LeBron James -- I'm In Miami, B*tch

7/9/2010 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Hours after screwing the city of Cleveland like a cheap hooker, LeBron James arrived in Miami early this morning ... to a chorus of cheers from the only people who still like him.

Fans went crazy when he landed around 2:30 AM today, showing up at the W Hotel after flying via private jet.

Flying private is an act of cowardly betrayal against the good people of the commercial airline business.

At #30, you know you want him! Had he made a decision to stay, you would be happy he did, so... How on earth could he lead on so many cities? He is just one person, right? He gave Cleveland 7 great years - he didn't leave before an opportunity presented itself, so he had full right to make a change. He didn't quit on Cleveland. He made is announcement on TV because it was worthy of that - you tuned in didn't you? Give the guy a break. It's no different than you leaving a job that you've been at for 7 years - it's no slap in the face to the company, but you want to go in another direction and expand your horizons. Would you want to be bashed because of it?

I think he made the right choice for him and his family! Leave him alone. People always got something to say but if this was your life you would make a change and think nothing of it. YOU GO LEBRON!

For one: Cleveland are babies and acting like children. Cleveland hasn't won a NBA title since 1964. Cleveland are ungreatful for what Lebron James brung to their city. Cleveland owner will not see an NBA title before Lebron sees one. Cleveland owner doesn't know nothing about the Bible to say you must die inorder to go to heaven. The Bible saids: Some will be caught up in the rapture and not die. The city of Cleveland did not have what was best for Lebron but only what was best for their businesses and what they can get out of it. Lebron James was obligated to only 7 years of service to Cleveland not for the rest of his life. Cleveland thought if they give him money he was going to stay. He doesn't owe nobody nothing including the fans and the city of Cleveland. If you are a true fan it doesn't matter who Lebron James play for. It is Lebron James out on the court playing ball not the people. He gave the city of Cleveland his time and has forfilled his end of the bargain. I'm proud of his decision and will support him. I guess the owner of the Cleveland Caverliers is most likely going to die before he gets an NBA title since he talked alot of mess.

He's spoiled? Seriously? Because he wants to win championships hes a traitor. I thought the whole reason for playing regular season games was to make it the playoffs and win a championship ring? Obviously being in Cleveland was not going to get him that ring that all "spoiled" players want. He doesn't owe Cleveland a thing and for the owner to pen such an ignorant letter goes to show how spoiled he is. Get a life people, you would have done the same thing.

Who cares!!! Lebron will NEVER win a championship not as long as Kobe ( the best player in the nba) is still on the court .Lebron showed everyone he is a chump and will always choke no matter who is around him. King James ,,,Your only a king if you have a throne ,and all I see on his finger is a high school graduate ring. People who ever include James in the same sentence as Jordan should really seek professional help..He is a quitter and has this funny sense of entitlement ,only thing is he has no title ....CHOKER

Anyone who calls himself "king" has a serious problem. Jordan never had to call himself king. Everyone knew he was the king. Also having a 1 hour special to tell people what you've decided to do? That's extra douchy! Lebron, you'll never be a class act. All he's doing is feeding his ego and his need to be adored, like an insecure 12 year old girl. Too bad he's in Miami now, I always liked Wade.

Goodluck Cleveland

As someone who doesn't follow basketball (I'm a football fanatic), I just want to ask what the big deal is about him leaving... I mean, I'm sure that would pi$$ off the Cleveland fans, but is he really committing the betrayal people are making it out to be ? Seriously, if I was offered a job that offered me more opportunity for advancement, should I NOT take it because it might upset my current coworkers ? If there is more to the story, please enlighten me, cuz I'm just not getting it... Teams and owners are constantly looking to the bottom line as far as how much an athlete can make them, and who gives them the best chance at a championship. Why is it so different when an athlete does it ? Just based on the stories I've read and heard I don't understand the big hoopla...
