I’ve followed the Cavs from before most of you were born. I’ve followed FTS for a little more than a year. Reading the banter. Reading the analysis. Reading the anti analysis. Sometimes amused. Sometimes irritated. Sometimes impressed. But always with empathy. There is, I fear, but one subject that will always divide us. And it is irreconcilable. Notwithstanding that, I wade in. Sport is a microcosm of life. While some have said winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing, I must respectfully disagree. How we live our life is everything. How we run our business is an extension of how we live our life. The Cavs are a business, true enough but it is an extension of who we are, what we are. It is an extension of the greater Cleveland community within which we all live, literally or figuratively. We, the fans, are the Cavs and for better or worse, the Cavs are an extension of who we are. It is for these reasons, which supplant winning, that a certain nameless, faceless player should never again wear a Cavaliers’ uniform. There are those that say, to forgive is divine. I say that where forgiveness should remain. If nameless should want to return to Cleveland, it is not to serve us as Cleveland’s ambassador of good will but rather to serve his own selfish interests and agenda. It is not that he left. It is how he left. It is not just the single national televised historic event he indulged himself in but the carnage created by not providing a fair warning to all those that had bent over backwards to accommodate the “Almighty" for seven years. What incredible arrogance! What a self centered miserable human being. Ty Cobb was a great ballplayer but he too was a miserable human being. Talent does not create character, integrity or honesty . It exists even in the absence of these qualities. And these qualities exist even in the absence of talent. Even Carmelo Anthony provided the Denver franchise the opportunity to move on just as he had decided to do. No such consideration was given here. We have the makings of a great team. His presence would diminish these efforts. I find it difficult to put into words what our response should be to such an interest by the “Chosen One.” I think we must be direct and candid with ourselves and with him. The only thing that comes to mind is to tell him to go fuck himself.
