Really? Rapes, murders, drunk driving accidents, racism, etc all became water under the bridge for athletes by playing and winning. This couldn't happen for LeBron because he was ever-present in the situation that people grew to hate him for.

I do think he would have fewer haters. It wasn't just the decision it was the sneaking around to contrive a team of all-stars for a shortcut. Somehow people are more accepting if the team is built the usual way. Also, that's quite a few rejected blue-collar types that watched him uproot and go to soft, "better than you" Miami.
