LeBron James told a CNN reporter that “race is a factor in the backlash against him since The Decision.”
So LeBron and his supporting cast believe racist people had something to do with his fan popularity dropping so much since he decided to leave Cleveland? I find this deplorable.
For years he had Cleveland fans (white and black) living and dying with every step he took on the court. No one was more popular in the NBA than he was. The country bought tons of his merchandise. He was the toast of the town. He made millions of dollars. When he wanted to leave Cleveland cities all across the country put on media days to lure him in. Fans begged for him to come to their team and make them a champion.
He decided to leave Cleveland and go to Miami. I am not sure if he took the cowards way out or he took the most immature way to handle business. The owner of the Cleveland Cavs stated how hurt he was for himself and the city and he also saw the value of his team take a nose dive. He paid millions to LeBron and made him a very rich man. LeBron showed absolutely no respect for him or the fans by not letting them know one way or another if he was coming back. ”Just wait for my ESPN show to find out.”
So the fans are angry, the owner is angry, and many fans around the country are angry with him, his Q rating is way down and he thinks it’s because he is black.
What do you think?
