1. Miami was a sinking ship that was aging and capped out and had no way to maintain the level they had last year (which wasn't good enough), let alone improve it.
2. Cavaliers are an up and coming team with multiple young stars and assets to move for other stars.
3. He gets to mend his reputation with his home town/state and fix things when he destroyed them years ago.
4. A big three of Kyrie, Lebron and Love or 50 year old Wade, Bosh, and Lebron. Which sounds better?
This was the perfect opportunity for Lebron to save face with the Cavs along with simultaneously going to a contender. Does anyone really think the Cavaliers won't be the best team in the East next year and be a lock for the Finals? Obviously a large part of that is Lebron, but does anyone really think if Lebron returned that Heat team would be as good as this years Cavaliers team?
I mean seriously???? That Cavaliers team wins by 30 in a head to head matchup.
Lebron is just going to the best opportunity to win. He is NOT sacrificing anything. He's going into ANOTHER ready to win a championship team and abandoning the Heat the second they look like they are in decline. This is another selfish move by an ego fueled star that will do nothing but help himself.
