That's right. I called him mine. I claim him. Look, since I dislike so many athletes and coaches, and since I make that so very clear, can't I just this once admit how much I do like one? Because I really do like LeBron James.
And the Cavaliers just did right by him. They got him some help, and not another prosthetic leg to add to the pair already propping up Zydrunas Ilgauskas. They got him Shaquille O'Neal, who's too old to be the dominant Shaq who teamed with Kobe Bryant for all those NBA titles or even the almost-dominant Shaq who helped Dwyane Wade win one in Miami.
He's past his prime, but Shaq is still good enough to dramatically upgrade the Cleveland frontcourt, which is what LeBron needed. So as a big fan of my boy LeBron, I want to welcome The Big Paterno to Cleveland.
