Local sports fans may have been upset about Jamesâ€™ departure to heighten his chances at a championship, but the city of Cleveland is still reeling from the impact James has had on its economy. It wasnâ€™t just disappointment about their King skipping town for the sunshine and beachfront property of Miami, it was what he left behind. The Atlanta Post gauges the economic downturn since Jamesâ€™ departure at around $50 million for the downtown Cleveland area when you factor in nearby restaurants, ticket sales, and surrounding businesses. The Kingâ€™s Court has been decimated to a pauperâ€™s poverty; which means the money James took with him, he also brought in. Who else has that kind of impact on a community?
