LeBron: Stay out of Chicago


Your dragging out your free-agency decision raises serious questions about whether you can be a team player. Most revealing was your statement that wherever you go you might have trouble adopting to a system in which you are "moving without the ball."

Further, Chicago and the Bulls have done enough supplicating on bended knee. This isn't like Chicago. You won't find our politicians, celebrities and dignitaries making a music video pleading with you, like Cleveland did.
A one-hour TV special announcing your decision? Has self-importance ever risen to such heights in professional sports, especially NBA basketball? As if self-importance wasn't already at grotesque heights on the BBall court.
