That was my initial reaction reading this.

No matter how people in Ohio try to spin it, in the end Lebron still won. While losing in the NBA Finals, I don’t think anyone with a rational mind say that he made the “wrong” decision leaving Cleveland.  Consider the way the Cavs collapsed after his departure makes that perfectly clear.

He might have made wrong decision not going to Chicago instead of Miami, but leaving the Cavs long term was the right thing to do.

The Dallas Mavericks are the NBA Champions and no matter how hard the state of Ohio tries they have zero affiliation with that title.

Without naming James, Kasich’s resolution commends the Mavs for their “loyalty, integrity and teamwork.” He also makes them honorary Ohioans.

The resolution singles out MVP Dirk Nowitzki for choosing to re-sign with the Mavericks and forego free agency in the summer of 2010, “thus remaining loyal to the team, city and fans for whom he played his entire career.”

I have said it many times and I will say it again, Cavs fan need to get over it. They are like bitter ex girlfriends who are getting joy out of watching their ex boyfriend break his leg in a car accident.

It is truly pathetic, Lebron is gone and his isn’t coming back, concentrate on improving the Cavs from being laughingstock of the league.

    I can’t believe he wasting government time on this BULLSHIG! I mean have they ever heard of closure? The Mavs should want no part of the state of Ohio if this kind of stuff goes down. This isn’t a crazy girlfriend, this is “Fatal Attraction”, “Single White Female” and “Alabama and Mississippi Jim Crow” ish! Refreakingdiculous!

      As someone from Ohio, I am OK with him doing this. Not because of my hatred of LeBron, but because everything else he is doing as governor is completely awful. The more time he spends doing this meaningless crap is less time to take away workers’ rights and generally make this state worse. Kasich is an asshole who should never have been elected.

    It is the WAY in which he left the Cavs that has Ohioans spooled up. And the Cavs coach had a point. NO SHORTCUTS. James acts like a 10 year old. No class, no spine. Just give up when the going gets tough. Run your mouth & don’t follow through. Make fun of Nowitskis 102* fever in game 4. It came back to bite him & many are happy it did.

    Robert Horry on the other hand has my deepest sympathy. A class act & a good man. RIP Ashlyn.

    It is deeply unsettling that adults would continue to promote hatred against another human being. The Governor should be more concerned about creating jobs, jobs, jobs in the state of Ohio. I hope Mr. James realizes that he will NEVER satisfy his critics and his critics need to move on with their lives. My prayers are for those who have hate in their hearts and for the Horry family, a real life tragedy.
