“At the end of the day, all the people that was rooting on me to fail – at the end of the day they have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life that they had before they woke up today. They have the same personal problems they had today … they can get a few days or a few months or whatever the case may be on being happy about not only myself, but the Miami Heat not accomplishing their goal, but they have to get back to the real world at some point.” – Miami Heat forward LeBron James, June 12, 2011.
I really wanted to shorten this to a profane two-word phrase that rhymes with “duck him” but I’ve got something better to say about the petulant, narcissistic man-child known as LeBron James. He thinks he’s a coddled superstar, but once again he proved he’s the greatest player in the National Basketball Association as long as there’s no pressure on him to win.
LeBron is incapable of performing in the fourth quarter of games that matter. THAT is the reality I’m returning to when I wake up in the morning.
