Did you even read my post? Lots of famous people dole out money to charities, mentor kids, and don't break the law...doesn't mean they aren't a-holes.

At the end of the day, he's a narcissist who truly believes he's above everyone else. He's arrogant, when he was here...he was rude to fans and anyone who was "below him". He also quit on his team when he knew he was leaving...what kind of person does that?

 

He's back, and I love the Cavs, so I'm rooting for him hardcore...but I still don't like the guy.

 

EDIT: For the record, I feel similar (but not as strongly) about Jordan as a person lol

See, Jordan I get.  He has proven that he is a real jerk.  A very petty, grudge holding, bitter man.  (I didn't know it during his playing days, but it really came out at his HOF speech.)

 

But all of the stuff you say about LeBron I've never seen or read about.  I will take your word for it.  Well, I mean that I won't begrudge you your opinion on the guy because of have no proof that anything you say isn't true.  But for me, I'm still going with he seems like a pretty darn good guy.:beer:

I didn't like him and wade making fun of Dirk's flu during the '11 Finals; childish but I'm thinkin Wade initiated it. Dirk kicked both their asses in that series so they got their comeuppance.

And I know quite a few ricks with a p that have never been arrested.

No I had not read your post at the time.....So are you saying that you have spent enough time with LBJ to say without a doubt that he is a "he's a narcissist who truly believes he's above everyone else. He's arrogant, when he was here...he was rude to fans and anyone who was "below him". He also quit on his team when he knew he was leaving...what kind of person does that? "  The "fans" burned his jersey and the very owner of the team berated him publicly (and never apologized publicly) for the guy for basically going to work for another company after he had fulfilled his obligation. Dan Gilbert was extra petty because he I a business owner and Lebron brought him millions of dollars in revenue and net worth of the team, but then he acted like a 13 year old kid getting his heart broken when one of his employees left.  

 

If you had to interact with hundreds of people on the daily do you think that is fair to say that not every one of them is going to come out of it thinking that you are just the greatest guy. The Man is human and is stretched in 1 million different directions on the daily and this is something none of us can comprehend. You can't make everyone happy, just ask any public figure.

 

Cleveland is lucky that Lebron is the bigger Man because no one outside of Cleveland would have blamed him for never putting on a Cleveland jersey ever again after those remarks 4 years ago from the owner that were left on the teams website until just a few days ago. The Cavs are instantly worth 300 million more right now and if a title is won probably 500 million. Cleveland's economy is going to benefit greatly from LBJ being there but fortunately Cleveland he loves his home just as much as you.

 

When Jordan left the Bulls to go play baseball the next year they one 55 games, a fall off of just 2 games from the championship season prior and still made the playoffs and won a series. The year after LBJ left the Cavs their record was 61 and 21. The very next year they went 19 and 63. Explain that......

You almost think he'd want to have an indoor one.

 

Shouldn't this be its own thread now? The NBA Finals have been done for awhile now… :)

He probably has one indoors, too. 

 

It probably could be it's own thread, but it'll probably be a dead thread soon anyway...

 

PS: Just looked, 30,000 sq. ft., 19-room home that includes six bedrooms, eight full bathrooms and six half bathrooms, a recording studio, a two-lane bowling alley, a casino, theater, sports bar, aquarium, barbershop and a master bedroom suite with a two-story walk-in closet.
