LeBron's Ex-Teammate -- Good Luck, King James

7/13/2010 4:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Surprisingly, not every single person in the state of Ohio hates LeBron James -- he still has a friend in ex-teammate Antawn Jamison.



Jamison -- who joined the Cleveland Cavaliers during last season -- told our photog, "I'm happy for him, man. I hope he gets a championship."

Let's hope Dan Gilbert doesn't hear that.

The dumbest thing a player could say. Why would he say that when he is still on the team Lebron left; He must not want a championship or believe in his team? He should be cut,thats bad luck.

Now, why can't someone wish another well. Too much hate floating around in Cleveland and in the world.

NBA commissioner Stern fined Cavs owner Gilbert $100,000 for his negative remark concerning LBJ leaving Cleveland.

This is just the start of that "NO" business sense owner money trouble.

Gilbert's money well has officially DRIED UP!!!!

Gee, I love KARMA!!

"...I hope he gets a championship."

What this dumb-ass is saying is that he doesn't want his own team to win a championship.

If I were a Cleveland fan, I would be pissed off at this joker and LeBron.

TMILLION: Take your racist crap elsewhere.

Antawn is no hater!! Just one x-teammate wishing another well...plain and simple. But by the tone of some of these comments...you clowns are proving some of Jesse's comments to be TRUE. LeBron was FREE to move and play for whomever he liked...since he was under no obligation to Cleveland nor the Cav's. So get over it...case closed.

No one cares anymore that he left Cleveland. Sounds like he was a creep, his mom was a complete creep and his friends are hangers on. It was how he treated the city he claimed to "love". Akron, Cleveland, whatever. He will now be known as the guy how helped D Wade win another ring. The CAVS will suffer for what the owner said--but the biggest losers will be those that live in the city of Cleveland/Akron--sympathize with those that are fans of the game and not the player.

Someone please explain to me how LeBron is a traitor and how he "deserted" Cleveland. This is someone who donated millions to the inner-city youth there, set up countless scholarship funds for high school students in the area, opened up community centers, boosted massive tickets sales, brought the Cavs back from obscurity (because who the hell was interested in watching the Cavs play ball before he got there), and he played there for SEVEN YEARS w/no championships. The front office weren't any help in bringing in a good supporting cast to help him get that championship. I mean really...how much else does he need to do to show that he was loyal as long as he could be. But at the end of the day, enough is enough! You gotta go for self. I just don't understand why he's getting blasted after all that he's done on and off the court for Cleveland.

They sound like a jilted girlfriend that just got dumped after thinking she was gonna get that ring, white picket fence, and 2.5 kids. Move on chick...there's plenty of others that will hit it!!!

The intelligence of some in Cleveland is laughable. Lebron abided by the rules of the NBA regarding free agency. He merely exercised his rights as provide in NBA rules and that does not mean that you have to play for a team because you grew up in the vicinity. Instead of growling the fans should be pushing Dan Gilbert to show his real support and go out and find someone who can help his goal of winning a championship.

I know that people are still a little sore about this, but I'm going to say it anyway.

LeBron has a right to go to any team he wants. Granted, Ohio is his hometown, but everyone leaves home sooner or later if they want to continue to grow.

LeBron has goals just like everyone else. Therefore, he has a right to go wherever he feels he needs to in order to achieve those goals. I wish him the best of luck and hope he gets his ring.

He may not be playing for my home team, but I'm not going to hate him because he's trying to realize his dream.

All the LeBron drama is so silly! I mean the guy is like 25 years old for Christ's sake! This was his first job. Who stays at the same job their entire life? Eventually you have to move on to bigger and better things. Why do people hate him for doing what he thinks is best for himself and his family? Who wouldn't do the same? He would be a loser if he didn't try to better himself.
The way Cleveland has acted towards him and his decision surely makes him glad he left. Who wants to help out people like that?

Not surprising to hear, from a mature player obviously. All mature people on this planet respect james' decision. when a team drops a franchise player it's 'just business', when a franchise 'free agent' player decides to move on elsewhere the world wants him crucified. Lebron is a human being.
