I never burned my jersey, threw it away or donated it to charity.I know when he was in Ohio the 2 things we had to look forward to was THE Ohio State Buckeyes and the Cavs.I know a lot of people who hope Johnny Manziel can at least do a part of what LeBron did for the Cavs.And if LeBron comes back, Manziel can produce and we all know Urban Meyer can bring championships to Columbus,well damn that would be great for Ohio sports fans.
I was a regular in the 80's during the Temple Tavern days... What a time we had!
This has nothing to do with open carrying. Sure, there will be people open-carrying. There will also be people carrying concealed and not carrying at all except maybe a sign and some flyers.
This is about the illegal laws that Mayor Jackson is trying to pass, that undermine state law.
State law will always trump city law.
It's just basketball. Enjoy it while you have it. My goodness if you can't enjoy a man's talent, regardless of who he is, where he comes from, and what business decision he makes during his career, then you have way too much time and energy vested in that man. If you 'hate' him, you're pretty pathetic. If you love him, you have the wrong focus. Get it together folks. The kid can play! The game is better with him in it, regardless where he goes. But that's just it; IT'S A GAME. Don't get so worked up.
gosh i remember shopping there on my lunch hour when i worked in Solon Ohio.
Forget him. He's done. Too bad someone hasn't inflicted the physical pain on him like he has on others. We can only hope he lives a long, lonely life where he's at even though we have to support him.
I think TJ is a Fag. Any takers?
shoulda went to collinwood
congratulations charles ramsey and im glad u was where you needed to be at that time! God is good and so are you. people make mistakes..and ppl make up for them as well. You did!! god bless you and I am omw to buy your book!!
Who's fawning and begging? If you had the opportunity to better yourself in your field and make more money would you not go for that opportunity? I am not looking to gain any kind of "false import" from his return. I am saying that he is no different then you and I when it comes to his career. You've got sport icons out there that are in consistently in trouble with the law and you choose to beat up on someone who wants to better himself and help people? If he's getting tax breaks why do you care? The fact of the matter is he's helping people. Do you? You sound jealous to me.
The Agora and The Mad Hatter/Last Moving Picture Company night clubs were the hub of downtown Cleveland entertainment the late 60's through the 80's. Hamilton Biggar III owner of the Mad Hatter chain passed away just 3 weeks ago. I was fortunate to work as GM of the Cleveland Mad Hatter. Now we lose Hank Loconti. We had great respect for The Agora. It was a great era. RIP gentlemen.
I remember how the community reacted to the circumstances of His leaving four years ago. I remember that much the community felt lied to, disrespected and used, to name a few emotions. Based on personal experience, actions such as His that caused the aforementioned emotions don't deserve to be rewarded with fawning and begging. So, my comments, as part of the community, reflect my inability to give two shits about someone who treated his community so poorly. Perhaps others have a weaker sense of self esteem than I and feel that they will gain some sort of false import if He returns?
Matt, It sounds like you don't trust anybody or anything anymore. That's to bad. I've had a lot of bad raps from a lot of people through my life. I like to give people the benefit of the doubt. I haven't given up on mankind. Have you?
Does anyone remember how they felt July 7 four years ago? Imagine those feelings reversed completely. I hope he does come back. He's the best basketball player in the world and he's from Northeastern Ohio and we rebuke him coming back?? You seem like bitter scorned women and men... Believe me.... It's not a good look
All kinds of people give money to charity. Does that act in it's self make someone "good"? All it means is that they give money to charity. Remember giving to a charity is a tax write off. Very, very wealthy people start their own "foundations" so that they can completely control where their money goes. Some use their "foundations" to produce favorable public relations. Look at all the free advertising He gets for His brand through his charities. These incredibly wealthy people use their "foundations" to completely maximize their charitable givings in order to take advantage of tax laws that keep them incredibly wealthy. The public's limited access to His actions as a whole don't give us enough information to define Him as a "good" or "bad". If you like him, that's great, many do......and many don't. He is a guy who shoots a ball through a hoop. Don't admire him for anything other than that.
Why is everyone so down on Lebron James? Lebron James is a good man who does wonderful things for people. Why do we think that this man is money hungry? Hasn't he got enough of that? He has this great foundation that helps people. The team that gets Lebron will also get his foundation. He needs money to keep it running. Why do we all think he annouced his departure on ESPN, for money for himself? Does everyone keep forgetting he was paid handsomely for that annoucement and he used that money for one of his boys clubs? He helps people. He's a great guy. All the hype is stirred up by the press. I am from Cleveland and when he was here this city was so alive. Clevelanders loved him. Yeah, we felt bad when he left but that is only because we all loved him so much. The Q sold out everytime he played. Even when he was with the Heat those games would sell out You can't blame him for leaving. He wanted a championship. I don't know about you all but here where I work that is all anyone is talking about. I think it would be awesome if Lebron came back to Cleveland and so do a lot of other people. If he choose to come back or not he's still a great person who gives back and doesn't forget where he comes from.
always spot on story telling from filmmaker Danny Wantz!
He is feeding the frenzy by the pretense of He not knowing where He will be playing ball next year. He needs to be the center of attention. It is a well thought out marketing gimmick.
His sports takes were really solid...his politics made me want shoot myself.
LeBron hasn't really been feeding the frenzy at all. He's just quietly doing his thing. It's not HIS fault we are twitter-tracking Dan Gilbert's plane.
