Planet LeBron is a figment of your imagination

Jul 20, 2010, 9:52 PM EDT

Hey, remember that house with the beachfront and the gym in the bedroom and the tennis court for the guest house that LeBron James was going to buy?

Yeah, not so much.

Ira Winderman (our boy) has checked with the owner of the house that he was supposedly buying and he says no-go.

`There’s been no contact between me and him,” Potamkin told The Miami
Herald. “I went through a divorce and put the home on the market about a
year and a half ago, and delisted it about four months ago.”

So that’s too bad. It’s not every day that we get to mock a guy for spending $49 million on a house.

You know what? In the spirit of our original post, let’s do a little rundown of other things LeBron could buy with that money.

A mountain covered in icepicks to stab the citizens of Cleveland in the heart with.

A waterslide that he can slide down vintage Bordeaux wine.

The moon.

Ireland. You know. For his heritage.

His own 3D ride at the Magic Kingdom.

Kazakhstan, the only place he may not be hated at this point.

    Seriously, kids, give it up already- you’re only making yourselves look more and more pathetic.

    Excuses,excuses excuses…LBJ had enough weapons to win 65 and 61 reg season games but he was playing with abunch of bums when they got to the playoffs? BS. if the Cavs had won a championship the media would be talking about how good Mo,Shaq,Varejo, Jamison and Parker had complimented LBj’s game. Jordan’s teams won championships in the same yrs they had 60+ reg season wins. The Cavs got outcoached,outdefended and outplayed as a team by the Celtics when it mattered, and the Cavs have only themselves to blame for losing. Stop making excuses for LBJ’s failure in Cleveland.

    “only” place he may not be hated….what planet do you live on Matt. There is only one place where he is hated and that by disingenuous fans. Stop vilifing a man who made a logical business decision.

    Really Matt? That was written with such spite. What happened to impartial media? If you left your job for another in a better situation that made you happy, you would jump all over it. Stop taking the easy way out and stop bashing LBJ and write something productive.

    Honestly Matt, all you have been doing since LeBron decided to go to the heat is crying. You’re starting to sound like a little bitch. And that cute little joke about Kazakhstan wasn’t funny or true because everyone here in the MIA loves LeBron and the entire Miami Thrice. Get ready people, DYNASTY!

    Leave LeBron alone. You guys sound like a bunch of sore losers. He had the right to go wherever he wanted. Sure I’ll miss him playing for the Cavaliers, but he ended his season there, so move on. He’s right, “it’s a business”. Oh yeah, and quit trying to black ball him. What a weak person does, the others will follow.
