LeBron & "The Decision" as a Shakespearean Play

What up Cavs fans,

This is gaining a bit of viral steam, so I figured I’d pass it along here. Admittedly this comes a bit out of the blue, but I figured some folks on the board might get a kick out of it. Definitely pass it along if you enjoy and let me know what you think. Here goes…

Allow me to share the fruits of a dual passion for 16th century theatre and the equally gripping drama of the NBA's most tortured franchise. In the grand mash-up tradition of The Two Gentlemen of Lebowski comes The Tragedy of King James the First - a fully imagined stage-play that turns the saga of northwest Ohio’s most infamous ex-native into a work your Sophomore English teacher would love.

Now, I know you’re probably thinking, "seriously – this exists???" Well, heck, that’s what the internet is for, right? For anyone who’s ever so much as experienced a line of Hamlet or MacBeth or just likes to read ridiculous Cavs related stuff on the web, this is for you: the entire story of the 2010 NBA playoffs and ensuing summer re-crafted into a Shakespearean tragedy. Where else are you going to get to see Shaquille O'Neal as an aged seer, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh as villainous lords and Antawn Jamison and Moe Williams as bumbling comic relief (I mean, other than a Clippers/Blazers game) – not to mention the titular "King" James as you’ve never seen him before.

If there’s one thing Cleveland fans are good at, it’s being able to laugh at their past pain (and make fun of LeBron), so read, laugh, cry and enjoy.

Go Cavs!
