MVP

 
King James and his trophies.

I can only imagine how loud the crowd was today at the University of Akron. In the same arena that held my high school graduation, LeBron James accepted his second MVP trophy.

With the start of each sentence, I hoped he would use the stage to announce he was staying in Cleveland. Or at least propose to his girlfriend. 

Sadly, neither wish came true. While LeBron announced his love and devotion to the city of Akron, he glided around the topic of staying.

This man is going to drag his announcement whether he is staying in Cleveland until the last possible second. The spotlight is on him, and I can't say I blame him. He is having the time of his life and he seems to be enjoying the game of "will he or won't he."

LeBron James is not only a skilled basketball player, he is also a shrewd businessman. 

I just hope he sees that while money is important, Cleveland and Akron offer something that New York never could. The cities love and adore him unconditionally, not only because of his abilities, but because he is one of us.

  1. Nice post. If he does leave, I don't think it will be for New York...stay tuned!

  2. Thank you for your comment. I really don't think LeBron will leave. But I do think he will wait until the very last moment to tell us.
