The Zionist Conspiracy

I understand why the city of Cleveland is furious with Lebron James. But the make believe fury on the part of New York tabloids is ridiculous.
James has no ties to New York, and both of the New York teams have in recent years been lousy. It was worthwhile for both the Knicks and the Nets to present their pitches and try to convince him to come. But why would anyone here be offended by his decision to play elsewhere?
While I'm on the subject of basketball, something seems amiss with the Nets. Rod Thorn is not leaving because he suddenly decided to retire after announcing that he'd be staying. There's more to the story - which we'll eventually learn. Thorn's departure is itself not necessarily a bad thing; my concern is that the Nets' new Russian imports prompted him to leave by insisting on some bizarre new approaches that aren't consistent with the way professional sports franchises are operated in the U.S. and Canada.
