I guess Derrick Rose suddenly died or something.

LeBron James isn't the most articulate man alive, but he's well spoken in comparison to young people from his type of environment.
Environment?

n*gga please, LeBron James doesn't need to connect with sh*t. That decision sh*t can't be undone by some PR, it can only be fixed by undeniable performances and winning rings.

See Shaq, see Kobe, hell, see Ron Artest.

none of you can read he is basically saying you cant aleinate the popele you want you buy your products.The same way lupe cant do urban music and diss the urban president. yea mike might have talked in 3rd person but u never heard him tell the fans "your broke so get use to it cuase i still will be lebron and you still will be lebroke" you can stan his comments all you want to but if your defending him you cleary cant see he dissed the sh*t out of you as well
Meh...true and false. Mike was arrogant but just went about it a different way and had a far less aggressive media age. Let's make no mistake about these facts. How can we crucify Bron for makin a decision that was best for him yet say he's arrogant etc. because its not what we may have wanted? But we praise Mike for havin a song and want people to celebrate BEIN LIKE HIM based on a song (BE LIKE MIKE)?! May be wrong but that's pretty arrogant however u look at it or try to spin it, likable or not. He didnt offend me because he spoke the truth and it doesn't change my tax bracket, yours or his. Could he not have said it? Maybe. But this is America and we say what we please. People take things how they want and can make it into something he didn't ACTUALLY say kuz they're mad n already hate. We think we know what he meant but don't know kuz all we have to go on is what exactly he said! Problems don't just mean bein broke either btw. Hating him for the reasons people think are justified is childish and concerns me. He was asked a question and answered it honestly kuz those same people hating or who got offended arent buyin into his brand regardless. Nike etc. so what really is he losing by essentially sayin fu*k the HATERS, not all common folk with less $ than him which is the majority of his fans or people who are indifferent?

Why is he not? So he sounds like a complete idiot to you? You know how many interviews this dude has done over the past 10 + years? Nobody had sh*t to say about how he handled himself in interviews until "the decision" special. Maybe you should be done.
if hes done so many interviews then he should be exceptional at them by now? and hes always been terrible at them, even before the decision. but after years of arrogance and the way he allowed his true character to be displayed recently, all the passes people have given over the years have come back to bite him in the a.ss.

His true character? This dude has had his character attacked ruthlessly and recklessly ever since the Boston series last year. He hasn't done anything vicious enough to warrant the kind of hate he's getting.

Who are we to attack his true character off of sound bites. There was no malice intent with "the decision" special. There was no malice intent with the move. The only thing that we can even argue as being bad is his recent comment about haters having to go back to their lives tomorrow...which was a sign that all the bullsh*t hate he's receiving is getting to him.

I can't even remember or think of any pro basketball player facing the pressure and the hate that he's facing right now and I used to think the treatment Kobe got was bad. If you ask me, he's doing pretty damn good just not to come out and say I'm worth 300 mil regardless and fu*k all yall....but he hasn't.

How dare we question his character and don't even know the man?

all Lebron needs to do is win. He's already winning, but win in the form of NBA championships, MVP's, etc...

n*ggas have r*ped people, k!lled dogs, drove drunk and k!lled folks, shot other people, shot themselves, called fans stupid a.ss bi*ches, punched fans in the mouth, etc....

and it was all forgiven because....time heals all wounds, new n*ggas take over and do new dumb sh*t, and....they win.

what is this "hate" you guys keep talking about?

do they make fun of him? yeah they do..that's all i really see tho. he's had backlash for being diva'ish for the decision..and he's had it for celebrating before the pre season started and he's gotten backlash for saying they're gonna win 8 championships but i dont see anything about how bad of a person he is..or anything remotely close to "hate." is that some hypothetical bullsh*t you guys make up? seems like it. it's sports media. this is how it is for any superstar that falls short. up here in canada, all we're reading about is how sh*tty the canucks were. that's the nature of it. you get scrutinized for losing. that's western culture.


everything he's been criticized for had to do with sports. that's hardly hate.

Hate: feel intense or passionate hate for someone

Ask the city of Cleveland how they feel about him.

Case and point. This man may not hate LeBron but he just equated him to a cross between a baboon and and babbling idiot. This just may be how the majority of NBA fans feel about LeBron. In my opinion, its unwarranted because he hasn't done anything to warrant this kind of insult.

Just an example

You guys are saying the media hates him tho..since when?

Cleveland has a legit beef. He sh*tted on em on national tv. I'm indifferent about that because I'm not from there but I knew how I felt when vince carter left his pus*y juice on the ACC floor in tdot when he bailed out and he's not even half the icon and player lebron was. Like I said..its sports culture. Quitters and losers aren't tolerated. on a personal level, as far as the national media is concerned, I don't see the "hate" from the media that people are clamoring over.

You have to differentiate the opinions of everyday people from the actual media...people just talk sh*t just to talk it. You can't act like you've never said anything negative about any celebrity or athlete in your life..has justin beiber done anything to warrant the "hate" he gets on this messageboard? Has lil B? Waka flocka? nothing is that serious. Until this n*gga gets hit upside the head with a rock while vacationing, what you're arguing is moot.
