I’m pretty certain Cleveland Cav’s got their money’s worth on Lebron.
If money was his goal, he would not have gone to the Heat.
I don’t care either way where he went. Makes no difference to me, since I don’t care for NBA basketball. However, you got it wrong Russ. He went to Miami to be part of a team that would win championships. He already excelled at Cleveland. He got paid, sure, but the owner made money from him as well. It’s not a one way street. They pay those players that kind of money because they make more than that kind of money on the players.
He would’ve been paid more if he stayed in Cleveland, than the contract he’s getting in Miami.
We’ll see if the Cleveland owner pulls through on his promise to Cleveland, to get them an NBA Championship, before Lebron gets one in Miami. Either way, Lebron gave Cleveland a big boost. They were a complete joke of a team before he got there (they probably would’ve moved to another city if it weren’t for Lebron), now they’re a contender and the owner has money now to buy other players, something he never wouldn’ve been able to do without Lebron playing there the past several years.
