Why Miami and LeBron still doesn't make sense.

12

This is a great piece I think addresses one of the things that really irked me about LeDiva agreeing to play in Miami. Having lived in Miami and knowing the city, something with the move was just off for me. Miami is not a city where an athlete who is the face of a professional league and endorsement machine signs to play. It just didn't make any sense and is still a little surreal to me. The rules are simple, either you stay with your team or you sign to play in New York or LA. Unfortunately for Mr. James, he couldn't have screwed it up worse...but he's obviously too fried and narcissistic to understand that he did. After reading this, you'll see the player, the entourage, the city, the team, and the endorser all play off each other and the result is still something that doesn't seem right.
