The idea that he somehow "sunk the city" by leaving is ludicrous. WTF was Cleveland doing BEFORE Lebron played for them?
They don't hate him for damaging the economy.... but if you don't think he handled leaving like a moron then you're clearly looking at the situation with blinders. It's ridiculous that he has refused to acknowledge that and his arrogance has left people from his home state bitter. He even bashed Cleveland on his way out. Eventually that hate will subside, and while alot of it is excessive, it's not without merit.
