no he's not. He's a human being with a mob at his door, for something which doesn't deserve a mob. Fuck the people there for being such idiots. Stop blaming Lebron.

Is this all so surprising considering supposedly grown men were crying when he left? I suppose there are probably some people waiting to see if they can make money off his return somehow.

Let's see if Bron can stifle his decision til Friday night. I think most media heavy hitters are Monday to Friday. Even Doug Smith would be in Muskoka by then.

He took so much grief for "the decision", when in the end, that's what people want. They want a reality show with Lebron making a decision. They want it to be scheduled. He did that and he was a horrible person for it so now he's doing the complete opposite.

While it would be understandable if he were spitefully taking his time announcing his decision, I don't think he is taking his time. He has many considerations to take care of beforehand:

1. Buzzard media likely literally have 2 different spins at ready to pick apart his decision depending on where he goes. So many eyeballs right now, so the more inflamatory the story/report, the better.

2. How to announce it. If you take your time and consult with experts, they can tell you how to slam the door in the faces of all those who are looking for an "in" to criticize.

3. Don't think the Heat situation was hostile, so he can allow them to set themselves up to move on without interference if they move stealthily.

4. He can allow his superfriends to be the next dominoes to choose their own best directions before even more dominoes can.

5. He can allow Cleveland to explore improving the team with a stud veteran or 2 without yet another feeding frenzy of speculation on what young talent could be moved. What promises did Cleveland make to help lock him up?

6. Get his family and friends isolated and insulated before this thing explodes.

7. Making sure loose ends in Miami are tied up because he may not want to be there too often if he does not have to be. Could be some more tanned, less hardcore grown men crying when he makes his next decision.

He's not even there so what does it matter. IMO, that's very odd to stalk a persons house when you know that he us in LA and is headed to Brazil... Man, people in Ohio are a weird bunch

give me a fucking break, it's not like he didn't have over a month to think about it
what's left to think about?

this is lebron having a bit of fun with the media for all the shit they gave him after the first decision. if he choses to go back to miami, it won't be pretty in ohio

also, couldn't help to notice the craziness in miami with fans anxiously waiting to hear his decision ...

Lebron did it to himself, He did
And that's what really hurts

Just him and no one else
He did it to yourselfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff ffffffffffff

I may be wrong on this one. But I think that the Heat all colluded to come back to Miami, and when it looked like they were going to get in trouble for it (-it being strictly forbidden in the CBA), they all did as much as they could to get the League off of their backs. I still think when all is said and done, the "big 3" all return to Miami.

It would be nice though, to see them break up and see all 3 players go their own way!

Start a new expansion team in Seattle.

Hire LeBron and Melo, then make some future draft trades for Kevin Love.

Been defending LBJ all year. But I agree with Jeff. If you REALLY think that LBJ sits there and has no clue where he's going, you're on something. He's holding his sweet time so teams can make moves for him and woo him, it's all business... and yes, it's selfish. How so? Miami isn't going to make big signs till he does something, so that handicaps them till he decides, they also convince Bosh and Wade to opt out on contracts so it hurts those two individuals and the organization, Cleveland goes trades away valuable assets so they can give him the money he needs and the space for what he wants (Like Ray Allen). Teams are making sacrifices for the guy and he's just sitting and waiting, and his agents or himself are giving reliable sources information that he's "closer to sign with x team" so the other team makes a move to woo him. He's playing with the teams in a business manner, that's what agents and analysts mean when they say he's a 'business man'. Like Kobe, Melo, etc... being selfish in that way can get people to hate you. I'm not saying people should, but some will. And understandably.

"But he's not doing it", so the agent's doing EVERYTHING? Without LBJ knowing? He has meetings with people like Riley which last over an hour, if he had no clue and was really letting his agents do EVERYTHING all he'd have to say in his private meeting would be "talk to my agent". No way he's as innocent as he's making himself out to seem. And I guess this is considered conspiracy but I believe that's what the "business" aspect of free agency is to the stars.
P.S. I went on a rant this is more directed at people who think LBJ is mr. innocent and not at Jeff.

Maybe the mob thinks there will be free food and LeBron T Shirts given away at announcement time....or maybe the Gilberts have rented a mob to give credence to rumors ....
