The only thing that would make "The Decision" special weirder is if Kanye jumped out and took center stage. -Twitter

I'm suspicious. I'm suspicious about the whole system. I think it buried [Cleveland]. It's going to bury them for a while with the combination of your best player ever [leaving] and then keeping him in the same conference where you got to play him four times.

Not surprised by LeBrons decision to go to Miami. Yet I'm shocked to discover he has at least 68 bottom teeth. And counting.

"It's not the traditional way that players usually go about delivering a message. But with LeBron being the caliber player he is with everybody on pins and needles wanting to find out where he was going, I wouldn't really blame it on LeBron. I would blame it on the media. I would blame it on the outlets that allowed it to happen. If you weren't going to like it, then you don't watch it. It is what it is. LeBron did what was best for him. He did what was best for his career and his family. I feel bad for the fans of Cleveland, because he invested his time and his heart for seven years with them and did all he could to help them win a championship. I feel that it's the owner's job to build a team around him and to make that possible. And it didn't happen. His contract was up, and he went elsewhere. That's it."

"You have to play the game. You have to go out and win it, but they'll certainly have a great chance. They have a great chance, and that's all you can ask for. There's no question about it that they become the favorites along with Boston to win the East. The East has certainly gotten better. It's not getting any easier. You have three guys, All-Stars, in the prime of their career. That's a heckuva team to matchup up against.''
