Chris Rock on LeBron: "Most People from Cleveland Would Do the Exact Same Thing"
While Rock ideally would have liked to have seen James join the Clippers, he says he saw the move coming from a mile away and that Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert is an idiot for not trading James when he had the chance to at least get some quality players to replace him.
I said you should trade him. I said any owner, any big-ego owner would take this shot. You could've got any player -- you literally could've got Kobe Bryant. You could've got any player you wanted. You could've gotten literally any player outside of Kevin Durant and Dwight Howard. Any player. You could've got any two or three players you liked. I said this on national television. You could look it up -- you're a writer.Raab protests that the whole city thought he was coming back, but Rock isn't having any of it.
SR: We thought he was coming back.Rock goes on to theorize that James really wants to, or at least wanted to, be coached by Pat Riley, but thinks Dwyane Wade isn't going to let that happen.
CR: Why would you think he's coming back? People move from Cleveland to Miami every fucking day. They don't move from Miami to Cleveland.
SR: Because of his mother. Because of Gloria.
CR: Well, guess where his mother's living right now. In fucking Miami. I saw that coming a mile away. Are you kidding me? He's not signing his extension? Trade him right now.
SR: He signed for the three years. They all did -- he and Bosh and Wade.
CR: He didn't realize it? He's an idiot -- the owner's an idiot. You're in Cleveland, dude.
