The Biggest Free Agent Move in history and the HEAT is on LeBron James!!

Hello Sweetea,

Talk about the HEAT is really on Lebron James now!! He finally made a decision to head over to Sunny Florida and play for the Miami, Heats. They didn’t call them the HEAT 4 any reason!!!! Can I say Lebron was treated like a “Divine Diva.” Never have I ever seen a player get all this attention as to what team to play for next season and the announcement of his finally decision made into a national public event. I know some people had watching parties and made bets on what team James was going to pick after 7 seasons playing for the Cavaliers. If Lebron proved anything tonight its that money doesn’t always win. I’m happy to see he decided not to chase money because he got that, and now it’s time for him to set bigger goals. Lebron turned down a $128 million 6 year deal with the Cavs to play alongside Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh for an expected $99 million, 5 year deal with the Heat.

I understand a lot of people aren’t happy with his finally decision but he have to do what he thinks is best for him and his career. I’m super shocked at the letter Dan Gilbert, majority owner of Cleveland, Cavaliers posted on their website.  This is what the letter reads……

Open Letter to Fans from Cavaliers Majority Owner Dan Gilbert

Cleveland, All Of Northeast Ohio and Cleveland Cavaliers Supporters Wherever You May Be Tonight;

As you now know, our former hero, who grew up in the very region that he deserted this evening, is no longer a Cleveland Cavalier.
This was announced with a several day, narcissistic, self-promotional build-up culminating with a national TV special of his “decision” unlike anything ever “witnessed” in the history of sports and probably the history of entertainment.
Clearly, this is bitterly disappointing to all of us.
The good news is that the ownership team and the rest of the hard-working, loyal, and driven staff over here at your hometown Cavaliers have not betrayed you nor NEVER will betray you.
There is so much more to tell you about the events of the recent past and our more than exciting future. Over the next several days and weeks, we will be communicating much of that to you.
You simply don’t deserve this kind of cowardly betrayal.
You have given so much and deserve so much more.
In the meantime, I want to make one statement to you tonight:
“I PERSONALLY GUARANTEE THAT THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS WILL WIN AN NBA CHAMPIONSHIP BEFORE THE SELF-TITLED FORMER ‘KING’ WINS ONE”
You can take it to the bank.
If you thought we were motivated before tonight to bring the hardware to Cleveland, I can tell you that this shameful display of selfishness and betrayal by one of our very own has shifted our “motivation” to previously unknown and previously never experienced levels.
Some people think they should go to heaven but NOT have to die to get there.
Sorry, but that’s simply not how it works.
This shocking act of disloyalty from our home grown “chosen one” sends the exact opposite lesson of what we would want our children to learn. And “who” we would want them to grow-up to become.
But the good news is that this heartless and callous action can only serve as the antidote to the so-called “curse” on Cleveland, Ohio.
The self-declared former “King” will be taking the “curse” with him down south. And until he does “right” by Cleveland and Ohio, James (and the town where he plays) will unfortunately own this dreaded spell and bad karma.
Just watch.
Sleep well, Cleveland.
Tomorrow is a new and much brighter day….
I PROMISE you that our energy, focus, capital, knowledge and experience will be directed at one thing and one thing only:
DELIVERING YOU the championship you have long deserved and is long overdue….

Dan Gilbert
Majority Owner
Cleveland Cavaliers

I would think the fans would want your owner to be able to attract other star free agents. Right? How can this really help the Cavaliers? I think this letter is totally unprofessional and plain old childish if you ask me. I can understand being disappointed and hurt but to put out a letter of this magnitude is plain old ugly and proves he is lacking a lot of business skills! I mean Dan had 7 years to give Lebron a team of players in order to win a championship and he sat on his ass thinking a one man team was good enough! Until James final year Dan decided to bring Shaq and Jamison which was a tab bit too late to convince Lebron to stay. Dan and the fans can’t be mad at James for trying to pursue bigger dreams. However, they were and they went in on him and started burning his jersey.

However as a owner, I would think Dan would have more sense but clearly this letter prove different. As an agent I would not want my players going to play for an owner who writes and says things like this. He just basically burned his bridges with one of the most powerful players in the NBA and he put the HEAT on the Cava and Lebron to win a ring. This is going to be an interesting NBA season and Lebron James better watch out because he has a lot of HI HATERS to look out for throughout the season!! I pray he does win a ring this year and shuts everyone up!!!! This is a power pack team with The king, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh and the only person missing is Shaq!!! However, the Heats can win this if they go in with a WINNING attitude and determination to get it done!!! I believe they can do it and I will pray for them to succeed so Go Miami, HEATS!!
