A lot of you just saw the title and are ready to bash me in the comment boards but hear me out first.
This article is not directed towards full NBA fans.
It is directed to the casual fans, like me, and to the non-fans.
I, and some other non-NBA fans are tired of every single day, the only thing ESPN talks about is who Lebron will sign with. For me, i really couldn't give a damn.
I realize that he is probably one the most famous players of our generation, and it is very important to the NBA fans who he will sign with but it is very tiring to me.
To me, with all of this attention he is getting makes him look egotistical and greedy. He keeps delaying his decision in order for the teams interested to give him more money, and for the fans to pay more attention to him.
Although i might be being a little mean to Lebron, because it might not even be his fault. It may be ESPN and every other sports website constantly giving predictions and analyzing every possible thing that could determine who he signs with and they put it as their top story every hour.
You can't be just biased towards the big players and big teams. It gets annoying to the average, casual NBA fan like me and it makes me not want to watch the NBA because all they will talk about is who Lebron signed with. It's kinda like when the Royals play the Yankees, and i won't want to watch it because they will just talk about the Yankees and how amazing they are, no matter what the score is.
I guess what i'm trying to say is that ESPN and the other sports websites need to tone it down when it comes to Lebron's free agency.
He's making his decision on Thursday? Great, now show me a story about the World Cup or the MLB.
Let the Debate Begin....
