I’m an idiot. I have spent the past day listening to sports talk radio in Cleveland and Miami about the Lebron James situation: which city will he choose to play for? In the end it really is insignificant based on the fact that Hamas and Israel are bombing the shit out of each other but I am intrigued by the fact that so many people are interested in this and it’s being covered by every single media outlet.
Let’s not forget I am from Cleveland. I love and miss my hometown. I have and always will be a fan of all Cleveland sports teams. LeBron is gonna make nearly $21 million bucks in either city to throw a ball in a basket. Let’s not forget all the money he’ll make in endorsements. LeBron is not just a player he is a brand. So why hold two cities hostage by dragging out your decision? Simple: He’s a jackass!
Sociopath, narcissistic, selfish, bratty, punk, jerk, prima-donna…..any of the preceding words would fit but he also is the best basketball player on the planet. If he returns to Cleveland I will not be cheering for him directly I will be cheering for my team like I do every year.
This country is falling apart, people are out of work, the middle class is disappearing, the Middle East is ready to implode, values and common courtesy towards fellow man are disappearing and I’m concerning myself about basketball player and where he will decide to make his millions. Like I said….I’m an idiot.
