Lebron going to Miami? I know it is too early to tell, but Lebron abandoning Cleveland to go to Miami and join 2 other all-stars in an attempt to win a championship may end up going down as the worst move of his career and perhaps the worst move by a superstar of his calibur ever. It is certainly not in line with what past legends have done. Michael never left the Bulls until after his 2nd retirement and it was really a move to try and help his Wizard franchise. Magic never left the Lakers. Duncan and Robinson never left the Spurs. Olajuwon never left the Rockets. Bird never left the Celtics. Kobe hasn't left LA. You can argue there are cases where this has worked out in the past such as Shaq going to the Heat. However these examples are much fewer and far between. And guys like Shaq have no team to associate their legacy with. I guess when I think of Shaq at his prime I think of LA, but I think moving around hurt his overall legacy. It might have been one thing if Lebron had left Cleveland for a team that was pretty much built and just needed that last piece. If he had gone to Utah, or Portland, or Orlando, or even Chicago. But instead he choose to go to Miami where they now have to build an entirely new team and this may take some time. Wade turns 29 this year and may really only have a few more years of top level play before we start to see a decline. Of the teams I mentioned, Orlando is 10-4 and on top of their division. Chicago is 8-5 and on top of their division. Utah is 11-5 and on top of their division. Portland is 8-6 and in 3rd place in their division. I didn't mention the knicks but they are 8-8 and in 2nd place in their division behind Boston. Miami now sits at 8-7 and in 3rd place in their division. He left Cleveland b/c he wanted to become a global icon and that is by winning championships. He did this b/c he didn't think at Cleveland they were going to get better than Boston (11-4), LA (13-2), or SA (13-1). Not only has his move not made the team he is on better than those top teams, his team is now worse than Chicago, Orlando, and Utah. Again it is too early to tell but his move to Miami may end up going down as one of the worst decisions by a superstar.
