“Ain’t nothin’ given dog, it’s earned
If you just livin’ dog you learn
I let you niggas see the light
I’m like the prison yard I yearn
For that living large, but Mama I ain’t done yet
Sit back and watch your son rise
Kick back and know that yo son set
Forever I ain’t run yet and I never will
Nas told me “Life’s A Bitch”
Pac said “Fuck The World” and I ain’t cum yet”

Still trying to wrap my head around what I hate most about this Lebron business. Here’s my list:

1. Crushed any hope of a rise to prominence for an already beat down Cleveland franchise, something I can relate to because I know if it had happened in Golden State I would be crushed.

2. Because I didn’t see much of Jordan, Lebron crushed any hope of seeing a player transcend the sport and become the greatest player of all time.

3. It cements his unique legacy in sports as the biggest waste of talent. Lets be clear, we probably will never see at 6-8 245 lb Big man with a jump shot and the ability to outrun guards half his size. Its just too bad he wasn’t up for a challenge. Its just too bad he wasn’t a competitor.

4. It means that I hope the Lakers win 5 more championships, crushing the Heat for years to come. It also means that I now realize how much of a competitor Kobe is and that my respect for him has increased ten-fold.

5. It exposes how much we, as fans, care far too much about the sport and seeing something truly great, as well as, comparatively, how little the athletes that we place have this perspective.

In the end, the Bill Simmons mailbag probably does the best job at encapsulating all the things wrong with the way LeBron handled the 2010 Free Agency period. Highlights after the jump…

Its just amazing to see how quickly LeBron went from universally liked and cheered for to the guy you hope fails.
