I don't understand the hate for Lebron James. I can understand the hate for Miami fans and every bandwagon fan who joined in on that, but as for James, he is clearly talented. He didn't really do anything wrong in leaving Cleveland the first time. This is basketball as a game, but at the end of the day, it is still a business.

For me, it is all about humility. I admire his talent on the court but just don't like the way he comes off as being a little pompous. Maybe I am a little too old school when it comes to that kind of thing and I am sure that a lot of it is how ESPN and the like can't stay off of his nuts long enough to talk about much of anything else during basketball season other than "King James".

The hate for Lebron is not difficult to understand.

Think about it- people like to say they lived and watched the best to ever play. For most people- who is that?

Michael Jordan.

To have someone who challenges MJ for the best ever (I'm not making that argument or comparison, but it is out there) is going to draw reactions from those who long for bygone days. They think back to their childhood of when they watched MJ, and they dont want to see someone take away that childhood wonder of watching the best ever.

Sure, even IF Lebron is the new 'best ever'...you're watching it as an adult now rather than that child-like wonder...so, we're more cynical.

Oh, and there's also the sore-loser aspects of Lebron...refusing to shake hands with opponents after certain key losses, pouting like a child, The Decision (yeah, yeah...i know, it wasn't him- it was the people around him, it was ESPN, yadda yadda yadda). Yeah, MJ might not have been the greatest person, either...but he didn't play during the same media, instant-everything environment that we have now.

What's great about what he did is he got to choose Community AND Family AND Money AND Basketball.

He's getting a max deal w/ the Cavs and they're actually the younger, fresher team. The Heat were washed up this past season (basically everyone not named Lebron or Bosh) and were the beneficiaries of the weak East competition. The Cavs are young, for sure, but they have much fresher legs and can take the shape of the container, as it were, and follow Lebron's lead.

If they can somehow swing landing Love and hang on to Wiggins they'll be the favorites in the East and it won't even be close. (And if they don't end up w/ Love they're still going to be the No. 1 or 2 seed.)

It was the perfect storm scenario for him to return home to his community, get the max contract (Which he absolutely deserves) and contend for titles moving forward.

You DO know why his nickname is "King James" right?

You DO know why he changed his jersey number from 23 to 6 right?

I do. Do you? Even if he didn't give himself the king James moniker seems extremely arrogant to refer to himself in texts. " yo this is king James wanna play together next year?" Now granted this was 4 years ago and he has grown. The player he sent it too said it was over the top do you Jordan refers to himself as his airness?

Which is why there will never be another Jordan until all of the MJ fanbois die off. Kobe, LeBron, basically anyone who has ever been anointed as the "Next Jordan" was doomed from the beginning, because the Jordan fans (who vastly outnumber those who aren't Jordan fans and thus control the narrative) will do everything in their power to make sure their king isn't dethroned on their watch.

Who the hell calls him "bron bron?"

I don't even care for him but think that's ridiculous. Not to mention I've never seen or heard that one till this thread.

The fanbois don't have to defend it as long as the Spurs boat race his teams in the finals.

Maybe there will be another MJ, but it sure as hell isn't Lebron. Anybody who has watched both of them play should laugh at the comparison. They really aren't the same kind of player, but James clearly can't hold Jordan's jock strap.
