Miami Heat Owner Micky Arison Takes Pot Shot against LeBron James

Micky Arison, Israeli American businessman who runs Carnival cruise lines and is owner of Miami Heat, seems not to have gotten over losing LeBron James to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Who can blame him, when, with LeBron on the team, the Heat made four straight NBA finals and won two of them. Since then, neither the Heat nor the Cavaliers have been doing so well. Perhaps LeBron was not only the Heat’s lucky charm, but a local one; the magic seemed to work at Miami.

But, as much as one tries to let bygones be bygones, there is a hint Arison is still upset. He posted a birthday greeting on Twitter to Heat guard Dwayne Wade and beneath it, made note of a Forbes article which rated Miami as the happiest place in the nation to work and Cleveland Ohio as one of the worst places to work. Arison added the caption, “Cleveland Ohio ranks as the unhappiest place to work in the country.” While LeBron scored 36 points in the Cavs recent victory over the Lakers, in a head to head with Koby Bryant, the Cavs did have a 6 game losing streak, and it isn’t much fun for Cleveland’s Israeli coach, David Blatt, either.
