The loss of LeBron James to the Miami Heat will hit cash-strapped Cleveland in the wallet, no doubt about it. But, it will hurt Akron, where James is from and more than a star attraction, the most.

LeBron owes Cleveland nothing – Big Sports is a cold hard business after all, well it is when franchises fire players as opposed to when they’re dumped – but The Ego of The Decision. Why do so-called professionals and their handlers have to be such divas about it and not just Quietly Go like grown ass men?
To my family: Big Group Hug. We’ll always have Repeat The Three-Peat.
Gotta go put my neck brace on. Ow.
