LeBron had to know this was coming, because: 1) He asked a question without answering it; 2) Clevelanders are still bitter.

So here you go, the people of Cleveland respond to LeBron’s Rise ad.

    Stop embarrassing yourselves, Cleveland. Everyone is laughing.

    I respect the fact LeBron is a grown man and should have the right to make whatever career moves he deems fit, but … the single worst decision of his career to go on TV and burn the Cavs like that. Should have only done that to announce him STAYING.

      And that’s fine, but get OVER IT ALREADY. Cleveland is menstruating all over the U.S. with this nonsense and “The Decision” was made months ago. Life goes on.

    F*** Cleveland. I’m tired of this. LeBron is a Heat now… whatever that is. He’ll do fine and Cleveland will suck for a long time. Just be a fan of a different team that might beat the Heat and STFU!!

    I love it! the part at the end where he says he came here to bring a championship to cleveland and he won’t leave until he does classic. again if he had just said it and been done with it nobody but cleveland fans would have had a problem but they would not hate him like they do now. it was your decsion now deal with it.like anybody should feel sorry he is only getting 15 million not to win in miami.if it was not about money then why did you have to have a max contract with the cavs?maybe they could have gotten you that superstar you had to have to win if they were not paying you all that money.

      Rushified, what was he supposed to say, “I’ll try to win a championship if not I’ll leave after 7 seasons”. I thought it was dumb to announce it on national t.v as well but at any point during this thing were you naive enough to think that Lebron’s announcement would have been a little blurb on the bottom line of ESPN. CNN talked about it. The president of the United States said he would look good in a Bulls jersey. New York made him an ad campaign. ESPN was 24-7 free agency central and even had a one hour special to start up free agency. As soon as he made a decision there would have been an hour special anyway and they probably would have interviewed Lebron. If Cleveland actually thought he quit during the Celtics game then why were you all begging him to come back. Any way he would have left he would have been crucified there.

      Also you are commenting on his max salary with the Cavs like he didn’t deserve it. As much as Gilbert hates him, Lebron made him a very rich man doubling attendence and his teams net worth. Lebron left because he realized no great player wants to go to Cleveland no matter how much you pay him. Amare did not want to go there at the trade deadline so the Cavs got Jamison, the third best player on a team the Cavs routinely knocked out of the first round. Chris Bosh who is not rolling in endorsements took less money to go to Miami and refused to participate in a sign and trade with Cleveland that would have netted him more money.

      At first I felt really bad for Cleveland. She was like the wife whose husband left her for another woman after 10 years and two kids. But when the woman tries to take her ex for everything he has plus some, refuses to let him see his kids and constantly disparages their father in front of them she ceases being a victim and just becomes a female dog. GET OVER IT! LIVE YOUR LIFE! Lebron let you down but the sky still is blue and believe it or not the sun comes up every morning.

    uh cleveland pretty sure that he told you in the first days you could sign a free agent, not “the last week of free agency”. Cleveland not only a horrible place to live, but full of idiots.
