For all those wondering how Miami Heat owner Micky Arison would respond to LeBron’s decision to take his talents back to Cleveland, Arison proved to display a level of class that was in stark contrast to Cavs owner Dan Gilbert’s hater letter back in 2010.
After news broke, Arison sent out the following tweet:
I am shocked & disappointed in today’s news. However I will never forget what Lebron brought us for 4 years. Thanks for memories @KingJames

Although Arison burdens most of the responsibility for LeBron’s departure, mainly the release of the then 2nd blackest dude on the team Mike Miller after the Heat won t heir 2nd straight championship in 2013, it is good to see that Arison handled the decision with respect, and chose to wisely give LeBron an “appreciate ya black man,” instead of trying to throw shade.
