The problem isn't Lebron here.

The problem is CLEVELAND!!!!

You guys really need to get a friggin hobby or something.

Lebron get that money son!

Cannot blame him one bit for wanting to get the F out of that shytehole for SOBE.

No Offense Zak ;)

I can't believe this is even a discussion LOL.

I could give a fuk about the NBA.

Only one sport in my mind and that is Canez football.

GO CANEZ!!!!!

canechic

This really cracks me up because I am not even a Lebron fan but the way he is being treated by Cleveland and the media is starting to make me like him, ugh!!!

canechic

Zakkee they NEVER EVER would have done that for him and his family if they thought he was not going to make them a boat load of money. Believe me they know their cash cow is gone and truly that is why The Cav's are PO'd. Nothing more nothing less. THIS IS BUSINESS for both sides, period!

SOUP

That's blaspheme my friend, don't ever ever ever ever compare Kobe to his airness, there is nobody like Jordan, anybody who watched him play throughout his career know that Kobe will never ever never ever ever ever come close to the one and only greatest of all time.

Posted by: Sean Spence is a Beast!!! | July 09, 2010 at 09:09 AM

I disagree. I was NEVER a Kobe fan. In fact as a person I can't stand the guy, but as a player I think he has finally reached the Jordan level in terms of his on the court performance and taking his team on his back to win championhips.

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

It still wont lead to titles for James

What James did was a total punk move to the city of Cleveland

Somewhere he thought he became bigger then the game and to hold some dumbazz presser to say what team you want to play for is idiotic

And to think that there are some people in the media that get on these high school kids for wanting some media time to say what school they are signing with. We are talking about 17/18 year olds not some 25 year old billionare

Posted by: Sebastian57 | July 09, 2010 at 08:17 AM

The presser was a bad idea, i give you that.
But come on, the man does not owe the city of Cleveland anything, he did not choose to be the messiah of that city, he wants to win championship with miami because he sees a better chance of winning it here, how can you fault him for that.

Lebron is selfish in some ways, but to give up millions of dollars, give up personal accolades, give up stats, that is really all you would want from a basketball player and ultimately that championship trophy is why they play the game.

Say what you want, but the entire city's behavior was just as bad as that presser circus, and that owners reaction isn't what you would call classy either.

Zakkee

Canechic, I understand how you couldn't understand the hate. You don't have all the information to understand. Lebron James dominates every facet of Cleveland life and thats very sad. ESPN worships him so you won't get the most objective news about Lebron from them. It is a business and no one knows this more than sports fans from cities that are competitive in the sports world annually. Thats simply NOT the case being a sports fan from Cleveland. Sports is like religion in Cleveland, its WAAAAY more than a business. Ohio sports fans are diehards and don't care about the logistics involved. The Cav ownership gave him, his family and friends so many amenities and perks that there are too many to name (jobs, a whole rows of seats for his friends & family, jet rides for whom ever he wants etc...) This shouldn't be, but it is very personal for a Clevelander. We know this kid (our sports section of The Plain Dealer has been about him everyday for about 8 years now), you guys just hear about him and mostly via a network that has christened him the greatest of all time without any rings. Everything (in Cleveland) is centered around him and every effort was made to accommodate him. Nationally televised announcement special in primetime that came across as a funeral.

SOUP

He also grew freakishly in college, cuz I actually weighed more and could squat more than him oour senior year. So he wasn't a player who peaked in HS like a lot of the 5 star guys. He developed at the U.

Do U wanna know a secret...

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

It's time to work out a deal with Udonis, the dude is an asset to the team and we need the type of player who picks up loose balls and annoys the hell out of other stars a'la Rodman, Bowen, Artest. I truly hope he stays.

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

Question:

Was Dan Gilbert on speed or something when he posted that statement about Lebron???

He went on and on and on and it's like he's doing this voodoo curse on him talking bout bad karma and sh*t, it was hilarious. lol

canechic

Zakkee if you worked for a company for 7years in your hometown and was offered a huge opportunity to work elsewhere that would give an edge in your profession, would you turn it down because of loyalty to your job? Do you think for one minute if you started to lose your edge at work that your company would NOT let you go? Do you think if Lebron lost his edge and cost the team to much that they would think twice about letting him go? ie, Emmit Smith, Jason Taylor, The edge.....do you think any of those owners thought twice about letting them go? I THINK NOT!

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

Living in Chicago, I was never a big LeBron fan, but I lost a lot of respect for him tonight.

He will never be Jordan no matter what... There may never be a Jordan. The closest to him maybe be Kobe.

Zakkee

Soup, if you get a chance, can you try to retrieve my post about Lebron from around 1:30am. Typepad simply would not accept it for some reason???

Canechic and alot of others, what he did last night was wrong in several ways. What the Cavs owner (a douche) has said is a ridiculous response to it. This national announcement, purposely leaving Cleveland with nothing, and essentially believing he's put the NBA on the lowest skill ala a video game. They way he did it, exposed his character. He put his foot in his mouth, by trying to say he didn't know until yesterday morning (trying to paint a picture of being torn), but later during the post announcement interview he was baited into basically admitting that him, Wade, and Bosh set this up awhile ago. So whats with the dramatics?

I'm not going to go on about his character and lack of an identity or how the only person he admittedly goes to for advice, his mother (who has a very checkered past and present) told him to "do what makes you happy". Thats sounds good on the surface, but is there any real direction in that advice? She's been doing what makes her happy for years and it hasn't always been the most responsible decision. That announcement was very sad to watch, not just because I'm a lifelong Clevelander but because he was not happy, he was sad. If this was the decision for you, then why aren't you smiling?? The whole tone of the interview changed after he said South Beach. A frontrunner and follower to the 10th power. Jordan and Kobe would never go to a ready made team, they yearned to make & mold their own teams champions. He's not cut from that cloth and it has alot to do with not having a dad involved in his upbringing. He's never learned who he is or how to do things the right way.

Of course this is great for our Canes and the 305 (I guess DJ Khaled is right..."All we do is win" so I'm not pissed. I just wanted to give you guys some insight into a Clevelander mind. Its like a Canes thing...you wouldn't understand or ever want to. "All we do is lose". And this kid just ripped the hearts out of thousands of people who absolutely adored him. He was the heart of this city. There will be many economic casualties to small business owners downtown as well (of course, not his fault...just a point into a clevelanders mindstate). He needs to win and he doesn't care how he does it.

MDCane

James coming to the Heat is the best thing to happen to the city of Miami in a long time. Life as you know it will change for the better. Why do you think Cleveland is so upset...the guy is a one man economic engine. Football, basketball, Hockey, Soccer is not restricted to the mainland U.S. anymore, its world wide and everyone wants their 15 minutes of fame to include high school kids.

Also, look at the star/celebrity power that will be sitting at courtside. This will be a win-win for everyone to include the CANES.

Word is the Heat will be more popular than the Dolphins, but I would rather see the CANES as the most popular team in Miami…GO CANES.

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

Canespace, i'm surprised nobody jumped on to write an article how Lebron will significantly boost the Canes recruiting. ITU and Canesport did, i guess they'll write anything and everything for a dollar.

canechic

I really just do not get the hate. He really is not my favorite guy but these people hang their lives on a basketball player? The kid did what was best for him, he gave up money, he gave up being #1, to win championships? I do not have a problem with that at all. I like the heat but if D. Wade left, I surely would not blame him watching last season. This is a business everyone, this is business. As a hockey fan I can tell you if you really like a player better get ready to root for lots of different teams.

360 it is ridiculous I used to feel sorry for Cleveland (mainly for the Browns) but I now officially dislike all things Ohio! They are acting like a bunch of cry babies. I am not a huge Lebron fan but he owes you nothing. He did the right thing.

Everyone would have totally changed their tune if he choose their team.

Cleveland get over it!

360Cane

Word on the street in Ohio is that West slept with LeBron's mommy and is the reason we saw him drop off in the playoffs.

People want to jump on LeBron for leaving but shouldn't the blame fall on the owner and GM?

Watching Mike and Mike and they're going over the letter the owner publicly released. Whata moron.

CaneRock - you're crazy brah, ha

Didn't like LeBron, don't like LeBron, won't like LeBron

Didn't help the way he acted after the Magic eliminated him, with him just walking off the court and acting like a punk in the press conference afterward

I've got 15 people in my news room at work that will tell you that I was watching the Rays game and didn't even flinch or ask a word about the LeBron circus that ESPN had

Even they couldn't believe it, that I didn't watch one second of it. I told them I got more excited and was held in more suspense about if Hawai'i would win the Little League World Series in 2005 and in 2008 ...... both of which they did win and I went nuts

Family got tickets to the Magic back in 1989, and I've been a fan of the Magic since 1989

I was there back in the day, watching them win 18 games, 21 games, 31 games, 41 games and then finally breaking through with 50 games my Senior year in High School

I remember Curly Neal from the Harlem Globetrotters, wearing a Magic uni and going on television to try and get people to buy tickets their first season

Terry Catledge, Scott Skiles, Reggie Theus, Otis Smith, Sam Vincent, 3D Dennis Scott, Nick Anderson, Bison Dele, Chris Corchiani, Steve Kerr, Anthony Bowie, Tree Rollins, Brooks Thompson, Darrell Armstrong, Rony Seikaly, Spudd Webb, Gerald Wilkins, Michael Doleac, Matt Harpring, BJ Armstrong, Horace Grant, Fat & Old Dominique Wilkins, Big Ben Wallace, Chucky Atkins, Mike Miller, Old Man Dee Brown, Grant The Robber Hill, Ancient Pat Ewing, Shawn the Goodyear Blimp Kemp, Andrew Useless DeCercq, etc.

Those are the cats I watched and suffered with and still watch and suffer with - no one else

I was there in the O-Rena when the Magic took Chris Webber with their pick - and then they traded it for some skinny kid that we'd seen a few months earlier in the NCAA Tourney at the O-Rena, playing with then called "Memphis State", named Anfernee Hardaway

Everyone cheered when they took Webber, and then let out a big "uhhhhh" groaning sound when the trade was announced

I remember playing American Legion summer ball in high school, playing out near Altamonte Springs - and the team we were playing had one of Pat William's kids on it. Pat Williams was at the game, and every chance we could in between innings, we were all yelling at him from the dugout and on-deck circle to draft Shaquille O'Neal. He just smiled, laughed, each time and tried to ignore us - but it's hard when you have an entire dugout of kids yelling at you for 8 innings

I'm a big D-Wade guy, wish like the hell the Magic had him somehow someway. I loved his game at Marquette and thought he should've been taken 1st in the 2003 draft, not LeBron - and I couldn't believe the Pistons took Milicic at #2 instead of D-Wade. No one should've questioned him at all after what he did with Marquette in leading them to the Final Four

You look at that 2003 draft and only D-Wade has led his team to a championship .. not LeBron, not Carmelo, not Milicic, not Bosh, not TJ Ford, not Hinrich, not Collison

So ya, once again, congrats to the Heat for keeping D-Wade, getting Bosh and LeBron ... but I'm in no way excited about it, esp. since they're in the same Division and Conference with the Magic .. eeesssh

Canesfanstuckincali,

No surprise there. I went to HS with Sean at gulliver, and while he was amazing to watch in HS, he was playing against mostly crappy teams that had more kids with Jew fro's than athletes. So it's no surprise he wasn't ranked high. Thankfully he led us to a state champ and make a name for himself locally. Butch was the man for recruiting him though. He also grew freakishly in college, cuz I actually weighed more and could squat more than him oour senior year. So he wasn't a player who peaked in HS like a lot of the 5 star guys. He developed at the U.

CanesFanStuckInCali

Sup Fellas,

I know this is totally random, but did you guys know that SEAN TAYLOR was a 3-star recruit?!?!?! WTF?!?!

Star systems are total BS. Any system that had Sean Taylor as a 3-star and that was responsible for Ed Reed only having one other offer in TULANE is totally bogus!

And to think that Coach Fudd swore by these systems! *Sigh*

So glad BossMan knows what he's doing!

Give us your opinion and projections on SH...

Do you think Seantrel Henderson will be more of a distraction or a great addition for the Canes?

Will he think that he is bigger than the team?

How about his work ethic? Is he out of shape?

Do you think the Canes desperately need him?

Is he in for another surprise and pick OS,ND or another team?

Will he annonce on friday, saturday, sunday or monday?

How high maintenance will his father be?

Is he another 5 star player nightmare for the Canes or perhaps a future Cane and NFL hall of famer?

All of the above are only questions.

UMike, I'm with RoachCane, and coming to you as a fellow football dad, examine that boys finger real good. Same thing happened with one of my boys last year. He was a QB on His youth team, and something freak happened while He was at PE. I blew it off as a jammed finger only to find out it was a fractured pinkie. And also, since he's playing middle school ball, don't be afraid to start him on a strength program, I started mines on the Bigger Stronger Faster program, it's pretty good.

j.w.

Six, now his team has no bench, center, or point guard. :) Seriously,he's a mercenary now so he better win if he wants his legacy to mean anything. I agree with Barry, Chicago was the better choice for him. And go Celtics in the East.

I was completely wrong, Miami did end up with LeBron - props to you Heat and Heat fans

What's the excuse going to be if LeBron doesn't win a title in Miami? D-Wade and Bosh playing with him - no excuse at all

The Bulls did go to the playoffs the one year that #23 took off, and lost in the 2nd Round to the Knicks

The Heat at 42-40 and the Pacers at 47-35 were the bottom 2 seeds of the Eastern Conference ... a team that goes 2 games over .500 in the Heat makes the playoffs -

People don't think the Cavs could do what the Bulls did this year, going 41-41 and making the playoffs?

I dunno, maybe they couldn't or maybe they could

It's all up for debate - but there is absolutely no excuse for LeBron not to win a Championship now, right?

Old Skool, it's pathetic if you ask me. He has enough clout in Cleveland to organize the team more or less the way Jordan did BUT he's not a Boss and never will be.

His attitude should be, "I don't need two other Olympic stars on my team to win a Ring."

Oh well. That's why there's only one Jordan.

umike,

The severity of jammed fingers varies greatly... from a mild sprain to stretched or torn ligaments, to fractures. I have a finger that barely bends now, (at age 55), because I "jammed" it when I was 10 and didn't do anything about it.

Yeah, players play injured, and you can't come off the field everytime you get a bump, or get the wind knocked out of you...

You should explain to your son that football is a "collision" sport, and he should expect to get hurt and play in pain often.

HOWEVER, he's still growing and you need to take care that he doesn't damage any growth plates, or doesn't do any other permanent damage.

(Don't forget what a seemingly benign "sprained thumb" ended up becoming for JH.)

Bottom line... take due diligence and provide RICE (REST, ICE COMPRESSION & ELEVATION.) Don't hesitate to take him for x-rays if it looks really bad the next day.

If it doesn't look bad tomorrow, tell him to "rub some dirt on it" and get back to work!

Do we really deserve to have Lebron James, D-wade, and Bosh together???? i kinda feel bad for Cleveland, b'coz they rely on Lebron too much, economic wise.


I hope Miami fans show a lil more passion and appreciation with the sports teams we have down here.

If D-wade had left for another team, Miami would probably sigh it out and say oh well.

Did ya'll just hear the reports on the mood in Cleveland, they're on psycho mode right now, they actually have security around Lebron's house, espn reports Lebron will never be welcome in the state of Ohio again, i feel bad for Lebron, i mean no matter how you twist it, wether Lebron announcing on tv to go somewhere else would feel like a stab in the back, they shouldn't be pressuring the kid to be one city's messiah.

I gave him a few secs then told him to line back up..and he started complaining..so I got upset and had him pick up the cones and we went home. I explained that jammed fingers are gonna happen, but he had to shake it off, that he could still catch, that it wasnt a sprained ankle or something...etc etc...was I being to hard?

STRAP UP!! IT'S BEEN A LONG WAIT.

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

Is Seantrel having a one hour special for his announcement a-la King James on ESPN as well??? lol

Cap,

First time I've read that SH's daddy came BACK into his life after what he's been doing in HS. I wonder how concrete that is.

Good for him to be back in his life considering his intentions of course.

What is this im hearing about someone making an announcement on the 4-letter network tonight?????

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

See, I told U!!! LOL

"It could happen as early as Thursday. Although, given Sean Henderson's penchant for promotion -- he appeared on set with his son when Seantrel announced for USC last winter -- the Hendersons may wait a day or two until the LeBron glare has faded."

Seantrel Henderson (and Dad) Will Get Their Kicks on the Other Coast

What a friggin freak his daddy is. His azz needs to come to the U and see what REAL MEN do, at work and most importantly with their children. Thank god SH will learn from a bunch of Bosses instead of his media whore daddy, how to conduct your business.

C1, J-12 was a half-frosh, half-frosh with a new OC. His 1st year under center was about the same as Ponder's first year. Remember all those picks he tossed then what happened last year?

J-12 will toss some picks but the INT/TD ration will be more like 7-1 or so.

Accuracy wasn't his problem, inexperience, overconfidence in his arm strength, and then a broken thumb were the causes for the picks.

I expect every one of those mistakes to be corrected this year, every one of them. Given time in the pocket, I don't think he'll face a defense he can't dismantle.

09 was basically his RS year, the one all the great Canes QBs got watching and learning from a veteran QB and a veteran OC.

J-12 was probably the most advanced offensive mind on campus his first year.

Now, he can learn from Whip and from his past mistakes.

by the way I understand that a west coast offense is a type of pro style but the whole west coast style was news to me.

KnoxCane

I might have missed this already but I heard we are switching to a west coast offense to cut down on picks this year - is this true? What was our offense labeled last year? I thought we were considered pro style last year.....

@ First Loss...

So Pitt beats us then loses to USF??? I don't buy it.

When we do beat OSU, sure the media is going to be all over our jocks. And I am sure the players have learned from last year as much as most of us did. I think they'll handle the media better this year. It's called maturity.

Solar no doubt.

We can only hope it plays out like that.

When everyone looks at the holes on this team they skim over QB like there is no doubt.

I wish I had the same faith....

No doubt he improves in his 2nd year with Whip. How much??? Only time will tell.

GO CANEZ!!!!!

I think Jacory will lead the ACC in picks but not as high as last year.
I think he will lead the ACC in TD passes too, and Yds.

I just feel our defense will get him back on the field more often.

I also think our running game is going ring up some long TD runs. Jacory isn't going to feel like he has to throw it deep at least twice every series he gets out there.

Whipple will surely account for two or three ill advised deep picks, it's just part of his nature to be aggressive.

I'd rather live with a pick every game trying to win than take a sack trying to avoid losing.

Sebastian

Gotta love those preseason polls

It sure does help the teams with the powder puff schedules to kickoff the year

So is Farve.

Solar I think we have atleast 2 L's in the chamber for this year.

I am still gun shy about JH12. Not sure why more people aren't to be honest.

Dude is careless with the ball any way you look at it.

Hope I am wrong but doubt it.

GO CANEZ!!!!!

solarcane

I voted 11-1 which could put us right in the NC game if the loss is out of ACC play.

I think 11-1 and a BCS bowl win would guarantee a top 4 finish making me ecstatic and putting the Canes a year ahead of my prediction 4 years ago.

solarcane

hillview,

u'daho!

LMAO at the lip timing on the rap

thanks

U know what ESPN is thinking right?

The ACC has signed a 12-year television rights deal with ESPN worth approximately $1.86 billion.

ACC commissioner John Swofford basically confirmed the worth of the deal during a Thursday morning teleconference.

Asked specifically about the $1.86 billion price tag Swofford said: "I have read some things that have been written that are quite accurate."

Swofford added that each school's take has doubled. Breaking that down evenly means that the conference will receive $155 million a year from the deal, more than doubling the current take of $75 million. That's $13 million per school which, for now, puts the ACC ahead of the Big 12 in the No. 3 spot in TV revenue behind the Big Ten and SEC.

They're thinking, "Let me get this deal for the U before they're too expensive to afford." haha

Smart thinking.

Throw in a revamped FSU and a steady UNC, Clemson, GT, VT and maybe some other school like MD or something, and you've got a damn good football conference.

Now if only football could catch on in those markets the way it does in the SEC and Big Ten....
