Definitely not. Lebron embarrassed and abandoned all of Cleveland with that stupid one hour long announcement. I completely agree with this list.

No. Brett Favre is the #1 sports traitor of all time. He is the Benedict Arnold of sports come on. WTF kind of list is this? Get it right.

Also, it`s kinda drated up that former LeBron fans would rather keep him chained unhappily in cleveland than let him win and be happy somewhere else.

He`s not a traitor in my opinion because he doesn`t owe cleveland anything. It`s cleveland fans who owe LeBron for the 7 years he gave them (not to mention the millions of dollars he brought the city in endorsements, etc).

It`s not like LeBron joined a rival team or anything. He was a free-agent and hightailed it out of cleveland. I don`t blame him.

Where in the hell is Roger "dooshbag" Clemens on this list? (Yeah, I misspelled it on purpose)

He went from the Red Sox to the Yankees just like Wade Boggs and the others!

In the Turkish football (soccer what ever i don`t care) leauge a player got stabbed on the pitch for going to fenerbahce from galatasaray. Stay classy galatasaray. That rhymes.

the TV thing does make him a Dbag, but still he is no traitor. what did the Cavs do for him to try to keep him here? their interviews for resigning appealed to his sense of humor and it being his town, not whats important like winning a ring.

either way, miami heat doesn`t have a team that can contend right now. i say 50 wins next season, and out in round 2 or 3 of the playoffs.

in reality he did not even sign onto a better team, and as a cleveland fan i would not rank him above model, noticing that we had 4 reps in that top 25 makes me sad as they didnt even bring up jim thome

The only one of these that I`ve heard of is LeBron James. I guess that`s my fault though for living in England. :|

No, when they go on national television in a one hour special to, in essence, say f you I`m going someplace else....that`s what makes them a traitor...and a douchebag

so whenever a player becomes a free agent and sign onto a better team in hopes to win a championship, they are a traitor?
