By early yesterday afternoon, word was beginning to leak LeBron James was leaning toward Miami. It seemed too hard to believe, which is why everyone was slow to report it. Playing with a pair of All-Stars is an obvious appeal, but this seems to go against everything James has built for seven years here.
It was James just the other day trying to convince Chris Bosh to come to Cleveland. Bosh refused. Now James is following HIM to Miami? That hardly sounds like royalty.
James will finally get his championships, but by doing it this way, he is admitting to the world he couldn’t do it himself. He couldn’t do it his way. He needed help. Hardly how a King should think.
