Yesterday, the Miami Dolphins took out full page ads in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Palm Beach Post and the Miami Herald welcoming LeBron James and Chris Bosh to Miami and thanking - yes, thanking - Dwyane Wade for staying with the Heat.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson actually said that Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert views LeBron James as a "runaway slave." Gilbert made a bunch of asinine comments after James announced he would sign with the Heat.
Jackson said Gilbert's comments "personify a slave master mentality."
According to the Nielsen ratings, approximately 9.95 million people watched James announce his decision to leave Cleveland and sign with Miami on ESPN Thursday.
