Even so, the Lebron pile-on seemed a tad ridiculous to me. Dude is a twenty-something year old basketball phenom who wanted to go party in Miami and ball with his friends. Big fucking deal. He’s a kid.
Then I read about his remarks after the big loss:
In his post-game remarks Sunday night, LeBron said he does not care what people are saying about him after losing to Dallas in the NBA playoffs. AP basketball writer Brian Mahoney passed along some tasty morsels.
“They have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life they had before they woke today. They have the same personal problems they had today. I’m going to continue to live the way I want to live and continue to do the things that I want to do.
“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.”
This astonishing display of utter classlessness makes Ohio’s response that much more hilarious:
