Lebron James needs Media Training.
After he and his team were defeated by the Dallas Mavericks, who went on to win the 2011 NBA Play offs, Lebron made some pretty interesting comments about his haters.
Check it out…
The Statements that most concern me are;
Does it bother that so many people are happy to see you fail?
“Absolutely Not, cause at the end of the day, Ummmm, all the people who are rooting for me to fail, ummm, 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 got the same personal problems they had, today. You know, and I’m gonna continue to live the way I want to live, and continue to do the things I wannna do with me and my family …they gotta get back to the real world at some point.”
I don’t know about you, and I really tried not to read to deep. I tried to sympathize with a man who just lost out on a chance to have a Championship Ring. A man who’s been hated since he left Cleveland. A man who’s not really a team player, and is stuck on a team with two other non team players, Bosh and Wade. But why the public assumption that all your haters have personal problems? Rich athletes don’t have personal problems? I beg to differ Bron Bron.
This entire statement translates as ‘Um I’m still rich, and, at the end of the day, I’ll still be rich, and the haters can gloat now, but soon they’ll have to go back to their unhappy poor lives.’
Just my thoughts.
And I’ve actually lost a bit of respect for him, for sounding so bitter and going those extra measures to belittle those who were rooting against him. What a great role model.
