Did Lebron James betray Miami?
Debate Rounds (5)
LeBron James did betray Miami. By terminating his contract early; putting personal ambition and glory front of the Miami team; and leaving his friends D-Wade and Chris Bosh to play by themselves on a diminshed roster, LeBron James has chosen to be greedy and selfish.
If he truly wanted a ring for the Cleveland Cavaliers, he would have never had left Cleveland in the first place (which is something that even Jordan didn't do after several failed seasons with the Bulls). Instead, LeBron left Ceveland and went to Miami to win a ring for himself. Now it seems he wants to return to Cleveland to win more rings for himself (they have a younger roster), increase his publicity, get more Nike deals, and further promote his legacy (very selfishly).
LeBron James has a better build and is more athletic than Micheal Jordan ever was. The reason LeBron James has a different mind set than Micheal Jordan is because LBJ's character sucks. Jordan accepted his role as team leader and franchise icon with the Chicago Bulls and stuck with it when the going got rough, LBJ wussed out twice. And LeBron James is not just another player, he is the "Chosen One" and was supposed to try and live up to MJ's legacy; hence why he stated out as #23.
I don't get where you say "LBJ has a habit of giving up, but has never ever showed it in front of the fans." According to sources on its Wikipedia entry, over 13 million people watched LBJ's 2010 prime time ESPN special The Decision. And just to refresh everyone's memory, this was when LBJ told Cleveland fans, "you all suck" and "Ima take my talents to south beach!" And its only now LBJ goes back to Cleveland because the mayor is agreeing to give him the city.
