There are ways to handle things and there are ways to look like a total jerk. Personally I think Dan Gilbert and Lebron are acting like little girls. Gilbert is sounding like the little wuss who got dumped and Lebron just can’t let it go. He may think he’s being the bigger man but every single time he opens his mouth it’s drama and it’s dumb.
This crap goes beyond the game of basketball and it’s truly upsetting. How hard would it be to say to the press, “I don’t want to discuss this anymore. Dan is free to have his opinions. I just want to get to practice and focus on winning a championship.” If Lebron said that, shut up, and didn’t say shit until the season he would have my respect and surely many others.
But the man is a show. A great player but also a show. I for one am hating him more and more and you have to imagine there’s some former NBA guys that must be furious…..
Guy must be thinking to himself “I was far and away one of the worst athletes in the history of basketball and look how good I was. This guy can’t win a championship? He’s bitching about Cleveland? What a puss. Get this guy out of the league. What a waste of talent.” I wouldn’t blame Larry Bird. Clearly one of the most fierce competitors in the history of basketball and I wouldn’t be surprised if he talked a ton of shit about Lebron behind closed doors.
We already know that Sir Charles hasn’t approved of Lebron’s move and I’m sure Barkley is infuriated at the latest drama taking place. I just wish Charles would have won a championship but that doesn’t mean Barkley didn’t care about the game. Lebron cares more about the “game” not basketball.
Johnson may be a commentator and his job is to praise how good people are but let’s be real here. This is the guy who competed with Larry Bird and made the NBA spectacular. You think deep down he isn’t stewing at all of this? How Lebron is essentially making a mockery of these proceedings. And considering the two players are large point guard types (yes I know Bron is a forward but come on) Johnson’s gotta be annoyed at this crap.
Jordan doesn’t like Lebron only because he’s a threat to Jordan being hailed as the greatest ever. Good thing for Jordan that it’s not Lebron who will threaten. Only Kobe Bryant as that distinction.
I could just see Russell hating Lebron. Russell was clearly a “shut and play the game” kind of a guy. No way he likes all this buffonery. Which reminds me. I’m sure Bill Walton is sickened by all of this too.
