Mark Cuban to LeBron:

You Need 'Media Training'

7/9/2010 11:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

So how the hell can LeBron James recover from one of the worst PR moves in NBA history?? According to Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban ... dude needs "media training."

Mark Cuban
Obviously, Cuban is referring to the fact that James decided to amp up the drama ... and screw with practically everyone's emotions ... before announcing on live TV last night that he was ditching the city that loved him to try and win a quick championship with a "super team" in Miami.

LeBron had toyed with the idea of going to Chicago, New York, New Jersey and L.A. too ... so now everyone hates him.

Ohioan here... people here are so PISSED... (ex)-fans burning jerseys in the streets, throwing rocks at the giant mural of him, one (ex)-fan even said she hoped his house burned down!! The fact is, LeBron gave Cleveland 7 years. While I do think it's lame he is ditching us for a quick championship win, he did spend many years here trying to win one.

Being from Cleveland we've always struggled to put together winning teams in all our sports. I can see why he left and even though it makes me sad Cleveland should use it as a wake up call.

Let me get this right. He gets money for bouncing a ball. And this is important why? Oh yea, other people think it is important for some reason they can't explain. Amazing

GET A LIFE PEOPLE! After all it is a business and he deserves to try to get a ring.He spent seven years with Cleveland to no avail. The team owner showed how unprofessional he is by his comments,I can understand him being upset,but his comments were so unbecoming of someone who is supposed to be an example.Mark Cuban ?? WHO IS HE TO COMMENT ON MEDIA TRAINING!!!!???
