Jim Brown thinks LeBron James will leave because of treatment by fans


Thumbnail image for LeBron_solo.jpgAnd in today’s edition of “a celebrity with no real inside information speaks out on LeBron James” we give you Jim Brown.

Brown — one of the greatest lacrosse players in the history of the sport, and he also played a little football — said he thinks LeBron is leaving Cleveland, as FanHouse reported.

The reason: The way the Cleveland fans are treating him.

“I think he’s gonna leave, and I think that the treatment that he’s getting right now is going to be the motivating factor,” Brown told a Baltimore radio station last weekend in an interview aired Tuesday.

“You know, it’s so unfortunate that a man that’s got so much would feel so bad right now because of what he couldn’t do. I think he’s being treated unfairly,” Brown said. “I think the expectations were too high, and I don’t think he’s gonna stay in Cleveland because of it. I think as one man, there’s only so much you can do, and for people to analyze you and to basically say humiliating things about you, when you’ve given all those things through the years to that franchise, I think it’s an atrocity.”

I don’t think the expectations were too high, and I think James himself set them. He wants a title. No doubt Jim Brown has an understanding of the psyche of Cleveland. However, whether or not he stays in Cleveland is a decision that should be based on a number of factors, including if he can win a title there. If he signs in Cleveland again, Cavs fans will have no problem with him.
