Raptors fan here...a little hard to be excited for much more than giving the young guys a shot this season though. Looking forward to see what Ed Davis has.
Ding ding! That's it! LeBron doesn't give a damn. If he would've cared he would've stayed in Cleveland. He would've made more money, made everyone happy, and probably would've never won a ring. 7 years is a lot in the sports world.
He did what was best for HIM. It's what we all do when making career decisions, why hate on him? Because he's in the spotlight? He never says he's the best, the media does. He doesn't compare himself to the Jordan, the media does. He does have an arrogant side but it would be hard not to when you have the country hyping you up since childhood.
It comes down to making a decision that makes himself and his family happy. He's playing with good friends and great teammates, he has a great shot to win multiple titles, and he's living in a very nice area now. He also is part of the Heat family...the franchise isn't as much an organization as it is a family. I can't say enough about Micky Arison and Pat Riley.
On a side note I'm loving all the Heat haters now. Now I know how Yankees fans feel.
Not quite there yet, my friend. I've had Bostonians verbally threaten my life while walking the "mean streets" LOL - fyi, Bostonians are a bunch of pansies.
Lol But, the Yankees still suck. Mets all the way. (full disclosure - I grew up just outside of NYC).
no, not because of LeBron James
the above comment is an epic fail!
With the way the Braves are playing and the Phillies acquiring Roy Oswalt.. I would pretty much say that the Mets postseason chances have just been shot to hell
say bye bye to beltran and reyes at the end of the year too..
by the way isnt this a frekin nba thread?
I think you just might be right
Reports now are that Chris Paul is going to stay put:

yeah thats a cple days old.....we shall see, i wont be surprised
the San Antonio Spurs, fan since 1996, big fan since 2002!
i liked them back in 95-96, but never really watched them, but once i started playing ball myself at middle school, i became a big fan!
and i notice you peeps, keep talking about LeBron trying to get his ring, but ltes not forget, whom did his team lose to at his first chance?! HA!
Go Spurs Go ^-^
People hate the Heat (and their fans) because their "fans" couldn't even sell out a playoff game. Their fans suck and there is nothing likeable about LeBron going on ESPN under the disguise of charity. Dude is sick. They gravy train. Bosh can't even get a team to the playoffs. But, yeah ... in no other league or sport do you see the kind of culture the NBA now represents. By the way, the Yankees have won the most titles in their respective sport; the Heat have fluked one. Face it, Heat fans, you are among the suckiest in the Association. Stick to football, where you don't bandwagon.
That being said, my team is the Blazers.
Props for sticking by them. KHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAN!
Sixers and Bulls. having lived in Chicago during the prime few years and Philadelphia the rest of my life, i need to support/love both.
Props to real fans sticking with their team, win or lose. Good luck T-wolves.
Likewise! Without Bosh this could mean a lottery pick type season. Colangelo has his hands full trying to get the Raps back to respectability.
I found these the other day while looking for lock screen wallpaper and thought some of you might like them. They are 320 x 480 so they will work for many lock screens out there.

Lakers as an example:
Yankees have the most championship titles of any sports franchise in any American sport
I guess the Sixers, although I really don't watch very much NBA ball. WRT college hoops it's UConn and Siena for me.
