One reason, if not the major reason, that LeBron James has taken so long to decide whether to play in Miami or Cleveland next season is the infamous letter Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert penned about James after the superstar left Cleveland in 2010, sources said.
All the more reason Cleveland shouldn't even be an option. Duh. It wasn't just Gilbert who trashed LeBron publicly, it was every Cavaliers fan as well. The whole city went on and on about his betrayal and how he abandoned the city and the fans. Why in the world would they even want him back? It's more than obvious that without an All Star team around him, he's not winning anything and if you look at the Cavs roster, there's certainly no Dream Team sitting there waiting for LeBron to sign.
