ESPN- Major League Baseball enjoyed the two greatest words in all of sports with a Game 7 in the World Series on Wednesday, but LeBron James believes his regular-season opener with the Cleveland Cavaliers has the potential to draw even more attention.
“For me, I know all of us shouldn’t take this moment for granted,” James said after shootaround Thursday in advance of the Cavs’ home game against the New York Knicks. “This is probably one of the biggest sporting events that is up there ever.”
The Miracle On Ice. Super Bowl XLII. Game 6 of the 1986 World Series. The Thrilla In Manilla. And of course, Knicks @ Cavs on 10/30/14. Just a collection of the biggest and best games ever.
Bron Bron, why do you do this to yourself? Everyone in the entire WORLD loved you until you pulled the rug out from under the with The Decision and The Welcome Party. Then you leave Miami, go back home, and everyone decided to forgive and forget. And this is how you repay us? A million commercials about your return home and saying things like tonight’s game “is probably one of the biggest sporting events that is up there ever”.
I am officially out on The Return (and I want to kill myself for capitalizing The Return. Ugh, I just did it again!). This is all about marketing and making a brand name. Just like Carmelo didn’t come back to NYC for the money, LeBron didn’t go back to Cleveland to win them a championship. He went back to make himself a global icon. Anyone who doesn’t believe that is a sheep. So if you want to believe in LeBron, go put on your Cavs jersey and eat your blue raspberry Blow Pops. Because the only people that are bigger sheep than LeBron fans are people who think Blue Razz tastes good.Follow @TheClemReport
