Dope or Nope ...


LeBron James is the current king of basketball ... many, many kids look to him as a role model and hero. However, what he did this past week was certainly controversial. Basically, he decided that he needed a 1-hour tv special to announce his free agency intentions. Never before has something like this happened.

In a sense, he let down the city of Cleveland by leaving for Miami. Two schools of thought here - LeBron was interested in winning a championship, and decided to skip the max contract and the chance to be "The Man" in Cleveland (or Chicago or New York), so that he could play on a "super team" to win championships. OR, Lebron is a self-centered jerk, who could care less about his home-town, and only cares about himself, and this is why he decided he needed a 1-hour special to make his announcement, thus screwing his city on national television.

So, what are your thoughts? Did LeBron do the right thing? Dope or Nope?

I say "NOPE" to basketball in GENERAL, but yeah - Lebron is a self-centered jerk.

Dope or Nope? Whatever his intention it's still a self-centered move.

I'm gonna go with 'don't care' on this one, cause I just don't care. :)

I won't call him selfish, but when James sings, his octave reads: Do Re Me Me Me Me Me Me.

Karma: he'll never be the man in Miami (Wade will always have 1 more title).
