    Could you please explain how they're different?

    If also love an explanation as to how Miami's pep rally in 2010 was any different than Lebrons home coming party was last night. And to quote Lebrons classy letter, "this time there will be no celebrations, no parties. It's back to work."

    I really don't see the need to explain. It is like somebody seeing the glass of water half full and another seeing it half empty. Both opinions are totally different yet they are still talking about water inside of a glass. I truly feel as though if LeBron sent out personal thank-you cards in the mail to every Heat fan season ticket holder, it wouldn't be enough.

    Personally, I just think it is ironic how Heat fans were defending LeBron after the "decision" and the rest of the world was bashing him while it seems like the opposite is true after the "letter." Of course I'm generalizing a little on both sides but you get the point.

    Heat fans aren't bashing him for the letter though. We're sitting here trying to figure out how the whole world is now praising him for doing the same damn thing they killed him for for the past four years. The letter approach doesn't bother me, the hypocrisy of the whole freaking world does.

    No I don't need a personalized thank you card, that's ridiculous. Lebetard showed how easy it is to get a billboard. He could've done that. A newspaper ad is pretty common with athletes. Include it in the letter in the paragraph about his experience in Miami. That would have been sufficient. He showed more appreciation to the people that burned his jersey then the people that defended him for the past four years. You don't think that's a little tacky?

    Not bitter at all about his decision to go home if that's where his heart is.
    It's about he way he went about it, show some respect to the organization who showed you how to win don't act like a punk.

    You hit the nail on the head. While Cleveland fan were calling him everything just short of the N word, and the rest of the fans of the NBA were calling him essentially a POS, it was Miami fans who were in his corner even though we caught an equal amount of flak for it. Then he leaves, he's once again loved by the same people who HATED him, and the only people still catching shit are Heat fans. And what makes it all that much worse, we aren't doing ANYTHING.

    Heat fans appreciate the past four years. It just really, really feels like we weren't appreciated in the least.

    No, because I really thought the letter was fine. As a Magic fan, I didn't get a letter from Dwight Howard, hmm...let me think...nope didn't get a letter from Shaq...didn't get one from Grant Hill nor did I get one from Tracy McGrady. You brought up the fact that LeBron could've done a newspaper ad. Well, I promise if he would've done that, then there would be Heat fans that would say something like "he should've done a news conference, why hide behind words." I really don't think there will ever be enough that LeBron could do to satisfy both parties everytime. However, as a casual fan, I felt as though the "letter" was different than the "decision" and one of the reasons is because he didn't say "I'm going to take my talents to South Beach" or anything like that. He even said that he would've done things differently than the "decision" if he had a chance to do it all over again.

    To me, the letter read as though he was grateful for the opportunity to win championships. I know..I know Heat fans...he didn't say the words "Thank you Heat fans" but it was imlied throughout the letter in my opinion that he was indeed grateful and thankful for the opportunity. Again, this is just my opinion but the decision and the letter are vastly different.

    I know what I think of him, but I'm not going to burn his jersey in effigy. Big difference. Are we butt hurt? You betcha. But I don't see Micky calling out his manhood on the Heat website.

    Yea, buddy of mine predicted that game a long time before it was announced. Guess the NBA likes to stir the pot for ratings.
