Alright folks, add one more thing to the “Why I hate Lebron list”. The cocky Cleveland Cavaliers forward has done it again. Tonight Lebron used a Oklahoma City Thunder fan as a drive-thru window for some free french fries. After grabbing a steal and going coast to coast for a layup, and a foul, Lebron stopped on the baseline to grab a french fry from a young kid seated court side with a Thunder jersey on. Not a big deal, but just another reason to hate the cocky superstar.
Over the past year Lebron has done anything, and everything, to get attention from the national media. He came out and said he wanted to participate in the dunk contest, then said maybe not. Then he showed up at a Cleveland Indians game with a Yankee cap on. Then he starts talking about the possibility of him signing with the Knicks. Then he talked some more about the 2010 free agency. Then he started talking about football and the possibility of him playing in the NFL. Then he started the talk about retiring Michael Jordan’s number league wide. Then he felt the need to do the river dance WHILE the game was going on against the Chicago Bulls. Then he felt the need to have to comment on college basketball’s rising star John Wall from Kentucky, obviously to get more media attention. Now he’s eating french fries during a game. Maybe the next time Lebron is thinking about being cocky someone should remind him of this:
I want to let it be known that I am not using “then” to start every sentence because of my poor grammar, I’m using it to point out how sickening this guy is becoming. The list goes on and on and on. And to be quite honest fans league wide are starting to become sick of it. The immaturity of “The King” is one of the reasons why he has yet to win a championship. He is much too focused on gaining attention for himself, and not focused enough on the fact that his team is far from reaching greatness.
Now we all know Lebron is good, I’ll admit that. I am not a hater and I respect the way he plays the game. The two thing I don’t respect is his poor sportsmanship and immaturity. Now I may be blowing this whole thing out of proportion but like I said IT’S SICKENING. Every other day this guy is doing something else to try to put the spotlight on himself. In all reality his just making more of an (expletive) of himself.
For the love of god, and the love of basketball, can this kid please grow up and just play the game?
