Actually the 1-hour special is because ESPN threw $1.5 mil at him to do it. If he was returning to Clevelend the show would be filmed there and they would throw a huge party afterwards. Apparently TNT offered $1 mil and Bron's people went to ESPN and got $1.5 mil.

That is probably a contributing factor as well, but with this hour, I don't think he is just going to be talking about "Oh yeah, Miami will be great!", I think it will mostly be about Cleveland.

And like Nat said, who knows, we could be wrong.

I'm just saying hold your horses, son. There'll be plenty of time for whining and bitching after the announcement.

...and as far as the ego thing goes, I somewhat agree with you there, but then again we haven't seen what the special is going to be. What if it turns out to be some kind of heart-felt message? How will you feel then?

Finally, regarding your comment about the 56 of the last 70 hours being spent discussing LeBron or whatever - I have no idea where you're getting your numbers but regardless of how much time the media devotes to him, it isn't under his control what they decide to cover. He may enjoy all the hype and use it to his advantage, but first of all, he isn't in control of it, and secondly, wouldn't you do the same thing if you had the opportunity? Be honest, now...
Dude, I'm not hating on him for cashing in at all. I just hate how the three of them went about it. It's collusion. Plain and simple. Collusion is cheating to me and if it's this bad now it's only going to get worse in future years. The NBA is officially ruined to me. It's players colluding to make as much money as possible and squashing all the small market teams.

Sorry Nat but any chance Cleveland ever had of winning anything just flew out the window. Once Chris Bosh said he would play ANYWHERE with Lebron except Cleveland it was over Bro. Just sayin'

With that, I suggest we get talk about that egotistical douchebag out of what was an awesome Slayer discussion thread.

Well Said. I for one am grateful Slayer are doing these full album tours. I never heard anything about them doing Seasons so I will travel if I have to just to catch it.

More bands need to do this. Slipknot's not my favorite band but to see their s/t cd in it'e entirety would be awesome. South of Heaven would be incredible. If Overkill did Taking Over or Years of Decay I'd be right there too.

This has probably been said before, but I really think Mayhem doing all of De Mysteriis would be very special.
