LeBron James may still be making a strong case for the 2012-13 regular season MVP, but he is not considered basketball royalty yet. Unbeknownst to those who consistently frown upon his accomplishments, he is a pretty good player.
However, James has a ways to go before he can become a pillar of perfection in the professional basketball community. Hell, he has a mountain to climb before he can even be considered the best. His raw talent is unquestionable, as are his late-game finishes and anything else a heckler can come up with to decipher his prior and 2012 NBA season shortcomings.
There are flocks of fans just waiting for their season tickets to be of use so that they can sit courtside and shout obscenities at the league’s favorite punching bag, or at least that is what he considers himself.
Just take the Wizards’ fan that took the obvious high road and brought up the sensitive subject of Delonte West and LeBron’s mother. LBJ responded in the most reasonable way for the general public, but in a way that is unbecoming of a man in the spotlight.
What else could LeBron’s “haters” say? What else has James given them as fuel to the not-to-nice screams tossed at him from the sidelines?
