If you are like me and really despise Lebron James cocky attitude, then here is yet another reason to increase your hate toward this guy. During last night’s blowout victory over the Chicago Bulls, Lebron thought that it would be a good idea to celebrate the win by dancing on the sideline. Just like I did, the Chicago Bulls Joakim Noah took exception to his dancing. Via Cleveland.com:
“You’re losing the way you’re losing and guys are rubbing it in your face, dancing and all that,” Noah said. “I have a lot of respect for LeBron. It’s just a frustrating situation.”
Instead of just sitting back and being scared of Lebron’s stardom, Noah stuck up for himself and his team. While Lebron was shooting a free throw late in the fourth quarter, up 18 points, Noah started yapping at Lebron from the bench. Being the cocky S.O.B that Lebron is he decided to walk toward the Chicago bench to confront Noah, between his two free throws. The two yapped back and forth before other teammates, coaches, and referees broke it up. Lebron went on to hit his next free throw and the Cavs won the game in dominating fashion.
I just went to mention that I am a supporter of players having “swagger”, WHILE on the floor. As long as the celebration is not insulting to the other team, I am all for it. What Lebron James did was just another act to get attention on him, and add insult to a Chicago Bulls team that was already down and out.
Being a Celtics fan, and seeing Gino on the jumbo-tron during Celtics games, I know that sometimes players want to have fun and enjoy victories. When the Celtics dance to Gino it is usually calm and collective dancing, during a time out. Lebron took it a step too far by standing out to the crowd and dancing while the game was going on. This is just poor sportsmanship and another reason for fans like me to despise Lebron James.
I know there will be some fans out there that approve of Lebron’s dancing, so in a polite way please comment on why you think Lebron was not wrong by doing this.
