man race ain't have s**t to do with the reaction to "the decision"....it just boils down to the fact that for the entire summer there was an EVERY DAY report on will he do this,will he do that...they were even reporting about the rumors on major news outlets.....you couldn't escape the s**t,and it had snowballed into this epic like event....and then when bron said he was going to do an hour long tv show to announce his decision it threw people off even more.....it's like it became the biggest ego stroking event EVER...and of course that was going to turn people off....however these are the 3 things that bron just needs to accept as the MAJOR factors about why this blew up in his face....



1. He got on national television,and told the world he was leaving cleveland his hometown state,the franchise that wasn't s**t before him,and won't be s**t after him,the place where he was saving the economy,the place where they put a ton into the kid....to celebrate going to MIAMI with another top 3 player in the league,and one of the best pf's in the league....it doesn't matter that he was doing it for the "boys,and girls club"....you can't pull the hearts out of an entire state,and than say "but i'm doing it for the kids" and expect people to not be INTENSELY angry....that's the thought process of an inexpierenced child,and maverick carter should take ALL the blame for allowing his client to do such a retarded thing..


2. He went to MIAMI with dwyane wade a top 3 player in the league,and chris bosh a top 3 pf in the league...going to a percieved "stacked" team,and k!lling the competition angle in the nba ALSO turned a ton of people off.....chicago had gotten boozer,and half of the utah jazz squad....miami had wade,and bosh....atlanta had re-signed joe johnson.....had bron signed to new york,or the clippers,or anywhere other than miami this wouldn't have been deemed a big deal....but because he didn't go the "alpha dog" way....this turned a lot of basketball fans off...


3. the actual show was so corny,and retarded it just added insult to injury after he announced his actual decision....and it was like every second more he was on tv after that just kept making it worse,and worse,and worse.....so you take the build up of the entire summer of all that s**t coming down to that one hour show...which ended up being about 48 minutes of pure nonsense,and embarassment for the city of cleveland,and for lebron himself....the s**t was inevitably going to snowball on him as far as reaction goes....



now how far people took it may be race inspired for some....but that's in everything.....however the major reasons for this being as big as it's gotten sits squarely on lebron,and his teams shoulders....

yea but who cares

me being white makes my perspective invalid right?

Your perspective on this particular subject is invalid, you could never understand, just like I don't understand sun burns and what is so tasty about cottage cheese, or whatever other issues Caucasian feel as though they are dealing with, so I don't speak on them.

As least one real n*gga posted in this thread

If this was Dirk Nowitski or Steve Nash people would have been like oh it was great TV and way to go raising money for the kids

Let a black man do it and he's attention whoring, they did the same the to kobe when he went on the radio When's the last time somebody called Donald Trump an attention wh0ore? But Diddy's a **** right??

But its ok for eli manning, roger clemens, and brett farve to stunt on teams openly in public, I aint see no Q rating reports then. Nobody was on tv burning Johnny Damon's jersey

Racism still alive, ya'll just be concealing it.

Yes, if some self-absorbed white athlete from Mississippi held his career decision over the fanbase's head no one would utter a word.

Shame on yall n*ggas defending LBJ.

You should be aware that racism played a major part with Lebron. You are dumb as fukk cause you are saying we are crying about racism cause we recognize it and you dont.
Are u f**kin serious.

Im pretty sure it had to do with him betraying an entire STATE than him being black. They had his f**kin mural on a f**kin big a.ss wall for f**ks sake.

like i said before, I'm not racist and I thought it was wrong how he went about leaving. I'm sure there are racists who didn't like him before and are using this as an excuse to hate him more. But to act like any criticism is based on racism or to act like you know how all white people think about the situation is wrong.

Honestly I don;t even understand how someone could be racist and like sports.

, Nall I always say that s**t because this one white girl I use to mess with when I was younger, she use to eat that s**t straight out the thing with a spoon no crackers or nothing, and I had never even seen that s**t in my house before so I know that's a white thing just like maybe chitterlings is our thing. But she was so cool, I love white girls cause they so cool and they just be chillin they might call you to talk about nothing sometimes but that's ok. I don't have nothing against white folks I done f**ked with a bunch of white girls, but a spade is a spade an we must call this s**t what it is no matter what.

Wow this s**t is stupid. I hate when people make stupid a.ssumptions from random statistics...maybe the black people are neutral BECAUSE Lebron is black? You don't know. People are really surprised that the average white person dislikes a showboating, classless a**hole more than the average black person? Do you live under a rock? It's two different cultures that value slightly different things.

My favorite basketball players are black. My favorite football players are black. My favorite musicians are black. I like Lebron when he first came in the league but now I dislike him because just when you think he can't be any more of a douche bag, he does something worse than the last s**t.
