Just to clarify, Bistiza, is one of your main points that LeBron should have displayed loyalty to the Cavs and stuck with them for drafting him, since they were his first team and he should have tried to win with that team?
No. LeBron should have displayed loyalty to the Cavs because it was in the best interest of the most people rather than selfishly chasing a championship elsewhere.
We live in a free society, as badly as you wish we didn't. The only person whose best best interest LeBron need to consider was his own. Probably would consider his family's interests as well. But I don't think he has any obligation to think "wow, it's going to hurt Cleveland if I leave. So I better stay." That's just a ridiculous standard. Not to mention, as I pointed out previously and you conveniently ignored, you went 30 pages saying it was only The Decision that you had a problem with. Now you're trying to say he shouldn't have left at all. Frankly, a dramatic paradigm shift like that makes it nearly impossible to believe you aren't just being a troll. Hard to believe you would so dramatically change your strongly-held beliefs, given that you've told me in the past that you've thought out all your beliefs so deeply that we're never going to alter them.
