Realized today that what I really love most about sports is not the game itself. It’s about the passion, the attachment, and how it affects our lives….

The big story is not about Miami, the “big three,” or dynasty. It’s about tragedy. Yes, Shakespeare had it right. “I don’t know that any other professional athlete in our country means as much to the city he plays in, as LeBron means…. meant to Cleveland….” – – Gary Parrish, cbssports.com.

A hometown hero brings a city back to life. He is the “Chosen One.” He becomes its heart & soul. Then he betrays the city like a thief in the night. He can never return. It’s more than a sports story. You have to go back to Greek mythology to find a story as big as this….
