Celebrities - LeBron James

LeBron Raymone James is an American professional basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association. A three-time "Mr. Basketball" of Ohio in high school, "King James" was highly promoted in the national media as a future NBA superstar while still a sophomore at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School. At just 18, he was selected with the number one pick in the 2003 NBA draft by the Cavaliers and signed a 90 million dollar shoe contract with Nike before his professional debut.

2 Since the last comment more than a year and a half ago, LeBron has won two championships and an Olympic gold to boot. Like him or hate him, he's a champion. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on June 21, 2013, 5:59 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

4 What do you guys expect from a guy who has been entitled and given everything since he was a kid? Plus, with his Mom's "reputation" and having no Dad in his life, the guy has no strong support system, except for his "team," which, let's be honest, is a bunch of parasites jumping on the gravy train. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 28, 2011, 2:59 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I like this markiemark guy :-D Seriously, way to tell it like it is!!! And it sure doesn't seem like there were anywhere near 12 never boned votes the last time I checked this. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on August 27, 2011, 11:11 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 For the 12 people that voted for "Never Boned" must either be hackers or 12 die-hard LeBron worshippers. I'm sorry but IMO this guy is flawed. And he's shown some arrogance alright. Having his agents confiscating tapes of a kid out-performing him at a Nike basketball event is strike one. Going to the basket and dunking countless times, only to show inconsistencies in his shooting game (especially with clutch jump-shots in crunch time), disappearing in the 4th quarter in games that truly matter and then when things don't go his way goes and blames everyone but himself for his failures and sulking about it (see the end of the 2010 East Finals in Game 5 in Cleveland v. Boston) is strike two. The penultimate icing on the cake was the "Decision Debacle" when LeBron held the NBA and the world in the perverbial chokehold during the 2010 NBA Finals on ESPN, on national TV by wasting everyone's time about the way he made the decision to take his talents to Miami. Granted he has the right to leave his team but to do it on national TV, that showed how much of a d*ck move that really was. And all the hype and hoopla about how him and the Heat were making this party and campaigning about how they're gonna win like what 4, 5, 6 rings or something like that? 1st off, LeBron hasn't even won a damn ring, let alone any MVP's. And when it came to the 2011 NBA Finals, Dallas exposed LeBron and the Heat's flaws. And to think people like ESPN overhype him as the next Michael Jordan? Earth to LeBron, until you ACTUALLY lead a team and WIN A RING (let alone 6 RINGS) you aren't even in the same league or in the same class as Michael Jordan. Michael Jordan stayed with his team and helped make his surrounding cast play better. He didn't bail and jump ship, let alone announce on national TV to go play with Larry Bird or Magic Johnson or even worse: his arch-rivals in The Pistons (whom up until 1991 always beat Jordan in the playoffs) and it took Jordan 7 years to finally win his ring, with the Bulls on top of that. Bob Costas said it best: "There will NEVER BE another Michael Jordan." -- Submitted By: (markiemark6891) on August 27, 2011, 9:16 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Crap. It looks like Soggy's really left for good. Nice work, Dolfan! (Just kidding.) I hope he reconsiders and comes back. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on July 11, 2011, 10:52 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Okay, I meant to post this like, a month ago but better late than never I suppose. Go to Theory B to find out why I feel the way I do about Lebron, it sums things up perfectly. http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/6657623/nba-finals-game-6-retro-diary -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on July 10, 2011, 7:49 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 I want Soggy back too!!! He might not believe me, but I really really do. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 23, 2011, 6:15 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Soggy, if you're lurking, please reconsider your decision. Dolfan was just disagreeing with you and showing why. He wasn't being nasty or anything. Many of us have endured users who are TRULY really nasty, and yet still stayed regulars on BTF. We once had many users--hundreds of them--but then came the vote stacking saga. Topics the stacker(s) liked had Never Boned as the top reason, and on topics they disliked, every reason but Never Boned got the top votes. At least a hundred for each reason. The grand total was THOUSANDS of stacked votes. However, the mess was cleaned up and reasons with suspected stacking were removed. But in many ways, the damage was done: Many users left, never coming back, and BTF gained a reputation as being overly political. So, in conclusion, come back Soggy. You made many good posts here. Even when it comes to ones others disagree with, you are civil in your opinion and never insulted anyone. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 23, 2011, 12:19 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 I confess. I'm not into sports that much. Hence, Mr. James holds no interest for me so I have no real opinion on him. However; thanks DolFan for reconsidering leaving. I hope Soggy reads this and decides to return as well. The two of you have the potential for great discourse even if from seemingly opposite POVs. Oh, and could someone tell shanequia I'd like HER to return,too? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 19, 2011, 7:12 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 Okay okay, you guys talked me into it. I'm staying :-) Seriously, I was touched by the support. I had no idea it would be like that, I honestly thought people would be angry at me for driving Soggy away, even if it was unintentional. And yes, I hope he comes back too, although that's out of my control unfortunately :-( Oh, and Lebron is now jealous of ME, since I'm liked by more people than he is >:-D -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 17, 2011, 6:01 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 I don't really want to get involved, but as I said before a certain amount of negativity should be expected on BTF, as with its predecessor JTS. That just happens when you discuss when something started to suck. As for LeBron, he deserves what's coming to him. Lots of pro-athletes out there DON'T get arrogant with fame and fortune. He should have followed their example. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on June 17, 2011, 1:22 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
14 I'm with those who are asking Soggy and DolFan to not leave - please don't! BTF would not be as lively without you two. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on June 17, 2011, 1:08 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
15 Yes, please stay, Soggy and DolFan. While I'm at it, please come back Shaniqua! Haven't heard from her in a while... -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on June 16, 2011, 3:02 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
16 Come on, Soggy, don't go. BTF's cast of regulars is low enough. Dolfan may be opinionated, but at least he doesn't attack people if they don't agree with him. True, constant negativity isn't good for a person, but Dolfan has said positive things here on BTF. And Dolfan, so far, nobody's blaming you for running off Soggy. Stay! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 16, 2011, 1:40 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
17 Well...shoot :-( Maybe I should leave for good now too now that I'll forever be known as the guy who ran off Soggy ):-( That's surely going to get some anger directed my way. I hate that it had to come to this. We were both just expressing ourselves, and kept going until it got out of hand. I guess I'll wait and see how bad the fallout is first. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 14, 2011, 11:59 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
18 BTW Soggy, rest assured I've spent more time and energy replying to you the past couple of days than I have "hating" Lebron. You have the right to assume I do nothing but sit around all day sticking pins in a Lebron voodoo doll in between throwing darts at a board with his face on it in a room where pictures of him with devil horns drawn on his head are covering the walls, and I have the right to be alternately annoyed and amused by all the people on the net who assume that and worse about me and every other person who sees how he really is. There's no need for us to get into a personal and long running feud over this--Lebron's not worth it. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 14, 2011, 9:35 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
19 And on that happy note, I depart BTF for good. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 14, 2011, 7:58 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
20 Let's take this one by one, shall we? "Why resist? Because I'm a grownup." And I'm not? How old do you think I am, 15? And my soul's not "corroded" either. LOL Lebron's is, but not mine. "That's why I try to balance the critical things I write on these BTF topics with positive comments. Simply put: Constant negativity isn't good for a person." Oh please, you were going to STOP posting here altogether not too long ago, don't play me like that. "Besides, as I have pointed out in a number of BTF posts, the American Stardom Machine - which ultimately is all of us - places impossible expectations and demands and pressures on talented young people - especially actors and athletes - for which they are often not emotionally or psychologically prepared." Talented young people??? If that was coming from anyone else I'd assume it was a joke but I know you're actually serious :-O The reason I can't stand celebs is because almost none of them have talent! They just get handed money and fame "just because" and proceed to actually act like they deserve it, HA!!! "LeBron James was given too much, too fast, and too much has been demanded of him in return." And that's the way it ought to be. Would you rather NOTHING be demanded of him in exchange for all his money and fame? How fair would THAT be? "I can hardly begin to imagine the pressures he has been under." Oh yes, what a victim, being forced to air The Decision on live TV--oh wait, he did that of his own free will, never mind. "In the sense that he handled the Cleveland departure very poorly - due largely to having received very bad advice from his so-called friends - I can understand the temptation to gloat at how the bad karma he has generated has come back on him." You *say* you can understand, but all your other comments say otherwise. If you could understand you wouldn't have made your last post. "Hell, I was a Seattle resident when Alex Rodriguez ditched the Mariners for a quarter-billion bucks. I shared the general Seattle bitterness toward the guy, and for years I relished every subsequent setback in his career." Were you a grownup then? :-) "But it occurred to me one day that I was angry at A-Rod for failing to place my demands on him above his demands on himself, and from that moment I dropped my foolish grudge and just accepted him as a very good ballplayer." Who said I was "angry" with Lebron? Another assumption you've made, tsk tsk. "This is what I'm trying to do with LeBron too (and also with Tiger Woods)." Yes, let's just totally ignore the fact Tiger Woods is a big time philanderer just because he hits a golf ball well. (Rolls eyes.) "And finally, the older I get, the less attractive I find following herds and adopting a herd mentality. This gleeful I-Hate-LeBron-James craze I see gripping the country is very much a herd thing. (Or more accurately a school-of-piranha thing.)" Nope, I came up with my scorn of Lebron all on my own, didn't need anyone else's help. And aren't *you* adopting the "herd" mentality of calling anyone who thinks like me a "hater"? Seriously, I wish I could steal the h key off everyone's keypad so they'd at least have to find another word to use. At least you haven't used it--yet. More people than ever before in American history have been handed money and fame who don't deserve it, and pointing that out when their hubris gets out of control doesn't make me part of any "herd" or "corrode" my soul. It means I'm simply not afraid to point out the obvious. If the emperor has no clothes, what good does it do anybody to NOT mention it? -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 14, 2011, 6:59 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
