Lebron just announced his decision. I woke up early to watch.
After 20 minutes of stalling and video montages, Jim Gray asked the question, and the camera zoomed in on his face, and Lebron, stuttered for a bit, said he will be going to South Beach.
For a second during his pause, I thought he was going to say New York, the city I thought he was going to since 2007 and the city I thought I was going to since, um, June.
But no, he’s going to Miami. Perhaps for the better.
The heart of Cleveland was just shattered, live on national TV. It’s a moment I’ve been anticipating since 2007, but right now, I feel for them.
Update: this is a live shot from Cleveland. they are burning his jersey
