No doubt. I live in St. Louis right now and consider it my favorite place to live, including my hometown of Tampa and my alma mater town Gainesville (gasp!). I hate the winters because our kids drive us nuts stuck inside the house, but there is more to life than weather. Better education, better civil services, better healthcare, better cultural amenities, etc. Of course, ask my Houston-bred wife and she would trade our entire family for a chance to live in Tampa. To each one's own. But in my opinion James and his crew did not base their opinion upon a preference for living in Cleveland over Miami; they based it on the deep roots to the communities where they were raised (let's not forget that the guy who brokered this entire situation, Rich Paul, is the only guy in Lebron's camp from Cleveland proper), their reservations about the directions of the Miami organization versus the possibilities of Cleveland's roster, the Heat's unwillingness to accommodate James's entourage the way Cleveland did, and James's own personal guilt over leaving Cleveland. This wasn't as simple as Cleveland > Miami. As a matter of fact, I don't think that had a blessed thing to do with it.
