Forgetting is hard to do

I have been a dyed in the wool Cleveland Cavaliers fan since I was old enough to watch basketball. Cleveland Ohio is my hometown and it was just natural. I watched the Cavs lose to The Chicago Bulls many times in some agonizing ways (last minute three point shots by his ariness come immediately to mind). I brushed it off and took up the mantra that "there was always next season".
Time went on Cleveland got worse and then, the local and international media started showing highlights from a high school basketball team in Akron Ohio. A small to medium sized city south of Cleveland Ohio. The media showed highlights from a high school game because the kid playing the game was really good. His name is Lebron James and in high school he was crushing records and playing at a collegiate level. While Lebron was leading his high school team to victory the Cleveland Cavs had the worst record in the NBA. The Cavs got the first round draft pick and used it to draft the hometown hero Lebron James.
Lebron lead the Cavs in his seven year tenure to a few playoff appearances and even a shot at the championship (the team was swept by the San Antonio Spurs)
During his tenure he faced criticism for the teams lack of a championship. The blame was put on everyone fellow team mates of court romances. Then when he became a free agent Lebron James had an hour long press conference and let the public know that he would leave the Cavs and play for the Miami Heat
Fans including me were irate. The Lebron jersey was burned and I rooted against the player every chance I got. Lebron spent four years in Miami on a team full of all stars and the team won two championships 50 % isn't bad unless you are on a team of champions. After his four years (which just eneded) Lebron signed a contract with the Cavs and is going to start playing again. I am a Cavs fan but I really don't like Lebron James
Now I am divided I want the team to succeed by not by making deals with the devil

The triangle offence is the best way to go in the NBA. Especially with the strong forward position.
I would love to see the Cavs pick up a really good guard because I like the shoot and run offence.
Now as far as grudges go I am trying hard to forgive and forget and I bet I will be more inclined to forget when Lebron starts putting some points on the boards.
It was good that Lebron did not do the media thing again and maybe he has learned something
we will see but before that is football season
