And he left in a manner that appeared designed to curve the knife: saying his circulation to South seashore on a nationally televised ESPN creation with a sly name ("The Decision") that echoed fifty years of Cleveland activities futility.

Out of James's treachery grew a monster.

(He didn't hold this intentions a mystery and used to be rapidly banned by means of the Miami warmth. )

The Whore of Akron is an indictment of a traitorous athlete and the tale of Raab's hilarious, profane (and profound) quest to bare the "wee jewel-box" of LeBron James's very soul.
