Lately I’ve been busy with non other than the World Cup from FIFA. This World Cup thing is serious, even though my own country didn’t make it there. Well if my country did make it to the WC Finals, I think it would the end of the world.

LeBron James to Lakers

So, over a few things happen that I think I should write about it. Firstly, LeBron James. Well, I heard about his departure from Cavaliers around July First but I’ve read rumors about him for so long, you know especially when the Playoff is over, by the way Cavaliers lost to Worriors. NBA reported that that “LeBron James agrees to four-year, $154-million contract with Los Angeles Lakers“.

My first thought is “What the f***, d*** it m***********”. I guess I never get over his Heat day. I think he was really good back on his heat days. When he moves to Cavaliers I think that it’s going to be tough for him, well, it kind of did and did not. Now more word on that.

Now with Lakers, I think he just wanted to end his career in Los Angeles. I think no more championship what so ever for him. I mean what the hell is he’s thinking going into Western Conference, other than ending his career there.

Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus

I think Cristiano’s case is pretty similar with King James. I heard this news when I was watching French versus Belgium, when the commentator said “something something this have just been confirmed, Cristiano Ronaldo is going to Juventus and something something”. I was like ‘what the h***’, but on the second thought I think it’s good for him.

You know, when you’re ending your high flying career why not going into something subtle even though so much money involve, $154 million for LeBron and $131.5 million for Cristiano. One thing that I noticed it that both of them agreed to a four years contract.

If you count the age for both of them they are going to be 37 which a good age to retire for athlete. Oh yeah did you notice both of them are 33.

So now, for Cristiano, I think that best that the he can do is winning Serie A and anything within Italy. The UEFA Champions League, nah, it’s hard.

Update: Real Madrid have released an official video to express their gratitude with message:

Real Madrid C. F. inform that, as per Cristiano Ronaldo’s wishes and at his request, the club has allowed the player to complete his move to Juventus F. C.

Real Madrid would today like to place on record its thanks to a player who has shown himself to be the best in the world and made his mark on one of the greatest periods in our club’s history and on the world game.

Apart from the titles he has lifted, the honours secured and the on-field achievements during these nine years, Cristiano Ronaldo has been a role model in terms of commitment, hard work, responsibility, talent and self-improvement.

He became Real Madrid’s leading all-time goalscorer, having scored 451 goals in his 438 appearances. In total, he won 16 pieces of silverware, including four European Cup crowns, three of which came in successive years, with these four continental triumphs coming in the past five seasons. In terms of individual honours, as a Real Madrid player, he won the Ballon d’Or on four occasions, The Best award twice and claimed the Golden Shoe three times, amongst many other accolades.

Cristiano Ronaldo will forever be one of Real Madrid’s biggest icons and will represent a unique figure for future generations.

Real Madrid will always be his home.

A Fan View

As a fan for both of the team, by fan means that I support Lakers if they are going against other, but if they are going against the Heat, I will support the Heat, just as Juventus, others are fine but facing Arsenal, I will root for Arsenal, I will always root for them. But my hope is not much.

Talking about being a fan, finally I can see my favorite team French going to the final of the WC Finals. I think I will save the WC review after it ended. My hope, French versus England. If French did meet England, I wish that England win the cup even though I don’t think that they will.
