LeBron James just took a massive dump on his hometown fans -- announcing that he's going to play for the Miami Heat.

The upside? You can probably get season tickets to Cavs games at a pretty good price right now.

no surprise. I only hope he doesn't do a dump on Miami. We in Cleveland now have probably a good chance to get some fresh talent and hopefully erase 7 years of horrible post season play. Lebron really did nothing. His hype is just that and if he is really good he should have won this last season but once again failed cleveland with horrible post season play.

I really didn't care. But it is nice to know that he thinks Cleveland is not capable of winning a title. I hope he is planning on moving to Fla full time, because Ohio won't want him (ask Art Modell)

he couldn't win a title in Cleveland, and he wont win one in Miami. He's good, but he's not THAT good. I hate Kobe, but Kobe is much better than that idiotic King James. Watching ESPN waiting for the announcement. There's 30 minutes of my life i wont get back.

#4 you have the slightest flipping clue about the income tax. All I can say I hope his babies momma realizes she is history, especially with all the skanks down there.

I don't see the problem It's a business, not a game. His right to make choices. I understand Clevelanders being upset--it's a big loss to their city. He has a window of opportunity, and he's taking it; just like almost anyone would. And I'm no basketball fan.

I'm in Columbus, OH and was watching SYTYCD when the "Breaking News" banner came across the bottom of the screen with the announcement. A few minutes after that, another one came across saying that fans in Cleveland were burning LBJ tshirts in the streets.
