He deserved it lol
Here are the headlines and as a side note that isn’t being brought up much. Isn’t it ironic that Dirk Nowitzki stuck with his team and didn’t quit on them, even when he lost in the first round to the Warriors? He won the championship the very next year after signing his contract extension. Think about that Labrom.

Hey LaBron, Did you make the right “Decision”???? As far as your comment about your critics, if you are reading this, I wouldn’t trade places with you in a million years.
“At the end of the day, all the people rooting for me to fail, they have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life they had before they woke up today,” James said. “They have the same personal problems they had today. I’m going to continue to live the way I want to live.” – Lebron James
LeBron James’ Slap At Working Class Stings His Sponsors Too
Well we have arrived at the playoffs again and we get to see how Lebron does against his favorite team, the Boston Celtics. We all know he quit last year against them. I personally watched the games and it was a little ridiculous to see how bad he played at times. Turnovers and just careless plays. Dan Gilbert says he quit in games 2,4,5 and 6.
I personally don’t think you will see any of this quitting this year as it is being brought up to him by reporters. If he quit and it was so obvious, this would permanently damage his reputation (worse than it already has). But lets say the Celtics come in and whoop on them and get up 3 games to zilch, the crybaby could come out of the woodwork and I highly doubt you will see a 100% effort.
ESPN has a story on him quitting last year that he of course denies. Well if you didn’t quit Lebron, you sure as heck stunk the place up!
Here are two responses to “Rise”. One is a Southpark one and the other is made by some people from Cleveland. Lebron how much has your “Market Value” gone down? What have your “friends” told you about this?
Southpark “Rise” Spoof
ESPN’s own Ohlmeyer RIPS the network for LeBron James ‘The Decision’ coverage
ESPN’s ombudsman despised the network’s 60-minute LeBron James free-agency special as much as everyone else.
In a blistering, 4,600-word column posted Wednesday night on the network’s website, Don Ohlmeyer ripped ESPN for airing LeBron’s free-agency special and writes that it violated the implicit trust between the network and its viewers. The television producer, who serves as ESPN’s independent journalism watchdog, criticized nearly every facet of the now-infamous program, writing that it “pandered to a superstar” and gave in to a “celebration of greed, ego and excess.”

“The Decision” earned rebukes for its massive build-up, misleading viewers and blurring the lines between journalism and entertainment, or pretty much the same stuff that outside critics wrote in the wake of the program, which aired two weeks ago.
But Ohlmeyer saved most of his venom for what he perceived to be the biggest of ESPN’s violations: paying for a news story. Though money didn’t technically change hands between the network and LeBron (proceeds went to charity), Ohlmeyer believes that allowing LeBron and his team to sell an hour’s worth of advertising was essentially the same thing. By doing so, ESPN compromised the trust of its viewing audience.
“ESPN should never have traded inventory for access or allowed a subject to select his inquisitor,” he writes, “and if that meant losing the exclusive, so be it.”
Ohlmeyer didn’t blame everyone at the network for the fiasco. He mentions the dichotomy between the newsgathering side of ESPN and the one more focused on entertainment, and scolds the latter for compromising the integrity of the former. Letting LeBron and his team take over the network for 60 minutes was “editorial acquiescence, not an editorial decision.”
If anything, Ohlmeyer may have pulled his punches. There was plenty more to criticize about “The Decision,” from Michael Wilbon’s sycophantic interview with LeBron (which Ohlymeyer backhandedly complimented as “straightforward”) to the use of children as props during the program. To Ohlmeyer, though, such matters must have seemed trivial compared to ESPN doing its best impression of The National Enquirer and paying for a scoop.
After the column appeared on ESPN.com, the network released a statement saying “it aggressively seeks and embraces feedback of all kinds.”
