LeBron James is going to make his announcement on Thursday at 9 p.m. ET during a one-hour special on ESPN, sources said."
Anybody else regurgitating their dinner? Anybody else absolutely sickened by the grossness of ESPN, LeBron and the circus act that is the NBA? Excuse me, I'm vomiting.
Speaking of ESPN, why is Jason Heyward (.251 BA/11HR/45 RBI/.366 OBP/.455 SLG) an All-Star and not Brennan Boesch(.341 BA/12HR/47RBI/.394 OBP/.594 SLG)? Cause ESPN said so, that's why.
Update: The NY Times agrees with me.
Update (from Tom): So does this guy at Sports Illustrated. (For the record, I too find this whole thing to be a pain in the behind. But since I have a rooting interest, I am also riveted. And my prediction is that he is staying, or else he is having a major press conference to announce to the world that he is an a-hole who abandoned his home town. I'm still mad at him though, because he manufactured this circus and undercut his own team for the last three years by not taking a longer extension last time. The Cavs have been fueled by fear as much as anything the last few years, and that is not a good vibe when facing adversity.)
Update (from Tom): Here are some slightly stronger feelings on the matter from Drew Magary at Deadspin. Warning, there's a bad word or two. Seriously, if you do not like profanity, you probably want to skip this one.
