LeBron James refers to himself in the third person, an unpardonable sin, says ATLmalcontent. There are other reasons to cheer for his comeuppance.
The self-proclaimed king abandoned his hometown, choreographed “The Decision” to throw it in Cleveland’s face then, when given an opening, played the race card to deflect his critics. But he was only thinking about the children.
“If I have to take heat to give back to kids, I would do it the same way every single time,” James said.
As the great Charles Barkley said of last summer’s LeBron-athon, “Just when you think it couldn’t get any stupider, it gets more stupid.”
So don’t feel guilty for rooting against James (rest assured his ESPN acolytes will dub you a “hater”). His defeat is an affirmation of karma and a blow to unrestrained ego.
