NBA star LeBron James signs contract with Miami Heat

Cav’s owner calls it a betrayal in a scathing open letter

In a firestorm of controversy, LeBron James has left the Cleveland Cavaliers and will play for the Miami Heat. In a live ESPN broadcast last night LeBron announced “I’m going to take my talents to South Beach.” LeBron, the NBA’s two-time MVP, left the Cavaliers and a $30-million contract for a five-year contract with the Heat. The move has created an uproar in LeBron’s hometown. Dan Gilbert, the majority owner of the cavaliers, wrote an open letter shortly after LeBron’s statement saying that that the fans “don’t deserve this kind of cowardly betrayal” and called LeBron’s move “heartless and callous.” The Miami Heat scored one of the NBA’s biggest off-season coups after securing top players LeBron, Toronto Raptor’s Chris Bosh and current Miami star Dwyane Wade.

NBA star LeBron James signs contract with Miami Heat

  1. lebron made a good decission

  2. I totally agree with the Narcissist comment .Basketball certainly attract allot of classless players.

  3. Lebron James " the so called best player in the NBA" which i seriously dout… Maybe the 4th best player, behind Kobe, Wade, and Camillo Anthony. The decission was wrong in terms of leading a team to a NBA Championship. Instead, hopefully! Wade will be leading Lebron James to a NBA championship.. Is this what we call greatness?
    Bad Decission!!!

  4. I think that money was a big factor here, precisely why they should introduce a more structured salary cap.

  5. oooohhhh i hope he will come back in cleveland after his contract

  6. bad decission .,.,., to bad he better back in cleveland.,.,.,
