To me it shows that the franchise was loyal to LeBron. In hindsight it was dumb to allow him to walk all over the franchise, but they really didn't know he was doing to rip their hearts out on national TV.
I didn't think he was going to leave after announcing his hour-long TV special, because I didn't think he would be that heartless/classless. I was wrong.
Cleveland fans booed him in the last game of the celtics series, and several times during the year and his career,
they must have hurt him too.
