As the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder battle it out for the ultimate prize in the NBA, the spotlight—as it always is in the NBA—is on the superstars on the court.

For the Thunder, Kevin Durant and Russel Westbrook are the two big names. Although Dwyane Wade remains the heart and soul of the team, it is clear LeBron James is the biggest star on the team.

Not only the team but James is also likely the biggest star in the NBA. Hearing that line would lead one to believe James has a bevy of fans, but this is not the case, as he is one of the most hated sports figures in recent memory, even possibly of all time.

"The Decision" will forever be etched in the minds of sports fans for years to come. Despite being one of the most talented players to ever step onto the court, James simply can't shake the negative image that follows the superstar wherever he goes.
