    Bigger kick in the jumblies: Harrison Barnes or LeBron James?

    I thought Harrison's handling of his UNC decision was awful. He big-timed and embarrassed his hometown team with the way he handled that.

    LeBron was worse. Going on national TV to punk your hometown team? That's a pretty big eff-you.

    I believe both will regret the way they handled their decisions.

    Wasn't Harrison's thing televised?


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    Neither, they both did what they wanted to do and what they thought was the best choice to reach a championship.

    Both made me cringe. I don't think Lebron is a bad guy, but I hate that HB idolizes him. King James has A LOT of growing up to do.

    Sorry, I should have elaborated more. Yes, Harrison was also on national TV. I think LeBron's was worse because he's from that area and already played with Cleveland. The city, the team, the fans deserved better than to find out this way.

    Like ISU fans with Harrison Barnes, I think Cleveland fans couldn't fault LBJ for making a business decision to go elsewhere. But you let your people down easy. The arrogance really is amazing.

    How else is Lebron supposed to let "the city, the team, and the fans" know he was leaving? Visit each one personally?

    Serious? How did the rest of the free agents let their teams know they were going elsewhere?



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    same crap different level

    I think both (and all that follow similarly) are wrong on every level ... no matter what choice they make it is shameless self-promotion

    I must be getting old

    Be serious for a minute, he doesn't have that kind of time. A phone call to each would have been fine.

    Both were ridiculous. I can totally understand Lebron wanting to go somewhere he can win a championship. I can understand HB deciding to go to UNC over ISU. Both decisions are completely understandable.

    Neither decision required the respective player to become larger than life with an entire show devoted to "Where will Harrison (Lebron) go?????"

    PUT OUT A FRICKIN PRESS RELEASE, WHATEVER ... DON'T HAVE A FRICKIN ONE HOUR SHOW TO SAY "LOOK AT ME, I'M IMPORTANT"

    also, since when can you give yourself a nickname and call yourself by your own nickname?
