    but now that he is surrounded by talent, his chances to acquire one are much improved

    Uhm, I take it you don't follow basketball. Garnett, Pierce, and I assume by Allen you mean Ray, all have rings.

    and people are complaining about it? would they rather the networks be the ones who profit from the announcement media instead?
    this was going to be a huge sports story, and the media/sports figure played it to his advantage. he controlled how the announcement was conducted and he controlled how the ad proceeds would be distributed
    smart fellow
    The whole issue here is suggesting the ends justify the means. You seem to imagine this is LeBron wanting to do charity. I see this as Lebron's people realizing it looks INCREDIBLY douchy and was trying to use the Charity thing as an excuse. LeBron could've raised the same amount or donated the same amount easily without making a giant "LOOK AT ME" public spectacle.

    You see benevolence. I see narcissism with a cover.


    and notice how classless that same team was when he left

    i do also notice that the team gambled that it would prevail, despite being unable to sign him for a larger amount than any other team
    in addition to being classless, management was clueless
    What do you expect them to do when the home grown talent was on Larry King not even days before telling them they were the "Front runners".

    why do you believe the cleveland fans are entitled to be angry at LBJ because he left after you also stated that James was not wrong for leaving cleveland? that contradiction makes no sense
    Because emotions don't necessarily need to be reasonable for them to be understandable. I didn't say they're entitled, I said its understandable.

    People already pointed out the glaring hole in your argument with Pierce, Allen, and Garnett on that list.

    But even more than that, none of those people you just listed is referenced as "The Best Ever". And at the rate he's going, and where and whose he's playing with now, neither should LeBron.

    Like some of those on the list, he absolutely can potential become "One of the best"
