Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James shocked his fans with The Decision. It was one of the most unpredictable moves LeBron ever made, and his most loyal fans couldn’t really believe that he will sign with the Miami Heat. LeBron was part of the Cleveland Cavaliers for seven years. He wanted out, and Cavs fans felt betrayed. His big decision was followed by a terrible backlash.
LeBron’s fans liked the idea of him joining forces with Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade. But, his Cavs fans were frustrated. LeBron was leaving the team and it felt terrible. On December 2, 2010, King James returned to Cleveland. In an episode of the Scoop B Radio Podcast, host Brandon Robinson talked to former Cavaliers player Jamario Moon. LeBron’s decision was one of the topics they covered.
LeBron James shocked his Cavs fans
Moon spent two years with the Cavs. He was a Cavaliers player when LeBron left the franchise.
“It was like one long funeral bro,” Moon told the host. “It was like just everything – I’m serious bruh, it was like the air just got sucked out of everybody like, ‘Man, I can’t believe this.’ But I think the fans…they were hurt. Like they were – like, LeBron was married to them and he cheated on them or something.”
LeBron had a strong connection with the Cavaliers. It was an instant connection. The team selected him with the first overall pick in the 2003 NBA Draft. In his first sting with the team, LeBron led the team, carrying his teammates on his back. This wasn’t enough and the Cavs didn’t win a title. The Cavaliers didn’t win a title until LeBron’s return.
King James came back in 2014, and promised to win a title. The team made the finals and won a title in 2016. They played against the Golden State Warriors. Steph Curry and his teammates had an excellent 73-win season. LeBron smashed them
“Man, I’m so happy that man came back and got that championship for them fans,” Moon said. “LeBron never really left outside of Akron and that surrounding area… so, he used the time that he went to Miami for like, college years. Like, he went off to college and got away and doing his thing, and now he comes back home. So basically, he went to college and got his degree, came home and won a championship for Cleveland. That’s how I looked at it after the fact.”
