An apology? I about choked when I saw this and heard it. More kind of disbelief, anger and a simple case of “What the heck?”
“I couldn’t do it by myself against that team,” James said. “I apologize for the way it happened, but I knew this opportunity was once in a lifetime.”
This was Lebron after Miami downed Boston in game 5 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. He kneeled on center court, his teammates acted like they just won the NBA title and I still can’t find it in my heart to forgive him.
Shame on Eric Freeman, an author of the Ball Don’t Lie, a yahoo sports blog. In his little tirade defending LBJ, he states that now is the time the fans were ready to hear “I’m Sorry.” Mr. Freeman, I want you to know, that I am never ready to hear I am sorry from him. He quit on us, he accused us, he then hurt us and in the end, he laughed at us. You tell me Mr. Freeman, what you would do if your hometown boy did all that to you, for the opportunity of a lifetime?
James had a team, a very good team and he just flat out quit on them and us the fans. There was no, “I am hurt”, no, “I am sorry” as he shunned us, just a forget you moment and peace out. Neither of which I will ever forget as I sat there on the couch watching him that night.
So to Lebron, his little party of “yes” men and everyone else who is a part of that circus in South Beach, Florida, I have this to say to you. In the words of LBJ, “Karma.” It will come back to get you.
