If this was Dirk Nowitski or Steve Nash people would have been like oh it was great TV and way to go raising money for the kids

Let a black man do it and he's attention whoring, they did the same the to kobe when he went on the radio When's the last time somebody called Donald Trump an attention wh0ore? But Diddy's a **** right??

But its ok for eli manning, roger clemens, and brett farve to stunt on teams openly in public, I aint see no Q rating reports then. Nobody was on tv burning Johnny Damon's jersey

Racism still alive, ya'll just be concealing it.
hahahah youre just ignoring how many haters favre and eli have.

race did play a role. Bret Favre gets no hate for the team hoping he does because hes white. Ben Rothlesberger is not getting any heat from the news or fans cause hes white.


Race has alot to do with the way white america responds to things an athlete does. If Michael Vick was white, he would not have gotten nearly as much hate as he did and still does now.

Of course racism is alive, it is human nature, so is reverse racism, ex. Mentioning Nash and Dirk JUST because they are white.

Until they lower his salary, and or strip him of his constitutional rights then Lebron is in a great position, better than most people regardless of race would love to be 'hated' enough to make millions.

Media slavery has you stirring up unnecessary controversy.

the q rateing study was done by 90 % hunksy thats why there top six of most hated people are black

how clemons and brett dont make the list can tell you that

and there is no such thing as the race card its just white people being white people they have to have a black face to blame or hate thats just how it is

it's because he's a coward pus*y who turned the NBA into the WWF not because he's black. he feels like he is entitled to a ring.

3 of them planned to play together since they signed the same extension. To avoid tampering they went to all the meetings and played with the fan's heads to act like other teams had a shot. not only did he need an olympic team to win, he needed to get other teams to gut their rosters to do it.


he messed around with the emotions of some hardcore fan bases like the bulls and knicks. you telling me if you are mad he didn't go to your team you're a racist?

Dude clearly can't look himself in the mirror and keep it real...

The Drawn out courting process like a 16 year old girl s**t combined with the ESPN special is why people are mad at the kid. Nothing else.

And I'm one of the few people who's opinion on him hasn't changed... ... I could give a s**t less about that whole situation. Dude still balls out of his mind, and I still look forward to watching him play... Even more so now...

But he did make himself look like a completely self absorbed attention wh0ore.

if you do a poll and divide the responders by race... guess what... your results are going to reflect a racist attitude

If a white player left a team that was guaranteed to miss the playoffs without him, in a town where historically none of the professional teams are of a playoff caliber, he'd get the same hate as Lebron. Don't compare him to Dirk or Steve Nash, their situations are completely different.

Lebron is dumb for feeding into this nonsense though. He'd be better off acknowledging over and over again that The Decision was a bad idea until the question goes away.

unfortunatley success has alot to do with it, when you factor in some of these other players!

people seem to be quicker to forgive a winner. its not right, but it happens all of the time in sports.
if lebron became a winner...im sure the people would start to forget the drama. but as of now..this incident has defined his celebrity.

Steve Nash was in a different situation? His team was ballin and he left for money reasons. When Cuban said why didn't he play like a MVP for us, I didn't any stories about Nash was tanking in Dallas or he betrayed his friends in Dallas for money. Dirk opted out his deal for what? To be a drama queen, exactly.

dude it all depends on if you're a hated sports figure prior to the televised event

i pictured in my head AROD doing this, and i saw him getting hated on just as bad...

BUT IF JETER DID IT, nobody would hate

if brett favre did this, people would applaud... if peyton manning did it, people would applaud.. BUT IF ROETHLISBERGER OR VICK DID IT, they'd hate

if tiger woods didnt get caught in a scandal, people would applaud him for making a career decision on tv... if jordan did it in his prime, people would've applauded...

i dont think that race has much to do about this... LEBRON WAS THE MOST HATED SPORTS FIGURE BEFORE the "decision"... so im not buying the race excuse
Far from it, Brett Farve has done a 3 month long Decision every summer for the past 3 years, and you had people last year saying he should've won MVP. Fans begging him to come back, video of him driving to the airport...and it didn't come close to the backlash lebron got.

Be for real, Kevin Kolb has more haters than Eli and that dude hasn't done anything to anybody.
