    Sounds like LeBron wasn't involved. Besides, this is probably more (better?) publicity than the Baker would have received otherwise. Shrugs.

    As someone working in a pastry kitchen owned by a world-famous pastry chef, I can say I'd turn that cake away, too. No way in hell is that cake worth $3000. The shop I work for would sell a cake that size for maybe $600 (and remember, this shop is owned by a name people recognize). And the cake is fugly, too. I've seen prettier cakes at Walmart. And according to the article, it looks like she agreed to do the cake pro-bono. She has no right to any kind of compensation if that's the case. Read the fine print before you agree to ANYTHING. Duh.

    Oh, LOL, it's LeBron. At first I thought this was another Justin Bieber rant thread.

    I don't see where there is a reason to dislike Lebron for this?

    This.

    I remember I used to hate LeBron(still not a big fan) until I watched the movie, More Than a Game. Something about that movie made me like LeBron. I suggest anyone who knows anything about LBJ should watch it.

    Im not a Big fan ( wasn't even before )of Lebron, not for what he did but for how he did it. but even so he is barely involved in this, the baker should have gotten something in writing guaranteeing her cake would be used. As for the price/value of the cake i am not going to judge as we don't have hard numbers to look at.

    This article makes me pissed beyond reason. It makes me mad at life! I mean, WTF?! Why can't I afford a $3,000 cake? :cry 

    /sarcasm

    LeBron or whoever refusing a cake doesn't say much to me; he still can't play in the 4th quarter.

    3,000 is too much. Ugh! People and their money-scheming ways these days.

    I don't care for Lebron either, but this didn't involve him directly.

    Like others have said, sounds like she's getting more than $3000 in free advertising out of this.
