athlete wants to leave a team for personal gain. fanatics(fans) will take issue with you every single time. If the self proclaimed king of basketball goes on television for 1 hour and basically kicks the people in the teeth who have supported him to almost no fault for his basketball life so far from his home town after he just failed them in the playoffs again, after getting their hopes up, again, and basically quitting on your squad because everyone saw what I did:you saw Lefraud try to show he had no help instead of trying to destroy the enemy(respect to all veterans but like Russell,MJ,Larry,&Magic would have done). If you want to go to Miami and play with your buds Lefraud: go! But don't you think for a second you have made your life any easier. Even if you win a championship or two you had to go to someone else's team to get it doneaneveryone will say you should have won. You see hass you probably have no idea what it means to be a true fan, I'm sure you come and go with the fair winds blowing you to whoever makes headlines it is your right to do that but don't post your little disrespectful rant. People who are much bigger fans than you are going to die this year, praying their team wins a title. What would mean more in the end 1-2-3(very doubtful) rings in Miami or one big sucker on your ring finger from your home town because you, not your buddy's, brought a championshipm to a town that is so starved and so deserving of one. I've been a Philadelphia fan my whole life and was a little too young to remember the winning of the 70's and early 80's,and I've seen hundreds of different championships(NFL,MLB,NBA,NHL,Golf,Soccer,Tennis) and got excited over many of them but until the Phillies won that World Series in 2008, you probably don't know what pure ectstacy feels like: their are very, very few feelings in life that equal the pure enjoyment of watching your home town squad(not the guy who was born in Seattle who is a Yankee fan=fraud) win a championship: A parade, a ring, a banner, and enough memories to take to your grave. As I posted before: many people will die never seeing their squad win one or another title. But as you so eloquently put it: Who cares?
Wow, if Lefraud,I realize this article is pretty old, has done anything it has brought national attention to the plight of the Cleveland fan. If you pulled this in Philly you would have a problem. I'm not necesarilly saying we are better or worse fans,winning is an incredible tonic for well:everything. But back to the topic here if you walked up to the souvenir shop and the main eye level was filled with nothing but opossing attire their would be a problem.
