Dear Lebron James,

Dear Lebron James,

I know your contract is up soon and you have a decision to make.  Allow me to give you some advice.  Stay in Cleveland.  Why?  Because the greatest players stay with one team.  Think about it Lebron, the majority of the greatest players in history have had all of their success with one franchise.  Jordan, Magic, Bird, Olajuwon, Worthy, Stockton, Malone, Drexler, David Robinson, Elgin Baylor, Abdul-Jabbar, Isaiah Thomas, etc....  Sure some of those players went to another team for a year or two at the end of their career but all of their success was with one team. 

I know we live in a different day and age but there is something special about creating success where you are rather than finding it somewhere else.  This goes beyond basketball and sports in general.  The greatest businessmen don't hop from company to company; they create a dynasty.    

Don't take the easy way out Mr. James.  Take a pay cut if you have to in order to get some help and make it up in endorsements.  It will be worth it in the long run.

What would you do?
