We Are All Hypocrites - One fan's take on LeBron's decision to go back to Cleveland

1

This post by a passionate Miami Heat fan written last week has a very interesting take on the decision of LeBron James to go "home" and play for the Cleveland Cavaliers. What is the relationship between athlete and fan? "Yes, LeBron’s being here brought me joy as he led my favorite NBA team to the NBA Finals four consecutive years; but to say that I should be grateful to him suggests that Lebron gave me a gift. It would suggest that I owe him something but just like he doesn’t owe me anything, I owe him nothing as well. This is not bitterness, but more so a realistic perspective. Miami gave to LeBron just as much as he gave to us. It was a transaction..."

UPDATE: David Aldridge has seemingly debunked this rumor. ESPN's Brian Windhorst is confirming an earlier report by the Oregonian's John Canzano that Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh are ready to sign deals at $12 million and $11 million at 5 and 4 years, respectively. Would serve as huge discounts and grant Miami cap space to pursue a top or 2nd tier free agent.
