Shoulda jumped ship and played for the Heat when you had the chance this year. The city of LA has turned into one big cesspool. LA sucks so bad that Kobe lives in Orange County (newport) and flys in for games.

LeBron never got along with Mike Brown very well, or the owner of the Cavs. He wanted to have control over everything, which wasn't gonna happen.
