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?
