I think it's a great underdog story (city of Cleveland / Ohio) and a great basketball move (Cavs young core / picks + LeBron in prime).
More fallout: Lin to the Lakers to clear room for Houston to get to get Bosch from Miami.
Lin averages 18 / 8, huge Asian vote, starts the All Star Game! :)
As a true NYC Fan are you not concerned around speculation - Melo going to the Bulls. Phil expected a decision yesterday... Laker's out- Bulls or Knicks.

All I know is that nobody is coming to Dallas. Not Carmelo Anthony nor the GOP convention. Big D lost out on both counts.
Update: After a masterfully displaying a sincere and humble desire to finish his career from 'that whence he sprung', LeBron has aparrently decided he's 'Going Home...', just for a visit.
Though it should be stressed that the heartfelt homecoming could easily blossom into a more lasting one, depending on how much more TV money the prodigal son will squeeze deserve from the Cavs in 2 years, once the new network negotiations are re-bid with Fox joining the frenzied hunt and driving up the Jamesian payday.
Who could blame him? It just doesn't make sense to leave all that money on the kitchen table.
Basketball is a team sport.
Jordan and Jackson figured that out in Chicago bringing in Rodman, Grant, Pippen, et al to wrap around Jordan and his unique skills.
Have you scoped the Cavalier roster lately? (note the Deng isn't there anymore as Miami just snatched him up) 2 year contract? Rings? please.
