LeBron: 6th Most-Hated Person in Sports
Wait, there are people out there not happy with Miami Heat superstar LeBron James?
Going on national television to tell your hometown that you’re leaving wasn’t a good move? Telling the many people who supported you after numerous NBA Playoff disappointments wasn’t a cool thing to do? Referring to yourself in third person — as if you really are a king — has turned people off?
In the least shocking James news ever, according to a Q Scores Company poll of the general population, James has a 15 percent positive score and a 37 percent negative score. Compare that to James’ highest scoring peak when 24 percent of people saw James in a positive light while 22 percent had a negative opinion of him. That’s essentially a 77 percent decline in popularity amongst the voters.
To put those statistics in perspective, the average sports personality has a 15 percent positive score and a 24 percent negative score.
According to those scores, James is officially the sixth most disliked sports personality out there behind Michael Vick, Tiger Woods, Terrell Owens, Chad Ochocinco and Kobe Bryant. In other words, James, whose life mission for seven years was to be a PR dream, is now lumped with the likes of a dog-killing felon, a serial-cheating s3x addict, two overrated, attention-chasing fools and a guy who has adultery, a s3xual a.ssault case and a tag of selfishness on his resume.
All James has done thus far is give a symbolic middle finger to his fans with “The Decision.” He hasn’t even had his first dog-f!ghting case yet.
To be fair, James is a team player. He took the Q Ratings of the rest of his teammates down with him. Dwyane Wade’s Q Score dipped from 21 in January to 15 at this point in time. Bosh’s negative score went from 21 percent in January to 35 percent today.
Not that any of this matters. James didn’t lose any endorsement deals as a result of being seen in a more negative light than the U.S. economy. Rest easy, his deals with Vitamin Water, Nike and McDonalds are still intact.
