Mo Williams: 'Dallas healed my heart'

MIAMI -- After LeBron James left the Cavaliers behind, which included leaving behind a group of teammates he was very close to, Mo Williams actually said he considered retiring.

He was so heartbroken by LeBron leaving that he actually questioned why he was even playing basketball. That's pretty real stuff right there.

So, with the Mavericks beating LeBron's team in The Finals -- and with LeBron underwhelming everyone throughout -- Williams said it's all better for him now. Broken heart: fixed.

Williams' tweet basically sums up a lot of the way the city of Cleveland feels. It's become this semi-ridiculous sentiment throughout Cleveland that somehow they vicariously won a championship through LeBron's loss. I can't get behind that, but the feeling is real and Williams speaks for them.

It's definitely not closure on the whole thing because LeBron still plays for the Heat and the Cavs are still terrible. But it's at least something. Maybe they can move on a little now. If Williams can, why not everyone else?

Oh who am I kidding. Cleveland's probably halfway burnt down by now. Live it up, I guess.

Mo Williams: 'Dallas healed my heart'

I don't really understand this tweet by Mo Williams. How did this heal his heart? Him and LeBron acted like they were boys when they were on the Cavs. Does he think everyone in Cleveland will forget how bad he choked in the playoffs now? As bad as LeBron's choke job was, I think Mo's was worse come playoff time when he was in Cleveland. And after LeBron left the Cavs, Mo showed no leadership at all and seemed as though he didn't even want to be there. What's with these guys? But it's all good for Cavs fans, we have the #1 pick and we got rid of Mo and his heart is healed so it's all good for everyone.

Lebron would go a long way in repairing his image if he held a press conference and declared that his nickname is inappropriate and that he would no longer answer to that moniker. You must be a prince before becomming a king....... right now you are neither.

THEY JUST DON'T GET IT......Even after the loss when Lebron was asked if it bothered him that so many people wanted him to fail.  He responded with one of his most defensive comments yet....He said it didn't bother him because at the end of the day he was still a rich baller and everyone else would go back to being beneath him.  That was his answer in a nutshell. .....HEY LEBRON, how about learning how to be a little more humble in your life. And stop letting thinking that you are entitled to something without wiining any thing.
