Mo Williams: 'Dallas just healed my HEART........'
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Friend turned foe piles on.
In Cleveland, LeBron James and Mo Williams were tight. They formed a terrific starting backcourt, and had swagger and confidence to spare.
Until The Decision went down last July.
Everything changed when James hired Jim Gray, went on ESPN, and announced he was ‘taking his talent’ to South Beach. The world started to hate -including Williams.
Should Williams hate?
Sure, the new table-setter for the Los Angeles Clippers has a right to feel frustrated with how James left. Perhaps he and Cav-nation deserved better than being dumped on national television like a second-rate reality show.
Williams can’t criticize James for what he did. Leaving was his right as an unrestricted free agent. No co-star was coming to Cleveland, no matter what owner Dan Gilbert claims.
For James it was simple: continue playing with the likes of Candace Parker’s brother in Ohio or head south, partner with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, and challenge every year for a championship.
Of course, something else may have happened behind the scenes. Something we don’t know about.
Bottom line: Williams should keep quiet. Kicking a former teammate, even one as cocky and arrogant as James, when he’s down isn’t a good look.
