The Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend

Ohio Governor John Kasich has made the Dallas Mavericks honorary citizens of Ohio for today. While not mentioning LeBron "take my talents to South Beach" James by name, he joins Dan Gilbert and other "Cavs for Mavs" with an excellent swipe:

"Whereas, NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Dirk Nowitzki chose to re-sign with the Dallas Mavericks in the summer of 2010, forgoing free agency and keeping his talents in Dallas, thus remaining loyal to the team, city and fans for whom he played his entire career"

The full Resolution is on the Governor's site. I'm sure the Heat will win the championship some year, but it sure is nice for us Cavs fans that it wasn't this year. The self-titled King still chokes in the fourth quarter, just like he did in Cleveland.

Excellent, Roger!

I usually don't post on sports threads, but I must say I don't understand all this craziness about LeBron James. Professional athletes are, well, professionals. They are mercenaries. I simply don't understand why people expect them to act like soldiers in a cause. This is an ENTERTAINMENT, a BUSINESS -- grown men bouncing an orange ball, period.

If sports is a major source of meaning in a person's life, that's truly sad.
