7 Reasons to Root for LeBron

I was once a detractor of LeBron James. I thought he often acted spoiled when he was with the Cleveland Cavaliers; I thought the promotion surrounding “The Decision” made him look wildly self-centered; I hated the messianic worship and the media mayhem; I thought that running to Miami in order to win titles with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh and Pat Riley made him appear mercenary. He wasn’t Jordan, Bird, or Magic. He didn’t stick with his team and take them to the promised land. Jul 11, 2014 1:05 PM PT
