Yeah, like I hated KG when he left Minnesota because he's black...there's more than that:
  1. It was done such a tasteless way, going on national television and bringing an entire nation to its knees watching an hour commercial for LeBron James on ESPN when more reasonable options could have been done (i.e Twitter or a press release).
  2. I'm not the biggest basketball guy (I was wrapped up in the more exciting Stanley Cup playoffs), but did LBJ even show up for the last game or two against Boston in the playoffs?
  3. The truth is is that people (myself included) don't dislike you because you're black, it's because you're a drama king and a "leader" who doesn't give your all when things go your way and are being "advised" by a group of buffoons to even suggest that race was ever a factor in this and let your image tank much like a sinking ship.

In fact, the more I think about it, the more I think the Heat will choke. On paper they're scary, but remember that Bosh pulled a similar trick in Toronto last year with his "knee" when the Raptors were on the verge of collapse.

There's always going to be a small percentage that hate someone because of their race.  In this case the majority of people (of all races) hate LeBron because he's a douche.
