LeBron compares his situation with Brett Favre, Packers. Of course he does.

Wasn’t it inevitable that the LeBron James and Brett Favre story lines would merge?

Before the Heat took on the Bucks Monday night in Milwaukee, James was asked if he could relate to what Favre went through with his bitter departure from the Packers, and the Associated Press has his answer.

“Brett (had) great years here in Green Bay, and any time a great competitor like that leaves, no one wants to see that, but they’ve done a great job of regrouping with Aaron Rodgers and I believe that Cleveland will do the same,” James said.

The Packers are 8-4 and in the playoffs hunt this season. The Cavaliers are a couple years away from their own Rogers an being playoff competitive.

LeBron’s comments frankly are pretty innocuous, but I’m sure someone will spin it about how this ties into his ego. Whatever. At least LeBron hasn’t sent women pictures of his junk.

The Heat beat the Bucks 88-78, and James had 17.

    Big difference between LBJ leaving the Cavs and Favre leaving the Packers is that the Packers forced Brett away. I guess you could say that Cleveland forced LBJ away by sucking as a city, and giving him teammates like Mo Williams, but it’s still not the same.

      Didn’t Favre retired before he was “forced out” of Green Bay?
