LeBron James is a Genius. Haters abound!
In the wake of King James’ decision to leave the big Cleve, I came across something that legitimately pissed me off. And it’s Friday. I don’t enjoy being pissed off on a Friday. The article is titled “Now Hated, LeBron James Makes Worst PR Move in History.” I rarely comment on things, but I decided to leave words for the writer of this ridiculous piece, and they are reprinted for my readers below:
“No one outside of Cleveland is mad at LeBron for leaving. He made the same move many business professionals make when offered the chance to stretch and grow in the workplace. If you had the chance to work side by side with the best business thought leaders in the world, would you? How is this different? Worst PR?? Best PR I’ve ever seen. Even my great aunt was watching ESPN last night.
He has to stay in Cleveland forever to be considered a loyal, humble man? He didn’t shoot himself in the foot, or do drugs , or sleep with strippers… he made a strategic business move that, if you recall , cost him money . If anything, children should take from this that in life, we must make hard decisions, and not always the ones that are going to make people like us.
“Now Hated, LeBron Makes Worst PR Move in History?” Really? Talk about hyperbolic. This is the kind of rhetoric that pisses me off.”
Were we rivited by the antics? Yes. Were some disappointed that he didn’t end up in their cities? Most definitely. Are Cleveland fans upset? Rightfully so. Should his jersey be burned? Absolutely not. Cleveland fans put all their championship eggs in the LeBron basket, and are now faced with the harsh reality that they might be waiting another 50 years to win a giant trophy and hold a fun parade. That stings. Houstonians, we know the pain of how elusive a championship – in ANY sport – can be. But face it Cleveland, THAT’S what you’re upset about, not the three-ring circus that has transpired in the last few days leading up to “The Decision,” as ESPN has titled it. Please weigh in. What do you think?
