LeBron James and NBA player power

http://news-updations.blogspot.comAs someone who grew up in the Cleveland, Ohio, I understand the anger of the Cleveland fans over the decision of the city's superstar basketball player, LeBron James, to leave Ohio in order to join the Miami Heat. Cleveland's great institutions the Cleveland Orchestra, the Cleveland Art Museum, the Cleveland Clinic evoke pride but not much joy. Pro-sports are what that makes the news and unite Clevelanders.

When I was in junior high school, students were allowed to skip the classes and go to the opening day baseball game of the Cleveland Indians. All we had to do was to show our teacher that our parents had bought us a ticket. Supporting the team, like paying local sales taxes, was looked on to as a civic duty.

What is hard to understand in the case of the LeBron James is the rage of Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert. "As you now know, that our former hero, who grew up in the very region that he deserted this evening, is no longer a Cleveland Cavalier," Gilbert wrote in an open letter to Cleveland fans. "This shocking act of the disloyalty from our home grown 'chosen one' sends the exact opposite lesson of what we would want our children to learn."
