LeBron says he misses Cleveland fans

Let's not waste your time. LeBron James was taking questions from fans today and actually answering them. I think only two of them included the word "fam" too. Lots of exclamation marks, but hey, it's a start. 

And then, this.

 

Yeah, that should go over well.

Maybe he's feeling nostalgic. Thing is, he doesn't gain anything by saying that. Cleveland's never going to forgive him. He knows that. Maybe it's just part of his rehabilitation act. But he's not talking about the lockout. He's just taking questions, and with the fact he spends so much time in Akron makes you wonder. He left Cleveland. And he abandoned the franchise and the fans. But that doesn't necessarily mean the state's dead to him. 

Yeah, that's not going to go over well.

Yes it does appear it was all talk by LeFrozenone,but if I could ask one question it would be this....LeBron if you really didnt feel you could be the number one guy with a bunch of lower level talents,but instead needed another top shelf player to help you win a championship,or 2,or 3,or....sorry couldnt resist anyway back to the question maybe if you would have let ferry/gilbert know you finally realized what most fans in ohio did,you are more of a Magic instead of a Michael,they could have changed direction on the talent they were trying to bring in to help.
Air Jordan did what he did without a true center.
Better way to turn this around and grow up,come back to ohio,and I mean Cleveland,not Akron,and complete the job he started.

Question # 1 : Did you follow the trades,pickups Danny Ferry and Dan Gilbert made to help make the Cavs better around LeBron?If you did,what else would you have done with what they had to work with to help more?Most true fans that understand Pro Sports as i try to do realize players are going to come and go,its not the fact that LeBron left,its the way he put it in our faces by announcing it on national tv during a special never done that way before.

Yes he did fullfill his contract the beef most fans have is the way he added salt to the wound by announcing this on national TV this is not usually the way something like this is done.When someone signs a new contract it is usually scrolled along the bottom of the screen to let people know.So because LeBron choose(or maybe his posse choose for him,a whole nother problem),to put the salt in the wound by doing it this way.

I apologize, I didn't intend to offend Le Bron's ma ma. Mrs James, even Jeffry Dahmers mother didn't know the truth until it was too late.

Take that for what it's worth. We've stewed over it enough now. It's not gonna change the fact that we need to stop primeing players for success. And you can't really say LaBron fits into that catagory. He's about self and how long can you be mad at that.

LeBron says he misses Cleveland fans

I bet last month you said the same thing about Floyd Mayweather, it's sports trades & free agencies come with the territory. It was his right to go to whatever team he wanted to! We could've did without the 1 hr. decision BS on ESPN, I'm not a fan of LeBron but it's jackass Stan's (fans)like you is what's wrong with sports. What athlete you know that's not self absorbed? Even guys on New Jersey Nets bench is self absorbed, the fans have turned to haters! The city of Cleveland have every right to be mad, but it's time to move on. You were right about one thing and that's he might not ever win a ring, until he get some heart. It just a trip people go out of their way to say nobody care about this guy or that guy, but they read the articles and take time out to comment. Obviously you do care about LeBron, If I don't like whoever the article is about guess what? I don't read it. I'm pretty sure you're not worth .0000005% of what he's worth. I'll rather be the most hated man in the NBA that was worth 8 figures before he turned 25 than to be a disgruntled Stan like you sitting on your moms couch cyber hating... ijs

Le Bron left the Cavaliers after promising a championship, and did not deliver. This is forgiveable. The deplorable egocentric way he chose to do it will be felt for many years. Le Bron was the hope of a proud city and devoted, rabid fan base starving for anything that would provide validation for being a Cleveland fan. He has proven to be a selfish, weak minded, ego driven young man, and worse yet quit a job before completion. These are not the characteristics of a champion athlete or human being. The Cleveland fans deserve better.    &nbs

  Message to Le Bron: All those virtues you claimed you had in Cleveland  loyalty, devotion, dedication, it was all just talk.     Jordan didn't run from Chicago and he had some really bad teams. You could still turn this around though by GROWING UP!

You sound as ifhe escaped bondage. Maybe if you guys put together a decent team he would stayed. Grow up and prove to him that you don't need him, and go get your championship on your own
