Has any city in the last 40 years been punched in the stomach more than...

    The Browns with The Fumble and The Drive, losing the team and the stench that is the current team.

    Never winning a World Series when they had a loaded team.

    And LeBron just shitting the bed and possibly leaving you with a wrecked franchise.

    Plus, your biggest rival to the south has 10 professional championships in these 40 years, and your biggest rival to the west has a handful as well.

    If you're talking sports, I would say yes...

    If you're not talking sports, I still might say yes.

    Browns move to Baltimore and how long does it take for the Ravens to win a title?

    Imagine what it will be like when LeBron goes to NYC or Miami or Orlando and they win a title in the next year or two...

    Imagine the reaction LeBron would get upon arrival back in Cleveland. That would not be pretty.

    Correction: LeBron did not shit the bed. Danny Ferry did, for never building a team around him, and Mike Brown did, for never developing a system that worked.

    If the Cavs keep LeBron, it's going to be because they accede to all his demands. John Calipari coaching? Done. Find a way to get Chris Bosh? Done.

    Otherwise, LeBron is going to be loving life with Derrick Rose to run the offense (instead of him), and Joakim Noah to get the rebounds (instead of him). James will go to Chicago before he goes to the Knicks, at least, he will if he wants to win a title.

    LeBron leaving Cleveland would be worse than Willie Mays' catch, Red Right 88, the Drive, the Fumble, the Shot and Edgar Renteria combined. Because it would be a native son loudly and publicly proclaiming (as many natives have as they beat feet out of town) that he can't get anywhere in Cleveland. Next year, the Cavs' "crowds" would look like their next-door neighbors'.

    I honestly feel bad for Cleveland. At least Ohio State has had a good run.

    Too much success over the last 20 years with the Pistons and Red Wings.

    Right. But if you're not talking sports, for repeated stomach punchings, I'll take Detroit.
