Tonight Is The Night: An Open Forum

Oh you KNOW, that Stu knows where the white women at.

Regardless of what you think about the one hour ESPN special known affectionately as, "The Decision", it's still a big deal to me and millions of other people.  Keep in mind, this is no different than Signing Day except that this actually matters and could destroy an entire city.  I'm almost too nervous to type which is why I'm keeping it short, sweet, and open for discussion.

The LeBron-a-thon ends this evening.  You think that that is the case but you know that it isn't.  He's going to keep his name in the news somehow.  But anyway, everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, thinks that they have the inside scoop and are able to read between the lines.  That is stupid though.

What we know is that tonight LeBron is showing up on ESPN, in Greenwich, CT, with One Eyed Willie and he is going to drop the hammer on the sports world.  We know that the Knicks have an above average center with a shitty coach.  We know the Bulls have good young talent and the recently signed neanderthal from Utah.  We know that the Heat have his "boys".  We know that the Nets have a coach whose mouth is somehow larger than his head.  We know that the Cavs have been good to him, the city has been great to him, the local media has left him alone, and that Ohio is home.

I think that he stays home.  I said it last week, but I think that it means a lot to him that he can live his life here without cameras in his (and his family's) face 24/7.  I think that he knows how important it is to win a championship in his hometown/area.  I think that he realizes that turning your back on your biggest supporters is not what superstars in any walk of life do.  And if he called for this primetime show only to announce that he is leaving, that is the biggest dickhead move in sports history and a completely unnecessary "fuck you" to the people of NE Ohio.  The general rule of thumb is that if you leave, you let someone like Chris Broussard do it.  It's like what Bosh did.

But what do you think?  Are you going to watch Drew's show tonight?  Are you just happy that the drama is coming to a close?  What a night of TV with Big Brother 12's premiere followed by The Decision!  And wherever LeBron ends up, expect more talk about this tomorrow.  It's either going to be an epic pissed off rant or video of me crying tears of joy while shitting my pants.  Either way, YOU WIN!!!

Think LeBron knows that if he decides to leave Cleveland he's contributing to no less then 50 suicides in NE Ohio? Dan Gilbert being one of them.

Drew said...

I'll definitely be watching and I don't buy this morning's poo poo platter that ESPN is serving us about him going to Miami. Like you said, this would be the biggest dick head move to Cleveland to announce that he was bolting the city for anywhere else. I just can't believe that he will do that. If he does bolt for Miami, then Gilbert better invest in a plastic bubble to lift over the court for when the Heat come to play this year. I could see that atmosphere looking like a Columbian soccer game....or The Malice at the Palace night.

I actually wish I was in Cleveland tonight so that I could go to a bar and see what happens either way. I'd be worried about the safety of my televisions if I was a bar owner up there.

Dan Gilbert would be too busy lighting The Q on fire to collect the insurance money before killing himself.

I don't buy Miami either. Trying to piggyback a ring is what 35 year olds do, not 25 year olds.

Grumpy said...

I'll watch. I think he's leaving and they announced Jim Gray was handpicked by LeBron & Co. to be the host.

Drew said...

G$...If he does bolt do you have the explosives ready for blowing up the Q?

I'm buyin the Miami rumor. LeBron will say that he tried to recruit players to Cleveland, but in the end he couldn't pass up an opportunity to move and be on the best team in the league.

Greenberg had the worst connection this morning. He thinks that because LeBron is announcing 20 minutes from Jew York's practice facility, he's going there. Is LeBron going to go practice after he announces?? What a F'n moron.

It will be must see TV when LeBron returns to cleveland while playing on the Heat. They will need to hire TSA to get people in the stadium.. But I think it would turn into a repeat of the Browns Jaguars game with debris all over the court.

I think Cleveland is #4 on the list of teams that LeBron will go. Cleveland just got worse this offseason and there is nobody left to bring in with Lebron...at least nobody that matters. Miami makes sense if Lebron is willing to swallow his pride and start a dynasty where he is not thee man. Chicago has to be the second choice. With the Knicks in third.

Sorry Cleveland, people have actually cared about you for the last seven years. That ends tonight.

GMoney said...

Whitlock seems to think that the Cavs have a deal cooking to bring CP3 in with Bron and Byron Scott. I doubt it, but it's something.

Yeah, what makes you think that LeBron, the guy holding a damn hour long show, is going to swallow his pride and ego???

Drew said...

From Simmons column today...

19. I always thought the goal was winning rings. That's what Russell, Bird, Magic and Jordan taught us. That's what I grew up believing. But sports are different now. You're a brand as much as an athlete. In the past 72 hours, with the suspense building for his announcement, LeBron created a Twitter account, launched his own website and agreed with ESPN on a one-hour live selection show that, incredibly, was the exact same idea that a Columbus reader named Drew had in my Thanksgiving '09 mailbag … but I thought he was kidding. Now I think he's Nostradamus. Or even NostradamuSAS.



Drew from Columbus looked into the future, and here's what he saw: A world in which it was totally conceivable that an NBA superstar would sell an hour-long show in which he picked his next team and tainted his legacy in the process. I played along and pushed a "Bachelor"-type setup ("The LeBrachelor!") in which LeBron whittled 29 teams down to six, then four, then two, then one over the course of six episodes. Hell, have him hand out roses. Why not? It's not like this would actually happen, right?

GMoney said...

This is not fucking good. Drew's ego is going to be larger than LeBron's now.

STOP SUCKING HIS DICK, SIMMONS!!!

A New Experienced Me said...

I don't think you should be doing this to yourself G$...you're far too young to have nurses changing your diaper while you blankly stare at that piss stain on the wall. Good luck with your grieving process. Here's to hoping you reach the acceptance stage before knawing off your own fingers.

Tony B. said...

Drew, when is your hour long selection show for which blog you'll be regularly commenting at from now on? I mean, you've obviously out grown The Money Shot, so are you moving on up with you and a couple buddies to comment on a Miami based blog or what?

Drew said...

That's a good question Tony. I'm currently in discussions with my inner circle about that and weighing the options. There are some superstar commentators at a few other blogs that are dying for me to join them. The fact that G$ is saddled with an absurd Rudy Gay-like contract to Mr. Ace, it raises red flags about this place.

Mr. Ace said...

Drew, do you and Simmons 69 while talking Boston sports with dicks in your mouth? I imagine you do. You and Simmons would make for one hell of a fake interview..............

GMoney said...

OK, I admit, this current exchange has me laughing my sexy ass off. I'm sorry if you feel that you've outgrown this comment section, Drew. But I can tell you this much:

If you and Titus decide to move on to LA to join team Simmons, no one will ever respect your remarks again. It will just be "oh, he couldn't do it without Bill and Tril". And that will forever haunt your commenting legacy.

Home is where the heart is, bitch.

Think ESPN will do a World Cup-esque "Live from a Cleveland bar" and "Live from a Miami bar" split screen as LeBron makes his announcement?

Jeff said...

Don't worry Johnny Flynn is coming to save the cavs!!!!

GMoney said...

Correction, Jeff, as Flynn is not being shopped. We can't even fuck over the T-Wolves and EVERYONE fucks over the T-Wolves.

Drew said...

I really hope there are riots in Cleveland tonight if he leaves.

LeBron has a vacation and party set up in Miami this weekend.. Not good!

Ekali81 said...

He can't be that big of an asshole to fuck over cleveland on national primetime tv. My money is he stays in clevland because the cavs are better than the heat because Bosh is overrated. He can get used to losing to the Magic in the eastern confrence finals for the next six years

GMoney said...

Dut, if you would listen to your boy Cowherd, you would know that that story is wrong. It's pretty to hard to party on South Beach Saturday night when he is a groomsmen in Carmelo's wedding on the same evening in (wait for it) Greenwich, CT.

Mr. Ace said...

Leave it to Dut to drop the US Weekly magazine updates on us. Or did Uncle T get you hooked on PerezHilton.

ekali81 said...

Sorry man . holy shit

Mr. Ace said...

Don't you dare swallow all those pills.

GMoney said...

I'm fine. I actually have some bit of integrity. Tomorrow's post has been written and it's quite bitter.

SSReporters said...

Byron Scott should probably just opt out of his contract now.
