It's not like anyone denies his talent. Nobody, especially now that he finally has a ring, says, "LeBron James is overrated."
It's just that he's a jerk. And that his ego is bigger than Texas.
He turned on a city that worshiped him in the worst possible way. Announcing his decision to leave the Cavaliers to sign with the Miami Heat during a one-hour, prime time spectacle on national television. As far as Cleveland was concerned, South Beach was actually hell.
And that's just the worst thing he's done.
James, or "the King," has a lot of haters.
But lately, it seems that James, who actually sports a back tattoo that reads "Chosen 1," is on a campaign to improve his image. In recent weeks he's had two endearing interactions with fans.
First, he tackled a fan and gave him a massive, teddy bear hug when the fan made a half-court shot to win $75,000. James' giddy celebration showed a fun and charming side to him that has rarely shined through.
Could LeBron be turning over a new leaf? Is it just a PR move in the race for MVP? We don't know what it is yet, but it's definitely making one of sport's most-hated personalities more likable.
Is the world convinced yet? Probably not. The King has more ground to cover before he evens the score. Before you decide, let's take a look back at six of James' worst moments.
