King LeBron knows who's been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake

Aug 11, 2010, 8:35 AM EDT

ljames_points.jpgEver since his announcement that he was taking his talents to South Beach, LeBron James has taken a lot of criticism.

And he’s been making a list and checking it twice, of who has been naughty and nice, as he announced on his twitter account.

Don’t think for one min that I haven’t been taking mental notes of everyone taking shots at me this summer. And I mean everyone!

That, predictably, led to more backlash on twitter, where plenty of people laughed at the immaturity of the comment, some mocked him for trying to be an Internet bully, while others asking if he had taken “mental notes” on his shortcomings with the Cavaliers. The reaction was far more negative than positive afterward online.

ESPN’s Arash Markazi, in his pulled piece on hanging with LeBron for a night that the network pulled, said that LeBron seemed more like a child wrapped in a man’s body. The more we hear from him, the more that sounds like the truth. LeBron is not malicious or mean spirited, just immature. Not someone who takes into consideration the reaction to what he does or says, but rather just does it.

That twitter announcement just seems to be the latest step along those lines.

Oops. Now I’ve probably been taken note of, too.

    I am a huge Lakers fan but I understand why LeBaby left Cleveland. I would leave too if Delonte West was f-cking my mom.

    Bill…your absolutely right, Kobe was more loyal than Lebron….if it’s a loyalty contest, Kobe wins, though I say its more easy to be loyal to a beautiful woman who is loyal to you, than an inept hag who dithers and milks you (comparing the Lakers and Cavaliers organizations)
    my point is that the trash talk turns sweet when the championships arrive….there was still a lot of people chuckling at Shaq asking Kobe how his ass tasted after the Boston ’08 series, but winning turned Kobe into a champion deserving of the name. Winning will do the same for Lebron, and nobody will say Lebron rode D-Wades coatails if Wade gives ‘em say. 25-5-5 and Lebron gives ‘em 34-8-8 for the playoff run. Say what you will about lack of interest in huddles, and checking out early, Lebron playoff stats are staggering, and will be worth of MVP trophys along with the Larry O’Brian.
    anonymous, you are too funny, I’m just gonna let your comment speak for itself……you actually zeroed in on the age as the main insult….ha!

    so publicly demanding a trade on the internet, espn, etc. was kobe being loyal? i know you will defend you boy at any cost but come on…thats ridiculous
    as for lebron, look…i feel the decision was very tacky and not well thought out…but in the response he got from cleveland…im glad he publicly humiliated that city and dan gilbert…they didnt deserve a man of his talents
    i tell you what clevelanders…you can keep the 02 national championship game you guys got the refs to screw the canes on…and we will keep lebron and win many titles…fair trade?

    Chris, I agree w/you wholeheartedly! He owes nothing to anyone and so what if the “Big Three” don’t win the championship first time at the rodeo – It’s going to be a helluva season anyway, especially since every Lebron hater is praying he fails – get real – Champions don’t fail, they win – in spite of all the naysayers. I’m looking forward to my “Floyd Mayweather” moment (For you boxing fans, I am referring to the Floyd Mayweather/Shane Mosley fight when Shane damn near dropped the Pretty Boy and the Pretty Boy stepped up to the plate and showed him who the real champion was)! Don’t matter if you like him or not, the boy is good at what he does!!

    Now you ARE showing your true ignorance!! OSU is located in Columbus, not Cleveland- the difference is about 150 miles. If you’re going to be a flippin’ jackass, at least get your facts right!!

    Why is everyone so mad at this man, he can do whatever he wants on whatever team he wants to do it with. Stop hating and get a life.

    “so publicly demanding a trade on the internet, espn, etc. was kobe being loyal? i know you will defend you boy at any cost but come on…thats ridiculous”
    He was frustrated and that was his way of venting and wanting change in order to improve the team. But he let them know. And he let them and everyone also know that he really didnt want to leave (if you remember, I remember the interviews clearly) Lebron just WALKED AWAY without saying anything and thats it. Im defending logic, not Kobe. Dont compare.

  9. Jimmy Marlins Fan - Aug 12, 2010 at 2:29 PM

    it was his right to walk away
    lebron is making his own legacy and clearly doesnt care what jordan, kobe, barkley or anyone else thinks…cant that just be good enough for most people? this is still america right?
    oh thats right…in america people bitch constantly about everything all the time…its our right
    fact is…kobe is no more loyal than lebron or anyone else…need proof of that…look at that big shiny ring kobe’s wife got when he raped a girl

    People who say LBJ had a crap team are so full of it. They lost because he stood around chewing his fingernails in the finals. That was not the same player I saw that whole season. You don’t win that many games with a bad team 2 years straight. What really blew me away is in those finals Shaq looked like he was playing harder than anyone else. SHAQ! The laziest guy in basketball. It was a sad series for you Ohio folks.
    I have disliked that clown since the day he came out of the draft. Cocky and arrogant. It isn’t his fault tho. He was anointed “the king” while still in diapers. The media created that monster. Hell he was “the king” before he even played a full game in the NBA. How? I wish we could have news stories about basketball instead of LBJ all the time.
    I think there are no rings for him in Miami.

    “kobe is no more loyal than lebron or anyone else…need proof of that…look at that big shiny ring kobe’s wife got when he raped a girl”
    You’re an idiot.
    Your Miami Heat are gonna get raped.

    Jordan, Lebron, and Kobe all three are douche bags. But your point that our reaction would be this or that if Kobe said what Lebron said IS the point. Kobe did’t say it! Lebron did.
