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.

@ 72
There are reports saying that he called Miami an hour before the press conference, and told them he was going(if thats the truth, i don't know) but he could have done the same thing to Cleveland. He has every right to leave Cleveland, and I don't think you will find a single person that will argue that. He could have done it better. Every person holds a press conference or something to announce their new team. Everyone does it. However, nobody does it on national television, in prime time, an hour long show that has the title 'the decision'. And to top it all off, the team he helped build up, and he says he loves, he didn't even tell.

I am not arguing that the guy had every right to leave. Because he did. That was probably the smart career move on his part. Cleveland can't win championships.. we have proven that. We had the best player in the NBA, and still can't win. I'm sure his family is very excited for a change of pace. I DO think he is a good person. I just think this whole situation got bigger than him, and he didn't know what to do. He could have handeled it with class, and respect the team, and the state in which he grew up.

Honestly, just look at Charles Barkley and Patrick Ewing. Two of the 50 best players in NBA history but have never won a championship. Maybe LB had that in back of his mind when he made the decision to move to a place where the odds of wining at least one championship would be high.

LeBron is King of NOTHING.

He doesn't even have a NBA championship, and probably never will.

Most un-sportsman like conduct I have ever seen. Going on TV to make a specticle of himself, and taking a huge dump on all Cleveland fans at same time.

I hope he loses his lawsuits, I hope he gets a career ending injury in his first Miami game.

People are not upset with this because they are thinking about what he is thinking about.... ie: championship, beach (maybe).. But they are upset because Lebron James didn't show up and play for the CAVS in this last tournament. ANY basketball fan who has been watch Lebron was dis-appointed that he was ambivalent to the organization and his fans about the championship this year. It was very ugly to see. So basically he just lost the respect he once had, best to him in FL. You know basically he is going to fit it just fine in Miami. Its obviously an extremely vain habitat of humanity. Fit like a glove. But I DOUBT those boys are going to get to the top this way.........CANT WAIT FOR THE NEW SEASON!

OMG Dan Gilbert is such a psycho! No wonder LeBron left!! You know, baseball players get traded all the time without any consideration about loyalty. Players come and go in sports. That's just the way it is. It's about the money, the management and winning. Gilbert's just pissed because he found out when everyone else did. He's taking this way to personally. Gilbert basically hopes for a curse on LebBron. It's a wonder LeBron didn't run as faster from that kind of toxic environment!

Now that he has made his decision for Miami, Lebron should let his playing on the court do his talking. As to why this article says it's an act of cowardly betrayal to fly private vs. commercial, I suspect paparazzi have less access to celebrities which is a good thing for famous people.

It's absolutely disgustingly ignorant the way the "Cleveland Fans" are hating on LaBron. Ok, so Cleveland Business people will not make their millions marketing LaBron 23!!! It's HIS LIFE.
