Video: LeBron with off-backboard dunk, no love for fan

Nov 9, 2011, 9:59 AM EDT

This cracked me up this morning.

LeBron James dropped 43 at the Rudy Gay All-Star Game Tuesday night in Memphis (which raised money for Gay’s foundation) and by all reports it was quite a show. That includes the off-the-backboard pass and dunk by LeBron.

But the best part of this video is him leaving the fan hanging. That’s funny.

    To Lebron, nothing matters but Lebron. There are no fans. There is just Lebron. It is all about how can he get what he wants with as little effort as possible.

    Honestly, one of the reasons I don’t mind if they cancel the season is the arrogance the players show on a consistent basis. And Lebron, IMHO, is the poster-boy for that arrogance. My dislike of the NBA has been growing every year because of this and it felt like the last off season, the season of Lebron, it finally exploded. That is one reason, again IMHO, that many fans side with the owners. We are just tired of the arrogance the players exhibit.

    The truth is, the NBA started losing me as a fan a number of years ago due to these issues. Every year, I grow a little more indifferent to these fools. This strike just gives me a reason to cheer for it’s demise in it’s current form and also a glimmer of hope that maybe if the players get slapped around a little, the arrogance will disappear for a while. (I know, fat chance of that happening.)

    I still believe that one constant aspect of all sports is that we fans cheer for teams, not players. Players change from year to year, but I always cheer for my team. It is not about the players, it is about the teams. We cheer for the players on our team, but if they went to another team, well, not so much. We might even boo them when they come back.

    I also believe that if you were to take all of the current players and replace them with new ones, within, at the most, half a season, you would have the same level of fan interest as before. I am not saying the same number of fans, that may take a little longer. But, even that, within tree years, I think it would be the same. That is because people cheer for teams, not players, The NBA lives through the retirement of superstars constantly and they are replaced by new ones. This would be no different.

    {I now step off my soap box – and I will ignore Lebron if he tries to high-five me.}

    What was on the sign she was holding? Maybe that had something to do with his reaction.
