This is an attempt to get cheap reads. The very mention of LeBron has created a Pavlovian response amongst Bleacher Report, either to furiously defend him, or to quickly denounce them. This turns into name-calling, taunting, and even the chilling possibility of sports terrorism highlighted in this article (shameless self-promotion.)
What I don't get is this, not too many LeBron arguments are smart. They're all the same. Is he better than Kobe? Is Kobe better than him? Is he a punk for what he did? Jesus Christ! I'm sick of it, and I'm a Heat fan!
Then there's the whole "I hate how they did it, I hate superteams" thing a lot of you are on, while praising the Boston Celtics. Oh but there's a difference, Danny Ainge traded for them. Funny because, last I checked, KG had a no-trade clause in his contract and turned down the first trade to the Celtics. It wasn't until Ray Allen was added to the mix that KG agreed.
In joining up together, even if it was in their own choice and not masterful planning by Pat Riley (which it was in a sense) they did something that's completely American; they decided to play together to create a team using the current rules in place.
Now I've seen a so-called "business major" on here saying that companies don't do that. Yet I distinctly remember in the 1990's that a former Disney executive, a record mogul and Hollywood's best director did just that and started their own studio. They're now known as Dreamworks. What they did was capitalistic and American in every sense of the word, it showed individual freedom, and people who jumped at the opportunity to do something special. If its ok for a GM to do it via trade, then it's completely ok for players to do it themselves via FREE agency, key word, FREE!
The point is, LeBron is so hated, but one of the things he's hated for is that he's an "attention whore" who's "bigger than the game." So to show your anger at LeBron for this, you spend your time commenting on any article that has LeBron in it, criticize his every tweet and every move, and thereby giving him your attention. How the hell am I supposed to take YOU and your cockamamie arguments seriously?
See LeBron isn't the punk, no haters, YOU ARE THE PUNKS! Get a life! Focus on your fantasy teams, your NFL team, your girlfriends, boyfriends, wife, husband, kids, grandkids, or dog. If you hate LeBron so much and hate that he's commanding so much attention, then STOP GIVING HIM YOUR FULL AND UNDIVIDED F**KING ATTENTION YOU POSERS!
Then there's the "Legacy" thing everyone throws up with LeBron. Here's my answer as to whether he's going to "tarnish" his legacy by going to Miami, provided by Merriam-Webster and verified by dictionary.com, Oxford, and The American Heritage Dictionary.
Legacy noun,plural: anything handed down from the past, as from an ancestor or predecessor: the legacy of ancient Rome.
HIS LEGACY HASN'T BEEN WRITTEN YET YOU BOZOS! Legacies are written when everything is said and done! If you overzealous nutjobs took your heads from out of your backsides and picked up a damn dictionary for once in your life, you'd see that! A Legacy is anything handed down FROM THE PAST! LeBron is the PRESENT AND FUTURE! So why all the talk about legacy when we don't know?
I know this is long and coming off harsh, just I didn't want to deal with writing another stupid article about it, which I just did in the middle of what's supposed to be an NFL preview. If you read it this far, congrats, here's a treat from across the pond coming up next. If you didn't, you missed out on someone go ham using common sense and logic. We'll be back after this.
