They Don’t Call Him King James For Nothing

Clearly, his unmanning in the NBA Finals didn’t imbue LeBron James with a sense of humility.

From the Boston Globe:

When asked if he was bothered that many people root against him because of the manner in which he signed with Miami, James said: “Absolutely not. Because at the end of the day, all the people that was rooting on me to fail, they got to wake up tomorrow and have the same life that they had before they woke up today, same personal problems that they had today. And I’m going to continue to live the way I want to live and do the things that I want to do. They get a few days of being happy about the Miami Heat not accomplishing their goal, but they got to get back to the real world at some point.”

Right – back to their insignificant little lives, while LeBron James gets to wake up tomorrow being . . . LeBron James, who lives the way he wants to live and does the things he wants to do.

Except win the NBA Championship.

    It’s all about his bad attitude. People hoped for his failure because of the crass way in which he handled his departure from Cleveland. Lots of great athletes never win a championship. Ernie Banks, Ted Williams (although he had an attitude problem in his playing days), Dan Marino, just to mention three, but I don’t thing they ever quit on their teams, or displayed the petulance has throughout his career, and especially after these playoffs. He may be a talented athlete and a successful NBAer, be he’s never grown up. He went from being a pampered, idolized schoolboy basketball player directly into being the same thing in the NBA. He’s never had to be responsible, to be a mature person, and going straight from HS to the pros deprived him of the years to learn how to.
