Shaq was pretty much forced out of LA, then started to decline a year later. Those situations aren't similar. LeBron's first move was fine, but going back to Cleveland only because he thought he could compete wasn't. Now he's going to leave his home again in order to chase a ring because he can't beat GS? It's getting ridiculous!
He is hopping teams and ring chasing yet he still only has 3 right now! What if Hakeem joined the Bulls?
LeBron IS one of the greatest but the team jumping is something that I just can't agree with.

To set the record straight, Shaq was not "forced" out of LA.
HE made the bed and then had to sleep in it.
-he was already on the decline, and wasn't a hard worker.
-he has a long history of feuding with teammates, Kobe being just the greatest. He had a large part in the locker room divide.
-he was continually disrespectful to management and Dr Buss.
-he skipped Chick's (the greatest Laker) funeral.
-he publicly called out the Laker brass, and then took great offense when he was criticized publicly.
He demanded the trade, and then was butt hurt when they gave it to him.

Whether or not he was forced out of LA was completely irrelevant to the point I was making. I typed an entire paragraph and you commented on half of the 1st sentence.
