Lebron James press conference: "I love money. Bottom line."
The King himself, Lebron James, even brokered a deal with ESPN to exclusively sit down and make his announcement on national television. As if the last few weeks of "Lebron tracker" wasn't enough, now the man has commandeered a cable channel to make his much anticipated announcement. Sure, the money used during this time to sell ad space will be donated to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, which is a good thing, but really Lebron? You need to interrupt my prime time viewing of "Bethany Getting Married?" to make your announcement? (That is a question mark at the end of the title. As if to say we don't know that Bethany already got married. It happened months ago.) Lebron can't just make his announcement at 3 pm EST, like everybody else. He needs to do it in prime time because he is prime time.
Lebron, listen to me. I can call you by your first name because all I've heard about for the last month is your name. Every sports page leads off with coverage of you. I believe some sites even had a "countdown to Lebron's free agency" ticker on its page. So, Lebron, ignore the hype. Call the G.M. of the team you want to play for, tell them your decision, and let them make the announcement. The world, or people in your world I should say, is expecting you to be the King of prime time. Don't do it.
By the way, if you want to impress me Lebron, you'll go be a Los Angeles Clipper and show Kobe how a classy gentleman acts. At least you have fun with your teammates and make it rain with chalk. And that's why I'll take you over Kobe any day, despite your love of money and the spotlight. Be a man, go back to Cleveland (for a good amount of money) and win that championship for the city of Cleveland. If you leave, your individual records may be great, but in the end you'll only be known as the King of What Might Have Been.
*In no way or form do I endorse the viewing of "Bethany Getting Married?" It just happens to be on once in awhile and you all know my love of bad reality shows. I've mentioned "It's Complicated" and "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" more than a few times in these page.
