My two favorite teams are the NJ Nets and anyone playing the Miami Heat

Lebron’s tweets about Tim Tebow and Merril Hoge:

KingJamesLeBron James — Guys get on that TV and act like they was all WORLD when they played. How bout encouraging him and wishing him the best instead of hating!!

 KingJamesLeBron James — Listened to Merril Hoge today on SC and he was just blasting Tebow. The man hasn’t even play a full season and its only his 2nd year in.

 KingJamesLeBron James — Tim Tebow will succeed in the NFL. He’s a hard worker, a student of the game, a natural born leader and most of all a WINNER! It takes time and he’ll be nice (extended)

Learning from your mistakes? Mr. James?  Didn’t you learn anything from your public relations nightmares of the last year? Who is running the Lebron James “Camp”?  Someone needs to sit Mr. James down and teach him the ABC’s  of  “how not to be a public relations nightmare.” This book is also known as “How not to lose fans and sponsorship opportunities.”

Again – It’s pretty condescending to anyone who is not an All-Pro in professional sports.  Lordy. Lordy. Lordy. 

 Merril Hoge is one of the top football analysts.  Most of the time he is right on target.   Your tweets (@KingJames) show your consistent immaturity.

 Hoge’s honest assessment has nothing to do with Hoge’s playing career. Sorry if everyone can’t be the self proclaimed “King”.   That’s pretty arrogant coming from someone who has never won an NBA Championship.

 Shout out to Lebron James:  Merril Hoge has as many NBA Championships as you – ZERO.

Hey Lebron: Do you REALLY believe it’s your color…

Posted by TopOfTheThread on October 2, 2010

… or are you, in retrospect, simply so embarrassed how you handled the transition to the Miami Heat?

Lebron James Blaming Race Color

This week Lebron James played the race card as to the decline in his popularity and criticism on the manner in which he moved to the Miami Heat.

Jason Whitlock penned a great article on Foxsports.com titled “Point the finger at yourself, Lebron“.  From the article:

With his self-aggrandizing, narcissistic one-hour TV exit – The Decision – LeBron James ruined his public image, not racism. LeBron inflicted more damage to his image Wednesday night when he told CNN’s Soledad O’Brien that race is a factor in the public backlash against him since The Decision.

Lebron, just between us, do you really believe it’s race? Come on. Really. Tell me. It’s just between you and me.

When I watched the beginning of The Decision, it brought back memories of Rocky’s Apollo Creed coming into the room in an Uncle Sam costume.

I cannot know what it’s like to be a person of color in America. I cannot know what it’s like to be a multi-millionare at age 23.  I cannot know what it feels like to have people kissing my butt since I was a little kid because I was going to be a world class athlete.

I can give you a bit of advice from John Q Public.

People are smarter than you think. Do not underestimate them.  (Example:) Nobody fell for The Decision being a fundraiser for The Boys and Girls Club. We all know it was about you.

You can’t fight the press. And with the number of microphones being stuck in your face, you are bound to make some errors.

Take ownership. Take a step back.  Hire a top public relations firm.  You should worry about playing basketball.

The News The Knicks Needed To Plant Regarding Lebron James

Posted by TopOfTheThread on May 22, 2010

<You need to read the post OK Fess Up Calvin before reading this post. >

IF the Affair of Lebron Jame’s Mom with Delonte West is untrue and just big business trying to manipulate where Lebron James ends up (see post) – this is the news – that team should have released. (For this fairytale, let’s assume Calvin Murphy was paid-off and use the New York Knicks as the culprits.)

The Headline on The Huffington Post would have read:Lebron James Sweepstakes

Calvin Murphy: LeBron James’ Mother ‘Absolutely’ Had Sex With Delonte West,  Devin Harris, Blake Griffin, Derrick Rose, Michael Beasley, and Dirk Nowitzki.

Lebron can’t play with anyone who is messing with his mom. Any team that had someone who was with his mom would be immediately eliminated from the Lebron James Sweepstakes.

  • Delonte West gets him to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers.
  • Devin Harris would eliminate the NJ Nets.
  • Blake Griffin would eliminate the LA Clippers.
  • Derrick Rose would eliminate the Chicago Bulls.
  • Michael Beasley would eliminate the Miami Heat.
  • Dirk Nowitzki would eliminate the Dallas Mavericks.

And that leaves the NY Knicks.

Guys – If you are going to do it, do it right!
