Chris Rock Knows Why LeBron Left Cleveland

Posted By on Wed, Feb 16, 2011 at 11:16 AM


Chris Rock sat down for an interview with Scott Raab, Esquire scribe and native Clevelander. They talked about lots of stuff, including LeBron and Cleveland.

Why did King James depart for Miami? Simple, Rock says: the fucking weather.

Here's a snippet of their discussion:

SR: I'm writing a book about LeBron. I'm a Cleveland guy. I'm mad at him.

CR: I don't even see what the big story is.

SR: Cleveland's hurting, Chris.

CR: Cleveland deserves to hurt. I said that wrong. Deservedly so, hurts. But I'm telling you, weather alone should've been cause for panic.

SR: He's got a LOYALTY tattoo.

CR: Loyalty to friends. And all his friends are right there. God bless him.

SR: They all wanted him to stay.

CR: No, they didn't. They all wanted to go. And by the way, he's surrounded by six 25-year-old black guys — where do you think they want to be? They want to be in Miami.

SR: I know that you're right. I'm just having a hard time getting over it.

CR: It's the weather, dude. I can't believe no one's written that article. If Dwyane Wade played in Milwaukee, LeBron would not be in fucking Milwaukee.

SR: I believe that. Chicago I thought was possible...

CR: He was not going to Chicago. What's the point? It was all about the fucking weather.
