It's Miami! Someone should have been interviewing realtors...LeBron's already put a downpayment on a house there


Smith in Oregon   July 8th, 2010 9:03 pm ET

Larry, what team did Paul the psychic Octopus chose that Lebron James would join?

@ Jenna, yes I would think Lebron would go to join the Miami Heat.


Michael Armstrong Sr.   July 8th, 2010 9:06 pm ET

James this show would have been more interesting if you would have said you was retiring .


Nelson   July 8th, 2010 9:07 pm ET

If lebron plays in miami with wade he will definately win a championship. If he plays in new york he'll make more money but probably wont see a championship


Enrique in Miami   July 8th, 2010 9:09 pm ET

I understand and respect the hype about the Lebron event but please realize that "the world" is not waiting for this announcement. ie: I doubt people are holding their breath in South America. Let's not feed this feeling of arrogance that the world feels toward the United States with this type of generalization..and yes I hope Lebron comes to Miami.


Tonita   July 8th, 2010 9:11 pm ET

LeBron is not announcing the cure for cancer. Just tell us already!!!!


Brianna   July 8th, 2010 9:21 pm ET

i think he should stay with cleveland cuz hes the mvp and he wont b if he goes on any other team and he belongs in cleveland!! hes just being a baby and whining that he lost the championship he needs to stop whineing adn decide for dure cuz theres no going back!! but hes probably going to miami heat cuz he already has his party for which team he picks there and his bags r pack for miami!! hes probably going there but well see! STAY IN CLEVELAND LEBRON JAMES!!


Michael Armstrong Sr.   July 8th, 2010 9:21 pm ET

Actually im watching this show because of Larry and Tom Arnold thats why no ones blogging no one really gives a care about LeBron .


Kermit Ballmer   July 8th, 2010 9:22 pm ET

Ask Larry how las vegas is betting on where James will go?????


Michael Armstrong Sr.   July 8th, 2010 9:24 pm ET

LeBron would be great on Soale Plain 2 he can play the dude with the big Tiger .


Chere   July 8th, 2010 9:37 pm ET

If LeBron were willing to play for less money, would Cleveland have been able to build a better team around him and have a chance at winning a championship?


Paul J. Alfred   July 8th, 2010 9:41 pm ET

Hafa Adai Larry
I really don't care where Lebron James plays, I have my own life and family to care for. As for the people playing professional sports nowadays are way over paid and some are not good idols for the young. It is not the same as it was 50-60 years ago. Today's time everybody puts a price tag on everything.

Just like that movie star that is getting 90 dys in jail, she deserves more. She knows what Yes and No means and she ignored it, no special treatment for the idols, people in the lime light. She did the crime do the time....They should get more because they are idols for the young/old and then they will try to do the same and get away with it. Some people don't have any morals or respect like the good old days.


Mark Borsenik   July 8th, 2010 9:43 pm ET

It's a bad move.


Michael Armstrong Sr.   July 8th, 2010 9:44 pm ET

Hes going to go for the money this guy has no honer .


Dave Johnson   July 8th, 2010 9:54 pm ET

Remember Jerry West, Elgin, and Wilt. They didn't dominate as their talent would dictate. Only one basketball at a time. Don't award the Heat the trophy yet.


Genske   July 8th, 2010 10:14 pm ET

Larry – Sid Rosenberg and Steven A. Smith were great – honestly the best credibility and made the most sense of the night – great show, much better than watching ESPN debacle!! You need to have Sid on for all sports related material – he was great and makes great observations and doesnt just go along with the rest......


Smith in Oregon   July 8th, 2010 11:08 pm ET

Congratulations to Larry King and his wife on kissing and making up, voiding the previous martial difficulty's. I'm proud of you Larry!

Patching up a marriage shows the character and strength of those involved to the CNN community and the world.

Well Done Larry King!


ZRDCT57   July 8th, 2010 11:16 pm ET

It's too late now but I agree with Brianna.
LeBron should have stayed in Ohio where people appreciate home-grown talent. Maimi will ruin him.


Math   July 9th, 2010 12:20 am ET

"the world awaits LeBron decision" come on, the world is not that small, how many % of the world care about this...


Rick Cornett   July 9th, 2010 12:49 am ET

Mr. Rosenberg is such a sensationalist..where was he when the Los Angeles Lakers had James Worthy, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Mycal Thompson, Byron Scott, Keith Wilkes and 2 other #1 picks ?

How about Dr. J, with George McGinnis, Andrew Toney and 2 other allstars? There is no guarantee that the Heat will win a NBA Crown.


Sayeed   July 9th, 2010 12:55 am ET

Hey Larry what happened to the MVP Kobe? You haven't invited him or any of the NBA Back to back Champions-The Lakers!
Are anti-laker?
No segment about the world cup soccer? Is this how you end your legacy, not focusing on the biggest sport in the world?
Let me remind you, its soccer, not Basketball!


angel   July 9th, 2010 12:56 am ET

i just think that its sad that the people who claim to love him and follow him. are turning there backs on him.He gave all he had.so if your a real james fan you will follow him were he goes no matter what.


Paul   July 9th, 2010 1:02 am ET

U know i was in floirda when the nba finals was going on and i seen people wearing shirts that was pink and on those shirts it said princess Lebron so for miami to seem so happy. What about when cleveland who yet called him king and for folks down south call him princess i just dont see how the man could walk away from a palace into a barbie diamond castle it just dont make sence and i would like to say thanks lebron for the 7 years u gave but im sure we will survive up north without you u let all of us down and without looking back.


danielle   July 9th, 2010 3:58 am ET

FIRST OF ALL LEBRON JAMES IS THE S*** BUT KOBE IS LAUGHING AT HIM SO HE'S GOTTA STOP & STEP HIS GAME UP A NOTCH. HE COULDN'T DO IT IN CLEVELAND BUT HE HAS A LOT BETTER CHANCE IN MIAMI B/C HE ACTAULLY HAS SOME TALENT AROUND HIM NOW. DO YA THANG LEBRON. I C U NTHE FINALS, THEY R WRONG U DO NOT BELONG IN NEW YORK


MJ   July 9th, 2010 5:53 am ET

Larry,

Why is nobody talking about the influence of Jiggaman Iceberg Slim Jay-Z?


James   July 9th, 2010 8:21 am ET

My understanding is that only the Miami owners knew his decision prior to his announcing it on ESPN. One has to wonder why he would not have extended what one could call at least a professional courtesy by calling the Cavalier owners before the announcement. The fact that he did not speaks volumes.


LORENZO   July 9th, 2010 8:59 am ET

WHAT WILL HE DO W/HIS MANSION IN AKRON ?...HOW MANY CHILDREN DOES HE HAVE ?...I THINK MIAMI WILL BE A PLEASANT CHANGE..ALTHO I FEEL BADLY FOR CLEVELAND...THERE'S AN END TO EV. BEGINNING & A BEGINNING TO EV. END ...


Vallary   July 9th, 2010 10:47 am ET

Why is this such a big deal? I haven't never watch this guy play. But, people that I have talked to have follow this guy and they say he is the best next thing coming. Since Micheal Jordan. I am sorry there is no other than Micheal Jordan. I am from his home town and I watch him in his college days on up. I seen Micheal Jordan and Charles Barkley one time on a talk show and Micheal Jordan said that" in his day you had to show talent, then the money came." I will never forget that. It is so true in sports today. Companies and team sign this big deals and then the next thing you hear is the player is running around on his wife, drugs, shootings and beating people up. It seems like no body wants to play the game it is all about the money. It looks to me that up and coming stars of tomorrow would take a lesson from the past players and come out and do right by the fans, families and the SPORT


Washington, DC   July 9th, 2010 11:34 am ET

LeBron, billions of American wish you all the best in life. Fans worldwide are confident that you'll bring home the Championship Title for many years. It is not appropriate when "Guilt-Trippers" commit libel, slander, and defamation of character against LeBron for the excercise of his constitutional rights. LeBron made a brilliant choice by removing himself from such "guilt-ridden surroundings". LeBron is a superior athlete and an excellent sportsman. It's criminal, a bad sport needs a mega-dose of sportsmanship therapy in the form of monetary penalties for violation of LeBron's freedoms.
