In a not so surprising turn of events, LeBron James joined Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to form a pseudo dream team in South Beach. I guess you can’t blame the guy for giving himself the best chance to get some rings. I mean, I have trouble sleeping at night knowing that Adam Morrison has two already and I’m not even the best player in the NBA.
As a sports fan, I can’t help but feel sorry for the city of Cleveland, who just can’t seem to catch a break. It’s been over 46 years since the city has had a major sports title, when the Cleveland Browns won the NFL Championship (pre-Super Bowl), which is the longest such streak among cities with three major sports franchises. At least they have rising baseball star Shin-Soo Choo. . . oh wait, he just broke his thumb and owes two years of service to the South Korean Military before the age of 30. See what I mean?
In 1994, ESPN dubbed Cleveland America’s most tortured sports cities. Check out their top ten most heartbreaking moments and it’s easy to see why. Now, that list was created a few years ago, so I think it’s safe to say that King James’ departure belongs on it somewhere, probably one spot ahead of the time Delonte West slept with LeBron’s mom.
