Seriously, I'd rather the 1 hour special right now.
Didn't think it could happen, but even LeBron handled the his departure better.
sad but true, the decision may of been the worst hour of television in history, but this is the worst saga in NBA history arguably in terms of a F.A, at least the worst in the last decade
"One good thing did come out of it, though. The program raised more than $2 million for various Boys & Girls Clubs, and nearly half a million dollars has been sent to clubs in Northeast Ohio -- site of James' former home of Akron, and the NBA domain of his former Cleveland Cavaliers club.
Mark Gillespie of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer has the breakdown:
A contribution of nearly $60,000 repaired a leaky roof, refurbished a dingy gymnasium and will pay for a new playground at the Mount Pleasant club on East 131st Street. And the Slavic Village club on Broadway received $70,000, which was used to install a new gym floor and purchase bleachers. The club also is waiting on delivery of 20 new computers.
Both clubs also received a video sports training system and $2,500 worth of sports gear.
In addition to the $2 million cash contribution, James arranged for the donation of $500,000 in computers from Hewlett-Packard and $500,000 in gear from Nike. Fifty-nine Boys & Girls Clubs across the country are receiving help from James.
News like this helps "The Decision" go down a little easier as the focus on James turns more to basketball, and less on the look-at-me production that he sent our way last July. And, as the waves from "The Decision's" wake shrink smaller and smaller as the months move on, most of us will start to once again regard LeBron James as a basketball player, and not the guy from that pathetic mess run terribly by Jim Gray.
The next generation, including a child named "LaBron," are already one step ahead of us. From the Plain-Dealer:
Kids playing basketball on the new floor at the Broadway Avenue club Tuesday afternoon had a more forgiving attitude toward James than is typically expressed by those who continue to demonize him on sports talk radio.
"I think he deserves to get a ring," said LaBron Sanford, 14. "He just went to a better team."
Dave Archibold, 15, echoed LaBron's sentiments. And he's happy with James' gift.
"This is a good floor," he said. "I'll remember him for that."
The Elyria club received $110,000, money that is paying for a new fitness center and improvements to the basketball court. The club also is getting 15 new computers."

Dwight Howard is an Idiot, we wouldn't even be having this discussion if he hadn't signed the extension he would be a free agent right now and can sign with Brookyln.
Lol he got tricked into staying put 1 more year so they can find more trade partners, and now he realizes it lol what a Dumb ass. even if they threatened to trade you to the Lakers, it would have been a 2-3month rental instead of a whole year now. Hopefully THey don't trade for JJ or else Howard has to find somewhere else to play next year.
