“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey
ARTICLE FROM ap.com (Full story click here)
As you know the Cleveland Cavs won the NBA title this past NBA season. It was great for the team and of course it was great for the city of Cleveland and it’s fans. When a team wins, it makes everyone smile. People are happier if only for a little while.
Cleveland had not win a title in pro sports since 1964 when the great and legendary Jim Brown led the Browns to a NFL title. By the way some people think that the legend Jim Brown was and is the best football player of all time. Some say Joe Montana and a lot of the OG’s say Jim Brown was the greatest. Young people go to You Tube and watch some of the plays of Mr. Brown. Judge for yourself.
But here comes another all time great, Lebron James and his return to Cleveland. He wanted to return to the Cavs and help lead the Cavs to the NBA title. And readers he did just that! What a great story. Remember he signed only a one year contract.
People were thinking will Lebron leave again? He did what he wanted to do and help the city celebrate a title. Well the question has been answered ladies and gentlemen. Lebron James is returning!! He will sign a three year $100 MILLION contract with the Cavs. Let me say this again readers. James will sign a three year $100 MILLION contract. $33 million a year!!
I hope you are not saying James is not worth it. If so you are wrong! Hell some say he is worth more than that!! He has brought maybe a billion dollars to the city of Cleveland’s economy. That means more jobs for the citizens of Cleveland.
James has done so much already for the city of Cleveland and his home town of Akron, Ohio with his Lebron James Foundation. He helps youth attend college if they get good grades in school. He helped build a new Boys and Girls Club in Akron. And much much more. Including starting a TV and film production company in Cleveland.
A new program starts soon on CNBC called “Cleveland Grinds”. Executive Producer is Lebron James. It is about James helping a bunch of folks in a contest to possibly open a dream business in the Cleveland area.
So yes Lebron is worth $33 million and more. I see comments online from Lebron haters saying he is not worth this kind of money. The Lebron haters need to stop the hate. And realize James is great person and a great player who did not have to come back to the city of Cleveland but he did. He came back to help the Cavs and city of Cleveland celebrate winning a world title. The first since 1964. And he did just that!!
