LeBron James and Daniel Gibson have stupidest feud ever

Feb 27, 2011, 12:41 PM EDT

LeBron James (R) of Cleveland Cavaliers

Let’s do a little exercise. I want you to make a list of every single thing in the world that you would consider worth fighting with a friend over. From the last coffee cup in the office kitchen, to politics, to wrapping paper, to the Oscars, to sharks. Once you’re done, continue.

Now, where is “Someone claimed they were the same moniker you once adopted before you bolted for somewhere else” land?  For me, that’s pretty much at the absolute bottom, near “where does Roseanne Barr rank on the list of your favorite female comediennes,” and “Justin Bieber.”

But apparently not for LeBron James. Take it away, ESPN!

It began at a birthday party for (Daniel) Gibson and Cleveland-based DJ Steph Floss on Friday night. During the event, two witnesses told that Gibson made a reference to being the new king of Cleveland during a toast.

According to a source close to Gibson, James became upset upon hearing about the boast. The source said James and Gibson later resolved the issue because Gibson didn’t mean to insult James.But not before the drama unfolded in front of their more-than-1.5 million combined Twitter followers.

“So, first LeBron was totally like:

‘I wake up this morning to hear somebody got real fly at the mouth at their party lastnight. I see where we stand now even though I sense it!

And then Boobie was all:

‘Complaining about someones tweets is like complaining about the channel & you got the remote in your hands..

And LeBron was being all:

‘Like my OG Otie say at the time,”Get out your feelings”

So then Boobie said:

‘Life is too short to worry about what others feel & think about you.. So have fun #DoYou & Give em something to talk about

But then they totally got on the phone, and talked it out and it was so sweet, and so LeBron was all:

‘The Air Is Cleared

And then they totally went for ice cream! BFFs again!”

This concludes your Sunday morning check-in of things which are completely stupid that NBA players fight about in publicly held forums. Enjoy your day.

    No grown man should have the nickname “Boobie”

      And no bench player on the worst team in the league should be referred to as “king”

        And no one who publicly humiliates their hometown in front of the world should think that he is still the king of cleveland….

        I don’t like Lebron, but Gibson is the bubble-gum on the bottom of Lebron’s shoes.

    And no one should anoint himself “King” if he hasn’t gotten yet a Ring…

      No city should anoint a teenager the king to their city on draft day.

        Actually, ESPN and Lebron’s tattoo artist annointed him King.
