At least for me.  I wrote almost two years ago that Lebron’s arrival in Cleveland was a bigger deal for me than most.  Whatever happens tonight, that’s not gonna change.  It has been a privilege to be able to watch this man play basketball in my home team’s colors, and I won’t ever watch another athlete of this stature, as regularly, for as long as I live, in any sport, let alone in my hometown.

If Lebron does leave tonight, I’ll be in mourning for a while.  A good long while.  But this Cavs fan will be thanking Lebron for all these very good years.
