That is respectable... as long as you consider what the real story is here.
Every basketball player desires three things:
1 - A championship team (and a ring)
2 - $$$
3 - A Legacy
It seems like LBJ sacrificed 2 and 3 to get 1. Seems like quite the tradeoff. I don't think it's worth it either. For the rest of his career, he is going to be known as the guy who said in the summer of '10 in front of a live audience (which was WAY too overhyped from Mr. Bigshot who claims he will be equal with D-Wade and Bosh, but will soon prove that he is unable of doing that), "Hey guess what? I am not MJ. I can't win 6 titles. In fact, I can't win 1 measly title by myself. I consent the fact that I will always be just a good solid player, nothing more." I mean, come on, look how many rings Robert Horry won. Who cares?
To me, it's NOT respectable. If I were a Cavs fan, I would have ripped my arm off if it were to give me a chance to beat him over the head with it.
Not to say we haven't been equally damaged by this offseason. I fear in a couple more years D-Will's fate will be on the line too. Talk about a sucky summer.
