When LeBron James made the decision to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers this past summer, supporters of the Miami Heat probably felt the same way Cavs fans did when James spurned them for South Beach in 2010.
With the 2014-15 NBA season half over, and the Cavaliers struggling at just one game over .500, Heat owner Micky Arison appeared to take the following Twitter jab at James, retweeting two posts from Forbes before wishing longtime Heat guard Dwyane Wade a “happy birthday,’’ as seen in the screenshot below.
Arison may still be bitter towards James’s choice to leave Miami after the Heat made four straight NBA Finals appearances and won two titles in James’s four seasons in Miami. His retweets of Forbes saying Miami is first on the “happiest places to work’’ list, while Cleveland “ranks as the unhappiest place to work in the country’’ don’t seem to be mere coincidence.
Arison’s own team isn’t faring any better than James’s Cavs, however, as the four-time defending Eastern Conference champions sit at 18-22 entering Saturday, a far cry from the 29-11 record they held through 40 games last season.
